What is the asking price for Rasmus Hojlund?


Rasmus Hojlund, a striker for Atalanta, has emerged as one of the most sought-after players on the summer transfer market, with interest from Manchester United, Arsenal, and Real Madrid.

The three teams are all looking for a center forward. Currently, both Man Utd and Arsenal lack players in that position; Man Utd is using Burnley loanee Wout Weghorst as a stop-gap solution. Meanwhile, Real Madrid will soon need to add players in that position due to Karim Benzema’s advancing age.

Together with these three European powerhouses, Serie A teams Juventus, Inter, Milan, and Napoli are among those said to have been closely studying the player.

Hojlund, meantime, has propelled himself to the front of the discussions as a result of a successful start to 2023. The Danish international made his Atalanta debut in September of last year after joining from Sturm Graz. This season, in 33 appearances, he has scored 14 goals and assisted on five more.

The player has also been dubbed the “new Erling Haaland” because to his impressive speed and power.

Additionally, Hojlund’s profile has been raised by his impressive play during the international break. Hojlund is currently leading the way in goals scored in the Euro 2024 qualifying matches after scoring a hat-trick against Finland and a double against Kazakhstan.

What is the asking price for Rasmus Hojlund?

Atalanta hopes to recover over €40 million for a player they only paid €17.2 million for last summer, according to Fichajes.

This amount is more than Hojlund’s Expected Transfer Value (xTV) of €19.5 million, but it has been steadily increasing month over month since his transfer to Italy and won’t look outrageous if he maintains his excellent play through the remainder of the campaign. In fact, it might begin to seem really sensible at that time.
