Man Utd table shock £45m bid for rising Italian star as they are dealt seismic Jadon Sancho blow and Leeds United get serious over Wales ace

There is just a week left for Premier League clubs to sign overseas players, meaning time is running out for deals to be completed.

As always as the clock ticks down towards deadline day, there is plenty of gossip about.

With that in mind, here is the latest from the Premier League rumour mill.

Man Utd offer £45m for Chiesa

Manchester United have tabled a bid of £45m to sign rising Italian star Federico Chiesa, according to reports in Italy.

The 22-year-old Italy international is thought to want a move away from Fiorentina. He was offered to Juventus last year but the move was reportedly blocked by Rocco Commiso, the Fiorentina president.

In this window, though, it is thought that no Italian club has the funds available to afford a move for the 19-cap Italy winger.

But Corriere Fiorentino report that United have had an offer of £45m rejected because the player believes a move abroad will harm his chances of furthering his international career.

Fiorentina do not want to wait until the last day or two of the transfer window, which shuts on Monday, October 5 at 11pm, and risk being unable to replace him.

Therefore, they have set a deadline of this Friday for the player to secure a move away.

United dealt huge Sancho blow

Manchester United have been dealt a seismic blow in their pursuit of Jadon Sancho after Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus insisted he will stay at the club for another year.

Sancho has been United’s No.1 transfer target this summer, however the two clubs have failed to agree on a price of the player, with Dortmund said to be holding out for around £108m.

However, Reus appears to have hit United with their biggest body blow yet by telling Sky Germany: “It’s very good news for us that he stays for one more year.

“He delivers assists and goals so we get points. He’s very important for us.”

Leeds weigh up James move

The MEN report that Leeds United are weighing up a potential move for Daniel James.

Leeds managing director Angus Kinnear was in attendance at Manchester United’s Carabao Cup win over Luton, where James was an unused substitute.

The Whites are keen to add a winger to their squad before deadline day and, with Manchester United looking to strengthen their own flanks, James could become available.

Wales international James is said to be keen to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his place.

Man United in Sarr enquiry

The Daily Telegraph report that Manchester United have enquired about Ismaila Sarr’s availability at Watford.

With time running out until transfer deadline day, United have lined Sarr up as a cheaper alternative to Jadon Sancho after Liverpool ruled themselves out of the running for the Watford star.

Liverpool were keen on Sarr after his impressive performance against them for Watford back in February.

Yet they baulked at Watford’s £40m asking price – which has freed Sarr up for a potential move to Old Trafford.

Burnley offer £16m for Wales ace Harry Wilson

Harry Wilson’s Liverpool exit appears to be nearing with reports now claiming Burnley have tabled a £16million offer to sign the winger.

The Wales international has been sent out on a number of loan stints over the last few years and has impressed during each spell.

Wilson, 23, enjoyed a stellar stint under Frank Lampard at Derby County two years ago and was also one of Bournemouth’s standout players in their Premier League campaign last term, despite the Cherries failing to avoid relegation.

And while he will have no doubt had designs on returning to Anfield and forcing his way into the first-team reckoning, it appears he is not in Jurgen Klopp’s immediate plans for the first team and, as such, looks likely to leave in the coming days.

The Athletic report that Burnley’s interest is now serious and they have put forward a bid of £12m, with an additional £4m in add-ons, to sign the Welshman.

PSG want Alli loan

Sky Sports report that PSG are only interested in a loan for Dele Alli in this transfer window.

Alli is out of favour at Tottenham Hotspur, having struggled for form despite a brief renaissance at the start of Jose Mourinho’s reign as manager.

Spurs are said to be open to letting Alli leave but PSG are not interested in a permanent deal.

Instead, a loan with an option to buy could well be a move that suits both parties.
