The Daily Mail claim Riyad Mahrez, Sadio Mane, Felipe Anderson and Anwar El Ghazi are in Louis van Gaal’s sights.

Manchester United are reportedly keen to add a new attacking midfielder to their squad in January, with The Daily Mail claiming that the Red Devils are weighing up moves for wing quartet Riyad Mahrez, Sadio Mane, Felipe Anderson and Anwar El Ghazi.

The Red Devils have been defensively sound this season but are lacking real inspiration in the final third.

With Memphis Depay failing to live up to his burgeoning reputation and Wayne Rooney not firing on all cylinders, there has been an over-reliance on Anthony Martial in attack.

The Daily Mail claim that Louis van Gaal’s side have a four-man shortlist of potential new faces come the January window.

Mahrez has been in fantastic form in 2015 and was a key reason that Leicester avoided relegation last term, with the Algerian starting this season in scintillating fashion also.

United have already been linked with a move for Southampton’s Mane in the past, with the skilful forward still one of the Saints’ most effective players.

Anderson has a growing reputation with Lazio and is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in Serie A currently.

El Ghazi has graduated from the Ajax youth academy and has displayed some real shows of skills and a clinical edge since making it into the Amsterdam outfit’s first team.
