Sheffield United are interested in signing Manchester United winger Amad Diallo on loan.
The Championship club are looking to add reinforcements following their relegation from the Premier League last season.
Manchester United may allow him to leave in search of more game time, but a final decision has yet to be made.
Amad arrived at Old Trafford in January after a £37m fee was agreed with Serie A side Atalanta the previous October.
The 19-year-old has made eight appearances for United, scoring once, but may find his first-team opportunities limited following the arrival of Jadon Sancho earlier in the summer window.
James Garner is in talks over a new contract at Manchester United, and if that can be completed before Deadline Day, he will then be allowed out on loan - with Nottingham Forest one possible destination.
The 20-year-old midfielder was given a chance to impress manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a behind-closed-doors friendly on Tuesday.
Garner came off the bench for the final 30 minutes in United's 3-1 friendly win against Burnley.
He is highly thought of at Old Trafford, but Solksjaer wants him to gain more experience before he includes him in his first-team plans.
Garner initially stalled on any new contract talks, because he is desperate to play more regular football, but with a year left on his current deal - and an option in the club's favour to extend it by a further year - it now looks like a deal could be agreed.
Forest are keen to take Garner back to the City Ground. He impressed during a loan spell after signing in January.
Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is finalising a season-long loan move to Brazilian club Flamengo.
Pereira was an unused substitute as United opened their Premier League season with a 5-1 win over Leeds on Saturday.
The 25-year-old's contract at Old Trafford runs until the summer of 2023, with United holding an option of extending it by a further year.
The Brazilian spent last season at Serie A club Lazio and a move to Flamengo will be the fourth time he has been loaned out by United following spells at Granada and Valencia.
