Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will reportedly look to add Tottenham full back Kyle Walker to his squad this summer.
It is reported by The Mirror that Van Gaal has outlined the acquisition of a new right-back as a priority, and Walker is among the targets identified by the Dutchman.
The 24-year-old has been the first choice right back for the Spurs for the past three seasons in the Premier League and has made over 111 appearances, scoring three goals.
With his electric pace, high work rate and an instinct for getting forward it's hardly surprising that the England international is being courted by Champions League sides.
The Red Devils have also been linked with Southampton's Nathaniel Clyne and Everton's Seamus Coleman in recent weeks as Van Gaal looks to strengthen at the back after the change of formation has seen Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young adopt more defensive roles.

It has been reported that Young will be awarded a new contract following his performances this season, but Van Gaal is in clear need of a player more recognised for player on the right-side of defence.
Walker underwent lower abdominal surgery in September after he was ruled out of England's World Cup campaign, and after nearly nine months out, he returned against Besiktas in December's Europa League clash.
Is Kyle Walker the player Manchester United should be chasing?
