Aguero linked with Arsenal switch
Former France international Gael Clichy says his former Manchester City team-mate Sergio Aguero would be a ‘good fit’ at Arsenal when he departs the Etihad in the summer.
Aguero is set to become a free agent at the end of the season when his contract expires, bringing an end to ten trophy-laden years with City.
The 32-year-old sits fourth on the list of the Premier League’s all-time top scorers, with only Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney and Andy Cole banging in more goals than the Argentine.
And Clichy – who joined City in 2011 – is of the opinion that the Argentina international could stay in England amid reported interests from Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
He told Stadium Astro: “I could see him staying in the Premier League, because he will want to climb to third or second [in the all-time top goalscorers charts].
“He can get there, for sure.Does he want that? Ten years with Manchester City is enough, I think he will move where he can enjoy it a bit more.
“Can he see himself at another English club? That’s the question. He loves the sun.
“I would like to see him stay [in England] to get to second or third in goals, but I think he will move away from the Premier League.
“I think Arsenal is a good fit, in terms of style of play. They play nice football and they create opportunities, but I really doubt he would go there.
“I’m pretty sure he will go to Spain.”
