MANCHESTER UNITED have contacted Sevilla for Clement Lenglet, according to reports.
The centre-back is regarded as one of the best young defenders in Europe and United are keen to bag him this summer, say L’Equipe.
United had a proper look at the 22-year-old Frenchman when he starred for the La Liga outfit as they beat Jose Mourinho’s side in the Champions League knockout stages.
Despite conceding just one more league goal than Manchester City, Mourinho wants another central defender at Old Trafford next season.
The United chief already has Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo as central defensive options.
However, Mourinho still wants another commanding defender comfortable on the ball to add to his ranks.
The Reds have already made progress on their summer shopping with the potential arrivals of midfielder Fred and Porto defender Diogo Dalot.
Fred has completed his medical and is expected to pen a five-year deal before returning to the Brazilian World Cup squad.
Dalot is scheduled to have a medical later this week ahead of his £17.4m switch from Portugal.
