Ex-City man claims ‘top striker’ is signing amid Kane links

Ex-Manchester City forward Lukas Nmecha has suggested that his former club are “getting another top striker” this summer.

Nmecha came through the ranks with Man City. He has only played three games for them at senior level and all of these outings came during the 2017/18 season.

The forward has had loan spells at Preston, Wolfsburg and Middlesbrough between 2018 and 2020.



Nmecha shone for Anderlecht last season as he bagged 21 goals across all competitions. He has now rejoined Wolfsburg on a permanent deal until the end of the 2024/25 term.

have been heavily linked with of late. He has told Spurs that he wants to leave this summer and

Nmecha has told that his exit is down to City bringing someone else in:

“I still had one year of contract. They’re getting another top striker.

“I don’t think my chances would have been very good there.”

“As we edge closer to the 2021-22 edition of the Premier League, I strongly believe this could be one of the tightest ones in recent memory.

“Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea can all win the title – that’s a four-way battle for the Premier League crown and I don’t expect any of them to run away with it by a margin of double-digit points.

“In my opinion, Chelsea need a forward. I don’t know what the deal is with Erling Haaland, but they need someone who can score 20 Premier League goals a season.

“Timo Werner is a different kind of player – he’s a willing runner who works hard for the team and is very unselfish.

“However, he doesn’t strike me as someone who can score 20 goals a season, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.

“Manchester United have already signed Jadon Sancho, but they could do with another midfielder.

“Regardless of what happens in the transfer market, as I said before, I expect a really close Premier League title race.

“Another important thing to keep an eye on is when the big players return to their respective sides after their international commitments.

“Many Premier League stars represented their countries at Euro 2020 and Copa America this summer, so they could well miss a few games at the start of the new season.”

Lingard ‘will want to leave’ Man Utd amid West Ham links, pundit claims

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard “will want to leave” the club this summer amid his links to West Ham, Gabriel Agbonlahor has suggested.

After falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford, Lingard joined West Ham on loan for the second half of last season.

The Englishman shone for the Hammers as he grabbed nine goals and four assists from his 16 outings in the Premier League.



Lingard is rated at around £30m by Man Utd and

For now, at least,

Agbonlahor has spoken about Lingard with . He believes that the England international will be keen to leave the Red Devils:

“Things can change. The transfer window closes in September and there are a few games before then to play in the Premier League.

“If Lingard doesn’t get the starting time he wants then he might decide he wants to leave in the last week of the window because he might not get in in front of [Paul] Pogba, Fred and [Bruno] Fernandes. Then you’ve got , [Mason] Greenwood and [Jadon] Sancho further forward.

“Lingard might think ‘I’m happy the manager wants me in his plans but my plans don’t want to be sitting on the bench.’ He was so close to going to the Euros so he’ll want to go to a club that gives him the best chance of going to the World Cup.

“I still think Lingard will want to leave. I just don’t see him getting a starting place in that midfield.”

“Last season he spoke with the club, with us about his needs and what he spoke about was the option of having a position on the pitch where he feels more important,” he said.

“And I consider that Saul became Saul by playing everywhere, but he or many of those around him see it as something negative.

“He is very important for Atletico because he can play as a full-back, right-wing, midfielder. He gives us a lot of options to be able to count on him. He is a player who, in that version and playing how the coach needs him to, performs very well.”
