Soon to be Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag wants to sign Tyrell Malacia for the Premier League side, the UK Mirror reports.
Malacia, who plays for Feyenoord, has been described as a “pitbull” by fans in Holland.
Ten Hag failed to sign the 22-year-old left-back for Ajax last summer.
The Dutchman was unable to sign Malacia due to the huge rivalry with Feyenoord.
But a £20million offer will tempt Feyenoord into selling to United, after Ten Hag has identified the full-back positions as a problem area at his new club.
Malacia will challenge Luke Shaw for his place in United’s team. Ten Hag also wants a new right-back to replace Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
