Prem trio eye non league talent
Crystal Palace, Wolves and Brentford are eyeing Bromley midfielder Ben Krauhaus.
SunSport understands ten clubs including Leicester, Norwich, Cardiff, Hull and Oxford all sent scouts to watch Krauhaus score twice in last Saturday’s 5-1 win over Ebbsfleet.
The 19-year-old academy graduate has caught the eye and helped non-league Bromley into second spot in the National League behind leaders Chesterfield.
With spies galore visiting Hayes Lane, the club are braced for bids in the current transfer window for the central midfielder.
Man Utd target Chelsea flop
Manchester United are considering a shock move for former Chelsea forward Timo Werner, according to The Mirror.
The Germany international had mixed success at Chelsea, whom he left to rejoin RB Leipzig in the summer of 2022.
Werner has only scored two goals in 14 appearances in all competitions this term, but United still think he could do a job in Manchester.
Birmingham plot Wayne Rooney replacement
Twenty candidates are in the running to be Birmingham’s new manager following the sacking of Wayne Rooney.
The Blues axed the Manchester United legend after he won just two matches in 15 games.
Ex-Sunderland boss Tony Mowbray is set for talks later this week, claim the Daily Mail.
Reports also suggest that Frank Lampard is in the running.
He has a large enough profile to appeal to US owners Knighthead but it is unclear whether the Chelsea legend would want the job.
Man Utd explain Reguilon loan ending
Manchester United have revealed why they cut short Sergio Reguilon’s loan from Tottenham.
He played just 12 games for Erik ten Hag’s men and made little impact at Old Trafford.
And with Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia set to return soon from their respective injuries, they do not feel Reguilon would be given sufficient game time during the second half of the campaign.
A club statement read: “Sergio fulfilled the role he was brought in for: to provide cover for Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia while both were out with long-term injuries.
“While Luke has missed the past two games with a minor injury, the England international is expected back soon. Tyrell, meanwhile, is getting closer to a return from his knee injury.
“The versatile Diogo Dalot can also provide further cover at left-back.
“With fewer games in the second half of the season and injured players returning, there will be less opportunity for Sergio to play.
“It was decided it was in the best interests of all parties for Reguilon to return to Spurs.”
Bayern plot move for United target
Bayern Munich are reportedly lining up a move for Manchester United target Serhou Guirassy.
There has been a host of speculation surrounding Guirassy’s future in recent weeks, with Manchester United said to be exploring the possibility of bringing him to Old Trafford during the January transfer window.
Meanwhile, both Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan are thought to be keen on a player who has a £15.1million release clause in his contract at Stuttgart despite only joining the club on a permanent basis last summer.
According to Bild, Bayern are huge admirers of Guirassy and are planning to make a move for him at the end of the 2023-24 campaign.
Tottenham eye Serie A defender
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly planning to submit a fresh proposal to sign Genoa star Radu Dragusin, as per the transfer journalist Rudy Galetti.
A few names have been mentioned as potential targets for the North London club with Jean-Clair Todibo being among them, but Dragusin has emerged as the primary option in recent times.
It has previously been reported that Tottenham have already opened formal talks with Genoa to sign Dragusin and they have already agreed personal terms with the Romanian.
It has also been suggested that Genoa want a fee of at least £26m to sell their star man but Spurs launched an opening offer of around £20m. However, the Serie A side rejected that proposal.
