Luton Town are turning their attention to Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek having already snapped up Teden Mengi.

United are hoping to get a midfielder in today with Fiorentina ace Sofyan Amrabat seemingly the top target.

That has been the case for a while now and yet United still haven’t got a deal done for the Moroccan.

Maybe it will take another midfield exit to get that deal done, even after Fred’s move to Fenerbahce.

Donny van de Beek could be the key man – and a new suitor has emerged ahead of the transfer deadline.

Luton Town want Donny van de Beek

The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reports that Luton are looking into a late move to sign Van de Beek.

The Hatters have lost their first two games in the Premier League, falling to Brighton and Hove Albion and Chelsea.

Rob Edwards will be keen to make late additions to strengthen his Luton squad in the hope of staying up.

Van de Beek could be the man to inject some quality into the Luton midfield alongside the likes of Ross Barkley and Marvelous Nakamba.

The Dutchman clearly isn’t going to have a key role at United this season, even under his former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.

Whether it’s Luton or elsewhere, Van de Beek needs to move on and play regularly in order to try and get his career back on track.

Luton could sign another Manchester United player

The Hatters appear to love signing players with links to United.

First, it was Tahith Chong as the former United talent secured himself a move from Birmingham City to Kenilworth Road.

Luton then confirmed the arrival of United defender Teden Mengi on Thursday, with the 21-year-old securing a permanent exit from Old Trafford.

Now it’s Van de Beek on their wish list and Luton even had a look at free agent defender Axel Tuanzebe following his United release.

Maybe these ex-United players can help Luton beat the odds and stay up, but it will still be a long shot.
