It is no secret that Manchester City does require a quality option for the right wing position. As it stands, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva currently occupy the role for Pep Guardiola’s side. But both players play their best football in the centre of the pitch. Often, they drift centrally where they do their best work. A player such as Bakayoko could potentially come in and accommodate the permanent shift of Phil Foden to midfield.

Manchester City’s interest in Jeremy Bakayoko is a story to watch for as the summer transfer window approaches. As a player, his strengths appear well suited for life at the Etihad. If the treble winners do make a move for Johan Bakayoko, they could potentially be adding a young winger who seems perfectly suited to a role in Pep Guardiola’s squad.
