Former Manchester City midfielder Owen Hargreaves urges the club to sign Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez as a replacement for Sergio Aguero.

Former Manchester City midfielder Owen Hargreaves has urged the club to sign Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez as a replacement for Sergio Aguero.

Martinez scored twice for Inter in their 5-0 semi-final thrashing of Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League on Monday night, increasing his goal tally to 21 for the current campaign.

Argentine compatriot Aguero, who has just one year left on his contract at City, has a desire to play in his native country again before hanging up his boots and Hargreaves insists that Martinez would be a perfect replacement for City's all-time leading scorer.

"I know Manchester City are looking for a replacement for Aguero, Martinez is your guy," Hargreaves told BT Sport.

"He's got everything. He's skilful, a lethal finisher. He's got everything – [he's just] 22 years old.

"He's the type of player whether at Barcelona or Manchester City they're going to get a really special player."

Martinez has been heavily linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona this summer, with several reports stating that he remains one of the Catalan club's primary transfer targets.
