Darren Bent has suggested that there are five Premier League strikers from down the years that are better than Sergio Aguero.
Aguero joined Manchester City in 2011 for a fee of around £35m from Atletico Madrid. He immediately hit the ground running in England as he scored 30 times from his 48 outings for them in 2011/12.
The forward scored a 94th minute winner against QPR on the final day of the season to clinch the Premier League title.

Barring this season, Aguero has scored at least 17 goals in all competitions in every single campaign he has had for Manchester City. He has also scored 30-plus goals a season on five separate occasions for City.
This form has made him their new record scorer as he has 257 goals from 384 games for the Cityzens.
Aguero has helped City win the Premier League four times. With the striker, they have been dominant in the League Cup as they have won that on five occasions. He has also won the FA Cup once.
The club announced on Monday evening that Aguero will leave at the end of the season when his contract expires.
Bent told talkSPORT that Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba and Ian Wright are all better than Aguero:
“For me Thierry is the best. I don’t think, personally, Aguero is in the same bracket in terms of all-round play.
“I think there’s a lot that Thierry could do that Aguero can’t, but there’s a limit to what Aguero can do that Thierry couldn’t.
“You’d have to say Shearer. 260 goals is incredible. I think Rooney is up there. For being the actual best, there’s so many different arguments.
“If you ask me who my personal favourite five are, it would be Thierry Henry, Didier Drogba, Wayne Rooney, Ian Wright, Alan Shearer.
“Aguero wouldn’t make my personal top five. He’s absolutely outstanding but there’s been so many greats.
“Someone who doesn’t even get a mention is Andy Cole – he scored one penalty and has got 187 Premier League goals. That’s frightening in itself.”
