Manchester United: Ten Hag considering Zirkzee to solve Hojlund crisis

Manchester United is reportedly eyeing Erik Ten Hag due to a challenging start in the Premier League and Champions League season. The club’s performance is under scrutiny, with recent £75 million acquisition, Rasmus Højlund, specifically targeted. Despite being brought in from Atalanta last summer, the Danish striker has so far failed to make a significant impact at Old Trafford. According to the news platform ‘Voetbalzone,’ Højlund played his 14th Premier League game last Saturday, yet again not managing to score. However, the young forward has netted five goals in the Champions League, from which the Red Devils have now exited.

Reports from the Netherlands suggest that Manchester United is contemplating acquiring a new forward to alleviate pressure on Højlund, with recent attention drawn towards Joshua Zirkzee. Zirkzee, a Dutch player from Bologna, has been outstanding in Europe. The proposed approach for the Dutch attacker would be immediate, aiming for the January transfer window. This follows a general consensus that Manchester United can’t afford further delays in strengthening their squad.
