Guardiola says the city is still uncertain about signing a new striker.



Manchester City have not yet decided whether they will sign a new striker to replace Sergio Aguero, with manager Pep Guardiola saying the summer transfer window will close next week.

City signed England playmaker Jack Grellish from Austin Villa for a British record مل 100 million (13 136.49 million), but Aguero has cut off central striking options since joining Barcelona.

British media have linked Premier League champions City to Tottenham Hotspur striker Hurricane, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has said the England captain is not for sale.

With the Premier League transfer window closing on August 31, it is time for City to sign new ones.

“When we decided not to extend Sergio Aguero’s contract and people asked what we would do, I said many times that it would depend on the market,” Guardiola said. “Maybe we’ll buy, maybe not. It’s still the same situation.

“There are still 10 days left in the transfer market. We’ll see what happens and it depends on when we make a decision.

“I’m happier with the team if the squad stays the same … a tough Premier League.”

City, who beat newcomers Norwich City 5-0 last weekend, hosted Arsenal on Saturday.
