Manchester United are lining up a £25m offer to sign Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Guardian is reporting that Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is keen to bolster his options at left-back and wants to complete a deal to land the Fulham starlet in the new year.

The same story says that Mourinho is ready to let Luke Shaw leave Old Trafford in the January transfer window in order to make way for a move to sign Sessegnon.

The 17-year-old has scored four goals and made two assists in 22 Championship appearances this season and has been in top form for Fulham.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for reinforcements at left-back after Shaw failed to win over Mourinho at Old Trafford with his performances.

The Red Devils are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks as the January transfer window draws ever nearer.

Mourinho is likely to be keen to bolster his squad in the mid-season window as he looks for his side to try and claw their way back into the Premier League title race.
