Here’s a lowdown of what could happen in the last hours of the window. Brendan Rodgers wanted five new faces in town this summer, but it seems it will end with the three it currently has.
On Sunday night, Rodgers said a new firm was “very unlikely” that points to the “availability and affordability” of players on their roster.
For though Rodgers wants five, which is not a case in which the city will bring players who are not sure about just to reach the magic number. The manager totally not been ruled arrivals, so if the city were to make a purchase to final surprise, which would strengthen the position?
Rodgers has already ruled out signing a defensive midfielder to face injury Wilfred Ndidi, and at the same time a front may have been among the quintet that the director wanted, he said City does not have the resources for a frontman.
The club have already brought a fullback, a center and an end, leaving a visionary midfielder to complement James Maddison, Youri Tielemans, and Dennis Praet, as the place is only feasible to strengthen.
When asked if he wanted to reveal the other two positions I was looking to improve the team, last Friday, Rodgers said: “Not really. I am very happy with what we have. We have strengthened in key positions.
“It’s more market players we would like to, can be difficult for us. I will not bring players so I can have five signings. If we have three, but the really top three, I’m happy with that.
“Then we have to look to the market again in January, or the end of the season maybe.”
