Manchester United’s need for a new striker is well documented.
Wayne Rooney has yet to score in four Premier League games this season.
The England captain could soon be United’s only senior forward, as Javier Hernandez is set for a move to Bayer Leverkusen.
However, it seems that Louis van Gaal is poised to sign another English forward to support Rooney.
Queens Park Rangers hitman Charlie Austin is currently odds-on to move to Old Trafford before Tuesday’s 6pm transfer deadline.
Last night, United were 33-1 with skyBET to sign Austin this week. They are now just 5/4, while the move is odds-on with BetFred, Ladbrokes and BetVictor.
QPR no.9 Austin scored 18 Premier League goals last season. He has already bagged four times in the Championship this term.
