Manchester United are hot on the trail of Bayer Leverkusen defender Omer Toprak, Kicker has revealed.
The Red Devils have experienced all sorts of problems in defence this season, with both Daley Blind and Michael Carrick forced to deputize at centre-back.
As a result, manager Louis van Gaal is determined to recruit a couple of high-quality stoppers in the summer transfer window and the latest reports suggest that Bayer Leverkusen star Omer Toprak is high on their wish list.
According to Kicker, Manchester United scouts have been regular at Bay Arena this season and everything suggests the Red Devils will attempt to lure the Turkish defender to Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign.
Omer Toprak, who has amassed 124 Bundesliga appearances for Bayer Leverkusen since joining from Freiburg, has a deal until June 2018 at Bay Arena, meaning that die Werkself would be forced to consider all serious offers next summer.
