Manchester United are keeping tabs on FC Twente's highly rated winger Bilal Ould-Chikh after he impressed at the recent Under-17 European Championships in Bulgaria.
According to the Sunday People, Red Devils scouts will continue to monitor the talented teenager's development at De Grolsch Veste after he made his senior debut for Alfred Schreuder's side at the tender age of 16 in May last year.
Dubbed as 'the new Arjen Robben' in his native Holland, Ould-Chikh has been tipped for a very bright future in the game, and has attracted admiring glances from a host of other top European suitors.
AC Milan, Inter Milan and Fiorentina have all been credited with an interest in acquiring the player's signature, but it's Manchester United that are probably deemed the favourites to sign him.
The presence of Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford will not be lost on the fleet-footed forward, and it's easy to see why he'd be keen to link up with the veteran Dutch coach in the Premier League.
Ould-Chikh's current contract with the Eredivisie outfit is set to expire in 14 months time, meaning Manchester United would be able to sign him on a Bosman free transfer at the end of next season.
However, Twente will be determined to get the wide-man to pen an extension in order to avoid losing one of their brightest young talents for absolutely nothing.
