Manchester City are reportedly hoping to sign Josko Gvardiol from RB Leipzig before the summer transfer window closes.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City have already agreed personal terms with Josko Gvardiol. And the 21-year-old RB Leipzig defender is keen on moving to the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Bundesliga giants value him at around €100 million.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester City can agree on a fee with RB Leipzig now. Fresh talks are planned between both parties in the next few days. Manchester City have identified the central defensive position as an area that needs reinforcements, and Gvardiol could prove to be a sensational long-term acquisition.

The 21-year-old central defender is regarded as one of the best young defenders in the world, and he could improve an already loaded Manchester City team immensely. Apart from his ability to operate as a central defender, he can play as a full-back as well. His versatility will be an added bonus for Pep Guardiola and Manchester City.

The Croatian international was outstanding in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and he is far from his peak. He is likely to improve further and develop into a world-class player in the near future. Working with a world-class coach like Guardiola will only help him develop and fulfil his tremendous potential.

Aymeric Laporte has been linked with a move away from the club, and Manchester City will have to fill that void. The Premier League champions recently completed the treble and will be hoping to chase major trophies once again next year.

Gvardiol has been linked with clubs like Liverpool in the past. But the Reds are unlikely to be able to afford him. RB Leipzig will demand a premium for his services, and Manchester City certainly have the finances to get the deal across the line. The player is likely to cost around €100 million.

The 21-year-old Croatian international deserves to play at the highest level, and he will be hoping to compete for major trophies with Manchester City. He has the ability to make an immediate impact in the Premier League and it remains to be seen whether he can hit the ground running.
