Man Utd are eager to make those moves that will give them a chance to challenge the top four clubs. but they need to act carefully as they need to hit bulls eye in their transfer deals. Harry Maguire from Leicester City, Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic and Belgian international Youri Tielemans. The big question is, who will be left out.
Barcelona are closing in on Antoine Griezman, but it’s not done and settled yet. The French international will of course challenge the current set up in the Barce first 11, difficult to see how this will be all together.
Manchester City are chasing players that currently is not been seen by other Premier League clubs. Atletico Madrid star Rodri is on the “Pep radar” and a fee of around £60million could be what it takes to bring the former Villareal player to The Etihad.
Aston Villa are leading the chase for Stoke and England goalkeeper Jack Butland. Butland has a past at neighbour Birmingham City and would probably welcome a switch back to the top flight.
Derby County will fight to keep Frank Lampard. Chelsea wants their former player to take over from Sarri who has departed for Juventus. Lampard (40) has just one year experience from management, but who will turn down an approach from your former employee and taking over one of the most attractive jobs in football.
A rather absurd rumour is the one about Scott McTominay joining Crystal Palace. Scott might be eager to get first team football week in and week out, but to see him joining The Eagles is a bit strange. The reason might be that a contract extension would be what the young Scot is looking for.
Denzel Dumfries is a target for Manchester United. The Dutch international who operates on right back could be an ideal signing to bring to Old Trafford with this position not really 100% covered at the moment. Dumfries is currently with PSV Eindhoven and has a past Heerenveen and Sparta Rotterdam.
West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson is in demand. A number of Premier League clubs are ready to bring him in, with Burnley and Watford the front runners in a chase that also include Norwich City and Crystal Palace.
Bournemouth are eager to solve their long term goalkeeper challenge. Asmir Begovic and Artur Boric are both considered not the ideal first team alternative and are now looking for a chance to bring in Jack Butland, who is also heavily linked with Aston Villa, but if the Stoke goalkeeper moved to Villa, Joe Hart is considered the next option.
Michael Appleton is among a number of candidates for the vacant manager job at Hull City. He has earlier been among the front runners at West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough, but the former Oxford United boss and Leicester City assistant could be lucky this time.
Tanguy Ndombele is a target for Tottenham. But the Lyon star is also wanted at Juventus with Sarri hopefully managing to convince the 22 year midfielder to join the top team of Italian Serie A.
Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy is a target for Liverpool. This is yet another storm toward south and The Saints to bring yet another recruit from that club. Virgil van Dijk, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane are all at Anfield, joining from Southampton.
Aaron Van-Bissaka looks certain to join Manchester United from Crystal Palace. The “Babes” policy continues at Old Trafford as yet another youngster joins Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad of players.
Atalanta defender Timothy Castagne is a target for Crystal Palace. The Serie A club might be a bit reluctant, but a substantial offer will not be possible to turn down as financial issues must be taken into consideration. Castagne (23) could be the ideal replacement for Van-Bissake if he joins Crystal Palace.
Joao Cancelo is a close target Pep Guardiola and Man City. The Juve right back could slot in and be a good addition to the Manchester City squad. The 25 year old Portuguese international has a past at Valencia and Benfica.
