Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has been identified by Manchester United as the right replacement for Ander Herrera, according to reports in England.
With Herrera heading to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, signing a new midfielder is high on Solskjaer's agenda this summer.
And Partey is the man the Manchester United boss has targeted.
The Ghana international enjoyed a terrific campaign at the heart of the Spanish capital club’s engine room.
The Red Devils are eager to trigger the £43.5m release clause in Partey’s contract.
Partey made a total of 42 appearances in all competitions for Atletico Madrid in the just ended season.
