Manchester United are set to continue their summer investment in youth by trying to sign Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to reshape a squad that tailed off badly after an excellent start under the Norwegian last season.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected to complete his £50m move from Crystal Palace after Thursday’s medical.
United signed 21-year-old Daniel James from Swansea earlier this month.
It is understood Solskjaer is also keen on Longstaff, another 21-year-old, who impressed at St James’ Park after making his debut in December 2018, only to have his season curtailed by a knee injury.
In pursuing a policy of trying to sign younger players who can develop at Old Trafford, Solskjaer believes he is following a policy that proved successful under Sir Alex Ferguson, with the former striker himself an example after he arrived as a relatively unknown 23-year-old from Molde in 1996.
