MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly identified Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland.
Despite losing out on signing the Norwegian marksman to BVB last year, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently admitted that he is still ‘following’ the player in Germany.
But it appears the Red Devils are keeping tabs on another player in the Bundesliga ahead of a possible summer move.
According to Sky Germany, the 25-year-old is being chased by United with the club impressed by his goalscoring exploits since joining Frankfurt in 2019.
Portugal international Silva banged in 16 goals in all competitions last term.
And he has already scored more this season, as he has chipped in with 19 goals and five assists in 22 outings.
It has been claimed that Frankfurt are seeking a fee in the region of £26million for their talisman who is tied down at the club until 2023.
However the news report states that United face competition from Atletico Madrid in the hunt to secure his services.
United are also rumoured to be interested in another Bundesliga star as they weigh up an offer for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman.
Reports suggest that the Premier League giants could offer the French forward a lucrative £260,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford to tempt him into joining.

Bild claim that Bayern are desperate to offer Coman a new deal to fend off interest from United.
Another player that has been linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams is PAOK forward Christos Tzolis.
The Greek starlet, 19, is said to be on United’s radar after banging in 15 goals in 33 matches.
Though they could miss out on the youngster to Dortmund who are also keen on snapping him up.
