Man City moving for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez

Manchester City are moving for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

The Sun says Pep Guardiola is desperate to sign a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane has been his first choice.

But City know it would be impossible to land the Spurs and England striker this year so they are now focusing on Martinez, 22, who featured in the Europa League final defeat Inter against Sevilla.

Martinez has scored 20 times this season.

Barcelona have also been keen on bringing the hotshot to the Nou Camp.

But they admitted defeat in their pursuit of the ace earlier this week.
