Manchester United eye Lyon starlet Lucas Tousart, who has been dubbed 'the little Deschamps'

Manchester United are tailing Lyon midfield ace Lucas Tousart.

The 19-year-old was watched by United scouts during last week’s Europa League fixture against Roma.

Tousart, who turns 20 next month, played for France against England in last summer’s Under-19 European Championship.
