Manchester United striker James Wilson is a player in-demand on transfer deadline day with Tottenham and West Bromwich Albion trying to close a deal to sign him on a temporary basis. The young forward, who broke into the team during Ryan Giggs' stint as interim manager has failed to make the match day squad for all of the Red Devils' six matches this season.
According to the Daily Mail, up to 15 clubs are interested in signing the United forward, who is highly thought off at Old Trafford and the striker is reportedly considering moving away from the club to get regular playing time. Wilson is also on the radar of clubs, who are willing to sign him on a permanent basis.
The departure of Wilson will leave Louis van Gaal with just one recognised striker in his squad in Wayne Rooney, who has been restored to his preferred central strikers' role. The 20-times English champions are on the verge of signing 19-year-old Anthony Martial from Monaco, but the Frenchman is still too young to be considered a finished product.
The Red Devils have also parted with Javier Hernandez, who has moved to Bayer Leverkusen and Adnan Januzaj with the Belgian joining Borussia Dortmund on a temporary basis. Meanwhile, the Dutchman has indicated that he will use Marouane Fellaini as a striker this season, and demonstrated it unsuccessfully during United's 2-1 loss to Swansea City.
Louis van Gaal has reportedly hinted that the 19-year-old striker will get a chance to fight for his place in the first-team this season, but his absence from the match day squad for all six games this campaign has prompted the forward to think of a move away from Old Trafford. The report claimed that the youngsters at the club are not too pleased with the former Bayern Munich manager's approach.
