Man Utd news: Four striker transfer targets identified including Erling Haaland | Football | Sport

Manchester United have identified four transfer targets as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seeks to strengthen his attack in the next transfer window. A new forward to lead the line is high on the agenda at Old Trafford following the departure of Romelu Lukaku last summer. Odion Ighalo arrived on a loan deal in January but a permanent decision has yet to be made on his future.

Harry Kane is also under consideration after the Tottenham icon fuelled talk of a move away by recently saying: “I love Spurs and always will love Spurs but it’s one of those things.

“I’ve always said if I don’t feel we are progressing as a team or going in the right direction, I’m not one to stay there for the sake of it.

“I’m an ambitious player. I want to improve, get better and become one of the top, top players.

“It all depends on what happens as a team and how we progress as a team. So it’s not a definite I’m going to stay there forever, but it’s not a ‘no’ either.”

Haaland and Kane are joined on United’s transfer shortlist by Lyon hotshot Moussa Dembele and RB Leipzig hitman Timo Werner.

Chelsea have also been linked with Dembele while a move to Liverpool has been touted for Werner.

A decision on a permanent deal for Ighalo, who has scored four goals in eight appearances, has yet to be made but he would cost £15million to keep from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua.

Speakijng to Elegbete TV, Ighalo said: “There is no offer on the table yet because the season is still on and I’m yet to finish my loan deal.

“I don’t just take decisions alone in my life. I have a principle and I have a guideline for everything I do. I always pray to God to direct me.

“I have seen so many tweets about this. I have seen so many people going crazy, (saying) ‘go back to China’, some say stay with Man United.

“Have you seen me say a word? I don’t have anything to say. When the season’s finished and I get two offers from the two teams, then I will sit and think about it, pray about it and whatever God says I should do, I will go with that.”
