MANCHESTER CITY are reportedly interested in signing Romelu Lukaku and Danny Ings as they search for a recognised striker to lead the line.
Pep Guardiola's side have been without Sergio Aguero for much of the 2020-21 campaign, while replacement Gabriel Jesus has netted just seven times in 19 games.
And according to The Athletic, Lukaku and Ings are seen as the best possible options to lead the line for the Premier League leaders.
Lukaku has been sensational for Inter Milan since joining from Manchester United for £74million, netting 54 times in 78 games for the Serie A giants.
Meanwhile, Ings has also impressed for Southampton over the past 18 months, scoring 25 goals last season and already adding another seven in this campaign.
The call for a new striker at the Etihad comes with Aguero attracting interest from Barcelona, who could be looking to sign him in amove by the Catalan presidency to keep Lionel Messi at the club.
Messi and Aguero are international team-mates for Argentina and the Man City forward could be used to keep the six-time Ballon d'Or winner at the Nou Camp.
Aguero is out of contract in the summer, which means he can talk to European clubs about a free transfer.

And that has alerted Barca, who are keen to bring the ex-Atletico Madrid forward back to Spain.
Aguero is still waiting for a new deal offer from City, where he has been for nine years.
Man City have not struggled without an obvious No9 in recent weeks as they moved five points clear at the top of the table with a superb 4-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday.
