Erik ten Hag wants to lure West Ham flop Sebastien Haller from Ajax to Manchester United.
The 52-year-old Dutchman will take over a Red Devils team in desperate need of a makeover this summer.
And Ten Hag believes Haller is the best player to compete with Cristiano Ronaldo up front next season.
After a £45 million move from Eintracht Frankfurt, the Hammers flop only managed 10 Premier League goals.
He was moved to Ajax 18 months later and has prospered in the Netherlands, scoring 46 goals in 62 appearances, 11 of which have come in the Champions League.
And The Sun reports that he may return to England to work with his current manager again as he attempts to get into the Premier League for the second time.
He is not the only player known to Ten Hag who is anticipated to be given a second shot next semester.
Van de Beek has made only four league appearances for the Red Devils since moving from the Amsterdam Arena to Old Trafford in July 2020.
And, while his United career appeared to be ended when he was loaned out to Everton in January, that obituary appears to be premature.
According to 90Min, David de Gea will be offered a new contract as part of the club’s plans for the summer.

Corinthians won the Copa Libertadores thanks to a brace by Maycon.
Corinthians temporarily took up first place in Group E of the Copa Libertadores after defeating Boca Juniors 2-0 on Tuesday.
Maycon scored twice for Corinthians, who improved to six points from three games after losing their first group game away to Always Ready.
The 24-year-old, on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, scored in the fifth minute, getting on the end of Fagner’s cross and heading in past Javier Garcia.
Despite playing at home, the Timao were more than content to absorb Boca possession, with only 33.8% of the ball in the second half.
They ultimately doubled the lead in the 78th minute, with Willian breaking free and sending in Roger Guedes, whose shot on goal was parried into Maycon’s path for the rebound and finish.
Estudiantes are in the box seat thanks to Boselli’s talent.
Estudiantes took a commanding lead in Group C on Tuesday, defeating RB Bragantino 2-0 at home.
Augustin Rogel opened the scoring for Estudiantes in the 54th minute, heading in from close range, three minutes before Mauro Boselli’s fantastic lob over Cleiton in the Bragantino goal.
Los Pincharratas have seven points after three games, one more than Bragantino, who has four points after a 2-1 win away to 10-man Velez Sarsfield.
Group D shares have been spoilt
In Quito, Independiente del Valle and Atletico Mineiro drew 1-1 to share first place in Group D after three games.
Hulk scored in the seventh minute, with Guilherme Arana, a recent Selecao callup, providing the assist.
The Negriazules kept up the pressure and were rewarded five minutes later with a merited equalizer from Junior Sornoza.
