Manchester United and Liverpool are set for a transfer battle to land Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas Moura. The two English giants would be willing to go head-to-head in signing the winger.

The 22-year-old has made 17 appearances in Ligue 1 so far this season, playing 1059 minutes averaging over an hour a game. He had snubbed a chance to move to Old Trafford before joining the French champions in 2012.

The Telegraph reported that the Brazil international is a target for United, while their league rivals Liverpool could also make an approach for his services. PSG are open the idea of allowing Moura to leave and are willing to listen to offers.

Moura is valued at around £22m ($32.7m) by the French outfit. The 20-time English champions and the Merseysied club need to match PSG's asking price to secure his signature.

United have scored 22 goals in 17 matches and have the worst scoring rate among the top six teams. The Red Devils have struggled to score this season and Louis van Gaal has already expressed his desire to add "speed and creativity" to the squad. Should they sign the PSG winger, he could add more pace to their attack.

Meanwhile, Moura has admitted that he is happy with his current employers. He also revealed that he is aware of recent reports linking him to Premier League clubs and suggested that he will consider offers from English outfits, if he is no longer happy in Paris.

"In football, you don't even know about tomorrow," Moura told SporTV, as quoted by "The Premier League is the strongest league and if tomorrow or later an opportunity comes and I'm not happy here, of course I'll have a think about it."

"I am pleased with the interest of big clubs in me - if it is true it shows that they are watching me and happy with my football. But my head is focused on PSG, I never thought of leaving here and I want to achieve my goals here," he added.
