Manchester United are in the front row to sign Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
The Denmark international is currently in his debut season at Atalanta where he has bagged nine goals and four assists.
His ability on the ball has caught the eye of United and it is reported that they are pushing to sign him in the coming weeks.
Tuttomercatoweb claim that contacts have intensified between the clubs but United have yet to make a formal transfer bid.
Erik ten Hag has already spoken with Hojlund through multiple video calls and the striker is said to be convinced over a move.
As things stand, Atalanta value the young Dane at €50 million and may not accept anything less for his services this summer.
United don’t have any competition at the moment but the scenario may change in the coming days. Juventus could join the race.Dusan Vlahovic has been touted to leave Juventus for Bayern. The Bianconeri have earmarked Hojlund as a possible successor.
