Manchester City are considering Southampton striker Danny Ings as a potential successor to Sergio Aguero. The Citizens and the Argentian have announced on Monday that Aguero will leave the club at the end of the season when his contract expires with the Premier League giants.

Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland has been dubbed to be the perfect replacement for the club’s all-time top scorer. However, according to Sky Sports, the Norwegian’s price tag could see City move for Ings instead.

Haaland is valued at around £100 million and that price could be pushed up by interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid. While 28-year-old Saints striker Ings is considered a more attainable target. Ings scored 22 Premier League goals last season, second only to Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, and has netted eight in 22 games this term.
