Manchester United are leading the race to sign Dutch wonderkid Terence Kongolo from Southampton and Manchester City, according to the Daily Star.
The 20-year-old, who was born in Switzerland but has two caps with the Netherlands to his name, has made 20 league appearances for Feyenoord this term.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is said to be looking at raiding the Eredivisie once more having landed Daly Blind from Ajax over the summer, but he faces some serious competition in the form of rivals City and Ronald Koeman at Southampton.
Kongolo is a centre-back who can also play in midfield much like Blind, and could certainly help bolster Van Gaal's options at the back at Old Trafford.
The Daily Star say that Manchester United are currently in the lead to sign the highly-rated youngster, and will make their move at the end of the season.

However the Red Devils could be at a serious disadvantage when the race kicks off in earnest in the summer. Saints boss Koeman has a connection with Feyenoord having managed there before, while Kongolo's brother Rodney is currently part of Manchester City's Academy program.
Manchester United failed to land any new signings in the January window aside from Victor Valdes and Andy Kellett on loan from Bolton, while Manchester City snapped up Wilfried Bony from Swansea for £28 million.
