England are watching Manchester United attacker Anthony Elanga.

The FA are aware that Elanga, 19, who joined Manchester United's academy at the age of 12, has lived in the UK long enough to represent the Three Lions, says The Sun.

Elanga, the son of former Cameroon defender Joseph Elanga, was born in Sweden, played for Swedish side Malmo at a very early age and has represented the country's Under-21s eight times.

Not only has Elanga featured in eight games for United this season, he also started the last three matches.

And the 19-year-old scored in the crucial 3-1 away victory over Brentford.

Sweden manager Janne Andersson hoped to include him in a scheduled 24-man tour of Portugal this week.

But Old Trafford boss Ralf Rangnick blocked that last month.

But the Swedes, who have a World Cup play-off semi-final against Czech Republic in March, do not believe Elanga is looking to switch and play for either England or Cameroon.
