Man Utd locked in talks for Atalanta winger Amad Traore

Manchester United are closing on a deal for Atalanta winger Amad Traore.

The Manchester Evening News says Traore is one of the players they're looking at bringing to Old Trafford before transfer deadline day.

It's claimed the Premier League giants are locked in talks with Atalanta over a deal for the Ivorian-born Italian citizen.

United are said to have swooped for Traore this summer due to imminent changes from the Premier League regarding the signing of foreign players aged 18-21 following Brexit.

It's claimed Traore will command a hefty fee, despite only having played 30 minutes of first-team football for the Gli Orobici.

Manchester United have had a very quiet transfer window by their standards, so far only signing one new player in Donny van de Beek from Ajax.
