Writing for The Telegraph in his transfer notebook, journalist Mike McGrath has touted Tottenham Hotspur as a possible destination for Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero – saying the Argentine ‘would consider’ a move to north London.
Aguero, who is arguably one of the best Premier League strikers in history, is set to leave City this summer in an emotional farewell after enjoying a phenomenal 10-year stay at Eastlands.
Tottenham touted as possible move
The club are set to commission a statue in his honour, coming after the Argentine cemented his place as City’s all time top goal scorer whilst playing a key role in their hunt for silverware over this last decade.
He also scored the legendary ’93:20′ last minute goal against Queen’s Park Rangers to clinch a first ever Premier League title for the Blues in 2012.
Now, providing an update on his future, McGrath has touted Spurs as a possible move for the 32-year-old star and explained that the Lilywhites are destination he would consider.
This is despite the fact Jose Mourinho’s men are far from guaranteed a place in Europe next season, and it’s the same with Chelsea, who Aguero would also ponder moving to.
The striker, with his deal set to expire, can talk to other clubs freely and arrange a pre-contract – with his representatives still ‘gauging’ the summer market.
Transfer Tavern take
Despite not featuring much this season due to injuries and the competitiveness of Pep Guardiola’s squad, the City boss recently lauded him as an ‘extraordinary’ person given all of his exploits in England (ESPN Brazil via Sports Illustrated).
The fourth highest Premier League goal scorer in history, he has marked himself out as a world class striker time and time again, but it is debatable whether Daniel Levy and co will want to sign him on a free.
On a reported £230,000-per-week amid the coronavirus pandemic, Levy and Spurs may not want that drain on their wage bill when they already have Harry Kane – regardless of Aguero’s pedigree.
