Paper round-up: Dier wants to join United, Express claim

Eric Dier wants to leave Tottenham for Manchester United, the Daily Express claim.

It comes after months of reports suggesting that United boss Jose Mourinho is keen to sign Dier this summer.

The Express reckon Tottenham value Dier at £60m and that United value him at £40m but believe Spurs chairman Daniel Levy could be willing to sell for £50m.

The Daily Mirror earlier claimed that Mourinho wants United make a £60m bid for Dier.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are looking to sign Kelechi Iheanacho from Manchester City as part of a deal to take Kyle Walker to the Etihad Stadium, The Sun say.

Leicester are reported to have agreed a £20m fee with City for 20-year-old forward Iheanacho, who has been linked with a number of clubs.

The Sun say City are keen to sign Walker but that talks have stalled because Spurs want £50m for the England defender and that an exchange involving Iheanacho could see the deal go through.

Chelsea are confident they will sign Tiemoue Bakayoko despite speculation that they could miss out on the Monaco midfielder, the Daily Mail say.

The Blues are looking to tie up a deal for the 22-year-old but there have been reports that Manchester United are aiming to snatch him.

The Mail also say Chelsea have held talks with Real Madrid over the prospect of signing full-back Danilo.

Arsenal have entered a race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, again according to The Sun.

The Dutch centre-back has been linked with Chelsea as well as Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Sun say Arsenal are now showing an interest but that the player favours a move to Liverpool.

The Daily Mail say Arsenal are growing increasingly confident that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will stay despite speculation over his future.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is determined to also keep Alexis Sanchez despite reports the Chilean wants to join Manchester City, according to The Independent.

The Daily Mirror reckon Manchester United are looking to beat Chelsea to the signing of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

And the Express claim Celtic’s former Fulham forward Moussa Dembele is wanted by Chelsea and West Ham.
