    Manchester United are tracking Swansea star Alfie Mawson following the defender’s recent call-up to the England squad.

    Jose Mourinho is keen to bolster his back-four this summer and is considering a move for the 24-year-old, according to reports.

    The Sun claim United sent one of their top scouts to watch Mawson in action during last weekend’s 1-1 draw with West Brom.

    And the Reds Devils boss received rave reviews about the Three Lions youngster.

    Mourinho wants to reshuffle his defensive options when the transfer window opens, with the futures of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in doubt.

    And it appears he could turn to Swans star Mawson, who earned his first call-up to the senior England side for last months’ friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy.

    Premier League ‘top six’ rivals Tottenham have also expressed an interest in the centre-back, and were reportedly told they would have to pay up £40million to land him.

    However, that fee has not put off big-spending United.
