Amad Traore is wanted by Manchester United (Getty Images)

Manchester United have made an approach to sign Atalanta winger Amad Traore, according to reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his attacking options and United have been prioritising a deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund before the end of the window.

However, Manchester Evening News report that United have also made a move for Traore and have already been in contact with Atalanta.

It’s reported that the 18-year-old has not been identified as an alternative to Sancho and both deals are being worked on separately.

Traore made the move to Atalanta’s academy in 2015 and was handed his senior debut last October in the 7-1 victory over Udinese.

The winger found the net after coming off the bench in that game and in doing so he became the first player born in 2002 to score a goal in Serie A.

Traore has made three appearances in Serie A, while last season he scored seven goals and registered 11 assists 24 appearances for the youth team.

In the 2018-19 campaign, Traore scored 18 goals and delivered 13 assists and his impressive performances paved the way for him to begin training with Atalanta’s senior squad.

‘He plays like Messi,’ Atalanta captain Papu Gomez said light-heartedly in a Q&A earlier this year.

‘To stop him we have to kick him.’
