The future of Erling Haaland and Harry Kane is expected to be a constant feature this summer - either side of Euro 2020 and the storylines that brings.

Manchester City are in the market for a striker following the departure of their record goalscorer Sergio Aguero to La Liga giants Barcelona on a free transfer.

But who will Pep Guardiola target as his replacement?

Naturally, such is their goalscoring pedigree, Borussia Dortmund sensation Haaland and England captain Kane both spring to mind as having the ability to fill that void left by Aguero at the Etihad Stadium.

However, neither of those two potential targets will come cheaply, while there is bound to be competition for the sought-after signatures of both players.

Here, we take a closer look at six alternative options that Guardiola and City might target instead;

Memphis Depay (Lyon) - Although he appears to be closing in on a move to Barcelona - a free transfer which has been a long time coming has yet to be finalised. Is it too late for City or other potential suitors to pounce? Depay's previous struggles across Manchester with United are well-documented, but he is a more accomplished player now and was only out-scored by France speedster Kylian Mbappe last term.

Danny Ings (Southampton) - Perhaps not in the same class as some other players on this list, the Southampton man is well-versed in what it takes to score goals in the Premier League and it's only injuries that have prevented him from winning more England caps. That and a certain Three Lions captain. Out of contract in 2022, Ings could at the very least provide Guardiola with a quality back-up option in attacking quarters.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice during the Euro 2020 opener to move his Belgium tally to 62 goals in just 94 games.

Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan) - Surely not? The ex-Chelsea and United striker has hit the ground running at Euro 2020 with Belgium, while his overall international record now reads 62 goals in 94 games. A total of 34 direct goal involvements from 36 games in Serie A went a long way to securing a first Scudetto in 11 years for Inter Milan - but the departure of title-winning coach Antonio Conte has raised more than a few question marks.

Alexander Isak (Real Sociedad) - One of the most highly-rated young strikers in Europe, there are bound to be a fair share of suitors for the 6ft 4in frontman over the coming years. He posed reported United target Pau Torres a few problems during the Euro 2020 opener between Sweden and Spain, while 17 goals last term - aged 21 - proves that Isak is a genuine star in the making.

Gerard Moreno (Villarreal) - It takes some doing going toe-to-toe with Lionel Messi and Karim Benzema in the bright lights of La Liga, but that is exactly what Moreno did last season. Indeed, his tally of 23 goals saw him level-pegging with the Frenchman and that was bettered only by Messi. Victory over United in the Europa League final with current club Villarreal has already given him a leg up when it comes to popularity at the Etihad Stadium, too.

Andre Silva (Eintracht Frankfurt) - Robert Lewandowski and Haaland naturally take plenty of the limelight in the German Bundesliga. However, the achievements of Portugal frontman Silva must not go unnoticed. Cast aside by Italy outfit AC Milan, the 25-year-old underlined his sharp-shooting credentials with 28 goals in just 32 appearances last campaign. He'd no doubt be available at a fraction of the price of Haaland and Kane.
