Moyes has been monitoring the player for some time now.
Manchester United target Kevin Strootman’s agent has declared his client’s interest in moving to the Premier League this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The coveted Netherlands international has been the subject of interest from the Premier League champions of late, with new Red Devils head coach David Moyes having wanted to sign the holding midfield player while he was in charge of Everton.
However, the Scot is said to be keen to follow up that interest now that he has moved to Old Trafford to take over from previous United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, particularly after the 23-year-old shone for his club PSV Eindhoven in the Eredivisie last season.
Strootman appeared in 42 matches in all competitions for the Dutch giants in 2012-13, scoring seven goals from his deep-lying midfield role, including five strikes in his 32 league contests, and Moyes sees him as taking on the holding role at Old Trafford in the new campaign.
“He is focused on England because that would suit his style,” said Chiel Dekker, Strootman’s agent.
“He has the physique, the character and the fitness for it.
“I am certainly not afraid he could handle that level.”
