Manchester City are focusing their attention and plans on the summer transfer window, following a quiet winter market, and already have some elements of their plans identified with over six months until the window re-opens.

Other than the repetitive stories linking Eric Garcia with a move to Barcelona, or lack of a move it now seems, the winter window has been extremely quiet for City supporters.

There have been tenuous links to some names such as Erling Haaland and David Alaba, while some reliable sources went as far as to identify a specific budget that City could have available for the summer market - but again, nothing in the way of concrete suggestions about specific names.

However, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the focus appears to be very much on the attacking side of things. Speaking on the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast, Romano reported that Manchester City will, "for sure", bring in 'something new' in the attacking side of their squad. In fact, the club will also form a strategy for strikers, while they plan for the summer window.

This does of course raise doubts over the future of Sergio Aguero, despite some reliable reports in the last few weeks suggesting that the Argentine could stay even if a new name is brought in within his position. Fabrizio Romano has reported that Manchester City will decide about Sergio Aguero in the 'coming weeks'.

When it comes to the targeted profiles of the players Manchester City could make moves for in the summer window, it is claimed by Romano that the Etihad club are planning with 'interesting' and 'young' players at the forefront of their early blueprints.

It's almost certainly set to be an exciting window for fans and those within the club, and despite the recent success on the pitch, Pep Guardiola will almost certainly be looking to rebuild the large majority of his squad over the summer period.
