The Citizens are busy planning for life without Sergio Aguero, whose contract is set to expire in June 2021.
Aguero has scored 255 goals and provided 73 assists in 373 appearances for the club since arriving from Atletico Madrid for £35m in 2011.
But with injuries mounting up, uncertainty over his contract and Gabriel Jesus struggling to convince – City are studying their transfer options.
And either Haaland or Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez are on the very short shortlist.
Haaland, 20, has continued his astronomical rise to prominence in the Bundesliga having bagged 27 goals in 29 competitive opting for the club.
The Norwegian forward has proven he's capable of mixing at the very highest level since his move from Red Bull Salzburg.
Bookmakers Paddy Power think City is his next destination, but the competition is fierce with three other European heavyweights looking to muscle in.

Real Madrid are next in the market at 4/1 and they are followed by Premier League duo Manchester United (5/1) and Liverpool (7/1).
A spokesperson at Paddy Power said: "Erling Haaland is being linked with the Premier League again, and though Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are all in the running – we think the former will secure his signature.
"Though no doubt we’ll be seeing plenty of social media chat about United signing him, just like we did about Jadon Sancho, Wesley Sneijder, and, erm, Haaland a couple of years back, actually."
