His impressive record of a goal every game includes nine goals in 10 Belgian league games.
The 20-year-old’s prolific nature has seen him start to gather interest from clubs all over Europe.
Man United are leading the chase, with the club looking to bolster their attacking options this summer.
The Red Devils’ top two targets are Tottenham record scorer Harry Kane and Napoli star Victor Osimhen.
However, the club would also like to sign a younger striker that can learn and grow into the role.
And according to Nieuwsblad, United scouts were in the stands to watch Orban’s most recent match.
He helped Gent to a stunning 4-0 victory over Cercle Brugge by netting a hat-trick.
Orban’s first two goals were typical of a poacher, but his third was the best of the lot.

The pacy forward latched onto a long ball and lobbed the goalkeeper with his first-time shot.
Orban is a player that is not short of confidence. In one game this season, he hit the crossbar straight from kick-off.
He also almost scored an outrageous overhead kick against West Ham in the Europa Conference League quarter-finals.
Orban cost Gent £2million when he joined the club in January from Norwegian side Stabaek.
