Arsenal and Chelsea are vying to sign a versatile Manchester United star, while Liverpool are confident of beating their rivals to a £10million left-back, according to Sunday’s papers.
ARSENAL AND CHELSEA BATTLE FOR LINGARD
Chelsea will battle Arsenal to land Manchester United star Jesse Lingard, according to reports on Sunday.
It’s claimed United could allow the England winger to leave this summer and Antonio Conte is leading the race to sign him.
The Sun on Sunday claims Lingard’s ability to play as both a wing-back and a forward make him an attractive prospect for Conte, who is looking for cover for Victor Moses, who was recently rewarded with a new deal.
Lingard has just over a season left on his current Manchester United deal and it’s felt an offer of £12m could persuaded United to sell if the player’s new deal fails to be signed.
Arsenal have also been tracking his progress and could move for Lingard if they lose Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the summer, though Arsene Wenger has stated his belief that the player is happy at the Emirates.
LIVERPOOL CONFIDENT OF SESSEGNON DEAL
Jurgen Klopp is ‘confident’ of taking Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon to Liverpool in a £10m deal this summer, according to multiple reports on Sunday.
Both The Sun on Sunday and the Daily Star Sunday claim Klopp is expected to land the 16-year-old this summer, with the player seen as a long-term solution to their left-back issues.
The Reds have been forced to play James Milner there this season, with Klopp recently admitting his confusion over the versatile star’s best position these days.
Sessegnon, however, looks set to move to Anfield with the papers suggesting the Reds will beat both Everton and Tottenham to his signature.
Sessegnon scored twice on Saturday as Fulham continued their late bid to reach the Championship play-offs with victory at table-toppers Newcastle.
