Manchester United in negotiations to sign Fiorentina star Nikola Milenkovic

Published

on

Manchester United have reportedly opened talks with Fiorentina’s Nikola Milenkovic and are hopeful of agreeing a deal to sign the centre-back for a fee of just £8.5million in the summer transfer window.

Victor Lindelof has failed to convince United’s hierarchy that he’s the long-term solution to partner Harry Maguire at the heart of the defence and the club are intent on strengthening the position in order to boost their title hopes next season.

Sevilla’s Jules Kounde, Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Lille’s Sven Botman have all been linked in recent weeks and Milenkovic represents a far cheaper alternative to those mentioned, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thought to be an admirer.

According to Duncan Castles, speaking on his podcast The Transfer Window, discussions between United and Milenkovic are well underway and the Premier League giants believe they can land the Serbian for €10m (£8.5m).

And while Fiorentina are reluctant to sell Milenkovic for a fee below €15m (£13m), an overall package would still be relatively inexpensive. After all, the 23-year-old is unlikely to be demanding huge wages given he’s currently on a salary of just €1m-a-year in Florence.

Eric Bailly has been stalling over a new deal at Old Trafford and Castles claims United could put the Ivorian up for sale this summer to avoid the risk of losing him on a free transfer in just over a year’s time.

Just last month, Milenkovic revealed that legendary ex-United defender Nemanja Vidic was his hero while growing up.

‘When I was little, Serbian defender Vidic, who played for Manchester United, was my idol,’ he said.

‘He was a very strong defender: I still watch the videos of his highlights today.’

ARSENAL are putting together a shortlist reportedly including  Moussa Dembele as part of their summer overhaul.

Mikel Arteta has hinted at a very busy transfer window at the Emirates following a disappointing campaign.

Last night, SunSport revealed that Hector Bellerin is among the stars on the chopping block.

 

And Alexandre Lacazette, Matteo Guendouzi, David Luiz and more are being prepared for a move.

 

According to the Telegraph, French striker Lacazette could be joined by Eddie Nketiah in leaving this summer, with two stars eyed as replacements.

 

Lyon forward Dembele, 24, has spent the second half of the season on loan at Atletico Madrid but is yet to score for the LaLiga leaders.

 

Still yet to start for his new club, the Frenchman can move for a pre-agreed £30million fee in the summer but his poor form and fitness issues make that an increasingly unlikely option.

Dembele remains under contract at Lyon for another two years yet is reportedly available for around £25m should Atleti let him go.

A slightly cheaper option, at around £15m to £20m, is said to be Celtic star Edouard.

The SPFL runners-up may seek to cash in on the 23-year-old ahead of his contract expiring in 2022.

The striker has hit 21 goals in all competitions for the Glasgow outfit this season.

 

But any Arsenal approach may come up against fierce competition from Leicester, who are also thought to be keen and are set to be able to offer Champions League football next season.

 

The Gunners maintain an outside shot at a Europa League or Europa Conference League finish and travel to high-flying Chelsea on Wednesday.

Arsenal will be listening to offers for a number of players they have transfer listed.

Arsenal are already making preparations for a busy summer transfer window. The club must sell off some players that are surplus to requirement, makeweight and use the funds to buy new or better players.

As per football.london here are the players that have been put up for sale;

 

Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

 

Many other players also face an uncertain future and could be sold to cut the wage bill or generate funds for transfers, these are;

 

Alex Runarsson, David Luiz, Joe Willock, Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Mohamed Elneny.

 

Arsenal’s budget for the transfer window remains unknown but it is likely to be a low budget that will depend on player sales and revenue earnings from competitions, unless the Kroenke’s finally decide to make some cash available for transfers as a result of pressure from the fanbase,

Bernd Leno breaks silence concerning Arsenal future amid talk of summer transfer

Published

on

Bernd Leno has insisted he is still happy at Arsenal despite reports he could leave this summer.

The German goalkeeper has impressed in north London, so much so that Mikel Arteta backed him and sold Emiliano Martinez last summer despite the Argentine impressing last season.

 

But football.london understands Leno is open to leaving Arsenal this summer with the club willing to sell him for the right price. It comes with a number of young prospects in the wings, including Arthur Okonkwo, who is set for a new deal amid interest from a number of top clubs around Europe.

 

The Gunners are also looking at signing loan keeper Mat Ryan on a permanent deal with Alex Runarsson likely to leave on a loan deal ahead of next season

Leno is currently the Gunners’ number one, so it’s not clear who would replace him, but it’s understood Arsenal are open to selling him, even if the player himself does not seem keen to depart.

 

“I am still happy at Arsenal. Arsenal is still a big club, a big name in the world and in the Premier League,” Leno told Sky Sports.

There is nobody in the dressing room who says ‘I want to leave the club, I am not happy here anymore’.

“We still have a good environment at the club and in the dressing room. Of course, at times it was not easy this season, but this is part of football.

It’s not good to feel sorry for ourselves, we need to move forward and change it to a positive as soon as possible.”

 

Arsenal may just shift a number of players who don’t necessarily want to leave this summer with Mikel Arteta clearly needing to improve his squad on the back of a disappointing campaign which will see the Gunners miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years.

 

Leno could be part of that list of outgoings, currently valued at £22.5million by Transfermarkt with his contract due to run until 2023
