Manchester City have amassed one of the finest squads of the last two decades, yet their dominant puzzle is still yet to be completed. 

Pep Guardiola’s side came agonisingly close to recording a historic Premier League and Champions League double last season.

Were it not for Kai Havertz and the rest of Thomas Tuchel’s resurgent Chelsea side, they would have taken the Champions League title back to the Etihad Stadium for the first time in their history.

Every position at City is filled with two or three top quality, experienced players, however, they were found lacking in strikers last season.

Now it appears they are going all out to fill the void in the frontline, as The Sun report they are looking to make progress on the signings of England duo Harry Kane and Jack Grealish.

Could this be Manchester City and England’s frontline next season?

Despite having the likes of Gabriel Jesus and the club’s leading goalscorer Sergio Aguero, Guardiola preferred to deploy the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva and, sometimes, Ilkay Gundogan as a ‘false nine’ last term.

While opposition defences were left bamboozled and overwhelmed in the midfield and forward areas, the inherent limitations often found Guardiola’s side struggling to create chances, particularly against stubborn opposition like Chelsea.

While rivals Manchester United and title contenders Liverpool are looking to strengthen multiple areas within their squad, City are looking for one final piece to complete their dominant puzzle.

Guardiola appears to see a Kane and Grealish shaped hole within his squad, but they will come with a price as both stars are claimed to be valued at nine figure transfer sums by Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa respectively.
