The 23 year old is considered one of the hottest prospects in French football and could well be a cheaper alternative for David Moyes to pursue than other creative midfield talents on the Old Trafford manager’s wish-list.

Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera, Miralem Pjanic and Marek Hamsik are all also known to be of interest to Moyes but could cost the Premier League side a far higher sum than Cabella and as such may be a more viable January transfer target for the Scot.
Cabella has had a fine season thus far, scoring six goals and providing three assists and this despite his side languishing near the relegation zone.
A number of other Premier League sides are said to be keen on Cabella, as are in-form Serie A outfit AS Roma, though Moyes will hope to secure a deal to bring in the former French Under 21 international to act as a conduit between midfield and attack.
This is a role that Moyes would have hoped to use Shinji Kagawa in but the Japanese international has struggled for form and it appears the former Everton boss sees Marouane Fellaini in a more defensively minded holding role.
