Manchester United are monitoring the development of Bristol City forward Antoine Semenyo, according to the club’s loan boss Brian Tinnion.
Bristol City forward Antoine Semenyo has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Manchester United.
Semenyo has only made one substitute appearance for City’s first team, with the 18-year-old currently on loan at Newport County where he has scored twice in 16 outings in League Two.
However, City’s loan manager Brian Tinnion has revealed that United hold an interest in adding the youngster to their ranks in the future.
Tinnion told the Robins On The Wire podcast: “I was sat with a Man United scout at Newport the other week, to be honest, and they really like him. People will like him because he’s 18 years of age.
“We’ve got a lot of talent, there’s eight out on loan in the League at the minute and then probably 12 below the league.”
Semenyo signed his first professional contract at the start of 2018, but that is currently due to expire at the end of the campaign.
