According to Corriere Torino, Maurizio Sarri and co. have turned their attention to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, now at Crystal Palace and highly sought after by Manchester United.

The right-back is rated as boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's top target but if Palace deems United's third offer is unacceptable the Manchester outfit may end their interest.

The 19-year-old full-back, adjudicated the EFL Young Player of the Year last season, is wanted by several clubs in the Premier League ahead of next season.

The Red Devils have already had one offer reportedly turned down for the England U21 worldwide, and the €50m+ price tag will be the problem for anyone going forward.

The right-back position has been a problem area for United, who relied on Ashley Young for the majority of the previous campaign.

The Red Devils' search for a new right-back has taken them all across Europe, with a number of names suggested as transfer targets. Crystal Palace had deemed the offer for their prized asset unrealistic and derogatory and had told Manchester United to restructure their offer.

The 21-year-old became a starter for Crystal Palace last season, impressing during his breakout campaign, and is now at the 2019 UEFA European U21 Championship with England. This would make Wan-Bissaka the most expensive specialist full-back in the world, with the transfer fee set to eclipse the €57.5 million Manchester City paid AS Monaco for Benjamin Mendy.
