The 22-year-old has been able to form a potent partnership with summer signing Romelu Lukaku in the Inter Milan attack.
Manchester United let Lukaku join Inter Milan in the summer in a £74m deal but they are yet to replace him.
The Red Devils have been linked with attacking options such as Moussa Dembele of Lyon, Mario Mandzukic of Juventus and Erling Haaland of Red Bull Salzburg apart from Lautaro Martinez who’s seen as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.
