Manchester United keen to land Ajax wonder-kid Viktor Fischer

Manchester United are chasing 17-year old Ajax starlet Viktor Fischer according to the Gazzette dello Sport. The striker is thought to be subject of an €11 million offer from the Red Devils as they look to snap up the young talent. The Danish striker arrived at Ajax only last year from FC Midtylland.

An U-19 international for his nation, Fischer has received rave reviews and alarmed top clubs with his exceptional performance in the Next Gen Series where he led his team to the final, scoring a hat-trick in a 6-0 demolition of Liverpool on the way.

United are expected to face competition from European giants AC Milan and Bayern Munich, but are supposedly the favourites for the signature of the striker now plying his trade in the famed Ajax Academy. Generating such interests despite not making a single appearance for Frank de Boer's Dutch champions is a testimony to Fischer's talent.

Ajax would be hoping to keep hold of their young prospect, who is contracted with them till 2014. His style of play has been compared to Belgian forward Eden Hazard, a man Manchester United recently lost out on to rivals Chelsea. The Dutch champions could struggle if offers for the player pour in, especially with Sir Alex Ferguson seeming hell bent on landing the youngster.
