Premier League giants Arsenal and Manchester United both want £8m rated Austrian defender Martin Hinteregger, reports Inside Futbol.
The 21-year-old currently stars for Red Bull Salzburg, and has alerted the attention of many European clubs with a series of composed performances.
The defender’s agent Frank Schreirer has claimed his client is aware of the interest from the Premier League, but has confirmed that as of yet, no offers have been made for his services.
“There are so many interested clubs that have asked me about the boy, but then again, there is nothing official,” the agent said.
“Given the interest of Manchester United, the player has a future to be written in Serie A or the Premier League.”
United desperately need to strengthen the central defensive area in the summer, with Rio Ferdinand potentially retiring and club captain Nemanja Vidic leaving when his contract expires.
Arsenal currently have Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker partnered at the back, but will likely need a new back up with Thomas Vermaelen expected to leave at the end of the season in search of first-team football.
