He may be a relative unknown to many Manchester City supporters, but young central defender Unai Núñez has been a rock at the back for Athletic Bilbao so far this season.

The last time City went for a defender from the Basque club, it was an incredible success as Aymeric Laporte was brought to Manchester.



With Laporte returning later this month, another January move for a defender from his former club could be a nice partnership as City look to achieve European glory in the spring.



In such a crucial Champions League run, City will need someone to step up next to their anchor at the back and make a real impact this season, which Núñez may or may not be capable of.

It may not be the big-name solution many City fans were hoping for amid links to players such as Kalidou Koulibaly, but this move is much more like one City would make.

He may not walk directly into the first team as Laporte did, but instead need time to settle in.

With a reported £25 million release clause, the move could be an absolute bargain for City should they look to solve their defensive issues through the market this winter.
