Man Utd add Bayer Leverkusen defender Omer Toprak to shopping list

Manchester United have added Bayer Leverkusen defender Omer Toprak to their defensive shopping lists.

The Daily Star says United ran the rule over the £12m-rated centre-back in Leverkusen's Champions League win over Zenit last week.

Liverpool and Tottenham also had scouts at the game keeping an eye on the Germany-born Turkey international.

Finding an experienced and dominant centre-back is one of United boss Louis Van Gaal's top priorities after the summer departures of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.

Toprak's current deal with Leverkusen runs until 2018.
