Manchester United is reportedly stepping up their pursuit of young striker Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta, as fears grow that they will not be able to sign Harry Kane this summer.
According to reports from The Mirror, United is one of the teams keen to bring the 20-year-old Danish forward to their club during the upcoming transfer window, with Hojlund valued at £40m.
Hojlund has been in impressive form this season, scoring 16 goals and assisting seven across 42 matches. With United on the lookout for a striker, Hojlund could be a good option for coach Erik ten Hag to work with, especially with the possibility of missing out on their number one target, Harry Kane.
Man United fears that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will be stubborn over Kane and have already started looking for alternatives.
In addition to Hojlund, United has also been linked with Randal Kolo Muani from Eintracht Frankfurt. Talks have already been held between the two clubs about the 24-year-old Frenchman, who has had an impressive season and would be a valuable addition to United’s squad.
With the transfer window approaching, it remains to be seen which of these targets United will be able to secure, but their pursuit of Hojlund and Kolo Muani suggests that they are looking for young, talented strikers to bolster their squad.
