Manchester United have met with the father of Romeo Lavia this month to discuss a potential move.
Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri is reporting the Southampton star is said to be a target for the Red Devils and Arsenal in the summer.
Teenager Lavia, 19, only joined the Saints from Man City last summer - but has been one of the club's bright sparks this season.
City have an option to buy the midfielder for £40million in 2024, but that clause hasn't kicked in yet.
Both United and the Gunners are monitoring the situation - with the idea of making a move when the transfer window reopens.
