Additions eyed

United ‘want’ to sign West Ham’s Declan Rice this summer along with Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and Chelsea’s attacking midfielder Mason Mount as they look to significantly bolster their ranks ahead of next term, as per a report by Sky Sports. The Red Devils are keen to lure the English trio to Old Trafford to ensure they can close the gap on rivals Manchester City in the near future.

Rice, 24, is also on the radar of fellow top flight side Arsenal with his long-term future at the London Stadium currently up in the air with his contract expiring in June 2024. He has been on the books of the Hammers since he was a youngster and has become their most prized asset over recent years.

Striker update

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen is ‘likely’ to be ‘too expensive’ for United in the next transfer window, as detailed in a report by The Guardian. Ten Hag is in the market for a striker and the Nigeria international has emerged as an option after helping his current club win the Serie A title. However, his price tag may be too much with Chelsea also linked.

The 24-year-old moved to Naples in 2020 having previously been on the books at Wolfsburg, Charleroi and Lille. He has since adapted to life in Italy with absolute ease and has fired 56 goals in 99 games to date.
