James Maddison news

Maddison to United next summer?


Manchester United have reportedly earmarked Leicester City midfielder James Maddison as a top target for next summer’s transfer window.

The Red Devils are said to be eyeing attacking reinforcements next year and Maddison is one of the names that has been constantly linked with the club.

According to The Star, the Mancunian giants are keen on pushing through a transfer deal for Maddison but they may have to wait until the summer with the Foxes reluctant to discuss a mid-season deal.

It is added that the England international won’t come on the cheap for the Red Devils and they are prepared to make a bid of around £80m for his services at the end of the campaign.

Maddison has contributed five goals and three assists for the Foxes in the Premier League. The east Midlands outfit look in a strong position to finish in the top four with a 10-point advantage over fifth-placed Tottenham.

Volland set for Premier League move?


Kevin Volland has emerged as the primary transfer target for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta this January, with the German international forward amongst the club’s monitored players. Volland, who is currently playing for Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, has scored close to 40 goals in over 100 games for his side.

Volland remains one of Germany’s top striking talents and is earmarked as a possible replacement for one of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette should depart the club elsewhere.

The left-footed striker is available for a fee of around 50 million euros and whilst Aubameyang is being monitored by Real Madrid, Lacazette is a surprise target for Barcelona who are seeking a long term successor for Luis Suarez.

Volland has previously hinted that he would like to make a transfer to England or Italy, but it is understood by his agent and advisors that he would prefer to transfer to the Premier League as his style of football would not be suited to Italian football. Volland has two years left on his existing contract.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has heaped praise on Tammy Abraham following his match-winning impact against Crystal Palace over the weekend.

The England international made a tough start against the Eagles as he struggled to gain possession of the ball but he made amends after the break with a calm and collective finish past goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.

Abraham thereafter squandered another chance to find the net but that did not hamper the Blues with Christian Pulisic doubling the advantage in the 79th minute.

Following the game, Lampard revealed that he had offered some advice to Abraham at the interval and he is pleased that the marksman kept on going and found the breakthrough.

“He needed to liven up a bit but if you stick with it then you’ll get your moment and top strikers do. At the moment he’s proved himself to be that this season. The question is can he keep doing it? But what I see from his mentality and desire, I believe he can,” he told Sky Sports.

Abraham’s strike against Palace meant that he became the second youngest player after Arjen Robben to score 10 league goals for the west London giants.

The Blues graduate has been called up by the Three Lions for the forthcoming internationals against Montenegro and Kosovo, and it remains to be seen whether Abraham is handed with his maiden start.

Moussa Dembele topping United’s winter shortlist


Manchester United have reportedly identified Lyon’s Moussa Dembele as the prime transfer target for the 2020 January transfer window.

The Red Devils decided to part ways with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku over the summer and this has left them with limited options in the centre-forward department.

Anthony Martial has struggled with a hamstring concern since the end of August and that has left the Red Devils with just Marcus Rashford as the senior striking option.

The England international did make a strong beginning to the campaign with a brace against Chelsea but he has since struggled to score from open play and has bagged just one goal from the penalty spot.

According to The Mail, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to recruit a new striker in January and Dembele has been earmarked as the leading target for the New Year.

Dembele has made a positive start to the campaign with six goals from just 10 appearances but he has recently found himself starting from the bench for Les Gones.

However, his position could change with the appointment of Rudi Garcia, who has recently replaced Sylvinho as the new head coach. United may require a bid of at least £50m to tempt Les Gones into a sale.

Real Madrid have reportedly earmarked Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling as their prime target for the 2020 summer transfer window.

The England international has been a huge contributor for the Citizens in the past couple of seasons and he has started the current campaign in the same vein of form with five goals from as many league appearances.

According to The Athletic, Los Blancos have held a long-term interest in the former Liverpool graduate and they are prepared to make a renewed approach at the end of the 2019/2020 season.

Still, the Citizens are in a strong position to keep Sterling with nearly four years remaining on his contract and Los Blancos will have to come up with a bid in excess of £100m to persuade the Premier League holders into doing business.

Sterling was an unused substitute during the recent Premier League against Watford where the Citizens romped to a stunning 8-0 win. He could feature against Preston North End in the League Cup third round tomorrow.
