They have turned their searchlight on Manchester United and have identified Williams who they are keen on signing, but reports say United only want a loan deal.

The player impressed last season but he has only played once - off the bench - in the Premier League in 2020-21 so far out of just five total appearances.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side wants the player to get more first-team experience, but not a permanent deal which, according to Sky in Germany, is Leverkusen's preference.
