“Guaranteed goals” – Former Manchester City player drops verdict on “proven” Harry Kane alternative

Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku guarantees goals, says former Manchester City player Paul Stewart.

The Citizens, who are in the market for a new striker this summer, have been linked with the the Inter Milan striker as the club seek for replacement for the club’s all-time leading goal scorer Sergio Aguero.

The premier league champions are prioritizing signing a No.9 this summer and hold an interest in Harry Kane and Erling Haaland, though both situations are more complicated than that of Lukaku.

The Cityzens are said to consider a move for the Belgium international their most realistic chance of signing a world-class attacker this summer as they know Tottenham are unlikely to deal with them over Kane and Borussia Dortmund are asking Haaland to give them one more season.

City appear to be upping the ante in their bid to sign the Tottenham striker, with reports claiming the premier league club could offer £100million plus a player for him.

As of yet, it is unclear whether Kane will make the move to the Etihad but should they be unable to capture the England captain, they will instead target Lukaku.

Ultimately, for Stewart, Lukaku is a player who would definitely bring goals to the Etihad, though he feels Kane should remain the priority.

“Lukaku is guaranteed goals,” the ex-City star told TT via Transfer Tavern when asked if he could see his old side making a move for the Belgium international this summer.

“He’s done it in the Prem. Alright, he didn’t have the best spell at United, but United were going through a spell where it wasn’t just Lukaku, it was the club. He’s proven it now at the Euros that he’s still a more than capable striker. But I think I’d [rather] spend £100m on Harry.”

If City cannot get Kane this summer, when you look at his goal record, Lukaku would obviously be a great alternative.
