Soyuncu has been one of the Premier League’s best central defenders this season and has helped Leicester City into second after 12 games. The Turkey international has played in each of these fixtures and also scored a goal and assisted for the Foxes in that time.
The 23-year-old has certainly been one of the main strengths in Leicester establishing the best defensive record in the league, as the club have conceded just eight goals – two less than leaders Liverpool.
City, on the other hand, have struggled in this regard and fell into fourth as a result of their defensive woes. However, despite the clear need for reinforcements in the absence of Aymeric Laporte, not all the supporters are sold on the idea of bringing in Soyuncu.
Some fans believe the reported £42.7m is not going to cut it with Leicester, as they sold Harry Maguire for £80m.
Certain supporters would be happy with securing his signature, but other fans have pointed to the idea of bringing in Ruben Dias from Benfica instead.
Here’s how some City fans have reacted to the report…
If you lot think Leicester will sell their best cb in a year they’re pushing top 4 in January for 50 m leaving only Evans y’all wild they’re not gonna sell and if they do will be a hell of a lot more than 50 @

Honestly I don’t rate this guy… let’s go for a more taller, bigger , faster and more athletic defender. Someone in the mould of Koulibabily or Kompany
