Could Manchester City remain quiet in the January transfer window?

Could Manchester City remain quiet in the January transfer window? With the transfer window reopening in just under two weeks, the treble winners have been linked with a host of players. But a recent report from David Ornstein of the Athletic indicates that it may be a quiet month ahead for City.

The European champions have been linked with a host of players ahead of the January transfer window. With Kalvin Phillips appearing set to depart the club as per Samuel Meade of the Mirror in January, it would appear that Pep Guardiola’s squad could be a midfielder short.

Despite that when you dive into the Manchester City squad there appears to be depth in the ranks. With Kevin De Bruyne due to return in the next few weeks he will provide a boost for City. They will also be hoping for a better run on the injury front. At stages this season De Bruyne, Kovacic, Matheus Nunes, John Stones Jeremy Doku and Erling Haaland have all missed games due to injury. If the treble winners have a better run with injury in the second half of the season there may not be any need for any reinforcements in January.

It could be an interesting month ahead in the transfer window. Following Ornstein’s report it seems that needs will dictate City’s approach to the market. The champions tend to not get involved in the January window due to the prices involved so it could be a quiet window.

It will fascinating to see if Manchester City make a move next month while they attempt to overhaul Liverpool, Arsenal and Aston Villa at the top of the Premier League.
