Manchester United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already been linked with making a signing in January.
It involves bringing back a former United trainee to Old Trafford.
The Sun claim United want Bournemouth’s Josh King, who came through the academy before leaving permanently in 2013.
King played under Solskjaer for the reserves and as a Norwegian, he is well known to the interim boss.
Since leaving United for Blackburn, King has carved an impressive career for himself, going on to sign for Bournemouth in 2015.
Able to play as a striker or a secondary forward, King’s versatility could suit the fluid football showcased by Solskjaer’s United at the weekend against Cardiff.
He is more mobile than Romelu Lukaku, but does not come with the same sort of scoring record. King’s best tally was in 2016/17 when he netted 16 goals. He has five to his name this season.
The report claims Bournemouth would want £25 million for King, with Tottenham also said to be interested.
United fans are split on the prospect of re-signing King, with many feeling there are better options out there.

If he’s cheap maybe but don’t see much point might aswell get someone younger

We could do with another squad striker. He’s quick, lightening quick. Decent finisher and would have a pretty good coach. Being a former youth player adds to the charm and good for coefficients.

We need better players who are proven on the bigger stage. No disrespect to King he does a cracking job for Bournemouth not United material for me. 🤷🏾♂️
