Man Utd step up transfer bid for Arsenal and Liverpool target Dejan Kulusevski


Manchester United have spoken to the agent of Dejan Kulusevski as they prepare another bid for the midfielder amid interest from Arsenal and Liverpool .

That’s according to respected Italian football journalist Nicolo Schira, who says Inter Milan have also met the Parma star’s representative with a view to a New Year deal.

United have already made a bid of 25million euros (£21m) for the 19-year-old, according to Italian source FCInterNews .

But it was knocked back by Kulusevski’s parent club Atalanta, who are said to be holding out for 35m euros (£30m).

Kulusevski has scored three goals in 14 Serie A games on loan at Parma this season, also providing five assists.

The teenager can play anywhere across the midfield, and caught the eye of United scouts while playing for Parma in their 2-0 win over Roma, where Red Devils defender Chris Smalling is on loan.

FCInterNews reports that Liverpool and Juventus are also admirers of Kulusevski and both are considering a summer move.

Arsenal are also believed to be monitoring developments, with Kulusevski having been on their radar since breaking into the Atalanta team two seasons ago.

But Schira says both United and Inter are aiming to scupper their rivals by bidding to sign the player when the January transfer window opens.

Asked about the possibility of a January move, Kulusevski said: “I’m playing well, so it’s normal to write about other clubs, but I don’t think about (a January move) because I have an annual deal with Parma.”

Kulusevski made his debut for Sweden over the recent international break, coming off the bench in a 3-0 victory over the Faroe Islands.
