Manchester United and Arsenal face a battle with Inter to sign a PSG winger, while the Gunners also made a summer move for a Napoli star according to Friday’s Euro papers.
INTER EYE ARSENAL, MAN UTD TARGET
Inter boss Spalletti is reportedly looking to add some more depth in his attacking department.
Despite the summer signing of Yann Karamoh, the former Roma boss wishes to add a back-up option to Ivan Perisic, Antonio Candreva and Mauro Icardi, Calciomercato.com reports.
As a result, the Nerazzurri have already begun the hunt for a new winger in the January window and PSG man Lucas Moura is in their sights.
Calciomercato.com claim that the Serie A giants will make an attempt to sign the Brazilian in January due to the fact the Brazilian faces reduced playing time with PSG.
Arsenal and Manchester United are also interested in signing the Brazilian, according to several reports in England.
Arsene Wenger may be in the market for a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, while Jose Mourinho’s summer pursuit of Ivan Perisic showed that he wants another winger in his squad.
PREM PAIR TO BATTLE FOR VALENCIA STARLET
Manchester United and Arsenal are reportedly ready to do battle for a 15-year-old Valencia wonderkid.
Spanish youngster Ferhat Cogalan has been attracting interest throughout Europe, with Galatasaray and AC Milan also keen on the talented attacker.
Both United and Arsenal want to sign Cogalan before he pens a professional contract with Valencia and that the race is very much on to seal his signature, according to Turkish Football
Cogalan first came to United’s attention when former Old Trafford star Phil Neville recommended him from his time coaching at the La Liga club.
The player’s father, Sedat Cogalan, actually travelled to Manchester to have talks with United and was quoted as saying: “We’re in no hurry because Ferhat is in contract with Valencia until 2021.
“But when a club like Manchester United invites us, it is logical that we study the proposal, right?”
