Transfer news LIVE: Man Utd scout Sporting starlet, Arsenal in Kokcu battle, Mount latest

Manchester United sent scouts to run the rule over Gonzalo Inacio during Sporting Lisbon's match last night, according to reports in Portugal.

The 22-year-old has emerged as a potential target for Erik ten Hag as he looks to strengthen his backline, with Harry Maguire potentially making way.

Inacio is also reportedly wanted by Liverpool, but O Jogo report United have sent their recruitment experts to assess the centre-back.
