Chelsea, Arsenal dealt blow as £42m target reveals Man Utd admiration

Reported Chelsea and Manchester United target Hirving Lozano has admitted he is aware of interest from the Premier League.

Mexico winger Hirving Lozano has long been on the radar of the duo and his name was again linked with the English giants over the summer after some eye-catching displays for his country in the World Cup.

Meanwhile Don Balon also claimed Barcelona have been following the 23-year-old for some time, and could try and sign the player in January or next summer if Ousmane Dembele flatters to deceive again this season.

The Spanish outlet also claim Madrid could also make an offer for the Mexican star in January, while Arsenal have also been linked.

“It’s nice English papers talk nicely about me,” Lozano told talkSPORT’s Universe Premier.

“It’s special. Personally I say thanks for the nice words. I always try to improve and give something extra. I will keep on improving.

“I learn a lot from every manager. Every manager passes on something new.

“Mark van Bommel had a great career and you must learn from every manager.

“I liked Manchester United a lot,” he said when asked about who he supported growing up.

“In Spain my favourite team is Barcelona.”

Multiple reports have suggested that PSV are holding out for a figure of around €50million for Lozano, roughly equal to £42m.
