Cape Town - Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly weighing up deals for Crystal Palace's Aaron Wan-Bissaka and West Ham's Declan Rice.

The Red Devils' chief has already made inroads into a deal to bring in 21-year-old Wales international wing-man, Daniel James, this off-season, with personal terms believed to have been agreed.

The Swansea starlet could wrap up the switch to Old Trafford after playing for his country in their Euro 2020 qualifiers next month and that will free up Solskjaer to pursue other targets.

The Norwegian is keen to rebuild the failing squad at United on the back of a disappointing sixth-placed finish last term, while also lowering its average age in the process.

Speculation is pointing towards a swoop on Crystal Palace for 21-year-old right-back, Wan-Bissaka, and a bid for West Ham's impressive 20-year-old England international midfield man, Rice.

Neither of the players' current clubs will want to lose them, but sizeable offers could prove too tempting while both Wan-Bissaka and Rice would no doubt relish the chance of a move to United.
