Paul Scholes: 'Manchester United should move for Wesley Fofana'

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes wants the Red Devils to make a move for Leicester City's Wesley Fofana.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has urged the Red Devils to make a move for Leicester City's Wesley Fofana during the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old joined Leicester from Saint-Etienne in the summer and has been in impressive form for the Foxes this season, making 19 appearances in all competitions.

Scholes has claimed that the centre-back "has the potential to be anything he wants to be" and is keen for his former club to target a mid-season move for the Frenchman.

"If I was Ole and could sign a defender this month, I'd go for Wesley Fofana at Leicester. He's only 20, but he has been outstanding and he has the potential to be anything he wants to be," Scholes told ESPN.

Fofana, who penned a five-year deal at the King Power Stadium upon his arrival, featured on 30 occasions for Saint-Etienne's first team before joining the Foxes.

United recently completed a deal for Atalanta BC attacker Amad Diallo, and the teenager trained alongside his teammates for the first time on Thursday ahead of this weekend's clash with Liverpool.
