Manchester United Coach Erik ten Hag is interested in signing Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans this summer, MySportDab reports.
The Red Devils have so far failed to make any signings so far in the current transfer window.
However, Ten Hag is keen to improve his midfield options for next season and already has a shortlist.
According to The Times, Tielemans is on that shortlist and Manchester United are now closely monitoring his situation at Leicester City.
The 25-year-old will now enter the final year of his Leicester contract, and remains linked with Arsenal and Tottenham.
But, Tottenham have already signed Yves Bissouma from Brighton, and are now focused on strengthening their attack.
This could allow United to make their move, as they continue talks with Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong.

De Jong is edging closer to joining the Red Devils in a deal close to £70m including performance based add ons.
Tielemans joined Leicester in 2019 and has spent three-and-a-half years at the club.
He has played 157 matches for the Foxes, and scored the 2021 FA Cup winning goal.
The midfielder is also likely to be a key part of Belgium’s squad at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
However, United are close to signing a new left back from Feyenoord for £13m.
They also want Christian Eriksen as a free agent but he is yet to make a decision on his future.
