Manchester United and Liverpool have both been checking Hoffenheim’s Brazilian star Roberto Firmino
Scouts from the Premier League rivals have been regular visitors to Germany to watch the highly-rated 22-year-old attacking midfielder, with Inter Milan also keen.
With United boss David Moyes ordering his scouts to assemble a comprehensive list of midfield targets, the faltering champions have also been checking out Turkish starlet Salih Ucan.
The 20-year-old Fenerbahce star, who has just broken into the Turkey senior side, is valued at around £7million. Turkish coach Muhsin Ertugral confirmed United’s interest.
“I have heard United are keeping tabs on Ucan,” he said. (Daily Mirror)
