Manchester United are the latest club linked to Crystal Palace forward Alexander Sorloth.

The forward has been in scintillating form during his loan spell at Trabzonspor and the Red Devils reportedly sent scouts to watch the Norwegian in action over the weekend.

Fotomac revealed that United were one of a number of Europe’s elite to watch the 24-year-old perform in his side’s 5-2 win over Rizespor in Turkey’s Super Lig on Saturday.

If any sale were to materialise Palace would likely miss out on a bumper pay-day with Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu confirming what deal is in place with the his Sorloth's parent club.

“It is true, clubs are interested and watching him but we loaned him for two seasons from Crystal Palace,” Agaoglu said.

“I have until 31 May next year to use our buy option.”

That buy option is believed to be for as little as £6million, £3milion less than Palace paid Midtjylland in 2018.

Trabzonspor would then be able to sell the forward on for a marked-up price should they wish to cash-in on the man who failed to net a league goal at Selhurst Park.

The forward responded to rumours suggestion Europe’s best were interested in his services, but batted them away.

“I have seen the rumours, there are so many, I have read them and keep being sent information about teams that are interested,” he was quoted as saying by Turkish-Football.

“However, I am only focused on Trabzonspor, there is a great team spirit here and we want to win the double. 

“This is a great side, we play at the highest level and the team have really bonded together. 

“It would be irresponsible and wrong to disrespectful to talk about transfers at this time. 

“I am not going to do it, I am not getting involved, I am focused on the title race.”
