Trabzonspor midfielder Yusuf Yazici says he is well aware of rumours linking him with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder is reported to be a major target for the Red Devils as they look to rebuild their squad for the 2019/20 season, in which they will be aiming to return to the top-four on the Premier League log.

Yazici has registered three goals and two assists from 27 Turkish Super Lig appearances this season.

"The league is not over yet," he told Taka. "We still have a lot to play for. Transfer talks will wait until the end of the season. I am only focused on our next game against Konyaspor."

Yazici's comments come just days after Trabzonspor chairman Ahmet Agaoglu revealed that United had sent scouts to watch two of his players in recent weeks.

Speaking after Trabzonspor's 4-2 win over Kayserispor on Monday night, Agaoglu said: "Our players have been watched closely for a long time.

"Today, Manchester United and Lille scouts were at the game.

"It makes us very proud that Trabzonspor players are on the radars of the biggest clubs in Europe."

Along with Yazici, Trabzonspor teammate Abdulkadir Omur is also said to be a target for United.
