Manchester United are keen on two Italy-based strikers while Arsenal set aside some cash to tempt Marcus Rashford to the Emirates this summer…


Gary Neville is expecting Erik ten Hag to oversee a ‘brutal transition’ at Manchester United, one that could see Marcus Rashford sold off by his boyhood club.

Rashford has endured a wretched season and, once again, he was anonymous against Chelsea on Thursday night. That hasn’t put off some of the England striker’s admirers, with Barcelona said to be keen.

According to Football Insider, Arsenal have also made their interest known. Apparently, the Gunners have set aside £45million to spend on a striker capable of slotting straight into Mikel Arteta’s side.

To replace Edinson Cavani and potentially Rashford, United have indicated to Napoli that they are willing to pay £84million to land Victor Osimhen. That’s the word according to La Repubblica.

Another report in Italy, this time from Corriere dello Sport, suggests Ten Hag wants United to sign Paulo Dybala from Juventus.

Dybala is set to become a free agent this summer when his Juve contract expires, with Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City also being linked with the Argentina forward.


One per Premier League club: Reasons why they should sign Pogba


Paul Pogba will also enter the free agent pool this summer when he will leave Manchester United after six wasted years for the club and their record signing.

Real Madrid and Juventus are rumoured to be interested in signing Pogba and Real are said to be coming on strong.

El Nacional says the Spaniards, who can clinch the La Liga title this weekend, want to sign both Pogba and Aurelien Tchouameni this summer as they look to revamp their midfield.

Monaco midfielder Tchouameni is set to move on at the end of the season, with Liverpool also reported to be keen on the 22-year-old.

To make room in their squad, Real are understood to be willing to sell Germany star Toni Kroos.


Liverpool are also set to be in the market for a striker when Divock Origi packs his bags, possibly for AC Milan.

Fichajes claims the Reds have identified Enes Unal as the man they want to replace the Belgium forward in their squad.

The Turkey forward has scored 15 goals in 32 La Liga appearances this season for Getafe, with only Karim Benzema ahead of the 24-year-old in the Spanish scoring stakes.

Unal spent a couple of years on Man City’s books as a youngster before finding a home at Getafe, going via Genk, NAC Breda, Twente, Villarreal, Levante and Vallodolid.
