Manchester United are reportedly keen on sealing the £10m signing of Japan international Yoshinori Muto in January.

The 13-time Premier League champions, who face defending champions Chelsea this evening, have been scouting the FSV Mainz centre forward for the majority of this campaign.

The 23-year-old, who has 18 international caps for his country, has scored seven and assisted four goals in 17 league appearances for the Bundesliga outfit this season.

With uncertainty surrounding the future of Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford this New Year, the Dutchman wants a new prolific forward to help United revive their hopes of a late title bid after falling nine points behind leaders Leicester City in sixth spot.
