Paper round-up: Man Utd to make new offer for Eagles star

Manchester United are ready to table an improved bid for Crystal Palace youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka, according to the Daily Mirror.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be keen to sign the right-back, with Antonio Valencia having left Old Trafford and Ashley Young seemingly coming to the end of his career.

The Mirror say United are set to offer £50m for Wan-Bissaka and believe Palace could be willing to sell at that price despite valuing him at £60m.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have had a £43m bid for Sampdoria defender Joachim Andersen and midfielder Dennis Praet turned down by the Italian club, who apparently want £49m for the pair, also according to the Mirror.

The Sun say Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham all want AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

Amid reports that Maurizio Sarri is set to leave Chelsea for Juventus, the Daily Express declare that there is a six-man shortlist to replace him as Blues boss.

The men in the frame are said to be Frank Lampard, outgoing Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri, Ajax’s Erik ten Hag, Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo, Watford’s Javi Gracia and England boss Gareth Southgate’s right-hand man Steve Holland, who was previously at Chelsea.

The Express also declare that Chelsea’s target next season will be securing Champions League football again despite the prospect of a transfer ban.

The newspaper say this could count against Derby manager Frank Lampard given the Blues legend’s relative inexperience.

The Sun have picked up on reports in Italy suggesting that Sarri could take Emerson with him from Chelsea to Juventus.

The Daily Mail say Chelsea’s permanent signing of on-loan Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic is in doubt because of Sarri’s expected departure.

And the Express claim Chelsea have made a £62m bid for Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes, although any deal would hinge on the club successfully appealing against the transfer ban.
