Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for PAOK Salonika youngster Christos Tzolis. The 19-year-old typically plays as a left-winger but he can also lead the line.
According to a report from Greek outlet Sportime, United are one of a number of clubs interested in Tzolis’ services.
The forward, who already has four caps for the Greek national team, has also been linked with Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United have been keen to sign young, foreign talent and Tzolis could be the next youngster to make the move to Old Trafford.
A previous report Sportime claims PAOK value Tzolis at around €20m (£17.5m) and he could follow the likes of Facundo Pellistri and Amad.

Both Pellistri and Amad have joined United this season from Penarol and Atalanta respectively.
The two teenagers are viewed as stars of the future and Pellistri has gone out on loan to La Liga side Alaves for the remainder of the season.
Their president, Alfonso Fernandez de Troconiz, believes it is an “ideal” move for the youngster.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Troconiz said: “We have full confidence in him and this is why we really fought to get him in on loan.

“We really think he can contribute a lot to us.
“We are fully aware he is a young player and he is beginning his European career and he will need to improve.
“But we think we are an ideal team for him to improve with because Alaves is a small club and I think this could favour his improvement.
“We are convinced that he is going to help us have a magnificent second part of the season.”
Amad, meanwhile, is expected to be involved with the first-team for the remainder of the season, having made the bench for United’s FA Cup clash with West Ham.
Asked about his first impressions of the youngster, Solskjaer said: “He can handle the ball, he’s enjoyed training, makes a difference in training, which is quite remarkable at his age.
“Some adjustment to settle into the hustle and bustle of the Premier League but I can’t see it’s too long until he’s in the squad.
“It [his debut] might be quicker than that [a few weeks], he’s definitely settled down, well, players have taken to him, he’s a good character, polite, smiley boy who works really hard.
