Manchester United are keeping tabs on Ludogorets Razgrad frontman Roman Bezjak, and intend to scout him during his side’s Europa League clash with Valencia tonight.
According to Italian publication TuttoMercato, citing Spanish source Plaza Deportiva, David Moyes is keen on scouting the 25-year-old Bulgarian, who has an impressive goalscoring record this season in all competitions.
Bezjak, though a relatively unknown entity in European football, has produced a number of eye-catching performances in his team’s surprising surge towards the latter stages of the Europa League, and currently boasts 17 goals in 34 matches for Razgrad this term.
Deportiva reports that Moyes has previously scouted the striker when he played Lazio early on this year, but is prepared to send scouts to gather further reports when he takes to the field against Valencia. The United boss is thought to have a handsome transfer kitty to spend on new faces this summer, and could perhaps be eyeing Bezjak as a potential option to bolster his attack.
With rumours that Robin van Persie could be on his way out of Old Trafford in the summer United might find themselves in the market for a new striker. However, given Bezjak’s lack of pedigree at the highest level it’s highly doubtful he will be considered a first-choice replacement.
