New Manchester City attacker Julian Alvarez is keen to emulate compatriots Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero at the club. Alvarez talked about the Argentine duo of Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevezduring his unveiling as a Manchester City player earlier this month.

In his first interview as a Manchester City player, Alvarez said his aim is to leave a mark at the Premier League outfit just like Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero did during their respective careers with the club. Aguero and Tevez were part of the Manchester City squad that won the Premier League title for the first time at the end of the 2011/12 season. City were in danger of not winning the aforementioned Premier League title until Aguero came up with the goods in stoppage time of the last league game. He scored the winning goal in stoppage time as Manchester City came from a 2-1 deficit to beat London team Queens Park Rangers (QPR) 3-2. The result ensured that Aguero, Tevez and their teammates held off rivals Manchester United to win the title.

A lot of teams were interested in signing Alvarez on loan this summer, but City want to retain his services for the new season.City agreed a deal to sign Alvarez from River Plate at the start of the year.
