Anderson and Muto January transfer targets for LVG

The January transfer window opens soon and it is understood that under fire boss Louis van Gaal is looking to strengthen his attacking options.

According to Italian newspaper La Repubblica, van Gaal is targeting £45m rated Lazio winger, Felipe Anderson.

The pacey midfielder can operate both centrally and on the wing which makes him an ideal candidate for van Gaal and with the reds having monitored the Brazilian they are now ready to launch a bid.

Also on the United boss’ radar is Mainz forward, Yoshinori Muto. The former FC Tokyo player joined the Bundesliga team in 2013 and United are ready to make a £15m bid.
