The Guardian reports Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has <strong>Jadon Sancho </strong>top of his wish-list this summer. The paper says United want to sign Pau Torres, Declan Rice and Harry Kane but their number one target is Sancho, the 21-year-old England forward who has been told Borussia Dortmund will not stop him from leaving.

What the papers say

Antonio Conte’s vacating of the top job at Inter Milan could reportedly play in Arsenal’s favour. The Express reports the Italian side’s significant financial problems may prompt it to offload valuable players including attacking-minded 22-year-old Achraf Hakimi, who is considered the man to fix the Gunners’ issues at right-back.
