Manchester United is all set to make a big splash this summer transfer window by bidding for Atalanta forward Rasmus Hojlund. According to reports from Getfootballnewsitaly.com, intermediaries are already working on a deal to bring the Denmark international to Old Trafford.
With a valuation of €60-70 million by La Dea, Hojlund has caught the eye of many top clubs in Europe, including Chelsea. The 20-year-old forward joined Atalanta from Austrian outfit Sturm Graz in August 2022 and had a remarkable 2022/23 Serie A campaign, scoring nine goals and providing two assists in 32 appearances.
Manchester United’s interest in Hojlund is not surprising, given their need for a quality striker, and the young Dane fits the bill perfectly. With his eye for goal and pace, Hojlund can be a valuable addition to the Red Devils’ attacking options.
In the Premier League, where goals are hard to come by, having a clinical finisher like Hojlund can make all the difference. Manchester United finished third in the Premier League table with 75 points from 38 matches, just one point behind cross-town rivals Manchester City.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm, Manchester United is looking to build a squad capable of challenging for the title, and Hojlund can be a key piece of that puzzle. The transfer window is still open, and it remains to be seen if Manchester United can convince Atalanta to part with their prized asset.
