Manchester United have struggled all season in front of goal, and therefore are reportedly targeting two strikers this summer.

According to The Times, Erik ten Hag will attempt to bolster his attacking ranks with the addition of both Harry Kane and Danish forward Rasmus Hojlund.

Ten Hag aims to sign a world class forward along with a younger, potential world beating striker. This is where the 20-year-old Hojlund comes in as he undeniably has potential.

The striker joined Atalanta from Sturm Graz last summer for £15 million, with his value more than doubling with The Times adding he could be going for £40.

Hojlund is 6’3, quick, strong and blessed with technical ability belonging to a player not his size. He also bares a glancing resemblance to Erling Haaland with the blonde hair and built physique.

Hojlund would be an amazing option to have under Kane, who would undoubtedly teach him a thing or two. Kane is thought to be available for around £100m.

The problem in attack

United’s attacking woes have persisted the seasons success. Scoring just 51 goals in 35 games, a whopping 41 goals behind league leaders Man City.

Ten Hag’s options up front have been poor, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Wout Weghorst and Anthony Martial all failing to stake a claim for the number nine position.

Just six goals combined between the three strikers means United have severely lacked, almost always relying on the defence to win games.

The sides only consistent scorer has been Marcus Rashford, with the midfielder such as Casemiro chipping in along with the wingers.

Therefore it makes complete sense to overhaul the striking department, which likely signals the end for Martial.
