Manchester United board are determined to bring on a topline centr-forward in 2023.
The Telegraph reports that United manager Erik ten Hag tried to sign a striker over the summer but was met with protests after eyeing former West Ham star Marko Arnautovic.
Now United are on the lookout for another Austrian front-man, Benjamin Sesko, according to The Telegraph.
The club have been monitoring the 19-year-old striker since he broke into RB Salzburg’s first team last season.
But United could have difficulty trying to sign the youngster as he has a pre-contract agreement with Red Bull group and is set to join RB Leipzig.
He could also cost up to £40millon – a big fee for a forward who has scored just six goals in 23 games this season.
But United are believed to be keen on signing a striker with a lot of potential and Juventus attacker Dusan Vlahovic has also caught the eye.
Vlahovic signed for the Italian side only last January but United are reportedly monitoring his situation with Max Allegri’s side struggling in Serie A and out of the Champions League.
The Serbia international is also likely to command a significant fee after Juventus splashed out £62m on him amid interest from Arsenal.
