England boss Roy Hodgson confirmed that the striker, 18, is on his radar ahead of the Euro 2016 finals.
It’s likely the Manchester United youngster, who has been capped by England at under-18 level, is a longer-term project for his country.
But Van Gaal insists age should be no barrier.
The United boss said: “It’s never too early. I have said a lot of times, age is not important. It’s the quality.”
