Manchester United are interested in signing Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet after announcing reaching an agreement with Brazilian midfielder Fred Rodrigues.
United have now made an approach for the 22-year-old left-footed centre-back who has a release clause of £30.7m (€35m) and Jose Mourinho is said to be keen on bringing him to Old Trafford.
United have also been linked with a move for Toby Alderweirled but the Lenglet offer may now see them cool their interest.
Mourinho wants to bolster his defence in a bid to catch Manchester City next season.
He is already set to add Fred to his midfield while young right back Diogo Dalot is set to undergo a medical.
