Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Hoffenheim midfielder Christoph Baumgartner.

The 21-year-old has been hailed as one of Austria's brightest talents in years and his impressive performances in the Bundesliga have attracted a great deal of attention from several top clubs across Europe.

Baumgartner only made his senior debut for the German side in May 2019, however The Sun reports that United have been tracking the midfielder closely with a view to bringing him to Old Trafford in the summer.

The youngster has a contract which expires in June 2023 and his current price tag is believed to be around £16m, although that figure is expected to rise.

Hoffenheim have a history of getting good value for money on player sales such as the £29m they received for Liverpool's Roberto Firmino as well as £40m from Newcastle United for Joelinton.

Baumgartner has made 25 appearances in all competitions for the German club this season, scoring five goals and providing seven assists.
