Manchester United U23 are seeking to sign a new striker.

Neil Wood's side are preparing for their first campaign back in the Premier League 2 Division One following promotion last season, but are well aware of the need for a new attacking addition.

The Manchester Evening News says United will take another striker on trial at reserves level this week as they look to bolster their options ahead of the new league campaign.

Anthony Elanga is the only natural striking option available to United at U23s level with the club suffering a setback following injury to D'Mani Mellor. The 19-year-old is set for a long-spell on the sidelines following an ACL injury.

It means 18-year-old Elanga, who is naturally a left winger, has been tasked with leading the line for United U23s during their pre-season preparation.
