Manchester City, already home to speedster Kyle Walker, the reigning quickest player in the Premier League, is eyeing another potential speed sensation to enhance their roster and potentially secure the title of the fastest player in the league.
Last season, Kyle Walker set the pace, recording an impressive sprint speed of 37.31km/h, securing the title of the Premier League’s fastest player. Now, Pep Guardiola aims to further boost the team’s speed profile following the recent acquisition of Jeremy Doku.
Fresh reports from Spanish newspaper AS suggest that Pep Guardiola is eyeing Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies, with Manchester City yet to secure a consistent performer in the left-back position.
Although Josko Gvardiol has been deployed in that role this season, his natural position as a central defender has prompted speculation about City’s pursuit of a better-suited player for the position. Davies has demonstrated his capabilities in this position since the 2019/20 season, notably winning the treble with Bayern Munich.
Guardiola has a track record of deploying versatile players in different positions, often preferring midfielders like Oleksandr Zinchenko and right-backs such as Joao Cancelo in the left-back role during his tenure at City.
According to the report, Davies is yet to make a decision regarding his future, with Real Madrid also expressing interest in securing his services. Transfermarkt values the Canadian international at €70 million, indicating the potential investment required for his acquisition.
