Wout Weghorst could prevent Man United from signing a striker in January

Wout Weghorst could prevent Man United from signing a striker in January

Former Man United loanee Wout Weghorst could potentially stop the club from bringing in a new recruit.

Former Manchester United loanee Wout Weghorst could prevent the Red Devils from signing a striker in January, sensational reports claim.

United splashed out £72 million on Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta in the summer but the Dane has struggled in front of goal.

He's been prolific in the Champions League, scoring five in six games - but he is still yet to open his account in the Premier League after 13 matches.

It's been reported that United are looking to go back into the market for extra firepower in the January window and are open to selling the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, Casemiro and Anthony Martial.

Martial, incidentally, has attracted interest from Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

Turkish newspaper Dirilis Postasi say that the Frenchman has a meeting scheduled with Fener board member Selahattin Baki over a potential transfer.

A big sticking point is set to be whether the "financial conditions of the player are suitable".

Martial's contract is expected to expire at the end of the 2023/24 season, with United reluctant to trigger an extension clause in his deal signed back in 2019 when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was in charge.

However, Fenerbahce are also admirers of Weghorst, who is now back in the Bundesliga on loan at Hoffenheim.

United are of course well aware of the Dutchman as he joined them in the January window last season.

Having spent the first part of the campaign on loan at Besiktas, he got his dream move to United and finally won the first trophy of his career at Wembley.

But he scored just twice in 31 appearances and failed to find the net in the Premier League.
