Manchester City are in the best of forms in the Premier League and are highly rated by a number of experts to do much better than what they did in the last term. They are currently on the top of the league table and are intending to stay there until the end of the season.

The Citizens had a rather disappointing season in the last term as per their standards. However, they invested well in the transfer market and revamped their side with a number of veteran players shown the door last summer. They are looking to make some more signings in the next transfer window as well, which commences in January.

Among a number of players whom they have their eyes on, the Citizens are looking to sign one of the most efficient players in the left back position in the form of Faouzi Ghoulam. The Algerian international is presently playing for the Italian club Napoli and has come up as one of their mainstays in the backline.

The 26-year-old has the ability to play a very important role in initiating the attack as well and feed his teammates with quality passes and crosses. He is also known for his brilliant runs down the left flank, bamboozling the opposition defence with his skills and is also consistent in attacking third.

He can also be very dangerous while vying for the ball in the air and help his side by snatching the ball away with well-timed tackles.

Manchester City broke the bank last summer to get a number of players into the side including the French left-back Benjamin Mendy. However, the defender has been ruled out with a serious injury and there is a chance that he might have to miss the rest of the season, which has made it a major problem for the Premier League side and they are now looking to add another number to their backline.

With the Citizens leading the points table, they will look not to throw away the advantage they currently have and will definitely try and bring in someone like Faouzi Ghoulam to the side so as to strengthen the backline, which is going to be crucial for them if they are to have a chance to win the Premier League this season.

The fact that the Algerian international has denied to penning a new contract with Napoli might also be a boost for Manchester City. But can Guardiola lure Ghoulam to Etihad?
