Wilson to Manchester United?


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen on recruiting the services of Callum Wilson from Bournemouth this winter.

The 27-year-old has become a vital figure for the Cherries after overcoming his regular injury concerns and he has made 26 goalscoring contributions since the start of the previous season.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer is keen to continue with the trend of pursuing young and hungry British players and Wilson has emerged as a potential target for the winter transfer window.

United currently have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as the only senior striking options following the departure of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan – the latter on a season-long loan.

Martial has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a thigh problem and this has practically left Solskjaer with just Marcus Rashford to depend upon for the centre-forward duties.

United graduate Mason Greenwood has been regularly talked up for a starting role but so far, Solskjaer has resisted the temptation of utilising the teenager from the beginning.

Manchester United were reportedly keeping track of Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi when he was representing Kosovo on international duty this month.

The 25-year-old has made a splendid season to his Fenerbahce career with three goals from two appearances and he has also impressed for the national team with goals against England and the Czech Republic during the recent Euro 2020 qualifiers.

According to Aksam, talent-spotters from the Red Devils had monitored the performances of Muriqi, who possesses a genuine aerial threat with his height and physique.

Muriqi was recruited by Fenerbahce from Caykur Rizespor this summer for just £3.1m after an impressive 2018/19 season where he contributed 17 goals across all competitions.

United have been tipped to pursue a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who parted ways with the club before the summer transfer deadline and it remains to be seen whether they are prepared to make a move for Muriqi.

Aside from United, Tottenham Hotspur have also been deemed to be tracking the progress of the marksman with manager Mauricio Pochettino keen on pursuing a specialist back-up striker to Harry Kane.
