Sima has impressed for Slavia Prague this season and could present the solution to the troubles in front of goal that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have faced this campaign
Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for Slavia Prague forward Abdallah Sima, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks for a solution to the lack of goals in his squad. Only Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes have scored more than 11 goals this season, with reinforcements needed if they are to challenge for the Premier League title.
Now, the Manchester Evening News reports that the Red Devils have set their sights on Sima, who is still only 19. Sima has scored 19 goals this campaign to fire Slavia to their third successive Czech First League title.
Sima began his career at French club Thonon Évian Grand Genève before joining Czech second-tier side MAS Taborsko in March 2020. He was not at Taborsko for long, moving to Slavia’s second team last August, scoring four goals in six appearances.
After that healthy goal return, he was promoted to the senior side, scoring 11 league goals and notching five assists to help Slavia go unbeaten this season. His impressive performances have seen him called up to the Senegal national side, making his debut in an Africa Cup of Nations qualification match against the Democratic Republic of Congo last month.
Sima has mainly played on the right-wing for Slavia, scoring 15 goals in 25 appearances from that position. But the Manchester Evening News report that sources believe the 21-year-old’s long-term place lies at centre forward, where he has made only a handful of outings. The Senegalese appears to be a highly versatile player, with the ability to also play on the left of a front three .
