Manchester City have made an imposing start under Pep Guardiola but has been marked recently with inconsistencies.
City spent big in the summer bringing in the likes of young England defender John Stones for just shy of £50 million, while top talents such as Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito and Claudio Bravo were also signed.
Guardiola won his opening 10 games in all competitions, but after being held to a draw with Celtic in the Champions League, they suffered their first Premier League defeat to Tottenham.
More recently, draws with Everton and Southampton sandwiched a 4-0 thrashing at Barcelona, raising questions over the Sky Blues’ genuine quality.
Pep is coming under criticism for some poor tactics and the belief he has to spend big to succeed.
Sergio Aguero is the star man up front being one of the best players in the world whilst Kevin De Bruyne has been one of the Premier League’s stand up players this season.
City are likely to be engrossed in a grueling title race with a number of sides including Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool so new additions in the New Year are essential.
With that in mind, here are FOUR Championship players they should sign in January.
