Manchester - Manchester United have reportedly short-listed Ajax Amsterdam forward Kasper Dolberg as the club's next marquee signing for the end of the season.

The 19-year-old Dolberg, who is in his first season with the Eredivisie giants, has scored 11 goals in 28 appearances this term, and his impressive displays have drawn comparisons to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

At 1.87 with an incredible first-touch, acceleration and close control, the teenage Denmark international is said to be attracting the interest of a number of European clubs - but as reported via the Manchester Evening News, United are front-runners for his signature.

The British publication stated that the former Silkeborg IF forward and Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann are Mourinho's first targets as he plans to recreate the success under Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Dolberg made his senior Denmark debut in a 4-1 victory over Kazakhstan in November last year.

Meanwhile United seem to be set to sell Memphis Depay to Lyon after the two clubs agreed a fee for the Dutchman who is to undergo a medical on Thursday.
