Manchester City are unsurprisingly leading the race to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham Hotspur with Sergio Aguero leaving for Barcelona, but former City defender Steve Howey believes that they could look to sign Andre Silva after his impressive season with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Recent reports have suggested that Spurs have rejected a huge £100 million offer plus players for Kane from Man City, and with the striker still desperate to leave Tottenham this summer it could be wise for Daniel Levy to sell a player who is no longer happy at the club.
Who should Man City sign?
If Man City fail to land Kane this summer, they have been linked with a move for Silva who has somewhat gone under the radar during his time in the Bundesliga as the striker managed to score 28 goals last season in the Bundesliga, which was actually more than Erling Haaland.
Man City have a massive amount of wealth as a football club which means they could spend as much as they wanted on a single player but a much more cost-effective signing would be Silva, and after impressing in the Bundesliga he could do well in the Premier League, according to Howey, who spoke exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“The Bundesliga is still a tough league without a doubt and I do feel as though he would do quite well.”
Silva is also not just a one-season wonder as he also provided the goals for Frankfurt during the 2019/20 season when he netted an impressive 12 times in 25 games and his clinical nature in front of goal has been a huge factor as to how Frankfurt are now regulars at competing for a spot in the Europa League.
Kane is without doubt one of the best strikers in the world despite his poor showing so far at the Euros so it’s expected that Man City will not settle for just one offer being rejected and it feels as though it could be a transfer saga that drags on all window.
