Arsenal legend Ian Wright has urged Manchester United to step up their efforts to sign Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
That United desperately need a reliable goalscorer.
Kane is reportedly on United’s wishlist as the Englishman approaches the last year of his contract with the North London club.
The Peoples’ Person relayed that Kane is open to an Old Trafford switch.
Another report by The Athletic detailed that the 29-year-old prioritises signing a new deal and extending his Tottenham stay.
According to Wright, United making an approach for Kane in the summer is a “no-brainer.”
Speaking on Wrighty’s House, the former Arsenal goalscorer said, “If Man United have got any serious thinking about what we need to do next, it’s a No 9. It seems like a no-brainer that Harry Kane is the person [they should sign].
“He [Kane] takes them [United] somewhere else.”
Wright added that the difference between Arsenal and United in the 3-2 loss at the Emirates is that the Gunners could rely on the services of a natural target man – Eddie Nketiah.
“One of the main differences was Eddie Nketiah, a No 9. That’s what Man United didn’t have because they had (Wout) Weghorst up there, but he wasn’t a threat. If we’re going, to be honest, he was not a threat.”
Wrighty voices his opinion that Kane could do a stellar job at United for three years.
He could be the final piece in Ten Hag’s piece and make United genuine title contenders.
On Kane’s links to Bayern Munich, Wright dismissed this as interest being drummed up by the player’s camp.
