Manchester United are considering a move in signing Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane in the summer transfer window, according to Goal.
The 21-year-old was leading the north London club's attacking division after Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado struggled to find the back of the net last season. He scored 30 goals and managed five assists in all competitions.
Mauricio Pochettino wants to retain Kane after the club's chairman Daniel Levy ruled out the striker's sale. However, the 20-times English champions will test Tottenham's resolve by making an official bid for their frontman.
Javier Hernandez and Nani will return to Old Trafford after spending the 2014/15 season on loan. United are set to make a £50m approach and are set to include Hernandez, Nani and Adnan Januzaj as a part of the deal in signing Kane.
The player himself has committed his future to White Hart Lane and ruled out any summer move away from his current employers. Tottenham also have no intention to let Kane leave the club, especially after such an impressive season.
However, United believe including three of their players as a part of the deal could convince Pochettino's side to allow Kane to join the Red Devils, since Van Gaal's side are looking at strengthening their front line, as his strikers have failed to score regularly in the Premier League.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager decided against signing Radamel Falcao on a permanent transfer after the end of his loan spell. The Colombian international was signed from AS Monaco on a season-long loan deal last summer.
Another United striker Robin van Persie's future at Old Trafford remains uncertain. He was linked with a move to Lazio, which was dismissed by the Italian club's president. However, the Dutch international has hinted that a move to Juventus could be on the cards.
Apart from Van Persie, the United manager has Wayne Rooney and youngster James Wilson as the only two strikers in the squad and the team are looking to make Kane the most expensive British player.
Should the England international decide to make a switch to Old Trafford, his arrival would bolster United's strike force for the next season as Van Gaal looks to challenge Chelsea for the title.
