Manchester United are now closely monitoring the situation of Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram, MySportDab reports.
The Frenchman’s contract will expire at the end of the season and he is now allowed to speak with foreign clubs this January.
However, United are only likely to sign players on loan due to some financial constraints.
The Red Devils have been evaluating all options like Barcelona’s Memphis Depay, Marcus Thuram, and Joao Felix since Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Al Nassr.
Erik ten Hag has always made it clear that Manchester United need a new striker to keep up with their form this season.
United’s win at Wolves on Saturday marked their first three consecutive wins in the Premier league since early September.
Speaking before the Wolves game, Ten Hag said the club must set the limits high’ as they tried to sign new players.
‘It’s always very hard. Strikers are not cheap especially in January,’ said Ten Hag.
‘But our limits must always be very high. We need do everything to get the right players in, and help the team.
‘The timing and availability is important. There are so many circumstances that affects that. It’s a long month ahead for us.
‘Right now, we have a squad, and players matching our criteria. But we have many games coming. It’s a tough league and many competitions. So we need more players to cover.
‘We need quality players to cover. And also we need competition in the team.
‘So we are trying to sign only the right player for our squad, but it has to match our sporting criteria, and some financial criteria.’
