Newly appointed Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal could bring as many as four Dutch internationals to Old Trafford this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, the Netherlands national team boss has instructed the Old Trafford club to compile scouting reports on certain members of his international set-up.

As well as Stefan de Vrij, Van Gaal wants United to take a closer look at Bruno Martins Indi of Feyenoord and his teammate, Daryl Janmaat, while Kevin Strootman is still a United target despite injury.

The report claims United may ultimately miss out on de Vrij as the right-back is close to completing a move to Lazio this summer.

But Strootman, who has been a long-term target for United, could still move to the Reds despite his long-term knee injury. He's reportedly recovering well and Van Gaal remains keen to complete the framework of a deal to bring him in.

Martins Indi, 22, has made 13 appearances for the Netherlands and could be brought in as United are set to lose Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand. The versatile defender has been linked with Arsenal as well.

Janmaat, another one-time Arsenal target, primarily plays right-back and the report notes that Van Gaal is a big fan of his too. United have Rafael at the position, but the new manager may want more competition.
