Manchester United are reportedly keen on a double January swoop to land RB Leipzig’s first-choice striker Timo Werner and Barcelona’s pacy French winger Ousmane Dembele.
According to a recent report from the Manchester Evening News, as cited on Sport, the Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are prepared to spend big in the new year to improve their roster.
United have lacked options in the attack after losing both Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku during the summer.
Werner has long been connected with a move to the Premier League, but it is indeed Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool who have been touted as a possible destination in the past.
The 23-year-old star has enjoyed a fine start to the season, scoring five goals in six top-flight appearances.
Blaugrana’s Dembele is also believed to be a target with the PL heavyweights looking to add some much-needed creativity to their starting eleven.
However, the report adds that any offer is likely to be rejected by the La Liga club, who want to give Dembele more time to prove himself in Catalonia.
