Sir Alex Ferguson could turn to Udinese midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah as the Manchester United boss looks to strengthen his central midfield, according to talkSPORT.

The Old Trafford manager is looking to add to his squad over the summer and a midfielder has become a priority for the Manchester club.

Asamoah is highly-rated by Udinese and has impressed this season will a number of commanding performances from his central midfield position. The Ghanaian international has been monitored by Europe's top clubs for many seasons but United may feel the time is right this summer to make their move.

The 23-year-old won Africa's Most Promising Player award in 2010 but his Serie A club have him under contract until 2015. That could mean United will be forced to pay a higher fee, with a £10m bid thought to be enough to tempt Udinese.

The Red Devils have been linked with a number of Europe's most coveted youngsters as the season draws to a close. A deal for Borussia Dortmund's Shinji Kagawa is thought to be close, as the Japanese midfielder only has one year left on his contract with the German club.

Udinese have performed well in this year's Serie A, and currently sit third in the table behind AC Milan and Juventus. A key part of their success have the performances of Asamoah, who has cemented his position in the Italian club's midfield.

With United short of options in midfield and keen to strengthen, Asamoah could be on his way to Old Trafford this summer.
