MANCHESTER UNITED have drawn up a three-man shortlist of striker targets, according to reports.

The Red Devils are understood to be looking to bolster their attacking options ahead of next season.

ESPN report United's wishlist includes Ivan Toney, Jonathan David and Joshua Zirkzee.

Both Toney and David are set to enter the final year of their contracts at Brentford and Lille, respectively.

However, Brentford are still set to demand £50million for England star Toney, the report adds.

Meanwhile, Zirkzee's Bologna contract includes a £34million release clause this summer.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding Erik ten Hag's future, United are pushing ahead with their transfer business.

The club are keen to add a striker, with Rasmus Hojlund the only senior centre-forward at Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial is set to leave on a free transfer at the end of the month, whilst United have missed out on Benjamin Sesko.

The Slovenian is expected to pen a new deal with RB Leipzig following links with a move to the Premier League.

United have now identified their alternative targets in the position, though.

Toney scored four goals in 17 Premier League appearances for Brentford last term after returning from his betting ban.

The 28-year-old's form was also enough to earn him a place in the Three Lions squad for Euro 2024.
