A report claims that Galatasaray centre-back Ozan Kabak is a January transfer target for Manchester United after being watched up close in recent weeks.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho could reportedly turn to Galatasaray defender Ozan Kabak in his search for a new centre-back.

The Red Devils are expected to strengthen the heart of their backline when the transfer window reopens in three weeks' time, having shipped 25 Premier League goals this term - the sixth-worst record in the division.

According to The Sun, Kabak has emerged as a target for Mourinho after impressing for Gala with his powerful presence in the air.

United scouts are said to have been sent to watch the 18-year-old, who is rumoured to be valued in the region of £20m.

Arsenal have also been tipped to make a move for the Turkey age-grade international, potentially driving up that asking price, although a separate report suggests that he could be snapped up for £7m due to a release clause in his contract.
