Manchester United and Manchester City are both monitoring Hossein Zamani’s situation at Ajax ahead of a potential swoop for the wonderkid, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Ajax prospect is facing an uncertain future at the Dutch club – and that has put some of Europe’s biggest clubs on red alert this summer.

The same article states that Manchester United, Manchester City and AC Milan are all thought to be keeping tabs on the teenager as Zamani looks to seek a new challenge.

According to the same story, the two Premier League giants could also face competition from domestic rivals Everton and Leicester, as well as Marseille and Atalanta.

Manchester United are in the market to sign a new striker this summer given the increasing uncertainty surrounding Romelu Lukaku’s future at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have also released Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera and Ecuadorian full-back Antonio Valencia to leave voids to fill in the Man United team.

Manchester United signed Welsh midfielder Daniel James in a £15m deal from Championship side Swansea City last month before Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka arrived in a £50m deal last weekend.

The Red Devils are contending with speculation surrounding both Lukaku and Paul Pogba this summer.
