Man United reportedly appears keen on signing Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel, according to Italian media reports.
Andre Onana, the starting goalie for the Red Devils, is now overseas on international duty for Cameroon in the AFCON.
Erik Ten Hag does not seem to be impressed with Altay Bayindir, a fellow summer acquisition who will fill In for Onana in the former Inter Milan goalie’s absence, so United may be without a goalkeeper for as long as a month.
Provedel, who grabbed attention earlier this season when he helped Lazio tie the score in the Champions League in the last minute, is reportedly a target for United, according to Sport Quotidano.
Manchester United is reportedly truly interested in signing the goaltender, so the Italian squad should keep an eye out for them, according to Quotidiano Sportivo.
Rumour has it that Lazio could be able to stave off interest from Premier League clubs with a new deal offering a greater salary.
It’s probable that Provedel’s group included United in the talks to persuade Lazio to offer a larger contract.
The team may have made a mistake in signing a goalkeeper this month, considering that both André Onana and Altay Bayındır signed in the summer.
If Cameroon is eliminated early from the AFCON, Onana might return shortly, then it makes no sense to sign a custodian when other positions should receive more focus in the transfer window.
In the event that Casemiro departs the team, United is already looking to add a young defender, a midfielder, and a striker.
