Jack Grealish has hailed new Manchester City team-mate Erling Haaland as “the best striker in the world”.

Haaland scored 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund before joining Manchester City this summer for a reported fee of £51million.

Grealish told The Mirror: “We’ve signed a top striker, probably the best striker in the world in Haaland, so I’m sure he will contribute. It will be a season to look forward to.

“I’m looking forward to playing with him. Who wouldn’t be? As a number nine, he’s definitely in the top two, top one in the world.”

Grealish created 76 chances from open play for Manchester City this season (only Kevin De Bruyne created more with 94 chances) but had just 4 assists. The arrival of Haaland will definitely help convert these chances.
