Man Utd join Newcastle, Arsenal interest for Ekitike on Ten Hag recommendation

Manchester United are keeping close tabs on Reims striker Hugo Ekitike - a favourite of Erik ten Hag.

ESPN says Ten Hag will have the final say on the targets the club eventually pursue, and Ekitike is thought to be one of the ones he's most interested in.

The Reds will be in the market for at least one new striker, and Ekitike's potential plus his rumoured transfer value, thought to be as low as £13million, does make him a very appealing prospect from a United perspective.

They could face stiff competition for his signature, though, with a number of Premier League sides such as Arsenal and Newcastle also thought to be scouting the teenager.

It's easy to see why he's attracting such attention after enjoying what's been a breakout campaign for Ligue 1 side Reims, netting nine league goals in just 21 appearances.

In terms of a profile, Ekitike's is very unique. He stands at 6ft2in, making him an obvious threat in the air and a good target man.
