WERDER BREMEN have stated their interest in taking Manchester United winger Tahith Chong on loan.
The Red Devils were near to losing young star Chong, 20, on a free before he signed a new contract in the spring.
And with a first-team spot not within his reach at this time, a temporary spell away looks most likely.
German club Werder have made their claim with director Frank Baumann telling Weser Kurier that the Dutchman is a target.
He stated: “[Chong] is very fast, he comes in from the wing – he fits our profile.
“We can add two or three more players. Borrowing guys from top clubs like this can make sense to us.
“Because of our situation, he’s a player who could be interesting.”
Werder can offer Chong top-flight football after narrowly avoiding relegation from the Bundesliga.
A final day victory pushed Die Werderaner out of the drop zone before an away goals win in the relegation play-off, maintaining their 29-year stay in the division.
Solskjaer did not pick Chong for any Premier League squads after the restart, with the United youngster making just three league appearances all season.
He returned to the bench for Wednesday’s Europa League second leg with LASK.
Chong’s agent Jonathan Barnett has also opened the door to a loan spell away from Manchester.
He told Stretty News last month: “[Chong] believes, we all believe, that he has a future there.
“I think he’s a great talent but he needs to be playing games and if that means going out on loan then maybe that’s something which we need to be talking about.”
When asked directly whether that meant him going out on loan, Barnett replied: “I would think so.”
