- Julian Weigl (Borussia Dortmund):
Borussia Dortmund have been doing phenomenally well so far this season in the Bundesliga, being at the top of the league. It is astonishing how they have done so well in comparison to their rivals Bayern Munich and one of the key reasons for their good form is midfielder, Julian Weigl. Weigl has been very effective in his defensive midfield role, breaking down the attack of the opposition time and again. His reading of the game has been impressive too as the 23-year old is scouted by some of the top clubs in Europe to sign him up in the near future. Pep Guardiola is already seeking an alternative and a future replacement for Fernandinho and it seems Weigl fits the bill perfectly for the Blues. Signing him up in January is going to be a daunting task though, given the form Dortmund are in.
- Frenkie de Jong (Ajax):
Frenkie de Jong has had a very good season with Ajax so far in the Dutch league and it doesn’t come as a surprise when he is linked to some of the top clubs in the world already. Frenkie’s box-to-box abilities have been a delight to watch and surely the 21-year old midfielder is touted to achieve big things in the future. His passing and playmaking abilities are his biggest strengths and he can be a valuable asset going forward for whichever team he plays. City do not have a desperate need to sign him but given the competition they might have in the future to sign the Dutchman, it is likely that the Premier league Champions go for his signature in January itself.
- Isco (Real Madrid):
The former Malaga man hasn’t been at his best from some time now but that does not take away the qualities he possesses. Isco on his day, is a monster of a player and can easily turn a game around with his skills on the ball. With Real Madrid struggling deeply in the La liga this season, there are chances that Isco may opt to leave given the opportunity and circumstances. Isco has a buy-out clause worth €700 million but that surely wouldn’t sustain if thing going at Madrid continue. City can benefit signing someone like Isco to add more depth to their squad and hopefully strongly challenge for the UEFA Champions league. That being said, it is a long shot given Isco’s importance at Madrid.
