Luton Town have emerged as surprise contenders for the signature of out-of-favour Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek.
The Independent reports that the newly promoted club is seriously considering a last-minute swoop for the 26-year-old, who is in the shadows at Old Trafford.
Van de Beek’s future has been a talking point throughout the summer transfer window, with several clubs expressing interest in acquiring his services.
However, the midfielder has remained at United despite plummeting down the pecking order under manager Erik ten Hag.
Luton want to bolster their midfield before the transfer window slams shut tonight and have the Dutchman on their radar.
Manager Rob Edwards is believed to have identified Van de Beek as a top target, aiming to add Premier League quality to his squad.
Luton have been proactive in the transfer market this summer, securing 11 new signings.
Van de Beek’s stint in English football has been anything but smooth sailing.
Since Erik ten Hag’s appointment, the 19-time Netherlands international has featured sparingly, making just ten appearances for the Red Devils.
A brief loan spell to Everton was marred by injuries, preventing him from making a substantial impact.
With his prospects dwindling at Old Trafford, a fresh start at Luton could be the catalyst needed to reignite his career.
Lorient, Genoa and AS Roma have also shown interest in the former Ajax midfielder, but Luton will make a decisive move on deadline day to secure his signature.
