While much has been talked about Manchester City tightening up at the back this summer under new boss Pep Guardiola, it is easy to forget that the Sky Blue’s are already thoroughly in the process of improving their firing line too.
City were the League’s top scorers last campaign – having notched 71 times in 38 games – however the total was still disappointing considering the club having surpassed that title in both of the previous tow seasons – scoring 83 in 2014/15, and eclipsing the century mark with 102 goals during the title winning 2013/14 campaign.
With their title rivals having already began to bolster their attacking options this summer, it has become more vital than ever that City do the same if they wish to push for the Premier League title once again next season.
Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan have joined United, Batshuayi has joined Chelsea and Ahmed Musa has joined Leicester – and there is still more business to do: their rivals mean business.
The signing of Spanish attacking midfielder Nolito was a signal of intent for things to come this summer at City, and fans will be excited at the prospect of the former Celta Vigo man at the Etihad with the star having had an impressive last campaign and Euro 2016 with Spain.
But who else will join him? Could Guardiola’s front 4 look as dangerous as this next season? Our fans at the Transfer Tavern certainly hope so…..
