Manchester United learn the asking price for a rising talent, while Arsenal are linked with a young Spanish midfielder – all in the latest European transfer news.
MAN UTD LEARN KULUSEVSKI ASKING PRICE
Manchester United must be prepared to pay at least €40m if they want to sign on-loan Parma midfielder Dejan Kulusevski, according to a report.
The 19-year-old has announced himself on the European stage this season, having scored four goals and assisted six others in 18 appearances since joining from Atalanta for the campaign.
United have been heavily linked with a move for the Sweden international in recent weeks and, according to FCInterNews, the Red Devils have been told what they must stump up if they remain keen on his services.
The report adds that this latest development arrives after a meeting on Tuesday in which Atalanta chiefs decided to put Kulusevski up for sale and so discussed his worth in the January transfer window.
It is also claimed that the player has interest from other clubs in Italy, with Inter Milan and Juventus both said to be monitoring the midfielder’s progress.
However, Inter are said to hold a significant advantage given that Juve are only prepared to make an approach for him in the summer.
