According to WhoScored, who is City's top Premier League goalscorer so far this season?

The report claims that City boss Pep Guardiola wants to sign the Italian, who he sees as the “perfect defender” for his side this summer.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from City fans who were eager to have their say on this latest news.

Would Bonucci be a better defensive option than Stones or Otamendi?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Here’s a sample of City fans responding to the post:

The 32-year-old, who is currently valued at £22.5 million according to Transfermarkt, has made 25 appearances in Serie A so far this season, resulting in the Italian earning a season rating of 6.84 for his participation in the league (per WhoScored). Now that it has been reported that Guardiola is a big admirer of the defender and wants to bring him to Manchester this summer, this news has not gone down well with a lot of City fans.

What do we think?

It seems that despite Guardiola’s reported admiration for Bonucci, this has done very little to sway these City fans’ opinions on the Juventus man.
