Manchester United have entered the race to sign AZ Alkmaar striker Vincent Janssen, who is a priority target for Tottenham Hotspur. The Dutch forward had a prolific season in the Eredivisie and is looking for a move away from his current employers this summer.

According to the Dutch website voetbalprimeur.nl, the Red Devils have made enquiries regarding the striker's availability this summer with Jose Mourinho looking to shore up his attack ahead of next season. The north London club, however, are said to be leading the race along with Wolfsburg, but could lose out if United join the race.

Mauricio Pochettino is desperate to bring in a striker in the summer to ease the burden on Harry Kane and according to the Mirror, he has identified the Netherlands international as the perfect backup for last season's Premier League's golden boot winner. Tottenham are said to have held talks and launched a £12m ($17m) bid to bring the striker to White Hart Lane, but are yet to agree terms with the striker.

The Eredivisie club have denied a bid being made, but have admitted that the striker could leave this summer with a number of clubs across Europe interested in his services. The report claims that West Ham United are also keen on the striker after being rebuffed in their efforts to sign Alexandre Lacazette.

Mourinho has already completed the signing of centre-back Eric Bailly from Villarreal, and has made strengthening his forward line a priority. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the club's primary target, with the striker said to have agreed a one-year deal, but the manager is looking at other options, should the Sweden international – who is a free agent – decide his future lies elsewhere.
