Manchester United and Arsenal have been encouraged in their pursuit of Freiburg youngster Matthais Ginter.

The Sunday Express says Ginter could be available for approximately £7m in the summer after telling Freiburg that he has ambitions to move to a bigger club.

United have a week off from Premier League action and reports suggest David Moyes travelled to Germany to watch Ginter in action, after making a similar trip to look at Bayern Munich's Toni Kroos earlier in the season.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Ginter in the summer, only to be told that Freiburg weren't interested in selling.
