Aguero, who needs to score just two more goals to make it into the top 20 Premier League goalscorers list, will knock Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs down in the record books.

Alan Shearer tops the list having bagged an astounding 260 goals during his time with Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United, an achievement Aguero pays respect to in an interview with City’s club website.

‘There are some great names in the Premier League top 20, but without a doubt, for his goal tally and lead over everybody else, Alan Shearer deserves to be on the podium,’ Aguero said.

‘That said, there are a number of other players I admire. I’d say it’s a matter of taste or playing style because the Premier League has hosted many of the greats – and still does: Michael Owen, Wayne Rooney and Thierry Henry to name just a few,’ the striker added.

Asked which player stands out the most in the list of prolific goalscorers, Aguero pulled out former Chelsea and Manchester City midfielder Frank Lampard.

‘But as my personal favourite, I’d like to choose Frank Lampard, who in spite of not being necessarily a striker, stands among the top 10 goal-scorers. That deserves praise,’ the Argentinian said.

‘I had the chance to play alongside him and it was a valuable experience. He’s every inch a professional and a man you can respect.’
