Manchester City could be far better with Houssem Aouar in midfield

Manchester City are really starting to hit their stride after winning their second trophy of the season.

Now with the Community Shield and the Carabao Cup in the bag, Man City are striving on towards bigger and better things.

Just one point ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table, back-to-back Premier League titles are in sight and they want it badly.

Despite a stumble around Christmas and the New Year, Manchester City look a completely different side to contend with now, capable of ripping anyone to pieces.

Liverpool should be very worried about City now and certainly if they spend in the summer again.

Manchester City must be deeply interested in acquiring another top midfielder when the transfer window re-opens, something they could get by signing Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.

Aouar, (who is valued at £36 million on Transfermarkt) is adored by Pep Guardiola – who he described as ‘incredible‘ – after City and Lyon faced-off in the Champions League.

The 20-year-old dictated everything for Lyon and was a massive part in why they were able to gain four points in their two games against Manchester City.

The current concern for the English champions is how they will replace Fernandinho when he goes, seeing as the two league games they played without him they lost.

Houssem Aouar is arguably one of the next best midfielders coming through and that shows by the six goals and five assists he has provided this season.

Creativity and goal-sources have never been an issue for Manchester City but that is also what Aouar could provide at the Etihad.

At just 20-years-old, under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, Houssem Aouar could easily develop into one of the worlds best midfielders.
