The uncertainty about players coming and going, latest squad logistic update

DATE: 28.08.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

So far it is all talk, but almost the full squad are under the rumour radar and a number of new names are also linked with a move in, here are the latest updates regarding squad logistics

In the goalkeeper area it is all quit and nothing said. Jakupovic. Hamer and Schmeichel are all good goalkeepers and there of course nothing to worry about with those three competing for a place. Jakupovic replaced Zieler earler in the summer.

Daniel Amartey and Yohan Benalouane are both fringe players and could both move out before the window close. Benalouane showed last season that he was more than capable to play against the best teams in the Premier League and Champions League.

Benalouane made a number of mistakes in pre-season games, and the arrival of Harry Maguire will probably make it difficult at City. A move looks likely. With Amartey the story is a bit different, he is one we believe would be staying. He can be alternative both at right back, in midfield and the centre of the defence.

Shakespeare looks eager to bring in a central defender, constantly linked with a number of good alternatives. Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans are the two recently being written about, with Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson also in the frame.

Anderlect defender Kara Mbodj was an early alternative, and Nice favourite Malang Sarr is also mentioned. The latest player to be linked is German international Benedict Howedes.

Wes Morgan and Robert Huth are both players with great routine, but at the moment they both struggle with minor injuries. Young defender Josh Knight made his debut against Sheffield United and showed great promise.

We believe that one defender could be signed, either Chris Smalling or Benedict Howedes looks the most likely candidates. Yohan Benalouane could be leaving with Trebzonspor and Besiktas both being linked.

The hunt for Jonny Evans also looks on, but so far City have not been lucky in their chase. With Man City in the chase as well, it will be difficult to see Evans as a Leicester City player this week.

Craig Shakespeare has a number of players to chose from in the centre of midfield. Nampalys Mendy looks as if he is leaving, but the fact that he made an appearance against Sheffield United, could see him with a future at City.

Ndidi and James have been the preferred pair, with both Danny Drinkwater and Vicente Iborra absent with injuries. You also have Andy King in the squad who is also an alternative. Today a new rumour regarding Grzegorz Krychowiak appeared.

Talk about Danny Drinkwater leaving for Chelsea is still there, and if City decides to sell, then Krychowiak might be an alternative. Ludogoretz midfielder Anicet Abel is also linked with a move.

Andros Townsend is also mentioned lately. The Crystal Palace flank midfielder is at his best England quality. How Shakespeare will shop and chop, who knows. Ahmed Musa is one of the flank midfielders who could be on the way out, with Hull the latest club to be linked with his services.

As Shakespeare experienced v. Man Utd, changing players never worked in City's favour, while Man Utd won the game because of two subs, making a treath when entering the field. That is something to address.

Up front it looks as if City have a number of alternatives. Vardy, Iheanacho and Okazaki are three, Slimani and Ulloa two others. The fact that Ulloa has signed a new contract, makes the only player on the possible departure list, Islam Slimani.

But no answers from Shakespeare, since he played Slimani against Man Utd and also got a good performance from the Algerian in the EFL Cup v. Sheffield United. Slimani scored two.

Nothing looks to happen with the flank midfielders, and all rumours are gone, regarding Mahrez and Gray. Musa could be on the way out, but he is not just a flank, he can play up front.
