United still in talks for Maguire


Manchester United are reportedly continuing their negotiations to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City despite the Foxes being reluctant to reduce their £80m price tag for the defender.

The England international has been identified as the prime target to strengthen the central defensive department at United but so far, the club have failed to reach an agreement in terms of the transfer fee.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are unwilling to offer more than £70m for the centre-back but they remain hopeful of convincing the Foxes into a sale.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has recently indicated that the club find themselves under no pressure to sell the 26-year-old, though their hand may be forced, if the defender pushes for a departure.

Aside from Maguire, the Red Devils have been fancied to sign Bruno Fernandes from Sporting and reports have indicated that they are close to agreeing a deal worth £64m for the Portugal international.

Leicester City enter race to sign Lewis Dunk

Dunk set for Premier League transfer?
Football Transfer Centre


Leicester City have approached Brighton and Hove Albion regarding a transfer move for impressive centre back Lewis Dunk. The player, who has been linked with a move to the Foxes as a potential replacement for Man Utd bound Harry Maguire, has 1 cap for England and is hopeful a transfer elsewhere will boost his own international prospects.

With Harry Maguire seemingly headed to Man Utd away from Leicester, Foxes’ manager Brendan Rodgers is seeking a move for Dunk as a replacement for the England centre back.

Dunk has played over 240 times for Brighton since coming through the ranks in 2010 and is considered one of the club’s best players. The 27-year-old has remained fiercely loyal to his current team but some senior players at the club admit that the player is now likely to depart.

Dunk is valued by his team in the region of £40 million.

Veteran striker Glenn Murray told reporters that he hopes Dunk will decide to stay with the team:  “As far as any of our better players are concerned, they are the ones you want to keep. But football is a business as well as a sport and I think everyone has got their price.

“As far as the players are concerned, we all want Lewis to stay and lead us into another Premier League campaign.”

Wolves to sign Sami Khedira?

Wolves to sign Sami Khedira?


Sami Khedira news


Wolves are chasing Juventus’ midfielder Sami Khedira on a reported 15 million euro transfer move. The German international, who won the World Cup in Brazil in 2012, is reportedly ready to move to England in search of regular first-team football.

The 32-year-old has a deal with the Turin side until 2021 and has been informed by newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri that he is free to leave the club.

The former Real Madrid star, who has been with Juventus since 2015, is seeking regular first-team football after the arrival of Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal.

Last season Khedira played in just 10 Serie A games, scoring two goals, and was mainly restricted to a bit part role at the club due to the emergence of Emre Can.

It is understood that Khedira is frustrated with a lack of game time at Juve and has instructed his agent to find him a new club prior to the end of the transfer window, with also reported interest from China and also in his homeland Germany, with Werder Bremen and former club VfB Stuttgart interested.
