The Citizens, who are expected to be in the market for a new striker at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, have been linked with the 27-year-old as a potential replacement for the club’s all-time leading goal scorer Sergio Aguero.
The €90m-rated star has been in sensational form for Inter Milan since joining them in 2019. He is leading their title charge this season with his 27 goals and is in line to win the Serie A title after becoming the main man for Antonio Conte’s side.
CorSport reported last month that City had ‘probed the ground’ for the Inter Milan striker, but claims the talks of interest in the player are only rumours or at most, surveys carried out through intermediaries
The report claim that Pep Guardiola is ‘convinced’ by Lukaku, and that as yet, City have not yet given up hope of landing the former Everton and Manchester United star.
However, despite the efforts, the response from Inter was ‘determined, firm and without hesitation’ – the Italian club have made it clear to Man City they have no intention to sell.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by Man City Xtra, many Man City fans have have been expressing their thoughts and opinions.
