Manchester United are one of four Premier League clubs to have “shown interest” in signing Red Bull Salzburg attacking midfielder Oscar Gloukh

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.

Fans on Twitter believe Gloukh is a very promising young player who has a bright future in the game:

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.
