BREAKING NEWS: coming from Manchester United, Man Utd leading race to sign “extraordinary” new striker for Erik ten Hag This would help bolster the Red Devils attacking options. The fact that Scott McTominay is United’s top scorer in the league this season with just five goals speaks volumes about their struggles, with Hojlund, Antony and Marcus Rashford netting just three times between them. Manchester United are believed to be the front-runners to sign an “extraordinary” attacking player.

According to a recent transfer update, Manchester United is thought to be the front-runner to sign a "extraordinary" attacking player.


Erik ten Hag’s team clinched a significant 3-2 win against Aston Villa on Boxing Day, yet prevailing issues within the squad demand attention. Despite Rasmus Hojlund breaking his Premier League goal drought with the decisive goal against Villa, there’s an evident need for attacking reinforcements to enhance their prowess in the final third.

The team’s top scorer in the league this season, Scott McTominay, managing only five goals, highlights their struggles, compounded by Hojlund, Antony, and Marcus Rashford collectively netting just three times.

Serhou Guirassy, a standout at VfB Stuttgart and currently second only to Harry Kane in the Bundesliga’s scoring charts, is linked with a potential move to Old Trafford. Similarly, Viktor Gyokeres, excelling at Sporting CP after his time at Coventry City, is also on Manchester United’s radar.

Reports from Il Resto del Carlino via Sport Witness reveal Manchester United’s keen interest in securing Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee, with multiple top clubs eyeing the 22-year-old as a future star. United is positioned as a primary contender for his signature, described as the leading suitor in the pursuit.

While Bayern Munich retains the option to buy Zirkzee back after his transfer to Bologna, the current club is reluctant to consider a January departure. Consequently, unless United can sway them with a substantial offer, securing Zirkzee might be deferred until the summer.

Zirkzee’s potential addition could significantly benefit Ten Hag’s squad, given his impressive Serie A performance this season—seven goals and two assists in 16 starts—earning praise from Bologna’s manager, Thiago Motta, for his exceptional qualities and diligent work ethic.

Considering Hojlund’s ongoing development, Zirkzee could provide robust competition and potentially facilitate Anthony Martial’s departure next summer. Furthermore, the Dutchman’s continuous improvement over time suggests an exciting future prospect alongside Hojlund within the team.

Hojlund’s growth phase indicates unrealistic expectations for consistent performance, and Zirkzee could offer valuable support, potentially paving the way for Martial’s departure. The prospect of having both Zirkzee and Hojlund in the squad bodes well for an enticing future for Manchester United.
