Tottenham Hotspur  are looking to add more depth to their attacking department and they have identified the Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford as a summer target.

According to the latest reports, the Londoners have already opened talks with the Red Devils regarding a move for the 24-year-old England international and it will be interesting to see if the two clubs can agree on a fee in the coming weeks.

Rashford had a mediocre season with Manchester United last year but there is no doubt that the 24-year-old is a prodigious young talent who has plenty of time to fulfil his potential.

A world-class manager like Antonio Conte could bring out the best in the Manchester United attacker and selling him this summer might not be a wise decision for the Red Devils.

Manchester United are already lacking in depth in the final third and they are set to lose Edinson Cavani this summer.

It remains to be seen whether the Old Trafford giants can bring in quality alternatives this summer without the attraction of Champions League football.

As for Rashford, the forward is a boyhood Manchester United fan but he could be tempted to join Tottenham if the Red Devils cannot guarantee him a regular game time.

It remains to be seen whether the newly appointed Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag can convince the 24-year-old to stay at Old Trafford beyond this summer.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are overly reliant on Harry Kane and Son Heung Min in the attack. Bringing in another quality attacker could elevate the side further and help them challenge for the major trophies next season.

Rashford is well settled in the Premier League and he could make an immediate impact at Tottenham if he joins the London hours next season.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs can pull off the signing in the coming weeks now.
