Chelsea and Manchester City have both gotten themselves off to excellent starts in the Premier League this season, and both sides look well equipped to make a real challenge for the title.
For the Blues, manager Mauro Sarri has made an unbeaten start to life at the Bridge, and dealt Liverpool their first loss of the season this past week with a League Cup win at Anfield.
Man City and Pep Guardiola on the other hand have been consistently getting results on the board, and will be hopeful of even more improvements when star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne returns to the fold in the coming months.
With both clubs no doubt vying for the top spot, the January window will be an interesting time for both managers, when the temptation to dip into the transfer market and sign those one or two players who can help the squad in the tough final months can become all too appealing.
However, there is one man we at the Tavern think both the Blues and City could look to sign in Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans.
The £18m-rated midfielder is one of the most sought after young talents in Europe, and is already something of a regular for Belgium after an impressive few years with Monaco.
Tielemans has all the ability in the world really to go on and become a dominant force for years to come. Both City and Chelsea have squads which could be described as ageing, and signing one of the best young talents in the world would make a huge difference to either squad both for this season, and the coming years.
