Report: Manchester United looking to beat Wolves to Edmond Tapsoba signing

Wolves and Leicester City could both miss out on signing Bayer Leverkusen defender, Edmond Tapsoba, with Manchester United now keen.

According to The Express, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eyeing up Tapsoba as he looks to bring in a new defender to Old Trafford this summer.

It is claimed a £44m deal may be on the cards, the the 22-year-old said to have a release-clause in his Bayer contract.

News of the potential deal for United will come as a blow to both Wolves and Leicester. The report states that both clubs have watched Tapsoba over the last 12 months, with eyes firmly on a potential deal this summer.

The Burkina Faso man signed for Leverkusen in a deal worth a reported £21.5m. Since then, he has gone from strength to strength, sealing a regular slot in defence for the Bundesliga outfit.

Tapsoba certainly appears to look the part. He is big, strong, quick across the ground, and at 22, has ample time to develop his game further.

Leicester scored a big win in the market last summer with the signing of Wesley Fofana. Wolves, meanwhile, need someone in the door, given their reliance on Conor Coady at centre-half.

Man United’s interest here does scupper things a tad. However, United get linked with a host of players, so Wolves and Leicester fans should not discount the prospect of seeing Tapsoba arrive just yet.
