Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Agüero as the two recognised strikers at his disposal and the duo have struggled with fitness this season.
Jesus and Agüero have collectively scored six goals and only two of them have come in the league.
Agüero’s contract runs down at the end of this season and three days ago, the Telegraph reported the Citizens are searching for his long-term successor, even if the Argentine signs a new deal at the Etihad.
The outlet also explained Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku is viewed as a target for the Premier League side.
Journalist Fabio Santini now provides an update on City’s attempt to sign the former Manchester United man. He claims City have made a huge offer, both to Inter and the Belgium international.
Quoted by Area Napoli, the Italian journalist said: “Attention: Manchester City have presented an offer to Inter equal to eighty million euros for Romelu Lukaku. The English club has instead proposed fifteen million euros a season to the Belgian forward. Currently he earns ten with the Nerazzurri.”
Lukaku’s contract at the San Siro lasts until 2024 and Santini doesn’t mention if either the striker and/or Antonio Conte’s side are willing to do business with City.
The ex-Everton star has scored 17 goals and three assists in all competitions this season after managing 34 goals and six assists last campaign with Inter.
