Manchester United fans want Aubameyang in January window

Manchester United fans want the club to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang than any other strikers in the January transfer window.

According to a poll conducted by Forza Football for IBTimes UK, around 3,700 Manchester United fans tuned in to voice their opinion on which striker they want the club to sign this winter.

The Gabon International who is in fine form for the German outfit this season after scoring 24 goals in all competitions notched up 34% of the votes in total.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane who was linked with a £40m move to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window earned 19% of votes.

While 9% of the fans voted for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, despite breaking the Premier League record by scoring in 11 consecutive matches this season.

Watford’s Nigerian forward Odion Ighalo, who carried his sensational form from Championship to English Premier League this season with 13 goals this season was voted by 7% of the fans.

Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial are the only senior forwards in a United squad that found it hard to break down opposition defenses this season.

After 22 Premier League matches this season, the Red Devils managed just 28 goals just one more than 19th placed Sunderland and 15 less than rivals Manchester City.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal may be still in search for an addition to solve the goal drought, but we are witnessing little movement in the transfer market so far in the current transfer window.

They have recalled both Adnan Januzaj and Will Keane from their respective loan spells, but seems like unlikely candidates to fix their woes in front of goal.

Both Harry Kane and Aubameyang have recently expressed their wish to stay at their respective clubs, while Ighalo recently claimed in an interview with the Sun that he may not turn down if United come calling.
