Kalidou Koulibaly

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has backed Manchester United to sign highly rated Napoli centre back Kalidou Koulibaly before the end of the transfer market next month.

In his latest interview via the Daily Star, Ian Wright advised Manchester United to sign the 29-year-old Senegalese international player.

Kalidou Koulibaly is widely regarded as one of the best central defenders in world football.

Manchester City have been strongly linked with the Napoli defender throughout this summer and they are seen as massive favourites to sign him.

Koulibaly is rated at €80m (£73.7m) according to Italian newspaper Cds and Manchester United can easily afford him.

The Red Devils have not been very active in the transfer market this summer with just one signing to show for their troubles. Dutch international Donny Van De Beek is the only arrival at Old Trafford ahead of the season.

Their first match of the new Premier League season for Donny Van De Beek and Manchester United is the home game against Crystal Palace on the 19th of September.

Manchester United paid £40m to sign Donny Van De Beek from Ajax Amsterdam.

Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante and Sergio Reguilon have all been the linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.

Dayot Upamecano

English Premier League outfit Liverpool are not giving up on the signature of German Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano despite the obstacles.

The Red Devils are desperate to land a new defender that will serve as a cover in the coming January winter transfer window as they already lost Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk to injury during the Merseyside derby against Everton. He is out of the season to treat the knee injury.

Dayot Upamecano is one of the top targets for the Merseyside outfit but the fact that he has just signed a new contract with the club that should keep him in Germany until 2023 makes it a little difficult for him to move as soon as in January transfer window.

Man United are also obstacles in the bid by the Premier League title holders to secure the signature of the RB Leipzig defender as they are also keen on his service and have made a bid in the last summer transfer window but were turned down.

Liverpool are being handed a major hope by the Sunday World report which claims that the German Bundesliga outfit are expecting a bid for Dayot Upamecano in January and will be willing to accept about £40 million for his signature.

However, Liverpool are not considering any of the obstacles as they are keen to defend the Premier League title with a solid defence. Dayot Upamecano is known to be a player of high quality that can compete at a higher level.

The fact that Dayot Upamecano can walk into the team and pair Virgil Van Dijk when he fully returns from his long injury spell makes him a good deal for Liverpool to invest in.

Liverpool enjoyed a smooth run in the English Premier League last season to win the title and there is a bid by manager Jurgen Klopp to defend it. They are currently second after a win against Sheffield United on Saturday.

According to ABC, the Borussia Dortmund striker has been attracting interest from several clubs across Europe with Man United also making an attempt to land his signature but he is more determined to join the Spanish La Liga giants by snubbing interests from the English Premier League, including Chelsea.

The 20-year-old is one of the hottest teenagers in Europe as he is attracting interest from several to[p clubs with a move away from the German Bundesliga outfit very likely in the next summer transfer window.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane had hinted earlier that he is a big fan of the 20-year-old and it has been reported that he has held talks with the player’s camp over a possible move as soon as the summer transfer window is opened again.

The Norwegian international found the back of the net 21 times in 24 games for the german Bundesliga outfit and he could be on his way but for a fee of £68 million with his contract expected to run out in 2022.

Real Madrid have identified a number of players including Liverpool target and Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe as possible signings for the summer transfer window as the club prepares for massive recruitment and reshuffling of the team.

However, the West London outfit will have to make move for other targets if they must bring in a new striker next season.

Manager Frank Lampard risks being sacked because of the inconsistent results from his team so far this season. An improvement is highly demanded by the club or he could be forced to leave earlier than expected.
