Bournemouth have rejected an offer from Manchester United for the services of Josh King, according to Sky Sports.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very thin on options upfront following the injury suffered by Marcus Rashford and has been on the lookout for a versatile forward to replace the England international. United were linked with Edinson Cavani of Paris Saint-Germain at first, but more recently with the likes of Islam Slimani, currently on loan at AS Monaco from Leicester City, and Odion Ighalo, plying his trade in China with Shanghai Shenhua.
However, it seems King was on Solskjaer’s radar all the time. The pair of them worked together in United’s reserve team so they know each other well.
But on the other hand, the Cherries don’t want to lose their top Premier League goalscorer now when their top-flight survival is at stake. The 28-year-old has so far scored 45 goals in 151 league games in the black-and-red of Bournemouth.
