Manchester City may be sitting 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League, but a football team can always improve and with the January transfer window shut, now would be a good time to see whom Pep Guardiola should have targeted.

Even with the arrival of Aymeric Laporte, the Premier League leaders look short in some areas of the pitch while injuries to certain players could leave them short in several positions.

Money certainly isn’t an object at Manchester City and so here are five players they should have targeted in January:

#1 David Alaba

Bayern Muenchen v SC Freiburg - Bundesliga

It’s no secret that Pep Guardiola is an admirer of David Alaba. The duo worked together during the Spaniard’s spell at Bayern Munich that dominated German football.

The Austrian international would add so much to a Manchester City squad, given his versatility which is something Guardiola looks at in a player. Under his tutelage at Bayern Munich, Alaba played predominantly at left-back, but also played in midfield and centre-back.

At 25, Alaba still has his best years ahead of him. He’s also up there among the best full-backs in football to date. A move to the Premier League would further enhance his career, while a potential reunion with Guardiola is certainly something Manchester City fans would love to see.
