James Tarkowski

Former Premier League champions Leicester City are plotting a move for Burnley defender James Tarkowski this summer in the event that star defender Harry Maguire leave the Club this summer.

England international centre back Maguire has emerged as a top priority for Manchester United on the defensive front.

James Tarkowski has formed a potent centre back partnership with Burnley skipper Ben Mee since his move to the Clarets from English Championship club Brentford.

The Three Lions of England defender has previously been linked with a move to North London giants Arsenal but he could end up as the replacement for Manchester United-linked defender Harry Maguire.

Manchester United want to sign a new centre back this summer and the aforementioned Maguire is the overwhelming favourites to fill that position at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils conceded a lot of goals in the Premier League in the last campaign and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to address that issue when the new season starts in one month.

Manchester United recently made a £70m bid for Harry Maguire but the said offer was rejected by Leicester City who do not want to lose the services of their best defender after just two years at the club.
