Rasmus Hojlund - Denmark

Manchester United are preparing a new bid to hire the services of Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta in the summer transfer window.

The famous Italian journalist has revealed the Serie A side want at least a fixed fee of £51.7m plus other objectives to sell their prized asset.

It is reported that the gap is close therefore the negotiations will carry on as the Red Devils increasingly press to secure Hojlund.

As far as the player’s preference is concerned, he has made it clear he wants to move to Old Trafford. However, the youngster respects Atalanta and does not want to ruin the relationship with them.

Since moving to Italy, the Danish international, who has six goals in as many games for his country, has only netted 10 goals and provided 4 assists in 34 appearances for the Bergamo side.

Erik ten Hag needs a proven quality No.9 to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal for the Premier League title.

Robin van Persie was the last man to win the PL Golden Boot for Man Utd, who eventually went on to win the Premier League in 2012-13.

Since then, no United player has even managed to score 20+ goals in a single league campaign. Do you think Rasmus Hojlund has what it takes to resolve the strike-force conundrum at Old Trafford?
