Manchester United are continuing to monitor Enzo Perez as they consider a move for the Benfica midfielder during the summer transfer window.

TalkSPORT reports how the Argentina international is under contract at Estadio da Luz until 2018 and is currently valued at around £16million.

Red Devils scouts have watched the 28-year-old on numerous occasions already this season, and will run the rule over the South American star again in the Europa League final when Jorge Jesus's side take on Sevilla in Italy on Wednesday.

Midfield reinforcements are understood to be a main priority at Old Trafford this summer, and Perez has come to the fore once again after playing an integral role in Benfica's Primeira Liga title triumph this season.

Despite the fact Manchester United are yet to confirm a permanent successor to David Moyes, the Premier League club appear to be pressing ahead with prospective transfer targets.

However, Manchester United could face competition for Perez's signature with Juventus also believed to be monitoring the player's situation in Portugal.

The Argentine has enjoyed a productive three-year spell in Lisbon after signing from Estudiantes in 2011, but could depart in the summer to join a higher profile European league.
