Sporting Lisbon are demanding a huge sum from the likes of Manchester United for Sweden striker Viktor Gyokeres.

Gyokeres has scored 43 goals in 50 outings for Sporting and is one of the form attacking players in European football this term, with many reports in the media suggesting that he could be sold in the coming transfer window.

Europe’s elite are queueing up to prise the Sweden international away from Lisbon after his stunning start to life with Sporting, and Manchester United are one of the clubs that are desperate to delve into that transfer kitty and add a 30 goals a season forward to that attack

Benjamin Sesko seemed to be the number one transfer target for United – but he has reportedly made the decision to snub a move away from RB Leipzig this transfer window and stay put for at least another Bundesliga season.

Man United would want to negotiate a fee in the region of £50m-£60m, but his club are unwilling to let him leave on the cheap and will be demanding his £85 million release clause is met before allowing him to depart the side.

He may be good enough for that Portuguese League – but he could really struggle to make the impact that he would like in the Premier League – it is another level.

The Red Devils need a striker that could give the club different options – give them a chance of adding some more goals in a weekly basis and we are just not sure that Gyokeres is the man for that.

There are plenty of options for Manchester United in the Premier League and we are sure that there are a few strikers that fans would love to see arrive. So paying £85 million may be far too much for the Red Devils this transfer window.
