Potential signings

Harry Kane - It comes as no surprise to anyone to see Kane's name in this list. 

The Tottenham Hotspur and England marksman has been heavily linked with the club, with Pep Guardiola having an appreciation for the striker.

Spurs boss, Nuno Espirito Santo, has made it very clear that he, nor the club, having any intention on selling their superstar.

"Kane is a Tottenham player, our player, period. There's nothing to add," said the former Wolves manager.

However, speculation continues to revolve around both clubs and the player. Could the Spurs man be the replacement for Sergio Agüero that Manchester City are looking for?

Jack Grealish - Grealish could be a slightly harder target to tear away from his beloved club.

The winger has risen through the ranks at Aston Villa since the age of six and has now been the captain since 2019.

Grealish was the main factor in Villa's promotion from the Championship, their survival in the 2019/20 Premier League season and their 11th-placed finish in the most recent campaign.

It is believed that the price tag on the Villa man is at around £100million, with a transfer market value of £65million.

Could City afford this? Along with Kane, too?

Danny Ings - The Southampton striker had the season of his life in the 2020/21 campaign, racking up 12 goals and four assists in 29 Premier League appearances.

Ings missed several games through injury - the perfect replacement for an Agüero-like forward.

Another factor increasing the likelihood for the Saints striker moving clubs is that he has entered the last year of his contract and has refused another one, despite the new contract likely making him the highest paid player at the club.

At a low market value of £20million, Ings could be a steal, especially with likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden supplying the support (and assists).

Potential departures

Raheem Sterling - According to sources, Sterling is believed to be wanted by Spanish giants, Real Madrid. 

This is not the first time the City winger has been linked with Madrid. However, the interest had died down at the start of the transfer window.

That was, until, Sterling's performance on one of the world's biggest stages - Euro 2020.

The winger scored three goals and set up another, leading England to the final of the tournament.

This inevitably sparked interest in Sterling again and sees the Englishman on this list.

In addition to this, Sterling has expressed his desire to one day play abroad.

Gabriel Jesus - Jesus always had the weight of the world on his shoulders, as soon as talked turned to him having to replace a club legend.

The Brazilian forward has made 195 appearances in blue since signing in 2017, recording 82 goals and 34 assists in that time - not bad stats by any stretch.

However, recently, Jesus has been shunned to the bench, with Guardiola favouring the false-nine formation, with Bernardo Silva, Ferran Torres, Sterling, or Foden filling in that spot.

These could be the reasons why Juventus are interested. And how could anyone turn down the offer of playing with Cristiano Ronaldo and being managed by Andrea Pirlo?

Jesus has always split the opinion of Citizens all around the globe, so could the striker want to move away to prove his haters wrong?

Or will he stay and fight for his place?

Yangel Herrera - The Venezuelan international has attracted interest from Leeds United and West Ham United, scoring on eight occasions in all competitions for Granada CF from the middle of the park.

The midfielder arrived at the Etihad in 2017 but has not made an appearance since, being loaned out almost instantly to New York City.

The price tag is estimated to be around £20million, so City could finally see Herrera leave the club, but not out on loan this time.
