Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly back in the hunt for Dutch winger Steven Bergwijn who plays his club football for PSV Eindhoven FC of the Netherlands.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Red Devils want to sign the 22-year-old Dutch international attacker next summer.

Manchester United scouts have watched him in action in the colours of former Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven on numerous occasions this season.

He was a strong transfer target for Manchester United earlier this year but nothing happened during the summer transfer window which ended at the start of September, though it must be pointed out that the Premier League window closed in the second week of August.

Steve Bergwijn has scored three goals and assisted seven others for PSV Eindhoven in 17 games in all competitions this season including a return of three goals and seven assists in 10 league outings this term.

The Dutch international is said to be interested in a move to the Premier League with Manchester United but the Red Devils will have to secure Champions League football for that to happen.

Champions League football might be a tough task for Manchester United this season especially through the league route with the club nine points off the pace.
