EPL: Man United to challenge Tottenham in late swoop for Josh King


TalkSport is reporting that Man United are making efforts to challenge North London club Tottenham in a late swoop for Bournemouth striker Josh King.

Josh King has been on the radar of the North London outfit for the past weeks with considerations of landing him before the summer transfer window ends but with the interest coming from Man United, they could be set for another transfer battle.

Manager Jose Mourinho is very keen to bring another striker to the club to give a backup to Harry Kane with Josh King as one of the options available for him.

Man United are still hoping to snap up the signature of England international winger Jadon Sancho but from all indications, they will not be able to convince German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund to reduce their price tag and that means they must face other alternatives.

talkSPORT transfer guru and south coast football expert Alex Crook, when he joined Jim White on air on Monday for the latest gossip, hinted that Josh King could seal a move back to the Premier League with Tottenham and Man United as possible destinations.

It is hoped that the Red Devils will be able to beat Tottenham by convincing Josh King of a move to the Old Trafford, ahead of White Hart Lane.
