With the English Premier League title already in the bag and a Champions League final ahead to be prepared for, Manchester City are already making plans for next season. The Etihad club will lose a veteran top striker in Sergio Agüero and there's every need for them to sign a proven replacement that can lead their attacking line for the next couple of years.
The Cityzens announced last month that the Argentine striker will not be renewing his contract and will be leaving the club as a free agent at the end of the season and since then, they have continued to be linked with a couple of strikers from top clubs across Europe. The first name appearing on the list is Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland even though the German club announced that the 20-year-old striker will not be leaving the club this summer.
Second on the list is Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez. Just like Haaland, the Argentine striker has been deemed unsellable by the Italian Serie A giants and they have even begun discussions with him over a contract renewal as they do not wish to see him leave the club anytime soon. Although he almost left Inter and tried to move to Barcelona last summer, he says all that is in the past now and he's more focused on Inter than ever.
Also, City have Tottenham striker Harry Kane on their list and they see him as one of the most feasible and most likely options because he already has Premier League experience for some seasons. The 28-year-old is also a reported target for Manchester United but after the Red Devils finally convinced Edinson Cavani to extend his contract, it now looks less likely for the Englishman to move to Old Trafford, leaving City as his only likely destination.
