According to reports, Manchester United are interested in signing Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sorloth.

The 24-year-old is currently on loan at Trabzonspor, and made just 20 appearances for Palace since joining in 2018, scoring once.

But the player has been in fine form for Trabzonspor, scoring 19 times in 26 Super Lig appearances.

Report from Turkish outlet Fanatak claim United are one of several suitors for Sorloth and are keen to make a move for him in the next transfer window.

Palace paid a reported £9million for Sorloth, and will look to make a profit from the player’s sale.

The likes of AC MIlan, Inter Milan, Napoli and German giants Bayern Munich, as well as Trabzonspor, are all interested in him.

The Turkish side can make Sorloth’s move permanent for just £5.35m at the end of the current campaign and will likely do so.
