Liverpool

The last time Liverpool filed out in a game, they met an unforeseen defeat and that will be in their mind as they travel to the Amex Stadium to battle Brighton and Hove Albion later on Saturday.

It would be a Premier League encounter which the Reds will hope to continue their unbeaten streak as well as extend their lead on top of the league table.

However, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp goes into the game sweating as he battles with the injury of Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip which leave him with Virgil Van Dijk as the only natural player for the central defence.

However, this could force Fabinho into falling down from the middle to pair with the former Southampton star while the depth of the middle would be covered by James Milner and Georgino Wijnaldum with Jordan Henderson probably to start from the bench with his fitness concern.

Meanwhile, Xherdan Shaqiri has been in fine form could earn him a call in the attack but at a wide position alongside Sadio Mane while Mohamed Salah and Firmino would also take their place as well.

See Probable line-up of 4-2-3-1
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah.

Jadon Sancho

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not hidden his wish to land England international winger Jadon Sancho this summer transfer window but from the look of things, it could end in a mere wish.

It is understood that Jadon Sancho is keen on a move to Man United but German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund have refused to accept the offers that have been submitted in the past.

It is now reported that the Red Devils are set to submit a take-or-leave-it bid of £90 million for the Man City academy product which is now reported to have been rejected.

However, what was not known by most Man United fans have been revealed by Jan Aage Fjortoft, a retired footballer and confirmed by transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano that the Red Devils have not submitted any bid in recent days.

It is also claimed that Borussia Dortmund will not accept the bid as they are unwilling o shift ground with the club chiefs already expressing confidence that the young winger will be staying at the club this season.

Bearing last minutes changes, the Red Devils will have to find an alternative for Jadon Sancho if they must bring in a new winger to the Old Trafford this summer window.

Ousmane Dembele

It is understood that Man United will now face Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele as their top target with just a few days to the end of the summer transfer window.

Reports claim that the Red Devils have accepted defeat in their chase for England international winger Jadon Sancho as their improved bid of £90 million is not being accepted by German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund.

Reports in Spain now claim that the Red Devils have turned their attention on the Barcelona star as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his attack for the new season.

Ousmane Dembele is no longer favoured for selection in the Barcelona team but he has continued to insist on staying at the club. However, a loan deal is being proposed with an option to buy and that could tempt the player into accepting the offer from the Red Devils so as to get more playing time.

Should Barcelona decide to let go of the former Borussia Dortmund forward, he will be available for about £53 million and that could be considered by the Red Devils to invest in.

Talks are expected to be held between the two clubs to agree on the terms for the deal before personal terms can be discussed with the player.

Diogo Dalot

Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma are reported to be in contact with Man United over the signature of full-back Diogo Dalot, according to reports in Italy.

Diogo Dalot has gone down the pecking order in the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has only featured in one game since the restart of last season and it is expected to continue. This is the reason why he will have to leave the club for a new challenge.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will prefer Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Timothy Fosu-Mensah at the right full-back and does not have any plan for Diogo Dalot for the new season.

Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan have earlier made an attempt to secure the service of Diogo Dalot on a loan deal but from all indications, they have been beaten by AS Roma.

Italian outlet Tutto Mercato reports that AS Roma have touched base with the Red Devils over a potential move for Diogo Dalot and they will have to agree on a deal Man United.

The Red Devils will be happy to cash in from the sale of Diogo Dalot as they are in need of cash to be able to sanction other deals before the end of the summer transfer window.

English Premier League club Arsenal are also in a last-minute rush to complete a deal for a midfielder before the summer transfer window ends on October 3.

The Mikel Arteta team have already secured the signature of Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille while two other players have been made permanent as they were on loan at the club.

The Attention has since been shifted to the search for a midfielder and the Gunners have been linked with the signature of Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey and Lyon star Houssem Aouar but they are yet to snap of the signature of any of the two.

The asking price has been the challenge for the Gunners to secure the service of any of the midfield targets and that could force them into considering other options.

Italian publication ll Messaggero, cited by Daily Star reports that the North London outfit are now considering the signature of AS Roma midfielder Amadou Diawara and will involve Lucas Torreira in the deal.

It is understood that £19 million will be enough to convince AS Roma to release the 23-year-old and the said fee will not be paid completely with the involvement of Lucas Torreira in the deal.

One of these two surprise names could end up at Man United

Jadon Sancho

Man United have been told that England international winger Jadon Sancho will not be leaving Borussia Dortmund this summer transfer window as their bid of £90 million was rejected.

The Red Devils are, therefore; set to respond to the rejection of their bid by making moves to secure other alternatives despite the scarce options available in the market.

Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele has been linked with a move to the Old Trafford as he now emerges as the top target but it is understood that it will be difficult to convince hi of a move as he is not ready to leave Camp Nou despite the lack of playing time.

However, it is believed that Man United will look to bring in one player on loan with a report claiming that they could be considering the option of Edison Cavani and Luka Jovic as both players have been offered to them.

Edison Cavani is now a free agent as he has left French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain. It is believed that it will be easy for the Red Devils to convince him of a deal before the end of the summer window as he is yet to find a new club.

Luka Jovic is also on the books of Real Madrid but he has lacked playing time and that is enough to convince hi of a move.

EPL: Will Man United still move in for Bournemouth duo?

Man United have been linked with the signature of Bournemouth stars David Brook and Josh King but there is yet to be any development on their interest with few days left to the end of the summer transfer window.

It has been a very long summer transfer window for the Red Devils for failing to secure the services of most of their targets. Ajax star Donny van de Beek is the only major signing made by Man United this summer window despite being linked with a long list of names.

However, the Manchester Evening News report that it is unlikely for the Red Devils to sign Josh King and David Brooks especially now that they are desperate to conclude a deal before the summer transfer window.

David Brooks scored seven goals in 33 appearances for the Cherries in the first season but spent was out to injury in most part of the last campaign. That might have limited the number of his suitors and might have convinced the Red Devils not to make a move for him.

The need for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the moment is a winger and a defender as that has been very difficult to come by especially with the rejection of their bid for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

Ismaila Sarr

English Premier League outfit Man United with few days to the end of the summer transfer window strives to find an alternative to Jadon Sancho as they have failed to reach an agreement with Borussia Dortmund.

Of the several options available, the Red Devils have made an inquiry about the availability of Senegalese star Ismaila Sarr, according to The Telegraph as the player is heavily linked with a move away from Watford this summer transfer window.

The Telegraph has, therefore, claimed that the Red Devils’ attempt was to secure the service of the winger on loan as they hope to land Jadon Sancho in the future.

However, Man United have been told that the option of a loan deal for Ismaila Sarr will not be accepted as they are only open to part ways with him on a permanent basis for £45 million.

Watford are now relegated from the Premier League but the quality of Ismaila Sarr was never hidden as he gave a good performance in the league to have attracted interest from the Red Devils.

According to Transfermarket, Ismaila Sarr started 23 games for the Hornets and directly contributed to 12 goals (6 goals and 6 assists).

NGolo Kante

The Red Devils can boast of Donny van de Beek, Bruno Fernandes, and Paul Pogba in their midfield and now have a need for a strong defensive midfielder that will help the flair players moving forward, this is the reason why they are being linked with the signature of Chelsea star N’Golo Kante.

N’Golo Kante is already out of favour at Chelsea and has been linked with a move away and Man United are reported to be considering the option.

A report claims the former Leicester City defensive midfielder would have considered a move to the Old Trafford for two reasons but there seems not to be a concrete offer from the Red Devils.

It is reported that a move to Man United would have been possible and easy for the World Cup winner because of his desire to remain in the Premier League.

The second reason for why he would have loved a move to United is the fact that he will be happy to link up with his friend Paul Pogba, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

However, it is unlikely that N’Golo Kante will be leaving the Stamford Bridge as Man United did not make any formal move to snap up his signature while manager Frank Lampard is still interested in having him around.
