United want a striker

Having dispensed with the services of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku this summer, Manchester United find themselves short of options for the striker position. Anthony Martial is currently out injured and Marcus Rashford was also a doubt for their clash against Arsenal, though Rashford recovered in time to play as the two teams walked away with a point each. It could have easily been otherwise though, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could have found himself stuck with a choice between playing Jesse Lingard out of position and putting his faith into 18-year-old Mason Greenwood for such an important game.

The Norwegian was asked in a recent press conference about whether the club would be in the market for a striker, and his reply was short and to the point: “Of course”.

United reportedly tried to sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus during the summer transfer window but failed to get the deal over the line, and they’ve recently been linked with interest in Olympique Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
