Man Utd reportedly keen on 26-goal attacker, Mourinho ready to make a summer move

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to sign a new striker this summer…

It seems as though they could get their wish, too, with Gazza Mercato reporting that Man Utd are ready to make a move for Napoli forward Dries Mertens. According to Gazza Mercato, Man Utd scouts were in attendance as Lazio took on Roma – with Mertens and Lazio midfielder Sergei Milinkovic- Savic reportedly on their minds.

Significantly, the outlet notes that Man Utd were particularly interested in Mertens, who is reportedly a ‘concrete’ target for the summer.

This news has certainly peaked the interest of the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern, with a lethal forward of the calibre of Mertens undoubtedly what Man Utd need this summer. In all competitions for Napoli this year he has bagged a remarkable 26 goals, a record that even Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be proud of.

Indeed, our landlord thinks that Martens would fit the bill perfectly for Man Utd – with the futures of both Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney uncertain beyond this summer.

Man Utd fans – thoughts?
