Manchester City on the verge of signing 19-year-old centre-back Isaak Touré
Manchester City are closing in on the signing of highly-rated Le Havre centre-back Isaak Touré.
The 19-year-old defender is set to sign a long-term contract with the Citizens in the coming days before being sent on loan to Troyes for the upcoming season.
The French youth international garnered interest from a number of clubs across Europe, and has chosen to join the Premier League champions this summer.
L’Equipe are reporting that several sides from France and Germany expressed an interest in signing Toure during the winter window, though the 19-year-old chose to remain with Le Havre and made 16 appearances in Ligue 2 last season.
Toure could become City’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, whilst Pep Guardiola is also understood to be interested in additions at full-back and central midfield.
