Man Utd Reportedly ‘Makes Contact’ with One of Europe’s Most Lethal Strikers as Ten Hag Seeks Hojlund Support, Valued at €17.5m

It has been reported that Manchester United has gotten in touch with one of Europe’s most dangerous strikers.

Due in part to their lackluster attack, the Old Trafford team has had a mixed start to the Premier League season.

Marcus Rashford, who scored about 30 goals in all competitions the previous season, has only scored twice so far this season, and Rasmus Hojlund, a £72 million summer acquisition, has yet to score in the Premier League.

United needs offensive reinforcement badly as the team has only scored 16 goals in the league through 13 games thus far.

Numerous reports, including those from Santi Aouna of Foot Mercato and Ed Aarons of the Guardian, claim that United has expressed interest in signing Serhou Guirassy of Stuttgart in January.

According to Aouna, United has inquired the Guinean international, who has scored 15 goals in ten Bundesliga games this season.

According to reports, Guirassy has drawn interest from Roma, AC Milan, and Newcastle United. It is widely believed that his release clause is limited to €17.5 million (£15 million).

Most people were surprised by Guirassy’s performance last season, as the 27-year-old only scored 11 goals. With 22 goals domestically this season, only Harry Kane of Bayern Munich has scored more than the Stuttgart striker in the top five leagues in Europe.

Considering that they have given up 33 goals in all competitions this season—the most in any United campaign after 20 games since 1962–1963, the team may also look to strengthen their defense in January.

Ten Hag said following United’s Champions League match against Galatasaray on Wednesday night: “We ought to have won three points.” This will be the same in more games, both away in Copenhagen and at home against Galatasaray.

“We played so good. So I have to make a compliment to my team but I also have to criticise the team and us as a coaching staff and me as a manager.

“We are not defending well enough, we are leading 3-1 and you can’t afford such mistakes because it makes a difference.”

He added: “We are in a project and we are moving forward, improving. We are going in the right direction. I know which steps we need to take.”
