Manchester United enter race for Tottenham target Alexander Sorloth

According to Turkish outlet Asist Analiz (h/t Express), Manchester United have joined Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth, who is on loan at Trabzonspor.

The 24-year-old Sorloth began his career at Norwegian outfit Rosenborg and had stints at Bodo/Glimt, Groningen and FC Midtjylland before he signed for Crystal Palace in January 2018.

However, his time at Palace wasn’t a success, as he featured just 20 time in one year, scoring and assisting one goal apiece before being moved out to Belgian outfit Genk on loan for the second half of the 2018/19 season.

The Times reported last week that Tottenham had expressed an interest in signing in the Norwegian international.

However, it was claimed that the striker was on his way to Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig. The Germans had agreed an £18m deal, with the fees set to be split between Palace and Trabzonspor. (h/t Express)

But as per latest developments, Sorloth’s medical with Leipzig was cancelled at the last moment, as either Tottenham or Manchester United made a late bid to hijack the transfer. (h/t Express)

It is no secret that Tottenham are in the market for a new striker this summer. And although, Sorloth struggled at Palace, the Norwegian has recovered well and was in brilliant form last season.

With a move to Leipzig seemingly off, it does offer Spurs with a chance to move in for the striker. However, negotiations will be complicated given that Sorloth’s loan deal with Trabzonspor doesn’t expire for another year. Plus, Manchester United’s entry into the picture makes the pursuit even more complex.
