Velez Sarsfield attacker Thiago Almada emerges as a transfer target for Manchester United, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly keen on bringing Velez Sarsfield attacker Thiago Almada to Old Trafford.

The 19-year-old has scored 12 times and registered four assists in 50 appearances for his current club, and a number of European teams are believed to be interested in his services.

Manchester City, Valencia and Ajax are thought to be admirers, but according to Tuttomercatoweb, United are also eyeing a swoop for the teenager in 2021.

Almada, who came through the youth system at Velez, has scored once in seven appearances for Argentina's Under-20 side.

The versatile attacker still has two and a half years left to run on his contract, though, placing El Fortin in a strong position when it comes to potential negotiations.

United signed Facundo Pellistri from Penarol over the summer, while fellow youngster Amad Diallo is due to arrive at Old Trafford from Atalanta BC in January.
