Man City consider England U21 as Kyle Walker’s long-term replacement – report

Manchester City have begun monitoring the performances of Crystal Palace’s impressive young right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the Daily Mirror reports.

Wan-Bissaka, 20, has caught the eye with some excellent performances for Roy Hodgson’s side and that has alerted a number of clubs, including Everton and City, despite the league champions having no immediate need of a new right-back.

With Kyle Walker, 28, and Danilo, 27, on the books, City will not be buying a right-back any time soon, but are always thinking ahead and when the need does arrive for a player in that position, Wan-Bissaka will come under consideration.

According to the Mirror, City have made a ‘number of discreet enquiries’ to Palace about Wan-Bissaka and may be laying down the foundations for a future bid if the young talent is still at Selhurst Park when the Blues next decide to invest in a right-back.
