Man United Keep A Close Eye On 6 Ft 1 In African Defensive Rock
Nicolas Nkoulou has popped up on the radar of Man United over a move in the summer transfer window. Cameroon international, who could be ready to leave Torino as a free agent, is also being tailed by Leeds United. Nicolas joined the Serie A outfit from Lyon in the summer of 2017 and has since been a mainstay at the defence for the club…..Man United Keep A Close Eye On 6 Ft 1 In African Defensive Rock
To date, Nkoulou has played 128 games for Il Toro and has become one of the most underrated footballers in Italy at present. His stock has fallen to some extent this campaign, but the 30-year-old player looks to have many admirers, especially considering the fact that he will be available on a free transfer in the summer.
Chasing his signature are Red Devils, who have been touted to be in the market for a defender ahead of the summer. Harry Maguire has been nearly ever-present at the heart of the Red Devils back-line since his arrival at Man United.
However, the Englishman has not had a consistent partner, especially this campaign, with Victor Lindelof struggling from a chronic back issue, whereas Axel Tuanzebe has not been able to remain fit for a stretched period.
In addition, with Eric Bailly also dealing with a glut of injury issues over the course of his stint with Red Devils, it is imperative for Man United to sign a defender who can be a constant alongside Maguire. To that end, Pau Torres is one of the players considered to be a target by the Red Devils, with Nkoulou now also emerging on their radar.
