Manchester City v Chelsea - Premier League
Pep Guardiola would be looking at a crucial summer ahead of 2018/19 season.

Manchester City is having a fantastic 2017/18 season. They sit at the helm of the Premier League table and the only team close enough to them is Manchester United, but City has a massive 16-point lead over them.

They already have a hand on the Premier League trophy and have progressed to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

Guardiola has transformed the team in his two-season spell at the club so far.

Some serious money has been invested in the squad and transformed the way football was being played at the Etihad Stadium.

However, City does not look like stopping anytime soon. They are looking towards adding more fire-power to their squad so as to mount an assault for a treble next season.

Here is a list of the players who are understood to be on the Spaniard's radar ahead of the upcoming transfer window:


#5 Jorginho

Jorginho is one of the hot prospects in Europe

Jorginho may not be a very popular name presently but the Napoli midfielder has gathered much attention this season.

He is currently regarded as the best central midfielder in Serie A and is a sublime passer of the ball. From the base of midfield, the player has scored four and provided for another four goals this season.

He possesses the ability to bypass the opposition with his pin-point balls over the top.

His precision and composure on the ball would tick the required boxes for the Spanish boss at the club and City are believed to be interested in the player.

However, a number of clubs are in the pursual of the player ahead of 2018/19 season. The Citizens would have to battle the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool for the player's signatures.
