Man Utd ‘already targeting four summer transfers for rebuild including move for Brighton sensation Evan Ferguson’ | Englishheadline


EVAN FERGUSON is one of four players Manchester United have identified for their transfer shopping list next summer, reports suggest.

United brought in seven new faces to their squad over the summer window, including two loan deals and a free transfer for Jonny Evans.

However, Erik ten Hag‘s rebuild project is still far from done at Old Trafford.

Consequently, he is already eyeing a number of signings to bolster the squad next summer.

One of those stars is Brighton wonderkid and self-professed Red Devils and Wayne Rooney fan Ferguson.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the 18-year-old – who has netted four goals in as many games this season – is being monitored by United.

Despite signing a contract with the Seagulls until 2028, sources believe a transfer could be completed in 12 months time, which would add to the firepower of £72million ace Rasmus Hojlund.

However, attack is not the club’s only priority, with a full-back, centre-back and central midfielder also on the list.

Defensive recruits have led United down the path of Bayer Leverkusen duo Jeremie Frimpong and Edmond Tapsoba.

Frimpong, 22, has proven himself to be an effective full-back after transitioning from a winger, with a strong attacking right-back seen as desirable to the way United want to play.

In the case of 24-year-old Tapsoba, he represents an athletic central defender who is also an excellent distributor.

The fourth signing they want has technically already joined the club in the form of Sofyan Amrabat.

Amrabat, 27, joined on loan from Fiorentina with United having a £21.5m option to buy inserted into the deal.

The report adds there are a number of outgoings expected next year.

Among the names tipped for the exit door are Anthony Martial, Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire.

Jadon Sancho‘s future has also been left shrouded in doubt following a face-to-face meeting with Ten Hag on Monday – though he was seen alongside Aaron Wan-Bissaka following his public outburst.

Ahead of the Brighton game on Saturday, United are set to be without a number of first choice stars.

These include Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw, Mason Mount and most recently Antony, who will not return to the club until further notice amid abuse allegations against him.
