Alassane Plea pursuit

Manchester United have been joined by three Premier League clubs in their pursuit of Alassane Plea.

The Borussia Monchengladbach forward scored his ninth goal of the campaign during Saturday evening’s 3-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

And German publication Bild are claiming Arsenal, Tottenham and Leicester are all interested in signing the 27-year-old Frenchman.

Interest from the English trio will come as an unwelcome surprise for executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward who, last week, was claimed to have made initial contact with the player’s representatives.

Harry Kane transfer prediction

Harry Kane won’t join one of Tottenham’s Premier League rivals, according to Tim Sherwood.

“I can’t see Harry Kane leaving Tottenham and going to any other club in the Premier League,” Sherwood said on the Squeaky Bum Time podcast. “Not even Manchester United. That’s just my opinion.

“I think he’d go to Real Madrid or Barcelona or Bayern Munich – I can see him there, yes, if things don’t turn around at Tottenham.”
