What the papers say

A new centre-forward is reportedly needed at Old Trafford and the answer might come from St Mary’s, according to the Telegraph. The papers claims Manchester United are looking at Southampton’s Danny Ings, 28, as a target for the summer transfer window. The striker has scored 13 times for the Saints in all competitions this season and only has one year left on his current deal.

The Sun says Chelsea will compete with United for the signing of England winger Jadon Sancho. The Blues will reportedly launch an £80million bid for the 21-year-old winger, who is said to be ready to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer and return to the UK.

United and Arsenal are monitoring European interest in Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, reports the Mirror. The Ligue 1 club have failed to negotiate a new contract with the 18-year-old France international, who the paper says is being courted by Real Madrid. If the Spanish side do not sign him then the Gunners and United are both said to be ready to swoop in.

Liverpool and Arsenal have reportedly been told they will need to offer at least £40m to sign Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma. The Sun reports the 24-year-old midfielder is much sought after and that the Seagulls have instructed clubs they will need to spend big if they want to sign the Mail international.
