Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged his old club to sign Borussia Dortmund starlet Jadon Sancho this summer.
United have been linked with a summer move for Tottenham star Harry Kane, but Ferdinand believes the Red Devils should instead look to lure Sancho to Manchester.
And the former centre-back believes the Red Devils should also make a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, as well as Napoli defender Kalibou Koulibaly when the transfer window reopens.
Sancho has been linked with a number of clubs in recent months, with Liverpool and Manchester City also reportedly keen on signing the 20-year-old.
Talk of a summer swoop for England captain Kane continues to be talked about, but Ferdinand believes the Old Trafford giants should turn their attention elsewhere.
When asked about new signings, Ferdinand told BBC Radio 5 Live's 606 Savage Social podcast: "Sancho, Koulibaly and Saul Niguez.
"I think Harry Kane's been linked but if I'm pushing for an attacking player I'd still go for Sancho, he gives you that little bit of imagination and I think he gives you that little bit of spice that they haven't got at the moment."
The former England international added of Sancho: "He's got an arrogance about him, it's what you want on a football pitch, they'd embrace that."
Sancho came off the bench at the weekend as Dortmund beat Schalke 4-0 in the Bundesliga.
