Scouting For Moyes: 3 Potential Replacements For Robin van Persie

Robin Van Persie has suffered yet another injury which will keep him out of action for another month. The former Arsenal man’s future has been put into question during recent times with rumors linking Van Persie with Spanish giants Barcelona. As we near the January window, let’s look at three possible strikers that Moyes can look into, should the Dutch International leave them.

Jay Rodriguez

It may seem unlikely, but as Manchester United are currently sitting in 9th place, they must lower their expectations, as if they are not competing at the top of the table, they aren’t going to attract top of the table players. Rodriguez has played well for Southampton this season, and has been linked with the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal, but United could step in with a bid in January. However, there is no guarantee that he will want to leave Southampton, as they have been a revelation under Mauricio Pochettino, and he has been a big part of their attack, meaning that he may want to stay and see exactly what the Saints can achieve this season.
