Manchester United are expected to make a move for a striker in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Anthony Martial has struggled to find the back of the net on a consistent basis this season. On the other hand, Edinson Cavani has shown that he is still capable of leading the line but at 34 years of age, he has had his fair share of injuries and is not a long-term solution for the club.
Cavani has also been linked with a move away in the summer although it now looks like he is open to staying at Old Trafford. But even if that ends up being the case, the Red Devils might still have a new striker on their summer wishlist.
Dusan Vlahovic is someone that the club have been linked with in recent times. As reported by TuttoMercatoWeb (via Mirror), the striker is valued at around £52 million (€60 million) by Fiorentina. Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund are also believed to be interested in the Serbian international.

Vlahovic can be a brilliant signing for Manchester United
Vlahovic has already scored 19 goals in 33 appearances in Serie A this season. That is very impressive for a player who is only 21 years of age and is expected to only get better from this point forward.
The fact that Fiorentina have struggled this season and currently sit at 14th in the Serie A table makes it perhaps even more impressive. Thus, the sky looks the limit for Vlahovic if he can continue to develop at this rate.
In the current financial climate, £52 million is going to be tough for any club to shell out. But considering the fact that Manchester United have been linked with the likes of Erling Haaland and Harry Kane, both of whom are rated at well over £100 million, a deal for Vlahovic might prove to be a shrewd move on the part of the Red Devils.
