Manchester United 'monitoring Bayer Leverkusen's Edmond Tapsoba'

Manchester United are monitoring Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Edmond Tapsoba, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly keeping a close eye on the development of Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Edmond Tapsoba.

The 22-year-old joined Leverkusen from Vitoria Guimaraes in January 2020 and has made 51 appearances for the German side in all competitions, including 29 outings during the 2020-21 campaign.

According to The Express, the 20-time English champions have been scouting the defender after being alerted to his progress by 'a well-respected figure in Germany'.

The report claims that Man United received the tip-off last year and have since been following Tapsoba closely, while Liverpool are said to have explored the possibility of a January deal.

A number of other Premier League clubs are also believed to be interested in the centre-back, with Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers mentioned as possible suitors.

Tapsoba has played in all but two of Leverkusen's 23 Bundesliga matches this season.
