Erik ten Hag ‘keeping tabs’ on striker Brian Brobbey ahead of January transfer window

Man United have eyes on Ajax striker, Brian Brobbey, ahead of the January transfer window.

Manchester United Football Club are gearing up for what could be a pretty big transfer window. The Old Trafford side, managed by Erik ten Hag, have been given a new lease of life after the INEOS takeover of footballing operations.

The Red Devils signed Rasmus Hojlund over the summer, though the Dane cannot carry the scoring burden single-handedly as he is doing at this moment in time. He certainly needs help.

Anthony Martial isn’t providing that, while despite the fact he’ll remain at the club until the summer, it’s looking like the Frenchman will be let go.

In terms of long-term replacements, Brian Brobbey’s name is the latest to be linked.

It comes from the Daily Mirror, who write that Ten Hag is ‘keeping tabs’ on the 21-year-old striker, as United begin to plan their summer transfer window.

Brobbey has previously worked under Ten Hag during their time together at Ajax, with the Dutch gaffer giving the young striker his senior debut a couple of years ago.

Ten Hag remains confident he will still be in charge beyond this season, hence, he’s already plotting his transfer business for the 2024/25 campaign.

As a stop-gap between now and the end of this term, United want to bring in a striker on loan, as they look to find a reliable forward who can score and add some much-needed firepower to this team.

The problem is, if Brobbey finishes the season strong, he could attract further interest. Arsenal are said to be keen on the young striker, while no doubt more clubs could take note if he continues to develop and grow as a player.
