LOWDOWN: Man Utd linked Dortmund’s Laursen, is he worth the battle with Liverpool & Arsenal?

Are Manchester United wasting their time with this transfer target?

Liverpool, Man United and Arsenal are fighting each other off in hopes to secure the Danish Dortmund ace.

Manchester United are currently in dire need of a solid centre back, a world class midfielder, an established right winger and a 30 goal a season striker. So, who are they after? Another 20-year-old left-winger. According to reports, Solskjaer is after the prodigy that is Jacob Bruun Larsen from German side Borussia Dortmund, who clearly have a fantastic scouting regime but need to retain their star players in order to become European giants and not a feeder club.

Larsen, 20, currently plays for Dortmund having 17 starts to his name last season. The BVB boss believes that the Danish winger has a bright future ahead of him, and is keen to implement him into first-team plans more regularly throughout next season. He could potentially be a star at Manchester United, however, the talented Dane could be a star anywhere. Man Utd desperately needs to improve their squad this summer, if they want any chance of gaining top four.

The youngster was signed by Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp during his management at Dortmund, making his link to Liverpool much stronger than his links to United and Arsenal.

With Solskjaer facing the uphill battle of rebuilding the world’s most disappointing club since 2013. It seems efforts should be placed elsewhere as they have already signed the Swansea City star Daniel James, who will one day run the left-wing at Old Trafford.

Liverpool and Arsenal should be left to battle for the Dane’s signature whilst Man Utd secure more pivotal deals such as Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire, Pepe and Ben Yedder.

Arsenal is reportedly limited to a £45million budget this summer, and with links to Kieran Tierney, they must sell players in order to sign more than one or two promising players.
