Revealed: Manchester City’s next transfer priority

Manchester City had an active summer transfer window that saw three senior players arrive.

Erling Haaland joined from Borussia Dortmund, Kalvin Phillips from Leeds United and Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht.

On the outings front, meanwhile, Raheem Sterling was sold to Chelsea, whilst both Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko were shipped off to Arsenal.

But whilst Man City have one of the best squads in the Premier League, an argument could be made that they still need to invest.

An area that could prove a problem for Man City this season is full-back.

Sergio Gomez was brought in to provide cover at left-back, but the Sky Blues still only have three senior full-backs to cover two positions.

And as Kyle Walker is now getting on and becoming more of an injury concern, City may have some issues at right-back going forward. So, signing a full-back in the near future would make sense on City’s part.

However, it is not at full-back were Man City are reportedly looking to strengthen. According to the Daily Mail, it is expected that central midfield will be the Citizens’ next priority area.

As per the Daily Mail: “The wage bill has gone up as a result, with City sources not ruling out significant investment in the next priority area, which is expected to be in central midfield. It is not a leap to suggest they may pay attention to Jude Bellingham’s performance for Dortmund on Wednesday.”

Though signing a full-back does seem important, landing a midfielder sooner rather than later is also wise, given that Ilkay Gundogan is in the final year of his contract and Bernardo Silva’s future looks to be away from the Etihad.
