Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is closing on a £38 million deal for Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero.

Mancini believes the Argentinian will settle into the Premier League as soon as he completes his switch to the Etihad.

He said: "Aguero is young and can start to score a lot. He will become a top striker. He is 23 and now is his time.

"He is like Carlos Tevez and could play with Carlos, or Edin Dzeko or Mario Balotelli.

"He can play as first striker or second striker. He has good technique. After many years in a top club like Atletico Madrid he can play Premier League.

"Aguero is a good player, like Samir Nasri, like Cesc Fabregas, like Robin van Persie - there are a lot of good players in England."
