Former Manchester City defender Richard Dunne believes that Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland would be the best option to replace Sergio Aguero.


, 32, has recently announced that he will leave

Manchester City

at the end of the season.

A trustworthy replacement is required for a player that has scored 257 goals in 384 appearances for City.

Borussia Dortmund


Erling Haaland

has been linked with Manchester City.

Richard Dunne

believes Erling Haaland would provide "long-term value" for Manchester City and it is a move worth making.

"If you are looking for a number nine, someone who is going to get you goals and is going to be long-term value for money, I think Haaland is the one,"

Dunne said to Stats Perform News


"He is still very young, he is obviously proven in his first club [Salzburg], and he has moved on to Dortmund.

"He has been amazing and has scored goals in the Champions League. He looks like a good bet in terms of who is going to be able to do it long term. 

"He's 21 this year, he's got plenty of years ahead of him. For me he seems the most exciting [potential Aguero replacement].

"It would be great to see him in the Premier League. You can see him fitting into that Man City team where his job is basically stand in the middle of the box and score goals. 

"City create so many chances and hopefully he'll be able to get the opportunity to score a handful."
