Transfer: ‘He’s a proper number 9’ – Sheringham hands Man United name of striker to sign

Former Manchester United striker, Teddy Sheringham, has handed the Red Devils name of striker to sign this summer transfer window.

Man United are keen to sign a new striker this summer in a bid to bolster their attacking line ahead of next season.

The Red Devils have already signed midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea and goalkeeper Andre Onana from Inter Milan.

However, Sheringham wants Man United to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli, adding that the Nigerian international is a proper number 9.

“Manchester United have always brought in top, top quality strikers to help them challenge for the title,” Sheringham told Lord Ping.

“But it looks like United may have to look elsewhere for a forward this summer.

“I am not sure about [Rasmus] Hojlund at Atalanta but I do really like [Victor] Osimhen at Napoli – he looks like he knows where the goal is. He’s a proper number nine that leads the line.”

Osimhen was superb for Napoli last season as he won the Serie A top scorer award.
