Former Manchester City forward Rodney Marsh has urged the club to make a move for Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana.
Fofana joined Leicester from French club Saint-Etienne in the summer of 2020 for an initial transfer fee reported by The Daily Mail to be worth £32 million.
The youngster has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water and has already established himself as an important player in manager Brendan Rodgers’s team.
The former City forward was impressed by the performance of Fofana during Leicester’s 1-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League at the weekend.
Marsh has said that he has watched the 19-year-old defender a number of times, and has urged City to pay £75 million and add John Stones in a deal to bring the French teenager to the Etihad Stadium.

They could have put a bid in a couple of months back when Leicester did. Stop being a plonker

Or maybe they should have done their homework and signed him before Leicester did.

He’ll be the best defender in the world. I’ve never seen anyone like him. He’s just Brilliant and he’s not 20 year. Still growing…..

£75 million , ? Nah he is slow , can’t read a tackle , can’t head the ball and is still too young . Kyle Walker is the man
