Man United tracking 18-year-old lower league English striker

Antoine Semenyo has been linked with Manchester United

Antoine Semenyo is a target for Manchester United, according to Bristol City loan manager Brian Tinnion.

The youngster is on loan at Newport County from Bristol City and has scored five times from 24 appearances, as per the Express.

Tinnion claimed he was sitting with some United scouts and said (h/t Express):

“I was sat with a Man United scout at Newport the other week, to be honest.

“And they really like him. People will like him because he’s 18 years of age.

“We’ve got a lot of talent, there’s eight out on loan in the League at the minute and then probably 12 below the league.”

The 18-year-old only has one senior league appearance for City, and it will be interesting to see if we do make a move for the youngster.

The English youngster had spent time with Bath City in the National League South last season where he scored six goals from nine appearances.

Manchester United could do with more fresh talent for their youth sides, but we need quality in our first-team too.

We have struggled to beat teams this season and our defence hasn’t been great either. Jose Mourinho has to spend in the winter window, and hopefully, the manager gets the right players into the club and takes us into the top four.
