Ex-England captain urges former club to sign Brighton starlet as Atletico Madrid show interest
But Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Rooney – currently at Championship strugglers Derby County – is impressed with the Albion full-back, who has performed exceptionally for Graham Potter this season.
Indeed, it has been said that England’s record goal-scorer has urged the Red Devils to consider a move for Lamptey to strengthen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side after a tough start to the season.
Diego Simeone is apparently also keen on Lamptey, who has scored one goal and bagged one assist in eight league games so far this campaign.
Mundo Deportivo also claims Brighton have no plans to sell Lamptey given the defender’s impressive start to life at the Amex Stadium.
