Manchester United have reportedly joined a host of other European heavyweights in the queue for highly rated midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

The 21-year is widely regarded as one of the best young prospects on the European football scene.

According to the report from renowned English news outlet Daily Mail, the Red Devils will have to fight off competition from the Premier League.

English heavyweights such as Manchester City and Chelsea are also interested in the French international midfielder.

Tanguy Ndombele plays his club football in France for Ligue 1 giants Olympique Lyon.

The box-to-box midfielder came into prominence on Matchday 1 of the Champions League against Premier League champions Manchester City.

Ndombele impressed a great deal as Lyon stunned the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium.

Lyon defeated Manchester City 2-1 to begin their group stage campaign with a win.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was able to watch the £55m-rated player from close quarters.

His outing against the Premier League title holders prompted Chelsea and Manchester City to send scouts to the Matchday 2 game between Lyon and Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim.

Tanguy Ndombele made his move permanent in the summer in a £7m deal from Stade Amiens after spending last season on a loan deal from the same aforementioned club.
