Manchester United have enquired over the possibility of signing Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki, according to reports.

After completing a deal for Bruno Fernandes, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now on the lookout for a striker to bolster his attack with Marcus Rashford sidelined.

The Norwegian boss currently has just Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood as centre-forward options.

And the Express report that the Red Devils have contacted the Canaries over the Finland international’s availability.

Solskjaer would reportedly like to sign a striker on Deadline Day.

However, it’s claimed that Norwich have batted away the interest as they have no intention of letting their star leave.

Daniel Farke’s side sit bottom of the Premier League and know that if they let Pukki, who has netted 11 of their 24 goals, leave Norfolk, they would find it tougher than it already will be to avoid relegation.

Elsewhere, it’s thought that United still hold an interest in signing Josh King from AFC Bournemouth.

The Norway international started his career at Old Trafford but the Cherries, who are also in a fight for survival, will not want to lose him.
