Manchester City will not look to replace Ferran Torres in January but will instead renew their efforts to sign a striker in the summer.

The Citizens are on course to retain their Premier League title with Pep Guardiola's side currently cruising at the top of the table.

And ESPN claim that the league leaders will not be spending big in the upcoming window as they focus their attention on the summer.

Harry Kane, Erling Haaland and Dusan Vlahovic are all on City's shortlist, with the Etihad club expected to go in for at least one of the elite strikers.

Kane, 28, made his desire to leave Tottenham clear in the summer but chairman Daniel Levy refused to sanction the England captain's exit.

Guardiola could dive back into the market in a second attempt to lure the Spurs man away from North London for a reduced fee.

Fiorentina talisman Vlahovic sees his contract with the Italian club expire in the summer and the 21-year-old is looking for the next step in his career.

Borussia Dortmund are reluctant to let Haaland leave the club but a clause in his contract will allow interested parties to sign the forward for around £63million in the summer.
