Manchester United are among the teams keeping a close eye on Galatasaray starlet Ozan Kabak ahead of the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is claiming that the Red Devils are potentially interested in a bid to try and sign the 18-year-old, who has also apparently attracted interest from Arsenal.

The central defender has made 13 appearances in all competitions for Galatasaray so far this season, and the same story claims that Jose Mourinho is likely to want to bolster his defensive options in January.

According to the same report, Galatasaray are likely to want a fee in the region of £20m to sell the young defender.

As well as the reported interest from Arsenal, the same article claims that the likes of AS Roma and Inter Milan are also interested in signing the teenager.

However, the same story goes on to claim that the Turkish club are keen to extend Kabak’s contract and insert a buyout clause of at least £30m.

Manchester United’s defensive woes have been well-documented this season and it is no surprise to see the Red Devils be linked with some reinforcements at the back.

The Red Devils have conceded 25 goals in the Premier League so far this season, which is more than any other team in the top half of the table.
