​England are reportedly on alert following news that a Premier League starlet is eligible to play for Gareth Southgate's side.

​With the 2022 World Cup approaching, Southgate could very well be adding a Manchester United talent to his star-studded team. 

That's because Anthony Elanga is eligible to represent The Three Lions having lived in the country long enough to qualify.

The FA are aware that the 19-year-old can opt for England having joined Man United's youth academy at the age of 12. 

Before linking up with the Premier League side, Elanga played for Swedish club Malmo at an early age.

He's represented Sweden's under-17s, under-18s and under-21s, but has yet to appear for the senior team.

The Swedish-born forward burst onto the scene last season, scoring against Wolves on the final day of the campaign. 

And he's made eight appearances this term, netting against Brentford earlier this month. 

​He started in his team's 3-1 win after making the starting XI against Aston Villa the league game before.

Elanga praised Ralf Rangnick after bagging his first league goal of the season.

"I appreciate the boss so much," he said. ​

"You can see in training, the intensity, how much we're running, and if you put the work in you'll get rewards in games.

"That's what I try to do every day, try to work hard and train the way I want to play.

"We needed this win, it's about keeping pushing and keeping working hard."
