REPORTS: Erik ten Hag already prepared to sign another 22-year-old forward from Ajax next summer

Despite the loan signing of Wout Weghorst from Burnley in January, Manchester United football club are still very much aware of the need to further strengthen their attacking options.

Do remember that the Old Trafford side have enjoyed quite an interesting 2022/2023 season and are currently occupying the third position on the Premier League table.

However, the Red Devils have been heavily reliant on goals from Marcus Rashford and are now looking to sign a new centre-forward when the transfer window opens next summer.

And if reports are anything to go by, then Manchester United football club have been linked with a transfer move for young Ajax centre-forward Mohammed Kudus.

The 22-year-old Ghana International, who signed up for Ajax after departing Nordsjaelland back in 2020 has been an important member of the first-team squad over the previous seasons.

The young striker has been hugely influential for Ajax so far this 2022/2023 football season, scoring 17 goals and providing four assists in 34 appearances in all competitions.

His excellent performances in front of goal is believed to have caught the attention of Erik ten Hag and according to reports from Daily Mail, the Manchester United manager wants to sign him.

The reports further claimed that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag view him as the ideal replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who departed Manchester United earlier this season.

It is believed that Erik ten Hag wants to add more firepower to his attacking options ahead of next season and he is keen on bringing Mohammed Kudus from Ajax.

But then, it remains to be seen if Ajax football club will be interested in listening to transfer offers from Manchester United for the young striker when the transfer window opens.
