Manchester City wants to add a left-back to their squad before the window closes on October 6th.

Any move, however, hinges on whether to not they can offload Ukrainian utility man Aleksandr Zinchenko. Ajax’s Argentinian left-back Nicol√°s¬†Tagliafico has been mentioned as a possible target, as has versatile Bayern star David Alaba.

Alaba is a less realistic target as he is still a key member of Hansi Flick’s European Champions and can be deployed in various positions.

City last night completed the ¬£65m signing of Portugal centre-back Ruben Dias, which takes¬†Pep Guardiola’s expenditure on defenders beyond the ¬£400m mark¬†at Manchester City.

City’s current options at left-back are Benjamin Mendy, Zinchenko, and Jo√£o Cancelo who is naturally a right-back but is capable of filling in on both flanks.
