West Ham and Leeds could be set to battle it out for Manchester City centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo according to an exclusive report from TEAMtalk.

Hammers boss David Moyes will want to bolster his central defensive ranks at the London Stadium.
And the same could be said of Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road. That is in spite of the west Yorkshire outfit’s recent acquisition of Robin Koch.
West Ham have already been offered the chance to sign Manchester City ace Adarabioyo for just £8 million according to high level insiders Claret and Hugh.
And it seems as though the Hammers may now have to battle Leeds for the defender’s signature.
TEAMtalk claims the Whites have entered the race to sign the 22-year-old. And Pep Guardiola has allegedly agreed to sell him for around £8 million, albeit reluctantly.
Adarabioyo would be a very useful addition for either Leeds or West Ham.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan in the Championship with Blackburn Rovers.
In 34 league outings, Adarabioyo racked up three goals and averaged 0.9 tackles, 1.9 interceptions and 4.7 clearances per game. He also won an average of 3.2 aerial duals per match (Who Scored).
The youngster is clearly very talented. Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola raved about the centre-back three years ago, when speaking to the Daily Mail:
“Tosin has a lot of steps to get him better. It’s not done, but he has all the quality.”
The 22-year-old is clearly a very good young player with great potential.
We could really do with the City ace at the London Stadium this season. But whether we are able to beat Leeds to his signature remains to be seen.
