Man United ‘identify’ three strikers on transfer target list after Sesko blow



Man United ‘identify’ three strikers on transfer target list after Sesko blow

Manchester United have drawn up a list of striker targets ahead of the summer transfer window which includes Ivan Toney, Jonathan David and Joshua Zirkzee, sources have told ESPN.

United are looking for a striker following the departure of Anthony Martial on a free transfer.

Benjamin Sesko has also been heavily scouted, but the Slovenia international has decided to sign a new contract at RB Leipzig.

Rasmus Højlund is currently the only recognised striker in United’s squad. The 21-year-old scored 16 goals in his first season at Old Trafford but the club are conscious of giving the Denmark international more competition up front.

Zirkzee enjoyed a good season with Bologna, scoring 12 goals in 37 games. The 23-year-old, who spent time at Bayern Munich earlier in his career, has a £34 million ($43.2m) release clause in his contract.

Toney and David are of particular interest because they are about to enter the final year of their contracts at Brentford and Lille, respectively.

Sources have told ESPN that Brentford will demand more than £50m for Toney, who is part of England’s squad at Euro 2024.

Canada international David, 24, scored 26 goals for Lille last season including 19 in Ligue 1.

United have also monitored Brian Brobbey, although a source has told ESPN that much of their interest has been driven by Erik ten Hag.
