Man Utd enter Hakan Calhanoglu race

Calhanoglu on United radar

Premier League giants Manchester United are set to battle it out with Europe's best for Bayer Leverkusen star Hakan Calhanoglu.

The Turkey international has become one of Europe's most familiar names following his move from fellow German side Hamburger SV.

In spite of the rich vein of riches in United's midfield, manager Louis van Gaal is thought to have sent scouts to keep a close eye on the 21-year-old attacker.

German sports daily Bild now claims that the Red Devils will look to rival the likes of Arsenal and Juventus in the pursuit of the young playmaker.

Calhanoglu is known for his expert free-kick technique, and his play is often likened to Arsenal's Mesut Ozil.
