English Premier League giants Manchester United are considering a summer move for one of the best young players in French football.

Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar is undoubtedly one of the best young players in France and he has emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have turned their attention to Houssem Aouar ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils have already strengthened their midfield with the signing of Bruno Fernandes last month and the Premier League giants are expected to sign at least one midfielder in the summer.

Bruno Fernandes has signed for the Red Devils from Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon for an initial fee worth £47m plus bonuses and add-ons that could take the whole transfer to the £68m mark.

He made his debut for his new team during the last game at home to fellow Champions League contender Wolverhampton Wanderers which ended in a goalless draw.

That result left Manchester United six points adrift of West London giants Chelsea in fourth spot.

Apart from Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United also signed striker Odion Ighalo in the last transfer window. The Nigerian international has moved to Old Trafford on loan from Chinese giants Shanghai Shenshua.

Unlike Bruno Fernandes who’s a certainty for the starting XI ahead of Chelsea game on Monday evening in the Premier League, Ighalo is not a certain starter though Solskjaer confirmed that he’ll be with the squad.

Manchester United target Houssem Aouar has scored eight goals plus six assists in 31 appearances in the colours of Lyon.

The French giants are in the fight for Champions League qualification from the top flight in France and Houssem Aouar is a big part of the team.

Lyon will also face Italian champions Juventus in the last 16 of the competition this season.
