Reports coming in from Italy allege that Manchester United scouts have been thoroughly impressed by Torino left back Raoul Bellanova.

As per Tuttosport, United scouts have been thoroughly impressed by the Italy U21 and are expected to closely monitor him in the coming months and weeks.

Bellanova has been enjoying a breakout season with Torino being deployed at left back, albeit he is predominantly a right back.

In 27 games across all competitions, he has one goal and five assists to his name and his performances have alerted the Italian FA, with national team manager Luciano Spalletti contemplating calling him up for the Euros.

Even at his young age, Bellanova is extremely experienced and has already turned out for Inter where he won the Italian Cup and Italian Super Cup, Atalanta and Bordeaux in France while coming up through the ranks at AC Milan.

His acceleration and dribbling ability have caught everyone’s eye, and a possible European Championship call-up will only lead to increased interest.

Manchester United personnel issues a full back will be more than incentive enough for United to buy into the hype of a young, promising full back who can be deployed on both flanks.

Starting left back Luke Shaw has been injured close to most of the season, being limited to only 15 appearances all season.

His understudy Tyrell Malacia has been out all season with a knee injury, and there is virtually no hope of him returning to action any time this season.

Diogo Dalot who sometimes fills in at left back has been busy as the sole right back on account of Wan-Bissaka’s injury troubles.

Torino know they have a winner on their hands and are expected to make a hefty profit from a future sale.

As for Bellanova, all he wants is to run up and down the flank to try to achieve his 2 big goals of the season: to accompany Torino back to Europe and win a place in the national team for the European Championship.
