An exciting development has unfolded in Manchester United‘s camp ahead of Arsenal clash on Sunday as Rasmus Hojlund‘s name finds a spot in Denmark’s national squad for the September international fixtures.

This inclusion not only signifies the young striker’s return to fitness but also raises the possibility of his potential debut in this upcoming game.

Having secured Rasmus Hojlund’s services from Atalanta in a summer transfer worth £72 million, Manchester United‘s hopes were put on hold as the player grappled with a back injury.

However, recent indicators including comments from manager Erik ten Hag have suggested his imminent return to the field.

While immediate expectations for a blistering start might be tempered, the significance of having a natural center-forward cannot be understated.

Manchester United’s attack has at times appeared toothless, with a solitary goal across their initial encounters against Wolves and Tottenham.

The trials of Marcus Rashford in the central striker position emphasized the need for alternative firepower.

The reunion of Anthony Martial and Rashford with the latter assuming his favored left-wing role provided a much-needed boost in the thrilling 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest in the previous Saturday’s fixture.

Foreseeing Hojlund’s immediate placement in the starting lineup at Emirates Stadium would be premature, yet his presence in Denmark’s national squad bodes well for potential contributions off the bench if required.

Kasper Hjulmand, Denmark’s manager, indicated a discussion with ten Hag regarding Hojlund’s game time, underscoring his intentions for the 20-year-old.

Hjulmand stated, “I have some clear agreements with the club. He [Hojlund] should preferably get some minutes so that we can see that he’s there. He lacks game time, that’s clear, but he’s going to play a role [for Denmark], so we’ll have to see what he can do.”

Looking ahead, Denmark is poised to tackle crucial Euro 2024 qualifiers against San Marino and Finland in the upcoming month.

Hojlund’s inclusion in the national team setup is joined by fellow Manchester United player Christian Eriksen, along with Tottenham’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who has stirred speculation about a potential move to Old Trafford.

Furthermore, the roster of Premier League luminaries summoned by Denmark encompasses Crystal Palace’s Joachim Andersen and a trio from Brentford—Christian Norgaard, Mathias Jensen, and Mikkel Damsgaard.
