Football – Edinson Cavani set for Premier League move

Who’s looking to sign the sensational striker? All the latest gossip from the papers as the transfer window opens in England.

Cavani coming to England: Know who United fancy signing, according to the Express? Edinson Cavani, for £62m – cheap at half the price. Still, they’ll have to compete with Arsenal and Liverpool, who were linked with him before Christmas, with Chelsea ready to nip in at the last minute in true Mourinho style.

Paper Round’s view: Cavani is certainly on his way out of PSG – but whether he heads to England has yet to be established. He may also be persuaded by an approach from a club in Spain.

Gundogan set to sign for United: The Express also reckon that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is en route to Old Trafford. He doesn’t want to stay in Germany but his contract still has another 18 months to run – so Dortmund are prepared to listen to offers. Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool would be interested as well, but United are the frontrunners.

Paper Round’s view: Depends who United manage to shunt out. The 24-year-old could well be one for their long-term future.
