Manchester United are reportedly contemplating an approach for Ajax striker Justin Kluivert, the son of legendary Dutch forward Patrick.

Ajax striker Justin Kluivert has reportedly emerged as a possible transfer target for Manchester United.

In recent weeks, United have been linked with a number of different attacking players as boss Jose Mourinho contemplates new additions in January and during the summer.

Gareth Bale, Willian and Christian Pulisic have all been mentioned but according to Yahoo Sport, Kluivert is also on the Premier League side's radar.

Kluivert - the son of legendary Dutch forward Patrick - has spent the last year in the first team at Ajax, with six goals being scored in 27 games in the Eredivisie.

However, the 18-year-old will have just one year remaining on his existing contract come the summer, and United are said to be considering the possibility of adding the youngster to their squad.

This season, Kluivert has scored four times in 13 league appearances, although three of his strikes came in one match with a hat-trick being netted against Roda JC in November.
