Speaking ahead of England's Nations League clash against Hungary, he said: "The battle for the Golden Boot is always tough, the Premier League has produced some top strikers around the world for a number of years now. 

"Every season I’ve been playing it’s always been a tough battle."

The 28-year-old added: "You expect the top strikers to want to play in the Premier League and with those two new signings it’s going to be the case.

"It helps me as a player to have good competition, it drives me to improve and get better so, for sure, I’m looking forward to the challenge."  

Haaland moves to Man City having scored a staggering 86 goals in 89 appearances across all competitions for Borussia Dortmund.  

As for Nunez, he bagged an impressive 34 goals in 41 games last season for Benfica.
