The club also remain interested in bringing in a goalkeeper and a right-back ahead of the deadline.
Ajax have been informed that United have not ended their pursuit of Antony despite seeing an €80 million bid rejected.
The Dutch side have made it clear they are under no pressure to let him go after raising around €130m already this summer, but have communicated to United they will consider offers of around €100m for the Brazilian winger because of his desire to move to Old Trafford.
Sources have told ESPN that signing a forward is Erik ten Hag’s priority before next week’s deadline and that if a fee for Antony cannot be agreed, they will step up interest in Cody Gakpo, Christian Pulisic and Marcus Thuram.
PSV Eindhoven asked that any talks over Gakpo were delayed until after their Champions League qualifier with Rangers on Wednesday while there has been no encouragement from Chelsea that they would be willing to let Pulisic join a Premier League rival.
Wan-Bissaka has been made available and if he leaves, United will look to sign a replacement.
United are also expecting more departures from the club before the deadline.
They will listen to offers, including loan proposals, for Phil Jones, Brandon Williams, Axel Tuanzebe, Amad Diallo, Hannibal Mejbri and James Garner. There is interest from Everton in Garner, who is valued at around £14m.
