Manchester United are interested in Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, according to a report in England.

ESPN FC is reporting that Manchester United are interested in Milinkovic-Savic, who has been impressing in the Lazio team over the past few months.

The same article states that Ivory Coast international Seri is another potential candidate to bolster Jose Mourinho’s midfield options ahead of the 2018-19 season.

According to the same story, Manchester United’s chief scout Marcel Bout has watched the Nice star, who was linked with a move to FC Barcelona last summer.

Seri has scored one goal and has made four assists in 24 appearances in the Ligue 1 in the 2017-18 season so far.

The Ivorian star has continued to be linked with La Liga leaders FC Barcelona, while Manchester United’s Premier League rivals Arsenal are also rumoured to be interested.

Milinkovic-Savic has netted nine times and has two seven assists in 27 appearances in Serie A in the current campaign.

Manchester United are set to lose Michael Carrick to retirement at the end of the season, while the Red Devils are facing a battle to keep Marouane Fellaini at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils will face Manchester City in the derby on Saturday.
