Manchester United identify Leicester City's Harvey Barnes as an alternative to Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, according to a report.

Leicester City attacker Harvey Barnes has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Manchester United.

The 22-year-old has been in impressive form for Brendan Rodgers's side during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring five times in 15 appearances, including three Premier League goals from a wide position.

According to The Sun, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an admirer of the England international and has been keeping an eye on the attacker's form this season.

The report claims that the Red Devils remain keen on a move for Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, but a deal for him is still largely dependent on BVB reducing their asking price.

Leicester allegedly have no intention of selling Barnes in January and have placed a £60m valuation on his shoulders in the hope of shutting down interest from the 20-time English champions.

The Englishman has scored 13 times and contributed 12 assists in 79 appearances for the Foxes.
