Man Utd still need to come to an agreement with his current side and it’s our understanding that if negotiations drag on Hojlund will make a transfer request to push a move through. The Danish striker recently joined Amsterdam-based agency SEG, whose clients include Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag.

We understand that the firm’s top brass, including CEO Kees Vos, and agent Kees Ploegsma, who helped broker Memphis Depay’s move to Man Utd in 2015 from PSV Eindhoven, are heading the move for the youngster.

Hojlund made the switch of the agency was with the ambition of making a Premier League move and the SEG's relationship with Ten Hag, and therefore Man Utd, will provide the club leverage in securing the services of Hojlund.

But sources in Italy inform us that Atalanta have stuck a £60million price-tag on Hojlund and the club would rather make a sale in 2024, when it’s thought that he would have a higher value. The clubs still remain apart in valuation, too.

Man Utd will secure the signing of Andre Onana from Inter next week after meeting with the player’s side and agreeing on a deal. The club will then look to bring in Hojlund as their third addition of the summer transfer window.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a breakout campaign last term, scoring ten goals in 34 games in all competitions. His contract expires in Bergamo in 2027, having only joined Atalanta last year.
