Transfer News Today: Leading Premier League Hitman Wants Manchester United Switch

Man United Could Make Hornets Hitman’s Dream Come True

Manchester United are in the market for a striker and one that is already settled in the Premier League would be ideal. One that has scored 14 goals this season would be even better.

Step forward Odion Ighalo. The Watford striker has been one of the stars of the division this term and while many though he would stay put this January, he has found it hard to hide his desire to play for the Red Devils.

The Nigerian has said it would be impossible to turn down a switch to Old Trafford, citing the old cliché of his boyhood club. If Louis van Gaal is reading, it might be worth making an enquiry.

Klopp Turns To Milan To Solve Defensive Crisis

Defence is the problem area for Jurgen Klopp. He is currently putting his faith in the loveable but erratic figure of Kolo Toure and has even been forced to recall Tiago Ilori from an ill-fated loan spell at Aston Villa.

The latest man to be tipped for a moved to Anfield is Inter centre-half Andrea Ranocchia. At 27 he has a vast amount of experience and 20 Italy caps under his belt.

While he hasn’t exactly dazzled at the San Siro he has still been a part of a squad that has conceded just 11 goals in Serie A and sit top of the table. He would be available for just over £6m and would be a great value addition to Klopp’s options at the back.

Pards To Pip Red Devils To Star Striker

Alan Pardew needs new options up top and his first aim is to gazump Manchester United to the signing of one of the most exciting and in-demand players outside the top-flight.

Fulham’s Mousa Dembele is a wanted man, with pretty much every Premier League side keeping tabs on his availability.

The Cottagers want £12m for the 19-year-old, who has scored nine goals in 20 outings, but the Palace boss believes that he can get his man for around half of that fee. The forward would add some much needed pace and depth to the Eagles frontline and the chance of game time could persuade him to choose London over Manchester.
