Man Utd transfer news – striker odds: Bookies reveal top SEVEN most likely alternatives after Arnautovic deal is axed

BETFAIR have compiled a list of the top SEVEN most likely striker targets for Manchester United after their pursuit for Marko Arnautovic broke down.

United had a £7.6million bid rejected for the Bologna forward and talks have now ended between the two clubs.

Cristiano Ronaldo was left out the starting line-up for Sunday’s dismal display in the defeat to Brighton, despite Anthony Martial being out injured.

Ronaldo failed to make a mark in the game when subbed on and his absence highlighted a striker crisis at the club.

Betfair make Ivan Toney the 6/1 favourite to be the forward the Old Trafford side turn to next to help bolster the attacking line.

The Brentford striker was slapped with a £40million price tag by the Bees earlier in the window when Newcastle were reported to be circling.

Toney scored 12 times and registered five assists in his maiden Premier League term last year and played 33 times for the Londoners.

He joined Brentford two years ago in a deal worth up to £6million and contributed heavily to their promotion campaign that season.

Harry Kane is next best at 7/1 with Betfair.

The Spurs star was plotting his exit from Spurs last year when it looked likely he would be joining Manchester City.

They’ve since signed Erling Haaland to lead the line so a move for the England talisman seems unlikely.

United have been linked with Kane in the past but with Antonio Conte and Champions League football this year, a move north would seem unlikely.

Fellow English centre-forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin is next in the betting at 10/1.

He joined Everton as an 18-year-old from Sheffield United in 2016 for £1.6m and has played just shy of 200 appearances for the club.

DCL has been linked with Newcastle this summer after an injury-laden year last season where Everton narrowly avoided relegation.

Bayern Munich pair Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane are next best – both at 14/1.

Gnabry is enjoying a more sustained run in the Munich side, with his and Kingsley Coman’s form keeping Sane out the team.

Both players play predominantly on the wings, though their presence could push Marcus Rashford into a central role.

Sane is a former Man City player though; would that move attract him?

Again, both would have to ditch Champions League football for a shot at the Europa League.

The final Betfair option would be an interesting one – ex-United man Memphis Depay.

Depay looks increasingly likely to be let go by Barcelona this summer as they attempt to balance their books to register new players Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha and Jules Kounde.

It’s believed Depay would be owed £16million to be paid out his contract, leaving Barca in a complicated situation.

Depay didn’t really hit any sort of great heights during his previous United career between 2015 and 2017.

But he was a different player when leaving England for Lyon, scoring 76 times in 178 games.

He is out of contract at the Nou Camp next summer, meaning he could move for free next year.
