The Israeli only made the €7m move to Austria from Maccabi Tel Aviv in January but, after some impressive displays at the European Under 21 Championships, the Red Devils are taking a keen interest in him.
His ceiling is absolutely massive. Two-footed prodigy.

He’s just like Coutinho.

He’s a real talent

Gloukh and Arda Guller would be great signings

Love our scouts ability to identify talent after it’s moved to another club

United will have plenty of rivals for Gloukh’s signature
Manchester City, Arsenal and Tottenham are also said to be keeping tabs on the 19-year-old, while Barcelona, Villarreal, Monaco, AC Milan and Salzburg’s sister club RB Leipzig are in the mix too.
Gloukh’s performances for Israel’s Under 21s in recent weeks have been eye-catching. He has provided two assists in four matches with his country reaching the semi-finals of the European Championships.
Supporters will be able to see him in action again when Israel take on England tonight.
Signing a no.10 may not be a priority for Erik ten Hag
While United have been linked with another playmaker, Atlanta United’s Thiago Almada, in recent days, it’s not an area of the pitch that the Red Devils need to strengthen.
Manager Erik ten Hag will be more focused on recruiting a new goalkeeper and striker, before considering a move for someone like Gloukh, despite the teenager’s undoubted talent.
