Tosin Adarabioyo is set to leave Manchester City on a permanent deal, according to a report from the Manchester Evening News, with West Ham United and Fulham keen on landing the centre-back.
Adarabioyo went into this season off the back of a very impressive loan spell at Blackburn Rovers last season.
The Manchester Evening News notes that he is into the final year of his contract with the Cityzens. And it is suggested that he could be allowed to leave for a low fee before the initial window closes.
The report adds that West Ham and Fulham are keen on Adarabioyo. So it will be interesting to see if either club manages to agree a fee with City.
It would be a boost for the Hammers to bring Adarabioyo in in the final hours of the window. David Moyes’s men have so far only added Vladimir Coufal to their ranks.
And they have gone into this week off the back of two impressive results in the Premier League.
They do need further reinforcements at the heart of their defence. And the 23-year-old looks to be an exciting prospect who should develop further in the coming years.
But with Fulham desperately needing to strengthen their own options at the back, the Hammers may have a battle on their hands.
But the promising news is that Manchester City expect to sell the youngster before the deadline passes.
