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.

Real Madrid's Martin Odegaard 'completes Arsenal medical'

Real Madrid playmaker Martin Odegaard has reportedly completed his medical at Arsenal ahead of a loan move to the Emirates Stadium.

The Norway international was given the green light to head out on loan after struggling for game time under Zinedine Zidane, and Arsenal appear to have won the race for his signature.

Odegaard was linked with a temporary switch back to Real Sociedad in the January transfer window, but Sky Sports News now reports that he has completed a medical at Arsenal ahead of a six-month loan deal.

It is understood that the deal does not include an option to buy as Real Madrid chiefs are convinced that he will eventually come good in the Spanish capital.

The 22-year-old's arrival in North London will supposedly be announced within the next 24 hours, with Arsenal due to take on Southampton in the Premier League on Tuesday evening.

The Gunners have been on the lookout for a new creative player after terminating the contract of Mesut Ozil - who has now joined Fenerbahce - and Mikel Arteta's side are supposedly still interested in a summer deal for Norwich City's Emiliano Buendia.
