According to Sport Mediaset, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic's agent is in London to hold talk with Manchester United over his client's availability. The Serbian was worth €120m this time last year. However, after a poor season, Lazio would 'settle' for 80m for the midfielder.

United, of course, are tied-up with a problem named Paul Pogba. Signing Milinkovic-Savic would spell the end of the Frenchman's second spell at Old Trafford, with both Pogba and agent Mino Raiola itching for a move away.

Rekindling a transfer target really does warm the heart. Following Crystal Palace not returning their calls regarding Wilfried Zaha, Arsenal may have returned their attention to Ryan Fraser. Per the Mirror, Bournemouth would be willing to sell the Scottish winger for around £20m as his contract expires in 12 months.

The winger was signed for just £400,000 from Aberdeen six years ago and is coming off a stellar season. Fraser assisted 17 goals, whilst chipping in with seven himself.
