Fans of Manchester City have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays reports concerning the latest in City’s interest in Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

According to WhoScored, who is City's top Premier League goalscorer so far this season?

In reaction to the reports, which were relayed by Man City Xtra on Twitter, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the matter, with many calling for City do to all they can to sign the striker, while others have stated their belief that Martinez would have to fight it out with current City striker Gabriel Jesus for a place in the side.

What do we think?

Martinez has been in remarkable form for Inter this season, helping the Nerazzurri reach third place in the Serie A table, nine points behind leaders Juventus.

The £72million-rated Argentine has scored 11 goals in 22 league appearances, in addition to a further five goals in six Champions League fixtures.

As such, Martinez has proven that he can score at the highest level of the game, and all while part of a side that do not have a comparable level of quality in comparison to City.
