Report: Manchester United interested in signing 28-year-old Atalanta forward

Manchester United are reportedly exploring the possibility of signing Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata.

TeamTalk report that the 28-year-old has emerged as a possible target to bolster the attacking options following the summer exits of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

It is claimed United are scouting a number of forwards, but Zapata has particularly impressed in the Serie A.

The Colombian international has scored 4 goals in four starts for Atalanta this season, after scoring a brilliant 28 last term.

Zapata is currently on a two-year-loan from Sampdoria, but Atalanta have the option to buy him at the end of the season for £10m.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately needs new striking options and Zapata would provide some much needed competition in the front-line.

The Reds now only have 17-year-old Mason Greenwood as their only fit recognised striker after injuries to Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

An attacker has to be prioritised in January; United have managed just six goals in their last seven games and the lack of goal scorers in the team is very worrying.

Zapata is a deadly finisher and certainly a player to keep an eye on in the coming months as we approach the winter transfer window.

Currently sitting in third position , Atalanta face Sassuolo away tonight in the Serie A, where Zapata is expected to start.
