Sevilla target Man Utd star Edinson Cavani as well as wantaway Anthony Martial in January transfer swoop

MANCHESTER UNITED duo Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial are reportedly being targetted by Spanish side Sevilla.

The two strikers have barely got a look-in, in recent months, and could be set for a January move out of Old Trafford.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Sevilla are likely to rival Barcelona for Cavani should he become available.

But they face a battle to snap up the 34-year-old Uruguayan, as he 'dreams of finishing his career with Barcelona'.

If indeed Sevilla miss out on Cavani, they could turn to his United team-mate Martial.

The France forward’s agent has already made it clear his client wants to move next month.

Newcastle have been strongly linked but Sevilla is his preferred destination, although the Spanish club favour an initial loan for the remainder of the season.

Martial has made 10 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring twice.

Cavani, who has been struggling with injury, has featured seven times, scoring once.

Another option for the former PSG star could be a surprise switch to Brazilian side Corinthians.

Agent Andre Cury, who was involved in Neymar's stunning transfer to Barcelona in 2013 told Torcedores: "He [Cavani] is unhappy at United.

"He's a guy I already know a little about his history because we almost brought him to Palmeiras the other time.

"He's a guy who owns a farm in Uruguay and likes to be close to home, so in that sense there might be some possibility."
