Manchester United have been in need of a right winger for quite some time now. It is no secret that they had tried to sign Jadon Sancho in the previous summer transfer window but ultimately could not get a deal done.
And with the 2020-21 season nearing its end, the position remains a problem for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he will surely be looking towards finding a solution soon.
The Red Devils are now the second top scorer of the Premier League this season, having netted 58 goals from 30 games. But even then, finding the back of the net has been a worry in recent months. 9 goals in a game against Southampton and 6 against Leeds United have certainly helped boost those numbers and the Red Devils have not been a free scoring side for a while now.
As a result, it should come as a surprise if they try to sign more players in the forward areas over the course of the summer, with a right winger probably being near the top of their wishlist.

Manchester United linked with Dejan Kulusevski
As reported by Calciomercato, Manchester United appear to be interested in the Juventus right winger as Solskjaer is believed to be an admirer of his qualities. The Italian giants do not appear to be keen on parting ways with Kulusevski though.
The Swedish international is just 20 years of age, but has already made 11 appearances for his national side. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has scored 5 goals and provided 4 assists in 37 appearances for Juventus this season.
Juventus signed Kulusevski from Atalanta for an initial transfer fee of €35 million, making him the second-most expensive Swedish player ever behind only Zlatan Ibrahimovic at this point of time. The move to the Italian champions came on the back of a brilliant campaign with Parma, where he was on loan.
Kulusevski has the world of potential and if Manchester United can sign him, it would be a massive coup. But right now, it just seems very unlikely that Juventus would be ready to let him leave anytime soon.
