Despite being overtaken by fellow striker Nahki Wells in the scoring charts, Davies views Hanson as the main weapon in their arsenal but admits he's got to rediscover his scoring touch.

The 24-year-old has gone four starts since his last goal after setting his sights on reaching 20 goals for the first time in his career.

"Hans is getting better and better and maturing as a person as well. He needs to be our main goal threat," Davies told the Telegraph & Argus.

"Strikers are judged on goals and he's scored a few this season. But I'm sure he'll admit he could have had a lot more than he has.

"If we're going to go up this year, and that's what we all want, then he needs to be scoring the goals. That's the pressure he is under as our centre forward."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
