Belgian side Zulte Waregem have received "two firm offers" for U21 international Bernard Malanda-Adje from Premier League clubs - understood to be Manchester United and Arsenal.

The man dubbed "the new Fellaini", who is equally at home in midfield or in a more defensive role, has been followed by a host of English sides, with United and Arsenal leading the chase.

SportsDirect News understands two Premier League outfits have made offers "in excess of £5 million", which the club are weighing up, according to a source at Zulte Waregem.

Also known as Junior Malanda, the player shot to prominence in the UK last season when Fulham boss Martin Jol and then Everton boss David Moyes, now at Manchester United, were involved in a transfer battle for the player.
