Ten Hag pushing Man Utd to beat Newcastle to Reims striker Ekitike

Incoming Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is targeting Reims striker Hugo Ekitike.

Ekitike has emerged as a potential target but United could face competition from other Premier League clubs such as Arsenal and Newcastle, as well as Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, says ESPN.

The highly-rated Frenchman, who has scored nine goals in 21 appearances for Reims in Ligue 1, will cost around £13million.

Borussia Dortmund have also been linked with the player as Erling Haaland appears to be on his way to Manchester City.

Newcastle had agreed a £12million deal for the French forward on deadline day in January but the transfer fell through as the player opted not to make the switch to the Premier League.

The Magpies are expected to be busy this summer after being bought by a Saudi-backed consortium in October, with Eddie Howe thought to be prioritising a striker.
