Manchester United is preparing to upgrade the striker position, as they are now being linked to signing striker Zach Clough.
The 20-year-old Bolton striker has been scouted by Man United for months, according to The Daily Star.

Clough has also been pursued by Arsenal, but Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has a dossier file on the English youngster.
The Bolton prodigy has even been compared to Argentina superstar Lionel Messi.
Man United are hoping to find their scoring threat of the future, as Robin van Persie is already set to depart for Fenerbahce.
Striker Wayne Rooney may start to decline soon, as he is also entering the latter stage of his career at age 29.
Clough may be the perfect piece to Man United’s future at striker, especially if he can live up to his “English Lionel Messi” moniker.
Although Clough did not see much action for Bolton in the 2014-15 season, he made them count as he scored six goals in just 10 appearances.
