Man Utd joined the race for 27-goals Salzburg forward

By | April 8, 2021

Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka is reportedly on the radar of Premier League giants Arsenal, Liverpool and Man Utd.

The 22-year-old has been in stunning form for the Austrian outfit this season, founding back of the net 27 times and setting up eight more in 31 games across all competitions during the 2020-21 season.

Daka has unsurprisingly caught the eye of top European clubs with his prolific performances, and the Salzburg forward has registered a goal or assist in each of his last 12 league matches – scoring in 11 of them.

According to Austrian outfit Salzburger Nachrichten, Daka is wanted by three English powerhouses in Arsenal, Liverpool and Man United – all of whom are believed to be in the market for a new striker this summer.

The report adds that the Zambia international is currently valued at €20m (£17m), but Salzburg are believed to garner a much higher figure than that if he takes a step up when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

Daka remains contracted to the Austrian giants until 2024, and the youngster will hope to follow in the footsteps of his ex-teammate Erling Braut Haaland, who is now one of the best youngsters in Europe.
