Centre-back looks Old Trafford-bound this January.

Manchester United are tipped to sign Dynamo Kiev defender Aleksandar Dragovic after Arsenal’s deal for Gabriel Paulista saw them end their interest, according to the Daily Express.

The Austrian international is a highly-rated talent who has been on the radar of top clubs in the past, and is now being strongly linked with a £15m move to Old Trafford this winter.

United look in need of strengthening at the back after an inconsistent first half of the season, with Louis van Gaal failing to adequately replace experienced names such as Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, who both left the club in the summer.

Youngsters such as Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett have been given opportunities to impress in the first-team – with mixed results – and it seems United want to make a move for a more established player in that part of the pitch.

Dragovic now looks like being that man, and it is expected that Arsenal will no longer be serious rivals for his signature.
