Manchester United place four strikers on their shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window, according to a report.

Manchester United have reportedly placed four strikers on their shortlist ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils signed Odion Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua at the end of January but are expected to move for a more long-term option ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

According to the Evening Standard, Lyon's Moussa Dembele, Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez, Celtic's Odsonne Edouard and RB Leipzig's Timo Werner have all been identified by the 20-time English champions.

Martinez and Werner have been heavily linked with Barcelona and Liverpool respectively, though, and it has been claimed that Dembele is currently United's number one option in the final third.

The Frenchman is allegedly desperate to complete a move to Old Trafford this summer despite suggestions that Chelsea are also interested in the 23-year-old.

Dembele scored his 20th club goal of the season against Metz on Friday night, with 14 of those strikes coming in France's top flight.
