Manchester United were reportedly keeping track of Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi when he was representing Kosovo on international duty this month.

The 25-year-old has made a splendid season to his Fenerbahce career with three goals from two appearances and he has also impressed for the national team with goals against England and the Czech Republic during the recent Euro 2020 qualifiers.

According to Aksam, talent-spotters from the Red Devils had monitored the performances of Muriqi, who possesses a genuine aerial threat with his height and physique.

Muriqi was recruited by Fenerbahce from Caykur Rizespor this summer for just £3.1m after an impressive 2018/19 season where he contributed 17 goals across all competitions.

United have been tipped to pursue a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who parted ways with the club before the summer transfer deadline and it remains to be seen whether they are prepared to make a move for Muriqi.

Aside from United, Tottenham Hotspur have also been deemed to be tracking the progress of the marksman with manager Mauricio Pochettino keen on pursuing a specialist back-up striker to Harry Kane.

Chelsea close to agreeing terms with emerging star

England international close to signing new Chelsea contract


Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly on the cusp of signing a new long-term contract with the club after an extended period of negotiations.

The attacker has not featured for the Blues this term due to his recovery from an Achilles injury and he is currently stepping up his fitness while playing for the development squad.

According to The Telegraph, the youngster has already agreed to a five-year contract on wages of £100,000-a-week and the club are now putting finishing touches before announcing the renewal.

The England international has been with the west London side since the age of six. He made his breakthrough during the previous campaign where he contributed five goals and five assists from 24 appearances.

Hudson-Odoi has also represented the England national side on a couple of occasions and he stands a chance of making the Euro 2020 squad next summer, provided he can excel with his performances on his injury comeback.

Arsenal confirm new long-term contract for young midfielder


News » Premier League news » Arsenal news


Arsenal have announced that young midfielder Joe Willock has been handed with a new long-term contract following his impressive showing for the club this season.

The England youth international had a promising pre-season where he was regularly deployed at the heart of the midfield and his performances were sufficient enough to hand him starts in the opening three league games.

In a statement released on the club’s official website, it has now been confirmed that the youngster has been rewarded with a new and improved contract, although the length of the deal remains undisclosed.

Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi seem to have cemented two places in the centre of the park and Willock will certainly face competition for the third midfield role in the presence of Lucas Torreira and Dani Ceballos.

Arsenal will be aiming to secure their first win in three matches when they face Watford on the road this weekend. The Gunners are currently just outside of the top four on goal difference.

James Maddison news

Maddison to Man United?
Football Transfer Centre


Manchester United are reportedly planning to swoop for the services of James Maddison from Leicester City when the season comes to a close.

Maddison has been a top signing for the Foxes since arriving from Norwich City in the summer of 2018 and he has already contributed seven goals and nine assists for the club in the Premier League.

His progress has certainly caught the attention of the Red Devils and The Manchester Evening News claims that they could make an approach for Madisson at the end of the campaign.

United are desperately in the need for a creative midfielder in the ranks but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be forced to wait until next summer to land Maddison, given the Foxes are unlikely to sanction a mid-season sale.

Maddison, who started his career with Coventry City, has been called up to the England national team on a couple of occasions, but on both instances, he has failed to earn any gametime under Gareth Southgate.

Man United considered Pickford move


Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was reportedly a target for Manchester United during the recently-concluded summer transfer window.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to contend with the uncertainty surrounding David de Gea‘s future during the off-season and it had been predicted that he could head for an exit with his contract expiring in the summer of 2020.

However, that was certainly not the case with De Gea staying put but The Athletic claims Pickford was earmarked as a probable replacement for the Spain international.

De Gea has come under criticism from his own supporters for the average performances this year but he has nonetheless retained the trust from his teammates and the head coach.

He has just 11 months remaining on his existing deal with the club but reports indicate they are close to rewarding the shot-stopper with a new and improved contract worth £290,000-a-week.

Manchester United are currently eighth on the league table with five points on the board. They are scheduled to entertain Leicester City at Old Trafford this weekend.
