It seems somewhat odd that Manchester City, the world's richest football club, are the only side in the Premier League's top six yet to make a significant signing in the summer transfer window.
But, then again, they are the Premier League champions, which perhaps makes their need for improvement less imperative than those of the teams below them.
In spite of that, City are likely to make at least one big signing before the window closes at the end of August. One particular striker who shall, for now, remain nameless is top of that list of candidates.
Here is how City's starting XI could look when they line up against Southampton on August 19, taking into account any potential star signings.
