Manchester United is actively seeking reinforcements for their striking department, with reports suggesting a potential move for Viktor Gyokeres from Sporting CP.

As reported by Correio da Manha, Sporting CP aims to retain Gyokeres until the end of the season to enhance their title-winning prospects,

but Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea, are reportedly considering advancing and meeting the player’s £86.8 million release clause.

Gyokeres, a Swedish center-forward, is among the highest-paid players at Sporting CP, earning approximately 45,000 euros per week.

Sporting CP is open to rewarding the 25-year-old to ensure he remains with the club until the season’s conclusion. This allows a potential departure in January if the valuation of £86.8 million is met.

Gyokeres has showcased his goal-scoring prowess in the current season, netting 10 goals in 13 league appearances for Sporting CP.

Overall, he has started 19 times across all competitions, contributing to an impressive 25 goals (17 goals and 8 assists).

Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford has faced challenges in replacing world-class goal scorers like Ronaldo and Cavani.

Despite the big-money summer signing of Hojlund, who has scored only once in 15 Premier League outings,

Manchester United is considering a substantial investment of £86.8 million for the potential acquisition of Viktor Gyokeres in January.

What’s your perspective on Manchester United potentially paying £86.8 million to secure the signing of Viktor Gyokeres in the upcoming transfer window?
