Manchester City have been a huge disappointment in recent times as they continue to crumble under the pressure in the race for the Premier League title.
The Citizens desperately need to seek improvements if they are to stand any chance of defending their title in the current campaign, with Liverpool steaming ahead in the race.
Although, with the January transfer window looming, it provides Pep Guardiola with the perfect opportunity to bring in a number of fresh faces.
Interestingly, one area that the Citizens need to strengthen in is in the middle of midfield.
Fernandinho is coming towards the end of his career at the Etihad as he continues to age, with a direct replacement being required earlier than was expected due to City’s recent collapse.
Manchester City have been setting their sights on securing Tanguy Ndombele, who has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs. Although, his current club Lyon are demanding a large fee for his services, so they should turn their attention elsewhere.
Therefore, Guardiola should go all out to sign Napoli’s Allan, who has been linked with a move to Manchester City in recent times.
The Brazilian has established himself as one of the best midfielders in world football, and was one of the standout performers against Liverpool in the Champions League recently.
Indeed, with the Citizens struggling to keep things tight in the middle of midfield and in defensive areas in recent times, it’s vital that they bring in a world-class player at the heart of the midfield as this could help put them back in pole position in the race for the title by getting rid of any underlying issues.
Nevertheless, Sheikh Mansour simply has to go all out to sign the defensive midfielder in the January transfer window as he could take Man City’s midfield to the next level, with his pace, ability to intercept and eagle eye for a pass putting him up there with the world’s best.
