Manchester United are believed to be interested in acquiring the services of Genoa left-back Domenico Criscito.
The full-back has put in strong performances for the Italian club in recent times, and has been linked with moves away from his current employers.
Now The News of the World reports that the Red Devils are contemplating a £12.5 million bid for the defender.
It is thought that the 23-year-old would come in to the squad as a replacement for Patrice Evra, who wants to leave Old Trafford in favour of a move to Real Madrid, as Goal.com UK exclusively revealed in November.
Criscito has started all 16 Serie A games for Genoa this season.
