Fabrizio Romano drops huge update on the 'next Erling Haaland' amid Man Utd and Arsenal links
| Last updated
Fabrizio Romano has revealed that sought-after striker Rasmus Hojlund is set to change agents soon, suggesting he could be gearing up for a summer transfer.
Top Premier League clubs are always on the look out for the next big thing, and 20-year-old striker Rasmus Hojlund appears to be just that.
Hojlund has been dubbed the 'new' Erling Haaland, but not just because of his name, appearance and nordic background.
The Danish attacker is earning himself a reputation as a master marksman. He's made waves this season for Serie A side Atalanta, scoring eight goals and assisting two more in 25 appearances.
It was only 14 months ago that FC Copenhagen sold Hojlund to Austrian side Sturm Graz for around €1.7m, but barely six months later Atalants parted with €17m to take him to Italy.
Now, with reports that Manchester United and Arsenal are among the top European clubs sniffing around, it looks like the Danish international could be about to make another big jump forward in his career.
Hojlund to make key decision
Speaking in his latest YouTube video, Fabrizio Romano delivered some news that hints at a busy summer for Hojlund.
"I'm told - and this is important information - that Rasmus Hojlund is set to pick a new agent in the next days, weeks, ahead of the summer transfer window," Romano said.
"We know how important agents are in deciding the next move; [whether] he's staying at Atalanta for one more season, maybe moving and going to another country.
"Which club, and which relationships they have: this is going to be a crucial point for Rasmus Hojlund's future."
It's rather convenient that Man United are reportedly interested in starting a Hojlund-Haaland rivalry in Manchester - after all, the Dane supports the Red Devils.
"Now that you ask, I will not hide the fact that I am a huge Manchester United fan," Hojlund said earlier this year when asked which team he follows.
"So personally, it would be one of the biggest things for me [to play for United], but of course that doesn’t mean that I would turn down other big clubs if the offers come at some point."
