Christos Tzolis TEAMtalk

Manchester United are being tipped to bring in another young talent in the form of Greece striker Christos Tzolis.

The 19-year-old, who has already won four caps for his country, is attracting interest from across Europe.

And according to Sportime in Greece (as cited by Sport Witness), United are in the running for his signature.

The Red Devils recruited young attackers Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo last summer, with the latter only arriving last month.

There is a clear recruitment drive at United to try at and sign Europe’s top young talent, and Tzolis also fits the bill.

The PAOK Salonika star can play as a central attacker or left-winger and is a regular for his club side.

Sportime claims that Tzolis has ‘Europe at his feet’, with Borussia Dortmund already having ‘checked him repeatedly’. The German outfit are said to ‘highly appreciate his abilities’.

But Dortmund have major rivals in the shape of United, who have been extenstively scouting the youngster.

PAOK are reportedly ‘waiting for the biggest offer ever submitted’ for one of their top assets.

A previous article from Sportime stated that the Greek side value Tzolis at €20m. That could be hopeful, however, given the current market.

“It’s about playing with a smile on my face and enjoying my football and getting back to the old Jesse.” Read more…
