Premier League champions Manchester City have identified a replacement for number one defensive target Harry Maguire who plays his club football for Leicester City.

This is according to the latest reports from the French media which claimed that Manchester City have identified a possible replacement for Harry Maguire if Leicester City continues to play hardball over the English centre back.

Manchester City and Manchester United are the interested clubs in Maguire who has a £90m price tag as confirmed by Leicester City via The Telegraph.

According to the specific report from trusted French transfer news portal L’Equipe, Manchester City have set their sights on Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake who represents a cheaper option than the aforementioned Maguire.

The former Chelsea defender has been in very good form for Bournemouth since joining them in 2017.

He was signed from Chelsea in a £20m deal and Manchester City will have to pay more than twice of that amount to secure his signing this summer.

Nathan Ake had earlier impressed a great deal during his loan spell at Bournemouth during the first half of the 2016/17 season before being recalled by Chelsea and that convinced the Cherries to splash the cash on the Dutch international player.

He has 117 appearances under his belt in the Premier League.

Manchester United have targeted young players in the transfer market though it has not stopped them from pursuing a move for the experienced ones.

Manchester United have made a transfer decision on the future of Alexis Sanchez at the club.

Alexis Sanchez is widely regarded as an expensive flop at Manchester United after the Chilean international failed to live up to expectations at the Theatre of Dreams.

Manchester United fought hard to secure his signing ahead of city rivals Manchester City and he was given a big contract.

Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United from North Londoners Arsenal in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the other direction.

He was given a big contract worth £500, 000 in weekly salary when he joined in January 2018.

Alexis Sanchez has a four-and-a-half year contract until the 2021/22 season.

After 18 months of inconsistent displays for Manchester United, Alexis Sanchez was sent out on loan to Inter Milan last summer for the current season.

The Chilean international has had an injury-hit time at Inter Milan since joining and his fitness was recently called into question by manager Antonio Conte.

On his future, an exclusive report from the Daily Star disclosed that Manchester United want Alexis Sanchez back at the club next season and that the Red Devils won’t be open to another loan move to Inter or a permanent transfer.

The new development won’t be music to the ears of Manchester United fans.

Adama Traore

Wolverhampton Wanderers have slapped a £75m asking price on star winger Adama Traore in an attempt to ward off the interest of Premier League table toppers Liverpool and the other interested clubs.

This is according to the publication from SoccerLink which also confirmed the interest of other Premier League teams like Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Adama Traore came through the famed La Masia Academy at Barcelona before Aston Villa swooped for him.

He suffered Premier League relegation at Aston Villa before suffering the same fate on the back of his transfer to Middlesbrough.

Adama Traore signed for Wolves from Middlesbrough at the start of last season and he had a mixed debut campaign at the club.

The winger has taken his game to a new level at Wolves this season and has drawn the praise of both Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and Pep Guardiola at Manchester City who are both regarded as the top two managers in the league.

Adama Traore has scored five goals and provided ten assists in 35 games for Wolves this season in all competitions.

French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are also monitoring his development at the Molineux.

His best appearance of the season came in the 2-0 away win over Manchester City where he scored twice in the last ten minutes of the game.

Thomas Lemar

Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar has again been linked with a move to Premier League giants Arsenal after failing to live up to his price tag in the Spanish La Liga.

According to the various media reports on the European continent, Thomas Lemar is a target for the Gunners as well as other European sides like Tottenham Hotspur and French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

The French World Cup winner has neither scored or assisted any goal in the Spanish La Liga this season despite making 15 appearances.

Thomas Lemar also had no goal output in six group stage games in the Champions League last year.

Atletico Madrid signed him from AS Monaco at the start of the last campaign in a transfer said to be worth around £51.5m.

He came close to signing for the Gunners just months before his Atletico Madrid transfer.

Lemar almost joined Arsenal in the summer of 2017 but the transfer didn’t go through as AS Monaco were unable to sign a replacement in time before that summer’s transfer window ended.

The French winger was seen as a like-for-like signing to replace Alexis Sanchez that summer after Manchester City made a bid to sign the Chilean international.

Possible Arsenal XI with Lemar: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, David Luiz, Pablo Mari, Sead Kolasinac; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Lemar, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gabriel Martinelli.

Ben Chilwell

Three-time European champions Manchester United are plotting a move for Leicester City star Ben Chilwell ahead of this summer according to the widespread media reports in the United Kingdom (UK).

The Metro claimed that the Red Devils have concluded plans to make a summer bid for Ben Chilwell who’s the first choice left-back for the England national team.

Ben Chilwell is on course to be a part of the 23-man England squad to the European Championships this summer.

He has scored one goal and also provided three assists for his team in 19 Premier League matches this term.

Manchester City were interested in signing Ben Chilwell previously but the Premier League champions were not willing to pay the over £50m asking price from the Foxes.

Manchester United have a good relationship with Leicester City and the Red Devils could capitalize on that to secure the signing of Three Lions of England player Ben Chilwell.

The Red Devils signed Harry Maguire from Leicester City at the start of this season in a deal that made him the most expensive defender in the history of the game.

Leicester City received £80m for the transfer of the new Manchester United skipper.

Harry Maguire is a key member of the England squad these days.

Timo Werner

Premier League leaders Liverpool have been ruthless in the English top-flight this season and that ruthlessness could be worse for their opponents if they are able to pull off a deal for RB Leipzig star Timo Werner who has been in red-hot form for his German Bundesliga outfit since last summer.

Liverpool have 16 more points than nearest challengers and Premier League champions Manchester City at the league summit after winning 22 games from 23 Premier League outings.

The Reds are unbeaten in the league this season and they also have a game at hand over the teams around them.

Timo Werner is said to be a key transfer target for Liverpool though a move in this January transfer window is largely unlikely.

The 23-year-old petite German international could leave RB Leipzig for Liverpool in the summer as that period is more feasible with the player reluctant to leave his current club in the middle of the season.

Recent reports have claimed that the player has agreed a deal for him to join Liverpool this summer ahead of Chelsea who are also in the mix to sign him.

Liverpool XI with Werner: Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Fabinho; Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino; Timo Werner.
