As Manchester United are watching Kieran Trippier, Ole Gunnar Solskazar notices a right-back competition for Aaron One-Bisakar.
One-Bisca has started this season with all but two games for the Red Devils, with a consistent performer for the 23-year-old Soulskazar.
But United boss Soulskaz has a few more options as a cover for the defender, with Tim Fosu-Mensah being the only other senior right-back at the club.
According to The Telegraph, the manager is shaking up for Atletico Madrid and England S Trippier.
The publication states that Norwegians can wait until the summer to jump for the tripper instead of stepping into the January transfer window.
The 30-year-old will enter the final year of his Atletico contract at the end of this season – so it could be the best time for him to land for a knockout price.
Tripier is in his second season with the La Liga giants since joining Tottenham for a staggering 20 20 million last year.
In addition to competing and providing cover for the One-Biscuits, Tripier will offer Solskazir a separate option in the flanks.
The former Spurs man has been a more aggressive full-back than One-Biscay, whose one-on-one defending has been impressive this season.
The United showed their worth when they saved West Ham from doubling their lead in the first half of the Premier League on Saturday at Upton Park.
After his team went ahead with a goal from Thomas Sussex, One-Bisca made a hash of clearance, giving Jarod Bowen a clear run from goalkeeper Dean Henderson.
Defender Hammers recovered brilliantly for refusing to stay ahead – and it proved to be a timely intervention as United struggled to a 3-1 win in the second half thanks to goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.
The Red Devils briefly climbed to the top four of the Premier League as a result of the win, although they moved back to fifth after Leicester’s win against Sheffield United on Sunday.
Portuguese right-back Diego Dalot is also in United’s books but he is currently on a season-long loan with Serie A leaders AC Milan.
