    AT THE DOUBLE

    Manchester United are planning at least two more signings this window – as transfer talks continue around the clock.

    The Red Devils are desperate to improve their squad before the October deadline after a tricky start to the season.

    SunSport understands the club are looking to land both Jadon Sancho and Alex Telles within the coming weeks.

    And Solskjaer, chief exec Ed Woodward and transfer guru Matt Judge are in constant discussions to get the deals over the line.

    United are believed to be confident of landing Sancho, with a £90million offer to Borussia Dortmund in the works.

    YOU WON'T 'NNIK HIM

    Southampton are not prepared to loan out Jannik Vestergaard, reports TOM BARCLAY.

    The giant Dane was linked with a temporary switch to West Ham.

    But SunSport understands Saints have had no approach from the Hammers, nor would they consider farming out their 6ft6ins defender anyway.

    Asked if he would be happy with no further additions to his current squad, Ralph Hasenhuttl replied:“No, I wouldn’t but I know we will get players in.

    “Now comes the moment when some good opportunities are coming up maybe for us.

    “The players that were our No1 choices it was not so easy for us to get them but there are some other alternatives where we are still keen.

    “Whether it’s on loan or permanent, I think we know that we need a few. One or two players minimum we must get. Maybe three.”

    JORD'S IN DEMAND

    Jordan Obita is being chased by Derby and Bournemouth, reports TOM BARCLAY.

    The left-back, 26, left Reading in the summer after 19 years at the club – though he did sign a short-term extension to complete last season which was extended due to Covid.

    Obita made 26 appearances for the Royals last term, proving he is over the long-term knee problems that kept him out for nearly two years in the two prior campaigns.

    Watford are also understood to be keen on the former England Under-20 international.

    WE'VE GOT OPTIONS

    Mikel Arteta has responded to reports he wants to sign Jorginho and sell Lucas Torreira.

    The Arsenal manager said: “We are still open to improve our team.

    “We are looking for different options depending on what happens with some of our players here so we are getting prepared just in case we need to do something.”

    'I'VE GROWN UP'

    Gareth Bale has revealed how he dealt with the pressure of Real Madrid's whistling fans.

    The returning Spurs star said: “I just try and play football, that's all I can do and everything else that's said externally is out of my control.

    “As I said, I have no regrets of what I've done, whatever anyone else has said, that's up to them.

    “I know my opinion of myself and my family know exactly what I am, so that's all I'm worried about.

    “Obviously going into a different culture, a different country, I've had to grow up as a person, never mind a footballer.

    “You just learn how to deal with the situations that you're in.

    “Obviously I've been in immense pressure situations. I've had people on the pitch whistling in the stadium to me.”

    TOUCH N'GO

    Chelsea star N'Golo Kante is “open” to reuniting with former boss Antonio Conte at Inter Milan this summer, according to reports.

    But the Italian giants must first raise money through player sales to afford the Blues' £46million asking price.

    Kante and Conte worked together at Stamford Bridge during the latter's two-year reign in West London – winning the Premier League and FA Cup along the way.

    And according to Gazzetta, Conte believes that bringing the Frenchman to Italy could be the final piece in the jigsaw when it comes to ending Juventus' dominance and winning the Serie A title this season.

    Kante, 29, has started both of Chelsea's opening two Premier League matches this term.

    But Inter are confident that the Blues will sell if offered £46m.

    THREE 'N EASY

    Ashley Westwood has signed a new three-year deal at Burnley.

    The midfielder's new contract, will take him past his 33rd birthday at Turf Moor.

    JAD WANTS TO BE RED

    Jadon Sancho is reportedly desperate to link up with England pals Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Mason Greenwood at Manchester United.

    The Borussia Dortmund winger has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer.

    SunSport previously reported that the Red Devils are now set to make a final £90million move for Sancho.

    It is believed the Premier League club will offer £75m up front, with another £15m to be paid in add ons later on.

    According to the Daily Star, United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward hope Sancho’s desperation to join will convince Dortmund to sell up.

    The report adds that the 20-year-old is keen to link up with Rashford, Greenwood and Maguire, who he knows well from England duty.

    SORRY GUYS

    Laurent Koscielny has finally apologised to Arsenal fans a year after his acrimonious exit.

    The former captain was branded disrespectful after tossing away his Gunners shirt when he was unveiled as a Bordeaux player last summer.

    And reflecting on his fallout with fans, Koscielny said: “I had 9 incredible years there, lots of memories with this club.

    “I know that my announcement video at Bordeaux caused a bit of a stir.

    “I want to apologise to the fans for that, I didn't expect it to affect them in the way that it did.”

    CHRIS IS MILAN MAN

    Inter Milan have reportedly identified Chris Smalling as a possible target should Milan Skriniar depart.

    With Tottenham in talks to lure the centre-back away from the San Siro, the Serie A side have targets in mind should they have to replace him.

    Inter are already short at the back after Diego Godin left on a free transfer to Cagliari – further intensifying their need for a new defender.

    According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter’s No1 priority is Fiorentina star Nikola Milenkovic.

    But they state it is unlikely they will be able to prise him away from Florence, with Manchester United outcast Smalling an easier deal to make.

    It has been suggested that the Red Devils are prepared to sell the 30-year-old should they receive a fee in the region of £18million.

    COUNTING THE COST

    Manchester United and Wolves have been handed a boost in their bid to bring in Douglas Costa.

    The two Premier League clubs have been linked with a swoop this transfer window for the 30-year-old Juventus winger.

    It was reported yesterday in Italy that Juve wanted to offer him as part of a deal to bring Ousmane Dembele to Serie A.

    But according to Mundo Deportivo, Barca are not interested in bringing Costa to the Nou Camp.

    It is believed Juve tried to include the same player when they signed Arthur from the Spanish giants.

    WON'T STAND FOR IT

    Neco Williams has put a black image and header on his Twitter account after receiving vile abuse during Liverpool's 7-2 win over Lincoln.

    The Welsh starlet, 19, has emerged as a terrific understudy to right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold in recent months.

    He has also scored his first goal for Ryan Giggs' national side against Bulgaria, where looks a shoo-in for a place at the Euros next summer.

    MESSI DAMNING

    Lionel Messi's comments on Barca are sure to raise eyebrows in the Nou Camp board.

    He clearly is not happy with the way the club is being run and will undoubtedly push through a transfer exit next summer.

    He added on Suarez: “You deserved to be praised for what you are: one of the most important players in the club's history, achieving important things both as a group and individually.

    “And not to get kicked out like they did. But the truth is that at this point nothing surprises me.

    “I wish you all the best in this new challenge. I love you very much, I love you very much. See you soon friend.”

    LOCKED OUT

    Lionel Messi has slammed Barcelona for 'kicking out' Luis Suarez after the striker completed his move to Atletico Madrid.

    And in a highly emotional post put out on Instagram, Messi admitted 'nothing surprises me anymore'.

    Translated, it reads: “I was already getting the idea but today I entered the locker room and the news became real.

    “How difficult it is going to be not to continue sharing the day to day with you, both on the pitch and outside.

    “We will miss them so much. It was many years, many lunches, dinners… many things that will never be forgotten, every day together.

    “It will be strange to see you with another shirt and much more to face you.”

    ALL OR NOTHING

    Arsenal should make a shock move to prise Dele Alli away from rivals Tottenham, club legend Ray Parlour has suggested.

    The ex-Gunner believes his former employers would have to fork out £50million to sign the England international, who has been linked with a move away.

    Amid a reported fallout with Jose Mourinho, the Special One urged the 24-year-old to ‘perform’ in the club’s Europa League third round qualifying tie against KF Shkendija on Thursday.

    Parlour reckons Arsenal should consider a move for Alli as he would bring goals from midfield.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, Parlour said: “I think he would be more of a fit than Jorginho.

    “I’ve always said they’re (Arsenal) lacking goals from midfield. I don’t think Spurs would sell Dele Alli to Arsenal.”

    'FAITH IN THE SQUAD'

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told the media he is focusing on coaching the first team and not on transfers.

    He said: “As I've said so many times I have faith in my players.

    “In football you can't predict too much, but for me we're working on getting better, my focus is solely on the game.

    “I can't think any other way, we need three points now.”

    ALLY OFF

    Aston Villa have announced the departure of Tanzanian striker Ally Samatta with the shortest possible statement.

    It reads: “Ally Samatta has joined Turkish side Fenerbahce.

    “We would like to wish Ally all the best.”

    NOT SO STICKY RICE

    Declan Rice is pushing for a transfer to Chelsea, according to reports.

    But West Ham are insistent they will not sell the England star.

    According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Hammers vice-captain is keen to get a move back to Chelsea.

    There is a suggestion that Rice's agent is already in negotiations with the Stamford Bridge club over a potential move with the two clubs close to beginning talks.

    However, SunSport understands there still has been no official bid put in from any club for the Three Lions international as of yet.

    Rice, 21, was released by the Blues at the age of 14 before making the switch across London, where he has made 111 first-team appearances.

    WATCH OUT FOR KANE EXIT

    Harry Kane will QUIT Tottenham at the end of the season if Jose Mourinho fails to deliver a trophy, Glenn Hoddle has warned.

    Hoddle has told The Gary Newbon Sport Show on Punching.TV: “Harry Kane needs a bit of silverware at the end of this season if he's going to stay.

    “I think Gareth Bale's come to win trophies for Tottenham. I think Son is another one who wants to win something for Tottenham.

    “There's a lot of players there who put in a lot of hard work building Tottenham up in the last four or five years.

    “They've got to the Champions League final, but they haven't won anything.

    “They haven't got anything to show for the work that has been put in and it's a make or break season for them.”

    LYON CONFIRM AOUAR TALKS

    Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has once again confirmed Arsenal are in talks to sign Houssem Aouar.

    But in a blow for the Gunners, he stated the £54million-rated playmaker could remain with the Ligue 1 outfit due to the North Londoners struggling to afford him.

    Aulas, 71, stressed last week that Mikel Arteta’s side didn’t have the funds to sign the 22-year-old, and he has again echoed similar thoughts.

    Speaking to Le Progres via GFFN about Arsenal’s pursuit of Aouar, he said: “Financially, Arsenal are like everyone else (in a tricky spot).

    “And Houssem could say to himself that the best thing would be to stay with us.”

    Arsenal are desperately trying to raise cash in order to bring Aouar to the Emirates.

    S-AIN'T OUT OF OUR REACH

    Southampton have entered the race for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

    But Ralph Hasenhuttl faces some competition to bring in the 24-year-old with another SEVEN clubs sniffing around.

    Loftus-Cheek has fallen way down Frank Lampard's pecking order and is said to be considering his future.

    Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount are all ahead of Loftus-Cheek in the pecking order

    And according to The Athletic, Southampton want to bring him down to the south coast on loan.

    It's not surprising Southampton are looking for additions having lost their opening two games of the Premier League season.

    PICKED OFF

    Everton are lining up Manchester United’s Sergio Romero — heaping pressure on Jordan Pickford.

    Keeper Romero, 33, wants out after the return of Dean Henderson from a loan at Sheffield United.

    It is believed Carlo Ancelotti’s Toffees have made contact with intermediaries and held talks over a deal for Man Utd's Argentina stopper.

    Pickford is under fire following his double cock-up in Everton’s 5-2 Carabao Cup win over Fleetwood on Wednesday, although boss Ancelotti defended him.

    It is the latest in a number of mistakes the England goalkeeper, 26, has made in the last 12 months.

    UTD'S JAD DASH

    Manchester United are reportedly set to make a final £90million move for Jadon Sancho.

    The Borussia Dortmund winger has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer.

    And now, according to The Mirror, United supremo Ed Woodward will come in with a final 'take-it-or-leave-it offer'.

    It is believed the Premier League club will offer £75m up front, with another £15m to be paid in add ons later on.

    After months of wrangling, United will not budge from this latest, structured deal but are said to be 'confident' of finally landing their man.

    This is despite Dortmund's head of football Sebastian Kehl saying earlier in the week that the 20-year-old would STAY in Germany.
