Manchester United are targeting 19-year-old Israel star Oscar Gloukh, with much competition for his signature.

According to The Guardian, Manchester United are amongst the many clubs ‘tracking’ Oscar Gloukh. The Israel midfielder will be on full display for interested clubs on Wednesday when he faces England in the semi-finals of the European Under-21 Championships.

Gloukh has been a name on the minds of many Football Manager players for years, and seems to now be making good on his evident potential.

The starlet secured a move to RB Salzburg in January from Maccabi Tel Aviv for €7million (£6m), however his performances since have alerted some of Europes elite to come calling.

Gloukh is so in demand as his representative confirmed, “There has been so much interest in Oscar for the last few months but we will have to wait to discuss any offers with his club,”

It seems inevitable he moves this summer with so much interest swirling around. But would he be a good fit for Erik ten Hag‘s side?

Who is Oscar Gloukh?

Gloukh’s father is his biggest fan and believes his son is ready for the big time, telling media last year “The sky is the limit.”

His talent could be seen from an early age and has went on to get better season by season.

The midfielder had nine goals and eight assists in 33 games for Maccabi Tel Aviv before his departure. He has since gone on to make 17 appearances for RB Salzburg scoring twice and assisting two goals as well.

He is equally impressive for his nation, last summer he scored four goals including a final strike against England, as Israel went all the way to the u19 European Championship final.

He has also made six caps for the senior Israel side, scoring two goals in the process. A true rising star.

Gloukh plays in the number 10 position primarily and has individual brilliance capable of creating chances for his teammates and scoring goals.

Gloukh has solid passing and a real sense of football IQ, allowing him to drop deeper at times to dictate play.

Should he sign, he likely comes as a direct understudy for vice-captain Bruno Fernandes who will require some rest this coming season as he nears 30.

In summary this signing would be exciting for the club and fans, but we have other priorities whether Gloukh is much more a luxury addition.
