The White Sox are attempting to attack their needs at second base. 

The South Siders have expressed interest in acquiring Kansas City Royals infielder Nicky Lopez via trade, according to a report from The Athletic. 

The report details the Royals aren't keen on trading Lopez, as they see him as a valuable depth piece and a useful utility player. Nevertheless, if the White Sox front office can package an enticing offer, they may be able to pull off a trade for the versatile infielder. 

Lopez, 27, is heading into his fifth season in the majors. He's spent the first four seasons of his career with the Royals. During that time, he's played every position in the infield with the exception of first base.
