United to raid Ajax for £10m attacking revelation?

Viktor Fischer

The Premier League champions have been linked with a move for Danish forward Viktor Fischer, who is growing of age in Amsterdam.

Manchester United are one of the Premier League clubs that are expected to be busiest in the January transfer window, with David Moyes’ men in need of reinforcements in a number of areas.

Although a left-back and central midfielder are thought to be the Old Trafford side’s priorities, they have been linked with one of Europe’s hottest young attacking prospects today.

Danish news source Ekstrabladet has stated that United are weighing up a move for Ajax starlet Viktor Fischer, who the Red Devils are believe to have had an eye on for some time.

The Premier League champions were heavily linked with the Danish wonderkid at the end of 2012, and it is believed that United are once more considering launching a £10 million bid for the Scandinavian.

Ajax is a breeding ground for future world beaters, and Fischer is one of the most promising of a new batch of young stars.

The 19-year-old has been a virtual ever-present this season, and also featured in Ajax’s Champions League campaign.

The teenager netted ten goals in 23 games last term for the Amsterdam Arena side on their path to the Eredivisie title, but has only found the back of the net three times this term.

He has also made his national debut for Denmark after representing various youth sides, and has six senior caps to his name.
