Manchester United looking to battle Arsenal as both clubs scout Antonio Nusa.
Express reports that Manchester United and Arsenal scouts will be in attendance to assess Jupiler Pro League’s team Club Brugge’s player Antonio Nusa.
Brugge are playing Turkish club Besiktas in the Europa Conference League Group D opening fixture in Jan Breydel Stadium, Belgium. The 18-year-old has already made his debut for Norway in a game against Jordan and scored his first goal.
Despite his age, Nusa has gained a lot of first-team experience at his club. The Norwegian has appeared in 47 matches so far while contributing five goals and four assists for Brugge.
Nusa earned recognition from scouts and analysts for his pace, skilful dribbling, and clever movements He is also a good passer of the ball with the ability to create openings for his team.
The 18-year-old primarily plays in wing positions but possesses the full capability to operate as a central forward. Nusa’s versatility and young age help him cover for multiple positions within the team.
United are facing a crisis in attacking options as Jadon Sancho had a falling out with manager Erik ten Hag. The Red Devils have also granted Antony a leave of absence until he sorts out the controversy that surrounds him.
United’s left wing is mainly occupied by Marcus Rashford as the English international thrives most by making his dashing runs from the flank. Rashford was the leading goal scorer for the Red Devils last season with 30 goals in all competitions.
Currently, Alejandro Garnacho and Facundo Pellistri are the natural options for the wing position at United. It remains uncertain whether United will opt for someone with more experience or if they will target Nusa in upcoming transfer windows.
