Stuttgart's Sasa Kalajdzic, a striker, has held preliminary talks with Manchester United regarding a possible move to Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag is eager to bring in a dynamic forward this summer due to his need for additional firepower and Cristiano Ronaldo's uncertain future.
The Red Devils have reportedly chosen to consider Kalajdzic, 25, as a potential replacement for the Portuguese superstar, according to Sky Germany.
In recent years, Bayern Munich has been connected to the Austrian international.
Lewandowski, who is undoubtedly en route to Barcelona, is thought to have him as a long-term replacement.
Bayern are reportedly not interested in Sebastien Haller right now, though, as Dortmund recently hired him to spearhead their offense.
The 20-time English champs are interested in the forward who has 22 goals in 48 Bundesliga appearances.
However, Stuttgart has not yet received any suggestions.
But according to the source, Kalajdzic's "main ambition" right now is to sign with one of the elite EPL teams, with West Ham United, Brighton, and Southampton also expressing interest in him.
The only new addition for United so far is Tyrell Malacia, who just arrived from Feyenoord.
Erik ten Hag stated on Monday that he wants to strengthen the midfield and the offense before the 2022–23 season.
