In the summer transfer window, Manchester United made a significant investment to acquire Danish center-forward Rasmus Hojlund from Serie A side Atalanta.
According to reports in the media, the Red Devils are keen on strengthening their strike force further, with Lois Openda being the latest name on their radar.
Sacha Tavolieri suggests that Manchester United has expressed interest in securing the services of the talented 23-year-old striker. The club has already initiated contact and inquired about the conditions for his potential signing.
Openda made the move to RB Leipzig last summer and has expressed his desire to stay. According to the journalist, the German Bundesliga side values their prized asset at approximately €90 million (£78 million).
During the previous season, the Belgian international started 29 games in Ligue 1 for RC Lens, contributing significantly to their qualification for the Champions League. He scored 21 goals and provided 4 assists in the competition.
In the current campaign, Openda has made an impressive impact, directly contributing to as many as 6 goals (4 goals and 2 assists) in 6 league starts.
This week, he found the back of the net in the UEFA Champions League against Manchester City, although the defending champions secured a 3-1 victory in that contest.
Regarding his international career, the young talent is yet to make a starting appearance for Belgium but has already earned 11 caps and scored two goals.
Manchester United has experienced significant departures in their striking department in recent years, including Ronaldo, Cavani, and Lukaku. As a result, there is a recognized need to bolster their depth up front, even though Hojlund has shown promise, and Martial remains inconsistent.
