One player that joined the Dutchman’s squad during the recent January transfer window that has quickly become a prominent figure in the team is Wout Weghorst.
However, despite now having 10 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit to his name, the centre-forward has only been able to find the back of the net on one occasion.
Should Ten Hag decide not to make Weghorst’s loan deal at United a permanent one in the summer, one other attacking figure that the club have been linked with in the past week who we feel should be a suitable replacement for him is Marcus Thuram.
Have you been disappointed with Weghorst?
This season has seen the Frenchman show just how much of an attacking threat he is and why he could be a more clinical figure for United than Weghorst.
Dubbed a “physical phenomenon” by talent scout Jacek Kulig, Thuram certainly has what it takes to be a deadly goal threat for United, which is something that Weghorst has not been as of yet in terms of scoring goals.
Taking all of this into account, we feel that if United have an opportunity to land a deal for the France international on a free transfer this summer, this should be a no-brainer for the club to do.
