Manchester United will join Arsenal and Spurs in the race to sign Hoffenheim youngster Nadiem Amiri.

Bild reports that Spurs were heavily linked with a move for the player in the summer and are once again leading the race to sign him in January.

The Hoffenheim attacker has a release clause of £15 million in his current deal with the Bundesliga club.
