Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign Sevilla central defender Jules Kounde, who was previously a target for Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola was interested in Kounde last summer, but City are reported to have seen a £50million bid rejected.

But if United want to nip and and snap up the 22-year-old they might have to match his £72m release fee.

The 22-year-old looks an exciting young talent after catching the eye in La Liga, with a number of top clubs now supposedly in for him.

While Harry Maguire is a shoe-in, Solskjaer has struggled to find consistency alongside the captain.

Manchester United have rotated Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe alongside Maguire at the heart of United’s defence.

Solskjaer’s side are also said to be eyeing a move for Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who could be available on a free transfer at the end of June.
