Former Everton striker Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that Romelu Lukaku isn’t consistent enough to be Sergio Aguero’s replacement at Manchester City.
With the Argentinian recently announcing that he’ll be leaving City at the end of the season, a host of top forwards have since been linked with a move to the Etihad.
Since leaving United for £74m following his failed stint at Old Trafford, Belgium’s all-time top goalscorer has scored 61 goals across two seasons and is on the verge of firing Inter Milan to their first Serie A title for a decade.
But despite his goalscoring exploits in the Italian capital, Bent told Football FanCast that he doesn’t think that Lukaku is trustworthy enough to fill Aguero’s boots:
“You can’t replace him [Aguero]. He’s a goalscorer through and through, his record is up there with the best.
“Lukaku had his stint at Manchester United, he’s inconsistent for me, although he’s a seasoned-pro and does score goals, he seems to go on runs and then he’s out of form and might score one or two.
“He can be quite lazy at times, I can’t see them bringing in a straight ace for an ace because you can’t replace him.”
