Manchester United are keeping tabs on three attackers as potential signings after calling off their pursuit of Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is prioritising other targets in the summer transfer window rather than pursuing Bale.

The same article states that the 20-time English champions are interested in Lille forward Nicolas Pepe after the Ivory Coast international’s prolific season in Ligue 1.

According to the same story, Lyon striker Moussa Dembele is also being eyed up as another potential Ligue 1 recruit as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his attack.

The Daily Mirror go on to add that Manchester United are also interested in Scotland winger Ryan Fraser, who has little over a year left on his current deal at Bournemouth.

However, the report adds that the Cherries star could be hesitant about a move to Manchester United given that Daniel James and Anthony Martial are already competing for a spot on the left wing.

Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League for the fourth time in six campaigns.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson stood down in 2013.
