Manchester City are currently 11 points behind league leaders Liverpool on the Premier League table. Whilst based on Liverpool’s current form it’s fair to say that the title race is already over, we cannot afford to count Man City out just yet due to the Premier League’s unpredictable nature as well as the sheer goalscoring power of Pep Guardiola’s side.
With the January transfer window set to open up next month here’s a look at 5 players City could sign when the winter window commences;
5. Nathan Ake
Manchester City have always been known for constantly looking to bolster their squad despite the presence of quality players in each position. This system of recruitment has given Manchester City unparalleled squad depth and it looks like they’re set to improve that depth going into January with Guardiola reportedly keen on signing Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake.
After joining Bournemouth from Chelsea two years ago, Ake accelerated his development by becoming a mainstay in Bournemouh’s defence and thus, garnered more Premier League experience.
Ake is at a point where he can be regarded as one of the best young centre-backs in the league. Despite being currently linked with a move Chelsea, Manchester City should be confident of their ability to sign him.
