According to an update by journalist Ian McGarry, via Man City Xtra, the Sky Blues have ‘stepped up’ their search for a striker and are willing to take a short term approach given Pep Guardiola’s lack of depth in that area – with news emerging they could be after an older and more experienced option.
Following this news, Man City supporters have taken to Twitter – recommending which forwards Txiki Begiristain and co should pursue to strengthen Guardiola’s options going forward.
Which striker would you rather have back at the Etihad?
Other (let us know in the comments)
Right now, Gabriel Jesus and youngster Liam Delap are City’s only fit, available and natural centre-forwards – with Sergio Aguero suffering from a plethora of injury issues recently.
One man these Citizens have largely tipped to take the mantle is ex-hero Edin Dzeko, who many Blues will fondly remember as the man who scored the equaliser against Queen’s Park Rangers on that iconic title-winning day in 2012.

Fans plead for return of Dzeko
Dzeko is the player that solidified my fandom. Seeing him come home would be great and he can still be a productive player. Absolute legend https://t.co/aGyJ2ZiqQY
