Manchester United have reportedly joined Arsenal in the race to sign Portugal international defender Nelson Semedo, according to O Jogo (via the Daily Star).

The Premier League side, who currently sit seventh in the English top-flight standings and face Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, are understood to have been scouting the highly-rated Benfica right-back in recent months.

The 22-year-old, who made his international debut against Serbia back in October 2015, has scored one goal and provided one assist in 13 appearances in all competitions for the Liga NOS outfit so far this season.

The report suggests that Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho had United chiefs scout the Benfica star during their 2-0 win over Belenenses on Sunday, with fellow right-back Matteo Darmian tipped to leave the club after falling out of favour under the ‘Special One’.

Serie A giants Inter Milan have also been linked with Semedo’s services, who reportedly has a £40m release clause.
