Manchester United are looking to bolster their defence and Ralf Rangnick has reportedly identified Brighton full-back Tariq Lamptey.

According to the Daily Mail, United are looking for a new right-back as they have doubts over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s attacking game and Diogo Dalot’s defending.

Lamptey, who came through Chelsea’s academy, joined Brighton in January 2020 and has since established himself as one of the best young players in the Premier League.

He’s also been linked with both Arsenal and Tottenham but may be interested in making the switch to Old Trafford, judging by an admission he made in September 2020.

“When I was growing up they [United] were winning everything,” he told The Athletic. “I have the mentality where I hate to lose at anything, and United always had that under Sir Alex Ferguson. Maybe that’s why I was drawn to them.”
