​Man Utd and Arsenal battle for Parma midfielder Kulusevski

Manchester United and Arsenal are being linked with a move for Parma midfielder Dejan Kulusevski.

The 19-year-old is already emerging as an excellent midfielder in Serie A since leaving Atalanta on loan in the summer.

The Swedish star is one of the midfielders that United and Arsenal believe could add depth to their respective squads, per The Sun.

Kulusevski has five assists and two goals this season, while he has also impressed with his work rate in midfield.

A January transfer is unlikely, given he is on loan, but a summer move for around £40 million from Atalanta could be a possibility.

When he was recently asked by reporters about his future, Kulusevski said: "I'm fine at Parma, I'm happy to be here, I've found the perfect club.

"The market? I'm playing well, so it's normal to write about other clubs, but I don't think about (a January move) because I have an annual deal with Parma."
