Manchester United are keeping tabs on Dynamo Kiev left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko as they look to add to their options in the position.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed a growing reputation in Ukraine after breaking into the Dynamo first team at just 18-years-old and already being capped eight times by his country, with AC Milan also credited with an interest in his signature.
Left-back has emerged as a priority position for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to fill before the transfer window closes on 5 October.
Luke Shaw remains first choice, but there have been questions over his ability to stay fit and his form, while back-up Brandon Williams is naturally right-footed and not best suited for the position.
Mykolenko is an option for the Red Devils, but Alex Telles remains a more likely purchase, according to the Mirror.
Talks have been held with the Porto player and he is reportedly confident of securing a switch to Old Trafford.
A deal is likely to be done in the coming days, but the clubs continue to haggle over price.
Telles himself was not first choice, with United also looking at Sergio Reguilon, before he moved to Tottenham from Real Madrid last week.
United are also keen to add to their options at centre-back, although it is much less clear who they will be able to bring in before the window closes.
Monaco’s Benoit Badiashile and RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano have both been linked with the Red Devils, but a deal for neither is close and United would likely have to offload at least one centre-back before bringing one in.
The likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly are all still at the club but out of contention.
