The best replacement for Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero

Who will replace the club’s all-time top goalscorer at the Etihad as it is now it is official that Sergio Aguero is leaving Manchester City.

since the beginning of 2020, Aguero has made only 11 starts in the league The 32-year-old has scored only one Premier League goal this season and City have known Aguero’s time was coming to an end for some while.

with a fifth looking likely ahead of Aguero’s departure, he was part of  he City win four Premier League titles in the last eight years,

chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and director of football Txiki Begiristain have already shortlisted some names as replacement in the club’s forward planning.

Here are the candidates step up and become the next leading man at the Etihad

Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland is the most realistic option to replace Sergio Aguero. in the early 2000s Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, played for City  and  Erling has been pictured in a sky blue shirt from around that time therefore the club already has a personal draw for the Norway international.

still at the tender age of 20 Haaland has 33 goals in 31 games in the Bundesliga this season this could be their man leading the line for the next decade as there are fewer hotter prospects in world football

Danny Ings

since the beginning of 2019/20, the 28-year-old, has scored 30 goals in 52 Premier League starts.

While Haaland is expected to cost in excess of £100m the City hierarchy as a more affordable alternative  and Ings has targeted a return to a Champions League club this year.

Harry Kane

The League Cup final and can they get into the top four means There’s a big few months coming up for Tottenham.

it would be virtually impossible for anyone to afford him this summer as he more than three years left on his contract but he is the best number nine in the Premier League

Romelu Lukaku

Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is admired by Guardiola and under Antonio Conte at Inter Milan has found form again.

Lukaku could follow in the footsteps of Carlos Tevez and Andy Cole in enjoying successful spells on both sides of Manchester

Lautaro Martinez

Lautaro could well be the new Sergio Aguero with a small frame hiding a burst of pace Putting the two side by side the likeness is obvious.

scoring 14 goals in 21 starts in Serie A this season under Conte at Inter Lautaro Martinez is another forward who has blossomed and there are similarities

Other are Gabriel Jesus his back up while Pep Guardiola has at times used Kevin De Bruyne as a false nine.
