Arsenal have made first contact with Sergio Aguero following the news the Argentine will leave Manchester City at the end of the season, according to Lucas Scagliola.
The journalist is claiming that there is no further update than the Gunners establishing contact with the player’s representatives.
However a report from ESPN has claimed that whilst the veteran is aware of interest from within England for his services, he’d rather move to a club in Europe.
Should Arsenal sign Aguero?
Having signed for the club back in 2011, it was announced on Tuesday that the Citizens legend will leave the club after scoring 257 goals in 384 games for the club.
A new centre-forward is definitely a necessity for Mikel Arteta’s men this summer with the futures and form of some attacking players under questions.
According to recent reports, Alexandre Lacazette’s and Eddie Nketiah’s futures are up in the air with the north London giants open to selling either player in the summer transfer window. It says a lot about Arteta’s views on his striking options and with reported interest in Aguero, the Reds could have their replacement.
The Argentine has been sublime for the north-west club during his 10-years at the Etihad Stadium, notching up over 250 goals for the club. However, it’s the regularity of his goals that make him a suitable replacement in position the outfit have struggled to find much consistency.
Lacazette himself has endured an up and down year, scoring in patches, meanwhile, Nketiah hasn’t scored in any game since the Europa League clash against Dundalk. Aguero hasn’t endured such problems during his spell in England, averaging over 25 goals per season across his decade in the country.
At 32-years-old, the experienced forward still has plenty to offer the club despite his age. He can provide what Arsenal have dearly missed since the departure of Robin van Persie, consistent goals.
