Milan Skriniar

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified an Italian Serie A star as his top defensive target ahead of the upcoming transfer window in the New Year.

According to the publication from trusted English transfer news platform Daily Express, the Portuguese tactician has made Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar his no. 1 defensive target when the transfer window reopens in January.

Mourinho is seeking to bring stability and consistency to his defence ahead of the second half of the current campaign.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss was keen to beef up his defence in the summer but a transfer didn’t materialise for any of his centre-back targets.

The Reds Devils were strongly interested in European stars like Jerome Boateng of Bayern Munich and Germany, Diego Godin of Atletico Madrid and Uruguay, Harry Maguire of Leicester City and England as well as Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham Hotspur and Belgium.

Failure to sign a new centre-back has proved costly for Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side.

The Red Devils have conceded 21 goals in just 12 league games and only kept one clean sheet in the Premier League.

With this in mind, Mourinho has identified Skriniar as a top transfer target to boost his defence.

The 23-year-old Slovakian international has impressed for his Inter Milan side in this campaign.

Kieran Tierney

Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.

This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.

It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.

Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.

Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.

Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.

They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.

Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.

Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.

He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.
