Victor Osimhen to Manchester United

Manchester United have made Victor Osimhen their priority signing this summer.

That’s according to French publication Le10 Sport, who claim Ed Woodward and co. are desperate to lure the Nigeria international to Old Trafford.

Osimhen, 21, has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence with Lille having netted 18 goals in 38 appearances since his £10million arrival from Charleroi in July 2019.

United think £70million-rated Osimhen has “all the qualities” to succeed in the Premier League having monitored his progress for several months.

Chelsea targets

Chelsea are eager to sign two of England’s brightest talents.

Frank Lampard’s side failed to make a single addition in the January transfer window despite their two-year ban being halved by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Now, the Blues are looking to bolster their ranks with West Ham midfielder Declan Rice (£60m) and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell (£80m) on their radar.

Sky Sports claim Chelsea want to sign Rice, 21, and are hopeful that his close friend Mason Mount could help them get the deal over the line.

Goal have also reported that the Blues have been tracking Chilwell, 23, for a number of months and believe they are well-positioned to secure his signature.

Arsenal vs Liverpool

Liverpool and Arsenal have found themselves searching for the same type of player this summer as they hope to sign a left-footed centre-back with scouts from both clubs sent to cast their eyes over French wonderkid Evan Ndicka.

Prior to the suspension of all of Europe’s top domestic league, Liverpool and Arsenal watched several of Ndicka’s matches for Frankfurt, according to Sky Sports.

The 20-year-old has been in and out of the Bundesliga side’s back line ever since breaking through into the first team last year.

The France under-21 international is a rare breed as the majority of central defenders are right-footed, but the ability to play on the left side is seen as a bonus which attracts the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool.

Aaron Ramsdale transfer

Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa is interested in signing goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale from Bournemouth.

But, the Whites face stern competition from Premier League giants Tottenham and Chelsea.

Leeds have been tipped to sign a new No 1 this summer, after Kiko Casilla’s suspension.

The former Real Madrid goalkeeper was ordered to serve a lengthy ban, after being found guilty of racially abusing Charlton Athletic’s Jonathan Leko.

But, Leeds are now interested in signing Bournemouth star Ramsdale, according to Football Insider.

Emerson urged

Chelsea defender Emerson has been tipped to leave the Blues during the summer transfer window, amid reports suggesting Inter Milan and Juventus are interested.

And former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has urged him to make the move to Serie A.

Emerson has fallen out of favour in recent months after a decent start to the season.

“It would be nice if Emerson Palmieri, who hasn’t played much for Chelsea, could come and play in Italy,” Mancini told Gazetta Dello Sport.

Jude Bellingham pursuit

Manchester United still have a chance of signing Jude Bellingham.

That’s according to German publication Kicker, who claim Borussia Dortmund have frozen all transfer activity during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Bundesliga outfit are considered firm-favourites to sign the Birmingham teenager, who has burst onto the scene in the Championship this season.

But Ed Woodward and co. could still have an opportunity to lure the 16-year-old to Old Trafford using their new emphasis on youth.

Duje Caleta-Car watched

Manchester United are monitoring Croatia international Duje Caleta-Car.

That’s according to 90min, who claim Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have watched the Marseille centre-back on several occasions this season.

Caleta-Car, who has been compared to Nemanja Vidic, joined Marseille from Red Bull Salzburg in July 2018 for £16million and has since proved a fantastic acquisition.

His displays have seen United and rivals Manchester City travel to assess his progress with ‘overwhelmingly positive’ reviews from club representatives.
