Manchester United are looking for alternatives on the attack after Erik ten Hag realized that this department of the team is not good enough following the defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

The Dutch manager’s first and favorite option at the moment is Cody Gakpo, who had an outstanding season last year at PSV Eindhoven. The named Dutch Player of the Year in the Eredivisie scored 21 goals and gave out 15 assists in 47 games. He also was one of the club’s captains at only 23 years of age, as he is a natural leader.

However, this signing has complicated after PSV is only one step away from the UEFA Champions League group stages. it has been reported that if they fail to qualify, the player would be open for a move to Manchester United who is keen to sign him for the asking price of £35 million. Now, it looks like there is a new alternative.

The new option for the attack

It has been reported today by ABC Deportes that both Arsenal and Manchester United have shown interest in Villarreal’s Yeremy Pino. At only 19 years of age, he has played four matches with Spain’s senior team. Last season he played 40 matches with The Yellow Submarine, scoring 7 goals and handing out 4 assists. He is very quick down both wings and makes really good crosses.
