Manchester United have been linked with a move for 18-year old Arnand Traoré, who plays for Serie A side Atalanta.
He is not regarded as an alternative to Jadon Sancho but rather as an investment for the future.
Last season, Traoré when he came off the bench to become the youngest ever Serie A scorer, netting against Udinese at the age of 17 years and 109 days.
He travelled with the Atalanta squad to Lisbon for their Champions League quarter-final with PSG but did not make it on to the pitch in the end.
Despite his inexperience at first-team level, Traoré who comes from the Ivory Coast will not come cheap. Atalanta will want to get maximum value for one of their brightest prospects who is also being tracked by Arsenal, Juventus, and AC Milan.
There have previously been suggestions that Traoré could spent next season on loan at Parma.
