Ake in frame despite Guardiola Man City denials

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has again declared he doesn't expect to buy in January.

Injuries at centre-half and the absence of Fernandinho in midfield have affected the defending champions' title defence.

But when asked if City would sign any players in the January window, Guardiola assertively repeated, "nope, nope".

However, Sky Sports says City have shown interest in a January deal for Bournemouth's Nathan Ake - despite a contract clause seemingly putting Chelsea in pole position to bring him back to Stamford Bridge.
