Fallen Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly preparing a double swoop ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in the next few hours.

According to the publication from Fox Sports, Manchester United are plotting a January transfer for both Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes and Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes has fallen out of favor with manager Bruno Lage and recent reports claimed that his representatives were in the United Kingdom to wrap up a $64m deal for the player.

According to Sky Sports, representatives of Gedson Fernandes were in England to secure his transfer to Manchester United who are also interested in a deal for Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin who is rated at around $94m at the moment.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored eight goals in 18 league games this term including three goals in the two matches under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Gedson Fernandes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are just two of the players that are on the radar of Manchester United.

The Red Devils recently missed out on Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland who has agreed a deal to join Borussia Dortmund as from the New Year.

Manchester United are also keen on signing a creative midfielder like Christian Eriksen who plays for Tottenham Hotspur.
