Manchester United are interested in bringing Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca to Old Trafford this summer.

According to reports in Spain, United are said to be ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool in the battle to sign the 28-year-old.

United are in the market for a new striker with Robin van Persie looking set to leave and Radamel Falcao’s loan spell ending.

Colombian Bacca has scored 21 goals this season and it is thought United could land the player for around £15m.

United are also keeping tabs on defensive midfielder Rodrigo Dourado.

The club are said to have sent scouts to watch the Internacional player face Brasil de Pelotas last weekend.

Dourado has been likened to Barcelona's Sergio Busquets due to his positional awareness and ability on the ball.

Anderson, who joined the Brazilian side during the winter transfer window, will be able to fill him in on life at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Javier Hernandez could find himself making a new life in Russia next season with Dynamo Moscow interested in signing him.

The Mexican international is currently on loan at Real Madrid but has struggled to make an impression on Carlo Ancelotti.

According to Italian website Tutto Mercato Web, with no future at United on the cards, Hernandez could switch to Dynamo with the club said to have been in touch to discuss a deal.
