According to the football transfer rumours in German Media, Manchester City are linked with a move for Bayer 04 Leverkusen right-back Benjamin Henrichs.

Benjamin Henrichs has joined Bayer 04 Leverkusen from Bayer 04 Leverkusen U19 in 2015. The 20 year-old has a valid contract with Bayer 04 Leverkusen until June 2020.

The 20-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Germany.

Benjamin Henrichs has represented Germany at Under-15, Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 38 caps and scoring eight goals, before making his senior international debut in November 2016. As a member of Germany national football team, Henrichs has won only one cap.

The Germany international is a player who has impressed many European Clubs in the last season, and it is understood that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola would prefer playing Henrichs as a right-back. He would be perfect replacement for Pablo Zabaleta.
