Leeds United have now joined Chelsea and Tottenham from the Premier League in the race to secure the services of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero from next season, according to the latest emerging information.

The 32 year-old striker was recently confirmed to be leaving the Etihad Stadium upon the expiry of his current contract in June, with a number of high-profile clubs across Europe named as potential candidates for the Argentine's signature.

The latest name to chase the legendary forward is Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds United - who join Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, and Inter, as well as Premier League duo Chelsea and Tottenham in attempting to win over the player.

According to an exclusive report from 90Min, the pending departure of current forward Rodrigo will leave Argentine coach Bielsa in need of another attacking reinforcement - and Sergio Aguero has been 'pinpointed' as a summer transfer target.

The report claims that Marcelo Bielsa is a known fan of his compatriot, and it's hoped that the prospect of moving to a club where he "wouldn't be required to relocate" from his current home in the Greater Manchester region could prove an "attractive option". 

90Min also report that Leeds hope their 'plans for development' and the 'passion of the fanbase' could play a huge part in Sergio Aguero's decision this summer.

Manchester City's current number ten is certainly not short of options this summer, and a recent report from the English media suggested that he would be willing to give up Champions League football if he received the right offer from an English club - such is his desire to progress up the all-time goalscoring charts.

Speaking recently on the pending departure of Sergio Aguero, coach Pep Guardiola said, "Everyone knows he's a Manchester City legend - what he's done is remarkable and it was a hard decision. For now, Sergio is focused on winning matches, but I promise all of you we'll say goodbye in a special way. He deserves nothing less."
