Man City have been urged to sign Erling Haaland.
It’s no secret that Sergio Aguero is willing to leave Manchester City by next season, leaving a big gap in the striker position. And a worthy player to fill Aguero’s shoes, according to former City player Trevor Sinclair, would be Erling Haaland.
“When you’ve got a top striker like Aguero and he’s fit and he’s playing, you’re going to score goals, but he’s missed 33 games in the last two seasons,” Sinclair told talkSPORT.
“I think Man City and the fans need to get used to seeing Aguero not playing. With that said, is Gabriel Jesus the right man for the job? For me, he’s not scoring enough goals. I like him, I think his work-rate is superb, but he doesn’t score enough goals.
“They’ve replaced other players, Torres for Sane is a good like-for-like.
“But when you look at what’s happening with the striker situation, they’ve got two strikers.
“Going off Aguero’s stats and the games he misses, I think you definitely need to buy a new striker.
“For me, I would go all out for Erling Haaland at Dortmund, he’s got everything and would suit the philosophy at Man City. He would do the business.
“If they had Haaland they’d definitely be in this title race.
“I don’t think they can compete with the squad they’ve got, with their striking options at the moment.”
