Manchester United have identified Sevilla defender Jules Kounde as one of the top targets for the summer transfer window.



The Red Devils were right in the title race few weeks ago, but a run of six points from five games has cost them dearly.

They are currently seven points behind league leaders Manchester City and the gap could extend to 10, if the Cityzens win the game in hand.

According to Marca, the club may look to address their central defensive issues this summer with Solskjaer wanting a new partner for Harry Maguire.

Victor Lindelof has been inconsistent with his displays and he has received criticism from a section of the club's supporters.

Eric Bailly has impressed in stages, but his injury troubles have meant that he has never established himself over a long period.

Kounde has caught the eye of United scouts through his showing in Seville, but the club may have to pay at least £60m to sign him.
