‘The discussion with Hojlund, 20, is said to be necessary if the club fails to woo Harry Kane from Tottenham before the beginning of next season’

Denmark international and Atalanta striker, Rasmus Hojlund, may likely shift allegiance to the Old Trafford going by the progress of talks with Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag to woo him over.

Hojlund only joined Atalanta last year but has been viewed as a potential striker signing by Manchester United.

The discussion with Hojlund, 20, is said to be necessary if the club fails to woo Harry Kane from Tottenham before the beginning of next season.

Sources say the SEG International agency that represents Ten Hag are also trying to acquire Hojlund as a client.

Meanwhile, Hojlund has struck 15 goals in 41 games for Atalanta, having only moved to Italy from Austrian side Sturm Graz last year, according to Manchester United Newsletter.

 He has plundered five goals in his last two games for Denmark.

Recall that Ten Hag last month admitted that he had been in dialogue with potential targets when he said that players were “keen” on joining United.

“I see a big difference in comparison with last year,” Ten Hag said. “There were a lot of reservations last year when I spoke with players and now many players see the project, what’s going on, the dynamic and the ambition in this project, the quality especially. They are really keen to come, I’ve noticed that.

“It looks like there were a lot of reservations last year, a lot of doubts when we approached players. This year, many quality players really want to come.”

United are also continuing to monitor Eintracht Frankfurt goalscorer Randal Kolo Muani. Muani has scored 23 goals in 45 games for Eintracht, who finished seventh in the Bundesliga.
