Manchester United mull bid for Liverpool star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Man City transfer target has £ 50m asking price, Newcastle continue goalkeeper search leaving Dean Henderson in limbo


Alex Crook gives us the inside info on potential Premier League dealings this summer in his latest Transfer Notebook…

Manchester United are contemplating a surprise raid on bitter rivals Liverpool for want-away Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Oxlade-Chamberlain could make a rare transfer between Liverpool and Manchester United

Oxlade-Chamberlain is desperate to leave Anfield having started only nine Premier League games last season.

United are short of numbers in midfield after Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic were all allowed to leave as free agents.

If Liverpool are willing to accept a knockdown fee of £ 10m, the Red Devils would be seriously interested in bringing Oxlade-Chamberlain across the north west.

The 28-year-old is also admired by old club Southampton but the south coast side have concerns over his injury records and wage demands.

Spain star given huge pricetag to dissuade Man City

Brighton have slapped a £ 50m pricetag on Manchester City target Marc Cucurella.

City have identified Cucurella, 23, as a possible solution to their problematic left-back area.

The Seagulls’ valuation of the former Barcelona youngster may seem excessive, but owner Tony Bloom is a notoriously ruthless negotiator.

Former professional poker player Bloom believes Cucurella is worth just as much as England defender Ben White, who Brighton sold to Arsenal for £ 50m only last summer.

Chelsea are also keeping tabs on Cucurella but are unlikely to pay big money with Ben Chilwell edging back to full fitness.

Toon continue goalkeeper hunt as Man United star enters limbo

Newcastle are on the trail of Switzerland goalkeeper Yann Sommer after cooling their interest in Dean Henderson.

The Magpies want a ball-playing ‘keeper to replace Martin Dubravka as their number one.

Sommer’s contract at German club Borussia Dortmund expires next summer and the 33-year-old is reluctant to sign a new deal.

Newcastle have held talks with Henderson’s agent but are unlikely to follow up their interest, leaving the Manchester United star in limbo.

Henderson knows he needs game-time to force his way into England’s World Cup squad.

But with David de Gea under consideration to be United’s new captain, he will be relying on the Spaniard picking up an injury to break into United’s Premier League line-up.

Man City to include buy-back on Irish sensation

Gavin Bazunu’s impending move from Manchester City to Southampton will include the champions having the option to buy him back for a significant fee.

Bazunu, 20, is on the brink of competing a £ 10m switch to the south coast after rejecting a new £ 45,000-a-week deal at the Etihad.

City are reluctant to lose the Republic of Ireland international and talkSPORT has been told there was no chance of them agreeing to sell without the safety-net of a buyback clause.

It is believed the buy-back agreement will be similar to the £ 40m Saints agreed with Chelsea when they bought full-back Tino Livramento a year ago.

Former Portsmouth loanee Bazunu has been promised he will be number one at St Mary’s following Fraser Forster’s departure to Tottenham.
