Man City defender Aymeric Laporte ready to leave

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte is seeking a move away.

Laporte has reportedly expressed his desire to leave the club, which could face City with a centre-back crisis - something they know all too well from recent seasons, says the Mirror.

With Eric Garcia already leaving the club, an exit for Laporte would leave Nathan Ake as the only senior back-up to Ruben Dias and John Stones, who were influential last season.

The Spaniard was the original answer to City's centre-back issues, and thrived during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons, but struggled for game time last year due to the success of the Stones/Dias partnership.

Laporte has four years to run on his City contract.
