Napoli’s Algerian defender Faouzi Ghoulam has emerged as a target for English giants Manchester United.

The 26-year-old Algerian international has been with the Serie A club since signing from French side St. Etienne in 2014. The left-back has established himself as a consistent performer for new boss Maurizio Sarri and he is regarded as one of the top left-back in the Italian game.

This status, however, ensures he will not be sold for cheap and as such a bid of €60 million is reportedly being readied by Man United. A move, however, is more likely in the summer as Napoli will not entertain any offers for the player midway through the season as they continue to chase their first Scudetto since 1990.

The Napoli star is also a reported target for both Chelsea and Liverpool – both clubs have been linked with a move for the player in the past. Since news of Napoli agreeing a deal for Benfica left-back Alejandro Grimaldo broke earlier this week, the English teams now fancy their chances of getting the defender.

The left-back position has been a problematic one for Manchester United since the players available have not been able to claim opportunities to tie down a starting spot with Ashley Young recently having an extended run in the position.

However, much criticized English left-back Luke Shaw has impressed in recent games starting the last 3 Premier League games for the club and has seemingly gained the managers trust.

He will have to remain fit and produce consistently good performances to maintain his starting berth.

Kai Havertz

Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Liverpool’s hope of signing 20-year-old midfielder Kai Havertz is now tied to the advice the youngster receives from Germany head coach Joachim Low.

The Germany international, who scored 20 goals for Bayer Leverkusen last season, has been linked with a move to the three European giants but he said he will seek for advice from his national team manager.

According to Havertz, he will speak to the 2014 World Cup winning manager during the ongoing international break concerning the incoming offers from United and Liverpool.

“I listen to many people but in the end it will be my decision. I will embrace any advice Low will give me because he has a lot experience – it wouldn’t be smart to not listen to him,” he said.

United are desperately in need of a regular goalscorer as Rashford and Anthony Martial are far from convincing, no thanks to the latter’s injury problems.

As for Liverpool, the Reds are in fine form having extended their winning streak to eight games against the Foxes before the break.

However, Klopp believes there is a need to add a midfielder to his team as Fabinho hasn’t lived up to his billing just yet.

Premier League giants Manchester United are almost certain to boost their squad when the transfer window reopens in two months time.

The Red Devils are in need of reinforcements especially in defense and midfield and West Ham United star Declan Rice could be one of the players signed in January.

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United want to sign Declan Rice and they might need to pay as much as 70 million pounds for him.

Declan Rice has already said that his future lies with West Ham United as he has a contract that does not expire until the summer of 2024 but his stance could change in no time.

Manchester United were one of several clubs interested in signing him during this summer’s transfer window but the England international player stayed with the Hammers for the start of the season.

Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini have not been adequately replaced since the midfielders left Manchester United earlier this year and the signing of Declan Rice would go a long way to rectify that problem.

Fellaini left Manchester United to join Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Shandong Luneng during the winter transfer window in January, while Ander Herrera signed for PSG on a free transfer.

Donny Van Der Beek

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who could be shown the exit door due to poor results, is far from convinced with what he has seen from Ajax youngster Donny Van de Beek so far this season.

The Dutchman was linked with a switch to the Old Trafford outfit in the summer but the Norwegian tactician turned down the chance to capture his services.

According to British media The Mirror, Solskjaer was pleased with the fact that Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were available ahead of the season, hence, he kicked against splashing £35m on the midfielder.

Unfortunately, the decision seemed to have backfired judging by the team’s lack of creativity in the middle of the pitch.

Despite the current uninspiring form at Old Trafford, reports claimed that Solskjaer isn’t ready to change his mind and he won’t be competing with Real Madrid for the Ajax youngster when the winter transaction period commences in January.

Real Madrid are now tipped as the possible destination for the Dutchman who helped Ajax to a semifinal spot in last season’s Champions League competition.

The Los Blancos are told to offer an increased price of £100m by the Eredivisie side if they must lure the young midfielder to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
