Manchester United have reportedly identified Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a shock transfer target this summer as the Red Devils have identified him as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has, so far, only made one signing ahead of the new campaign with Daniel James joined them from the Championship side Swansea City.

However, the Red Devils are expected to be proactive in the coming weeks as they consider which players to keep at the club and sell after only finishing on the sixth place of the English top-tier during the most recent campaign.

According to talkSPORT presenter Andy Goldstein, Man Utd are now contemplating whether to launch a move for the Gabon international forward, who has just two years left on his contract.

A deal appears unlikely at this stage, although it is reported that the Red Devils are willing to spend at least £70m to sign former Dortmund star.

The Gabon international has managed to found back of the net 22 times and provided five assists from 36 appearences in the Premier League this campaign.

Meanwhile, Man Utd and Arsenal planning to go head-to-head to sign Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire who has been rumoured with an exit from King Power Stadium, however, the Red Devils seems to be frontrunners to lure England international defender at Old Trafford for the next season.
