The 28-year-old would be a very good addition for Manchester City and they can afford him as well.

According to the report in British Media, Manchester City could turn to the Southampton defender in January to fill the void left by the absence of injured Benjamin Mendy.

How strong that interest is and whether Manchester City will make a winter move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
