Manchester United have held talks with Galatasaray over defender and Arsenal target Ozan Kabak, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Manager José Mourinho is in the market for a new central defender, and Turkish outlet Aksam report that the Red Devils have held talks with Galatasaray club president Mustafa Cengiz.

With many targets likely to be on the Portuguese coach’s list, Mourinho has made contact early over the 18-year old, who has nailed down a first-team spot with Gala this season.

Aksam’s report claims that Galatasaray would demand €20million for the player, who is contracted to the club until 2020.

Arsenal are also said to be interested in making a move for Kabak, according to reports back in November, while Inter Milan have also been named a former interested party.
