Aymeric Laporte considering changing international allegiance?

Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte reportedly considers changing his international allegiance from France to Spain.

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte is allegedly considering switching his international allegiance to Spain after failing to secure a spot in France's World Cup squad.

The centre-back, who is eligible to play for both countries, is yet to earn a senior cap for Les Bleus despite making their squad for World Cup qualifiers.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Spain are seeking fresh blood at centre-back following their exit from the World Cup and are ready to make another attempt to convince Laporte to change his allegiance.

The 24-year-old is said to be open to the possibility as a means of playing regularly at international level.

Laporte is City's record defensive signing, having joined the club from Athletic Bilbao in a £57m deal.
