Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Atalanta striker.
Since joining the Italian club, the 20-year-old Danish forward has made quite an impression, and other European clubs are taking notice of his achievements.
According to a report in the Mirror, Manchester United has assumed the lead in the transfer race, although it is still unclear if they will be able to sign the 20-year-old in the near future.
At the end of the season, Manchester United will undoubtedly need to sign a talented goal scorer. Hojlund might prove to be a good long-term investment, and he and Marcus Rashford might make a potent team.
The Manchester United assault has been led all season by the England international, but he will need more assistance in 2019.
Erik ten Hag may be able to help Hojlund realise his potential to become a top-tier player for the Red Devils.
The former Ajax manager has a strong track record of developing young talent, and he might aid the Danish forward in continuing his development by providing him with consistent playing time at Old Trafford.
It is unclear if Atalanta will permit the gifted young striker to depart the club at the end of the current campaign despite his 14 goals and six assists in all competitions.
His career would significantly advance with a move to Old Trafford, and participation in the Premier League would hasten his advancement.
