Manchester United could make a move for Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik as they look to improve their attack, according to reports.

The Poland international has scored 10 goals in 10 starts in all competitions for the Naples-based club this season.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the lookout for strikers and goals as he plots his January business with the Norwegian saying recently that he has the “backing” of United’s board.

There is a possibility though that Man Utd will not sign any players with Solskjaer insisting he will only buy if they identify the right signings.

Milik struggled slightly in his first couple of seasons at Napoli following a €35million move from Ajax but he has flourished in the last couple of campaigns.

The Sun claims Man Utd want Milik ‘to rescue their floundering frontline’ as Solskjaer looks for support for Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.

Milik, who has 18 months left on his contract, is ‘in negotiations’ with Napoli over extending his current deal at the club .

And Solskjaer is ‘ready to pounce’ but only if ‘talks break down’ between the prolific striker and Napoli.

The report adds that with talks ongoing, Man Utd ‘may have to wait until the summer to get their man’.
