Manchester United are reportedly planning a move for Andre Silva as they aim to strengthen their strikeforce ahead of next season.

Silva has been in sublime form for Eintracht Frankfurt and he has netted 19 goals across all competitions, 18 of those coming in the Bundesliga.

His form has caught the eye of the Red Devils and Sky Germany claims that the club may look to sign him in the summer.

The club currently have Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani as the main strikers and the latter is presently the first-choice.

Cavani, however, may not be a long-term option at the age of 34 and the club are looking for someone who can lead the line for the next decade.

Silva has been identified as one of the top targets and United believe they can land him from Frankfurt for around £30m this summer.

Atletico Madrid are also keeping tabs on the marksman and his price tag may rise over the coming months with his consistent displays this term.
