Man City eyeing Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard

Manchester City are eyeing Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard.

Süddeutsche Zeitung says Pavard has been one of the stars of the World Cup with France and is now attracting interest in the transfer market.

The Stuttgart star can play both at right-back and centre-back and is in line for a big move.

Bayern Munich appeared to be the front runners, but now Manchester City have made their move.

Pep Guardiola will hope to beat off competition from Bayern and Real Madrid for the French defender.

The 22-year-old's stunner vs Argentina has shown his technical excellence and Guardiola will hope to convince him to walk away from the Bundesliga and move to the Premier League.
