Manchester United chief scout Martin Ferguson has reportedly been in Sweden to cast his eye over AIK Solna striker Teteh Bangura.
According to Expressen, Ferguson - brother of United boss Sir Alex - was in attendance for AIK's encounter against Elfsborg in order to make an assessment on Bangura.
However, when pressed for comment, Ferguson was reluctant to reveal whether or not he had been acting on behalf of United.
"I don't talk to the press," he told Expressen. "It's the manager who looks after it. I'm just here to see matches."
Bangura, a Sierra Leone international, has been attracting almost unprecedented interest in recent weeks, with previous reports claiming no fewer than 11 clubs have had representatives watch him in action.
And now, it would seem, United are one of sides monitoring the progress of the 21-year-old, who has scored 15 times in Sweden since his January move to AIK.
United, meanwhile, are also be said to be closing in on Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sniejder, with the Barclays Premier League champions alleged to have had a offer for his services accepted.
However, the Holland international would have to accept a wage-cut should he complete a switch to Old Trafford.
