Inter striker Romelu Lukaku is reportedly a target for Manchester City.

The Belgian international has established himself as one of the most feared strikers in Serie A since moving to San Siro in 2019.

Lukaku has hit 51 goals in just 73 games for the Nerazzurri since his switch from Manchester United and according to the Daily Telegraph his exploits have caught the eye back in the Premier League.

The newspaper states that significant investment will be made in Pep Guardiola’s squad over the summer after the Catalan Coach signed a new contract.

With Sergio Aguero’s contract expiring at the end of the season City are in the market for a striker, and want a long-term successor even if the Argentine stays.

The Telegraph believes that Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez are on the shortlist of potential targets – as is Lukaku.

The 27-year-old has plenty of Premier League experience having spent the majority of his career in England.

Lukaku has scored over 100 league goals in spells at Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Manchester United.
