MANCHESTER UNITED should try and sign Victor Osimhen if they miss out on Harry Kane, according to former striker Louis Saha.
Erik ten Hag wants to sign a striker this summer and Tottenham star Kane is said to be his number one target.
But there is fear Daniel Levy could prove a tough negotiator and try to hang on to the England star, despite his contract expiring in 2024.
If that happens United could switch attention to a different target, and Saha believes Osimhen should be top of the wishlist after firing Napoli to the Serie A title with 22 goals in 27 games.
Saha told Daznbet: “There are not many alternatives to Kane for Man Utd. Victor Osimhen is an obvious one at the moment, though, he’s scoring a lot of goals for Napoli.
“Very fit, very strong and agile. But it may take him more time to adapt.”
United have been linked to Osimhen but getting a deal oer the line could prove difficult with Napoli said to be demanding £133m.
The Red Devils are also said to be interested in Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani, who could also command a significant fee, as well as Atalanta hitman Rasmus Hojlund.
Saha belives both should be on United’s shortlist, adding: “I think Randal Muani would be a very good signing for Man Utd.
“Not only as a number 9, he can play either side of a three. He’s a very clever player, very quick, sharp with his feet and very intelligent.

“He’s already established a good link with Kylian Mbappe for France.
“He’s aware of everything, he has the talent to go short or long, he’s very clever and he will be a real danger in the Premier League if he comes, especially with Rashford and Sancho.
“That will be really hard for defences. It could be a very clever move, there is room for improvement. There are lots of names like that who can contribute.
“But Muani is a very intelligent player, he has lots of stamina, he can run all day and will fit into the game plan that Ten Hag loves. He’s one for the future.
“There is a young boy, Hojlund at Atalanta. But no one offers the guarantees like Kane does.”
