It is an open secret that Manchester United and Erik ten Hag are in desperate need of a reliable goalscorer to come in and become the mainstay in the center of attack.
Ten Hag is currently limited to Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, and the unreliable Anthony Martial, who has struggled with recurring injuries all season.
Regarding Ronaldo, it has been said that Ten Hag is willing to let the striker go if a suitable offer comes along.
According to The Telegraph’s Mike McGrath, United are looking for a leader in the next two transfer windows to replace Ronaldo, who is more than guaranteed to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires.
According to McGrath, Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic and RB Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko feature high on the list of 20-time English champions.
The Telegraph reports: “19-year-old Sesko has been on the club’s radar since breaking into his Austrian club’s first team last season and reaching double figures of goals in his first full campaign. Sesko is seen as a player with great potential and is following the same path as Erling Haaland.”
“They [United] They also closely follow the situation of Dusan Vlahovic, or more precisely, the fall of Juventus in Serie A and whether the Italians can lose their key players without Champions League football.
McGrath adds that Vlahovic has been linked to a number of other Premier League clubs before completing his move to Turin, including Antonio Conte’s Tottenham.
Beyond United’s striker search, the Red Devils are also urgently seeking the signing of a right-back.
Diogo Dalot has started every game since Ten Hag’s arrival at Old Trafford after the manager let it be known that Aaron Wan Bissaka is not in his plans.
Ten Hag himself admitted that Dalot needs a helper to help him, as the player is physically overloaded.
One report indicated that if Wan-Bissaka were to leave in January, the club would be looking to bring in a right-back and there is an option to recall Ethan Laird from his season-long loan with QPR in the Championship.
Hopefully, the club hierarchy works to get Ten Hag the reinforcements he needs as quickly as possible.
