Manchester City would love to sign Leicester City and former Manchester United defender Johnny Evans according to Greame Souness. He advised the Citizens to make a summer bid for the Northern Ireland defender and he will be a valuable addition to their backline.
Leicester City have been in fine form this season, and they are 3rd in the Premier league table. Evans has been a key member in Brendan Rodger’s impressive side.
The center back had history with the Red Devils, he made 198 appearances across his 9 year stay in Manchester, before moving to West Brom in 2015. Since Joining the Foxes in 2018, he has been transformed and Souness is impressed with his display that he described as a revelation.
Souness stated that it will be a positive move for Manchester City to add the player in the summer, and he could be a reliable deputy for the injury prone Aymeric Laporte. He also believed he was an upgrade on Nicolas Otamendi.
The Liverpool legend considers the 31-year-old as one of the most important figures in Brendan Rodger’s side. The Foxes are third on the log and they are expected to make the top four and qualify for the Champions league next season.
Evans joined Manchester United as a 9-year-old boy. He went through the youth ranks and made his debut for the club on 26 September 2007 against Coventry City in the Football League Cup. Unfortunately, his debut ended in a 2–0 defeat.
He then appeared as a late substitute for Gerard Pique in a UEFA Champions League match at home to Dynamo Kyiv on 7 November 2007 to secure Manchester United’s qualification to the knockout stage of the competition. He subsequently made his first Champions League start on 12 December 2007 against Roma.
