Manchester United are reportedly interested in securing the services of Sevilla left-back, Clement Lenglet.
The 22-year-old Clement Lenglet is also on many clubs’ radar which includes Barcelona, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Lenglet who can comfortably play at the centre of the defence line is set to create a transfer tug-of-war between Manchester United and Manchester City and Liverpool.
He is rated £28m by the Spanish club and given the inflated nature of the transfer window, that sum is cut price.
Mourinho is reportedly focused on improving his defence line according to The Mirror as his impressive duo of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia are getting old.
Lenglet joined Sevilla from Nancy.
Manchester city are also monitoring United’s youngster Marcos Rashford. They’re also reportedly monitoring Alexis Sanchez situation at Arsenal.
The Chilean forward was in action for Arsenal yesterday and he might be leaving the club on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.
