Tottenham boost? Manchester City make Erling Haaland first-choice target

Tottenham boost? Manchester City make Erling Haaland first-choice target

An insight into Manchester City’s transfer plans moving forward has been provided on Friday.

Manchester City set for quiet January?

The Athletic suggest that Manchester City are primed for a quiet winter window.

A left-back, central midfielder and striker are all mentioned as positions to be targeted.

This makes a fair bit of sense, given the fact that Man City only have Gabriel Jesus as a semi-natural centre-forward option right now, Fernandinho will leave in the summer – leaving Rodri as their only holding midfielder – and Oleksandr Zinchenko is the club’s only out-and-out left-back.

However, the Sky Blues faithful will be forced to wait until at least the summer to see those positions filled, as The Athletic add that Pep Guardiola and co. do not intend to recruit any new players in January.

Manchester City want Erling Haaland

The same report also provides an insight into Manchester City’s plans for signing a striker.

City’s pursuit of Tottenham standout Harry Kane over the summer of 2021 was well documented, albeit with Kane having ultimately ended up staying put in north London.

And now, it appears that the ship has all but sailed on a Kane to City deal.

This comes with The Athletic reporting that the Citizens’ first-choice target is Erling Haaland, with the Manchester outfit planning to hold meetings with the Norwegian’s representatives over the weeks and months ahead.

Should Man City fail to land Haaland, they are said to have other options in mind, too, such as Alexander Isak and Dusan Vlahovic.
