Man Utd tell Napoli how much they’ll pay for Victor Osimhen

Manchester United have indicated to Napoli they would pay a transfer fee of around €100 million (£84m) for Victor Osimhen.

The Nigerian striker has scored 16 goals in 28 appearances for Napoli this season. He has helped the club become title challengers in Serie A. This form has caught the eye of Premier League sides, including Arsenal and United.

That said, the Red Devils’ bid will probably need the green light from new manager Erik ten Hag first. [La Repubblica – in Italian]

Could Rashford join Arsenal?

The Gunners have registered an interest in signing Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford.

Any return to south London for Wan-Bissaka, however, will depend on incoming Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag. The Dutchman has yet to assess the squad he’s inheriting. [Athletic]
