Man City have ‘genuine interest’ in Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku for summer transfer with Pep Guardiola eyeing former Manchester United ace as a replacement for Sergio Aguero

Manchester City reportedly have ‘genuine interest’ in signing Inter forward Romelu Lukaku this summer.

City were linked with a move for the Inter striker in January, with reports suggesting Pep Guardiola is looking for a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero.

However, the move was ruled out by Guardiola, who said his his current squad have enough quality to be a success for the remainder of the season

Nevertheless, the Athletic report that City are considering a serious pursuit of the 27-year-old, who has scored 54 goals in 78 appearances since his £71million move from Manchester United in 2019.

It is understood Aguero, who is City’s all-time record goalscorer, will not be offered a new contract this summer and will therefore become a free agent after a successful decade in Manchester.

The Argentine marksman has had a season to forget this term, having appeared in just five Premier League matches due to a string of injury setbacks.

Lukaku, meanwhile, has been in electric form and scored 20 times across all competitions for Antonio Conte’s men to help them keep within touching distance of fierce rivals Milan at the Serie A summit.

City have also been linked with Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland, who is valued at around £100m by the Bundesliga club.

Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested in the Norway international, but reports suggest City could offer him a bumper £400,000-a-week deal to fend off their Premier League rivals.
