Torino's attacking midfielder Alen Stevanovic is being watched by Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says the 21-year-old was once likened to Cristiano Ronaldo by Arsenal scouts when they watched him developing at Inter Milan.

However, he drifted out of contention and joined Torino. They sent him on loan to Toronto and he has returned to Italy this season in outstanding form.

Although born in Switzerland, he was raised by relations in Serbia and is expected to be called up to their national team soon.

Torino are willing to sell for around £6million and that has got United and their Premier League rivals, with all of the top six represented at recent games, ready to bid.
