Manchester United are being linked with Molde wing-back Vegard Forren.

The Daily Express says United are monitoring the progress of Vegard Forren ahead of the January transfer window.

The Norwegian defender who currently plays for Molde, is being lined up as a target for United as the club seeks to shore up their defence.

United will face stiff competition for Forren's signature as Everton and Fulham are also in the running.
