Manchester United are eyeing a potential bid for PSV Eindhoven full-back Denzel Dumfries, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that Manchester United have been taking a look at the Netherlands international as a potential recruit.

The same article states that the Red Devils are ready to bid for the 23-year-old after being priced out of deals for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Paris Saint-Germain full-back Thomas Meunier.

According to the same story, PSV wing-back Dumfries would be a more attacking option at full-back than Wan-Bissaka and Meunier as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rebuild his squad.

Dumfries scored four goals and made six assists in 34 games in the Eredivisie last season to help PSV finish in second place behind champions Ajax.

The Manchester United target was part of the Dutch side that beat England in extra-time in the Uefa Nations League semi-final in Portugal earlier this month.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville was working as a commentator during the Uefa Nations League clash and expressed his concerns about Dumfries’ defensive capabilities.

Manchester United are looking to improve their options at right-back after Ecuador international Antonio Valencia announced his departure earlier this year.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013.
