Kobel has impressed for Borussia Dortmund this season
United are also keeping an eye out for a new goalie with David de Gea in the final 18 months of his contract.
And according to Sport1 they could make a summer move for Kobel.
However the report adds Chelsea have held a meeting with the player’s representatives over a potential switch.
Kobel, 26, still has three years remaining on his contract so Dortmund could demand a huge fee to let him leave.
The Swiss has impressed since joining from Koln in 2021 and has kept eight clean sheets in 18 games this season.
Kobel has also committed his future to the club after speculation linked him with a move to Bayern Munich in December.
He said: “I did not hear those stories and that’s not of interest to me either.
“I play for Borussia Dortmund and we have big plans with BVB. That’s all I care about.”

Sevilla star Bono is also believed to be of interest but he could cost £45million.
