Manchester United have not yet made plans to sign a winger in the January transfer window amid the ongoing situations with Jadon Sancho and Antony, who are both out of the team and unavailable for selection for the time being.
Writing in his exclusive column for CaughtOffside today, Fabrizio Romano admitted that the Red Devils could consider taking to the market in the winter if these situations are not resolved by then and the players are still unavailable.
It remains to be seen what will happen, but some fans would argue that United need an upgrade out on that right-hand side anyway, with neither Sancho nor Antony really living up to their full potential at Old Trafford so far.
See below as we take a look at five names who could be potential options on the market for United if they do decide to strengthen in attack this January…
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in action for Napoli
One of the finest attacking players in Europe last season, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia took Serie A by storm with a series of superb displays for Napoli as they won the title. It seems clear that the Georgia international is destined for a great career at the highest level, and he’s already been recently linked as a player United like in a report from the Daily Mail.
One issue is likely to be that Napoli will surely do all they can to keep hold of Kvaratskhelia, especially if clubs come calling in the middle of the season, but MUFC would do very well indeed to put all they can into this potential transfer deal and make it an urgent priority.

Another top talent shining in Italy at the moment, Federico Chiesa would surely do a job for United and give them something a bit different in attack after the recent lack of impact from Sancho and Antony. Juventus aren’t quite the force they used to be, so perhaps the player would have some interest in leaving them for a big move to the Premier League if someone like United were to come calling.
Liverpool have recently looked at Chiesa as one of their options to replace Mohamed Salah, so United would do well to move quickly for the 25-year-old or he’s sure to end up at one of their rivals or another European giant.
Jarrod Bowen must be one of the most underrated players in the Premier League at the moment, and it only seems fair that he comes into the conversation for a big club like United if they do decide to take to the market to strengthen in attack.
The England international is a talented, intelligent, and versatile attacking talent, who can operate well on the right-hand side or as more of a false nine, so he would surely have plenty to offer this rather stale United front line.
A player in fine form for Wolves at the moment, Pedro Neto is also surely going to attract plenty of interest from bigger clubs in the weeks and months ahead if he carries on performing like this.
Pedro Neto has been linked with Arsenal and could be a good option for Man Utd
Fabrizio Romano has exclusively revealed to CaughtOffside that Arsenal have been monitoring Neto, so United may have to move fast in order to win the race for the Portuguese wide-man.

A player who has had to wait for his chance to really shine, Takefusa Kubo has been a joy to watch for Real Sociedad so far this season, having previously gone out on loan from Real Madrid several times without really making much of an impression.
Still only 22 years of age, it seems clear that Kubo is now coming into his own, and if he keeps up these performances he is sure to be among the players admired by United and a host of other top sides.
