According to multiple reports, Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in signing Matthijs de Ligt from Bayern Munich this summer.
The Dutchman joined the Bundesliga winners in July 2022 after leaving Italian giants Juventus, and he is presently in the midst of his second season there.
De Ligt has made a total of 55 competitive appearances since moving to Bavaria, contributing four goals in the process. At the conclusion of the current season, Bayern may choose to sell Dutch defender, according to German publication Bild.
According to the article, De Ligt does not get along well with Thomas Tuchel, the manager of Bayern, who prefers to start centre backs Kim Min-jae and Dayot Upamecano.
De Ligt has finally been forced to settle for 12 competitive appearances this season, including just four starts in the Bundesliga, due to selection decisions and injury concerns. De Ligt is aiming to establish a reliable run in the Bayern backline, since Kim is away with South Korea at the Asian Cup.
According to reports, Lyon and Everton are making headway in their negotiations to take over Arnaut Danjuma’s loan.
Since coming to Everton on loan from Villarreal in the summer, the Dutch winger has been on the periphery of the team, and since Dwight McNeil and Jack Harrison recovered from injuries sustained early in the season, he has almost seen no playing time.
With McNeil sidelined due to injury, Danjuma began the Toffees’ 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last weekend, marking his first Premier League appearance in nearly four months. According to the article, Lyon is open to an option-to-buy agreement provided the price does not exceed €15 million.
