Manchester United are reportedly considering a move for Southampton striker, Danny Ings as both the manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club hierarchy are looking to add further attacking options ahead of next season.

United were given a boost last week when Edinson Cavani extended his contract by a further 12 months, but the club management want to add another striker as there still remain question marks whether both Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood will be able to take the burden that comes with playing through the middle.

Solskjaer confirmed that they are still looking at different options up front despite Cavani signing a new deal, as they look to challenge for the league title next season.

"We're looking to strengthen the squad of course. There are many, many, many things you have to consider when you put a squad together. I'm not saying that if Eddie [Cavani] stays that means someone else in a forward position won't come in."

United are being linked with wantaway Tottenham Hotspur star, Harry Kane but Telegraph reports that the England skippers massive price-tag could see the Red Devils turn their attention towards Ings, who has just one-year remaining on his contract with Southampton.

Ings who has played for Liverpool in the past, is a prolific goalscorer in his own right as seen by the 46 goals he has netted for the Saints in just 97 appearances for them so far.
