Andy Cole names striker who would be a 'good addition' to Manchester United and partner Rasmus Hojlund
Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole believes the club should try and sign Brentford forward Ivan Toney.
After joining the Red Devils in the summer, Hojlund is seen as United's premier source for goals and opended his account on Wednesday night in the team's 4-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
However, at the age of 20, Hojlund still has a long way to go in terms of his progression as a player, and therefore he could benefit from forming a partnership with a more experienced striker.
One player which could fill that void is Toney who Cole believes could be a good signing if United can acquire the England international's signature.
"If Manchester United did move to sign Ivan, then he’s only going to make them a little bit better than they find themselves at this exact moment," Cole told Betfred.
"He’s been a key player for Brentford and he’s scored plenty of goals for them in the Premier League and if the opportunity came up, then why shouldn’t Manchester United consider signing him?
"It all depends on what Manchester United see themselves doing going forward. Ivan’s 27 years old and he could even help Rasmus Højlund come through.
"If they are interested in signing him, then I believe Ivan could be a good addition to this Manchester United team."
United's season continues on Saturday where they will be looking for a much needed win against Burnley in the Premier League.
