Manchester United are in a hunt for supporting striker for Rasmus Hojlund in the next transfer window. Hojlund is yet to score a goal in the Premier League for United. Consequently, the board at The Old Trafford feels the need of a second option as well. United signed Rasmus from Atalanta for £72 million in the recent summer window. Though, they are now looking to sign an experienced forward to help him.

According to the report in the Mail, there is a sense at United that Hojlund would benefit from working alongside a more experienced centre-forward. Moreover, it will share the goalscoring burden too.

“Given his young age, United are considering adding a more seasoned centre-forward to their ranks at the turn of the year. They believe the right addition would add value to Hojlund’s development.

“United recruitment staff are monitoring experienced striking talent across Europe with a view to making a January signing not only to add much needed firepower but to ease the pressure on Hojlund.

“Brentford striker Ivan Toney will be leaving in one of the next two windows. United are monitoring the England striker’s situation.

“Porto striker Mehdi Taremi, 31, was linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer. He could interest United with the Iran international’s current deal set to expire at the end of the season.

“United have also been heavily linked with Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

“There is a willingness at United to improve the squad in January following their disappointing start.”

It will be an interesting saga in the weeks to follow. Besides this, their manager Erik Ten Hag is also “on thin ice” following the poor results.
