Manchester United splashed huge cash to bring Romelu Lukaku to Old Trafford from Everton during the summer transfer window.
And although he quickly adapted to life at Old Trafford by besting some early records set by some United’s legends like Ruud van Nistelrooy and Eric Cantona, Lukaku is currently out of form.
Additionally, Armenian star player Henrikh Mkhitaryan has also been poor in recent weeks, and it is telling on the club.
In such a case, it is advisable to sign a new attacker when the winter transfer window open, as this will add more quality to Jose Mourinho’s team.
Although the Old Trafford club have been linked with various players ahead of the winter window, one player Mourinho should focus on is Napoli’s Dries Mertens.
The player has been linked with the red devils for some time now, and it was made known that he has a release clause of €28 million in his current contract at Napoli.
Mertens is a versatile player who can effectively play anywhere in the attacking third.
He has been in superb form at his club this season, helping Napoli sit on the top spot of the Serie A table.
In 18 games in all competitions for Napoli, the 30-year-old has scored 12 goals and has provided 7 assists.
This is the type of player Mourinho needs in his squad to help win the title at the end of this season.
