Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has been named as the best foreign player in Premier League history.

While that might be hugely controversial because of how well the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry and Luis Suarez have performed over the years, there is no doubt that Aguero should be in the running at the very least.

In terms of statistics, no foreign player has managed to score as many Premier League goals as Aguero and he’s also Manchester city’s all-time record goal scorer.

According to talksport pundits, the Argentine is the best foreign player to ever play in the Premier League and he is the most instinctive goal scorer in the country right now.

Aguero’s season has been plagued with injuries this year and the other time could be on his way out of Manchester City in the summer.

He has been linked with the likes of Barcelona in recent months and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

The Sun journalist Neil Custis said: “If I was a manager of a football team and I had Aguero, I’d play him on one leg never mind when he’s nearly fit. He’s the best foreign player ever to play in the Premier League. He’s the most instinctive goalscorer that plays in this country and offers so much to Man City now.”

Former City winger Trevor Sinclair said: “I think 256 goals in 382 games, four titles, FA Cup, four League Cups, the most iconic moment, 93:20, in Premier League history. Sergio Aguero.”

Ray Parlour added: “Do you know who I used to love, Bergkamp. I’d go Cantona, his impact was unbelievable. When he put his collar up, some of the goals and antics he got up to.

“I think Drogba made a massive impact. Zola as well. It’s really difficult to pick. I loved Dennis Bergkamp, he’d usually be in my top three but it’s being too biased then.

“Henry for his goals, people will probably put him as number one. Then Cantona for his impact. Aguero would get in my top three.”
