Manchester United have been linked with Danish international, Rasmus Hojlund, and the latest reports indicate he is close to signing for Manchester United.
As per today’s version of Diario de Almeria (print version), Atalanta are already looking to replace the 20-year-old striker, who is closing in to secure a move to Old Trafford.
The Spanish media outlet have mentioned that once Hojlund’s move to Man Utd is complete, the Italian side will move with everything to lure El Bilal Toure from Almeria.
It is reported that the ‘key to everything’ is held by Man Utd, who should get closer to the £73.5million fee (86 million euros) required to sign the striker from the Bergamo club.
Atalanta want the La Liga side, who survived relegation last term, to drop their asking price.
The 21-year-old Mali international has a release clause of 40 million euros but could be allowed to leave for a fee of 30 million euros.
Erik ten Hag needs a clinical goal scorer if he wants the team to challenge for the Premier League title next season and in all fairness, Hojlund is not good enough.
The youngster netted 9 goals in 1834 minutes in the Serie A last term i.e. a goal every 203 minutes and even the Almeria forward had a better record.
Toure netted 7 goals in 1272 minutes in the La Liga i.e. a goal very 182 minutes.
Have your say – Do you really think Man Utd should pay £73.5million to sign Rasmus Hojlund?
