Manchester United join race to sign Gambian striker Adama Bojang

According to The Guardian, Manchester United, along with six other Premier League clubs, is pursuing the signing of Gambian striker Adama Bojang.

The 19-year-old has garnered attention from Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

United is keen to strengthen their attacking options in the upcoming transfer window and has been linked with various strikers. However, financial constraints may hinder their ability to secure their preferred targets, as clubs are demanding substantial fees.

Adama Bojang, valued at just £2.6 million, has emerged as a potential option for United. His current club, Steve Biko FC, is open to negotiations.

Several German clubs, including RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt, have also expressed interest in the Gambian Under-20 forward. An unnamed German club recently submitted a bid for Bojang, and it is believed that he may prefer a move to the Bundesliga.

Nevertheless, an offer from a club like Man United could potentially change his stance and prompt a change of mind.

However, it is unlikely that he would immediately feature in manager Erik ten Hag’s plans. Nevertheless, he possesses the potential to become a key player for the first team in the near future.

Bojang demonstrated his abilities by scoring two goals at the recent Under-20 World Cup, including a brace in a 2-1 victory over Honduras.

Additionally, he netted four goals during the Under-20 African Cup of Nations in March, aiding his country in reaching the final and earning a spot in the team of the tournament.

Standing at 6ft 3in and possessing a similar style of play, Bojang has rightfully drawn comparisons to Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

While United has been linked with Osimhen, they might opt for a younger version of him by pursuing Bojang instead. He could make an immediate impact with his potential to quickly adapt to European football.
