Manchester City must buy a ‘true centre forward’ if they are to retain their Premier League championship, according to Graeme Souness, who claims they ‘got away’ with not having one last season.
City were defeated 1-0 by Tottenham in their title defense opener, with long-term transfer target Harry Kane missing from the Spurs lineup as Son Heung-min scored the game’s only goal. The Skye Blues are interested in signing the £150 million striker, and Kane is eager to join Pep Guardiola’s team. Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, on the other hand, has been certain that the England captain will not be allowed to leave.
Following his £100 million record transfer from Aston Villa, Jack Grealish made his debut, but he was unable to inspire his new side to victory, and Souness feels City will have to go back to the transfer market.
‘I come back to it, City had 66 per cent of the ball, but I never felt like Spurs were hanging on,’ Souness told Sky Sports.
