Ian Wright and Roy Keane have hyped up the prospect of Erling Haaland playing in the Premier League this season for Man City.

The two Premier League legends have warned the rest of the Premier League sides to be wary of Haaland, who’s not yet at the peak of his career.

“You look at his record, we’ve been watching him in the Bundesliga and he’s scoring a goal a game almost,” Wright said on ITV’s coverage of the Community Shield.

“He looks so dynamic, 6ft 5ins, pace, skill, he’s got everything. He’s come to one of the best clubs in the world who needed a striker of that calibre, we’re not saying City have been struggling to win the league but with this guy in it and this calibre of player coming to the Premier League it’s exactly what you need.”

Keane then added: “Brilliant, brilliant player. Good age, 22, he hasn’t peaked yet, he’s working with a brilliant team, brilliant manager, he’s got all the attributes, you can’t imagine him not scoring 20 goals, you just can’t.

“If he stays fit, he’s obviously got the right attitude what a signing, you used a word there… exciting, that’s exactly what this young kid is and I’m excited to watch him over the next few months.”
