Bayern Munich have identified Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero as one of next summer's transfer targets.
European champions Bayern Munich want to sign prolific City front man Sergio Aguero at the end of this season, and what is more, the Bavarians are even willing to offer fellow striker Robert Lewandowski in part exchange for the Argentinian, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
Poland hitman Lewandowski is expected to sign for Bayern in time for next season, a deal that was set up before Guardiola took charge. Guardiola is now, however, reportedly planning to use Lewandowski in the Aguero deal, should City be interested.
The Bayern boss has his sights firmly set on the Argentinian superstar and will attempt to attract him to Germany in the summer.
The 25-year-old has been in sparkling form this season, netting seven in eight Premier League appearances, as well as three in the Champions League.
According to reports, Bayern boss Pep Guardiola has been a long-term admirer of the Argentine since his days playing for Atletico Madrid and now wants him to lead his attack at Bayern.
Guardiola was keen to take him to Barcelona during his time in charge there, but did not have the finances to make it happen.
Now Guardiola has serious cash at his disposal, he’s set on making the deal happen, and, in addition to the financial attraction, the lure of chasing Champions League glory may also appeal to Aguero.
With all things considered, he may find it difficult to resist a move at the end of the season.
Guardiola is said to view Aguero as being the ideal attacker to play in his quick-passing style of football that he has brought to the Allianz Arena.
The Spaniard is desperate to have Aguero in his line-up next season because he thinks the player has the skill and mobility to feed off his talented midfield.
The Argentinian hitman has been in top form for City this season, leading the scoring charts and taking on the role as No.1 attacker.
Aguero, 25, has a contract at Eastlands that runs until June 2017 and having found the back of the net on an impressive 58 occasions in just 100 matches for the club, the player is sure to be valued at upwards of £40 million.
Guardiola and his camp, however, don’t seem deterred by the steep asking price and are already in the process of plotting the big-money raid.
