Manchester United attacker Andreas Pereira is reportedly on the verge of joining Serie A side Lazio.



The 24-year-old made 40 appearances for the Red Devils last term, but struggled for regular gametime during the backend of the season.

He has not played any part for the club this term and Il Messaggero claims that he is on his way to Lazio on a season-long loan.

It is added that the Serie A outfit have also agreed to sign him permanently next summer for a fee of around £9.1m.

Pereira has failed to live upto his potential since graduating through the youth system and he is currently deemed surplus to requirements.

Aside from Pereira, Jesse Lingard is another offensive player, who could head through the exit door before the transfer deadline.

The England international has barely played in the league since the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes and he is free to leave.

Tottenham Hotspur have recently been linked with a surprise move for Lingard. They are managed by ex-United boss Jose Mourinho.
