Steve McClaren is in the frame to become Leeds’ new manager, according to the Daily Mirror. The paper says the former England boss was in the stands at Elland Road on Saturday and could be a contender for the job after Thomas Christiansen was sacked on Sunday night.

Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Justin Kluivert, the Daily Mirror reports. The club are reportedly in advanced talks with Ajax over the 18-year-old, and are ready to agree a fee of around £10million for the son of former Holland and Barcelona striker Patrick.

Liverpool could move to sign Jack Wilshere if he rejects a new deal at Arsenal, according to the Sun. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is ready to match Wilshere’s current salary if he can land him on a free this summer, the paper reports.

Christian Pulisic in action.

Christian Pulisic is linked with a switch to the Premier League.

Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly looking to sign young Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic. The Daily Mirror says reports in Germany suggest the Premier League duo will join Bayern Munich in the race to sign the 19-year-old United States international.

Leicester reportedly want to replace Riyad Mahrez with Thorgan Hazard. The Sun says reports in Germany suggest the former Blues midfielder, and brother to Eden, is high on their shortlist as they plan for life without Algerian Mahrez.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Mateo Kovacic: Manchester United are reported to be interested in the Real Madrid midfielder. The Manchester Evening News says reports in Spain suggest the club are one of four teams monitoring the 23-year-old, alongside Juventus, Inter Milan and Tottenham.

Andrija Zivkovic: Arsenal are reportedly eyeing up a move for the Benfica star. The Mirror says reports in Portugal have suggested that the Gunners watched the 21-year-old before he moved to Lisbon, and that officials are believed to have tracked his progress ahead of a possible summer move.

Justin Kluivert could soon be joining Mourinho at United.

Talks to bring Ajax youngster Justin Kluivert, son of Dutch legend Patrick, to Manchester United, are reportedly at an advanced stage.

United manager Jose Mourinho was a coach at Barcelona when Kluivert Sr. was a player at the club, and has thus known the younger Kluivert since he was a little boy.

That relationship has meant Mourinho has kept tabs on the 18-year-old’s development, which saw the winger named in the Ajax squad for last year’s Europa League final against United.

Although he was an unused substitute, Mourinho comforted the youngster after his United side beat the Dutchman 2-0 to lift the trophy.

United and Ajax are now reportedly close to agreeing a deal for the youngster, for a fee of £10million plus add-ons. An agreement could be finalised at the end of the season.

Kluivert has made 29 first-team appearances for the Eredivisie side after making his debut last year, and is said to be excited about the prospect of playing in the Premier League.

Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna has joined the Serie A’s bottom team, Benevento, for the rest of the season.

The 34-year-old ex-France international’s deal includes an option for a further year.

A statement on the club’s website on Saturday read: “This morning, at the Caravaggio Sporting Village in Naples, an agreement was reached between Benevento Calcio and footballer Bacary Sagna.

“In the presence of president Oreste Vigorito, the French defender of Senegalese origins signed a contract that binds him to the Giallorossi club until June 30. The deal includes the option for the extension until June 30, 2019. Bacary Sagna will be available to coach Roberto De Zerbi from next week.”

Sagna, who won 65 caps for Les Bleus, has been without a club since leaving Manchester City last summer.

Benevento prop up the rest in Serie A, having collected just seven points from their first 22 games.
