Manchester United will be hoping to keep the pressure up on the Premier League’s top two with victory over Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday. 

Erik ten Hag’s side arrive on Merseyside in fine form having lifted the Carabao Cup last Sunday, before following that up with an FA Cup fifth round win over West Ham United on Wednesday.

In the league, United have lost just one of their last 11 games and currently sit third in the table, 14 points behind leaders Arsenal although they do also have a game-in-hand on The Gunners.

Despite their successful season so far, it appears that Ten Hag and those in charge of the club are still looking to bolster United’s squad this summer.

According to ISport, The Red Devils are monitoring former Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who is currently playing for Serie A side Roma.

The Englishman left The Blues in the summer of 2021 following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku at Stamford Bridge, and he has since impressed in Italy.

Abraham, 25, has scored 34 goals in 86 matches for the Italian side across all competitions, including 27 goals during an impressive debut campaign last year.

Abraham is a target for several Premier League clubs this summer

His former club Chelsea have a buy-back clause that becomes active this summer, and Roma have reportedly set their asking price for the striker at the same figure of £67 million.

During his time in London, Abraham scored 30 goals in 82 games, finishing as the club’s top scorer across all competitions during the 2019/20 campaign.

Both Everton and Aston Villa are also said to be interested in the forward, with the two Premier League sides reportedly having had approaches rejected back in January.

The report claims that, while United are interested in the England international, they are still prioritising a move for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer.

The Nigerian could cost as much as £100 million, but it appears that the fee hasn’t deterred United’s interest.

United will be in the market for a striker this summer when Wout Weghorst’s loan deal from Burnley comes to an end.

The Dutchman was signed as a short-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo – who departed back in November – but he is unlikely to stay at Old Trafford beyond this summer.
