19 Jul

Here are the top transfer-related stories in Tuesday’s newspapers…

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is chasing Manchester City’s Jason Denayer and Borussia Dortmund’s Matthias Ginter. Wenger believes he can tempt young centre-back Denayer from City as Pep Guardiola pursues a £38m move for Juventus and Italy star Leonardo Bonucci. Ginter, also a central defender, has long been admired by Wenger who has been scouting him since he was a youngster at Freiburg. It is thought the pair would cost between £10m and £12m each.

Manchester City have been warned that they have not yet landed Germany ace Leroy Sane. The Blues have been in pole position all summer to pick up the Schalke winger in a £40million-plus deal. But reports that the deal with the Blues is already done, and personal terms agreed with the player were refuted by Sane’s dad Souleymane. (Manchester Evening News)

Manchester United have delayed announcing their squad numbers – until they have completed the £105m signing of Paul Pogba.
