City are said to have an interest in signing Lyon defender, 6ft 3in tall Mouctar Diakhaby.

According to The Sun, the club’s director of football Txiki Begiristain accompanied by assistant coach Mikel Arteta travelled to watch the France under-21 star in performance on Thursday 19th October.

Pep Guardiola at the moment has Vincent Kompany missing in action as the skipper continues to battle with injury issues. And it appears that Man City could be at the moment set to turn to Diakhaby as a long term replacement.
