Man Utd make transfer enquiry for Giovanni Di Lorenzo as Solskjaer eyes Napoli defender as Wan-Bissaka cover – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly made contact with the agent of Napoli right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo ahead of a potential summer swoop.

The 26-year-old only joined the Serie A side from Empoli in a £7million deal last year, but he could already be on the move again following a superb season.

Prior to the coronavirus pandemic suspending the football calendar, the versatile defender had chipped in with two goals and seven assists in 35 games in all competitions.

His performances led to him making his Italy debut in October, and now it has been claimed that the Red Devils are interested in bringing him to Old Trafford.

According to Calcio Napoli 24, United have been in contact with the representative of Di Lorenzo with the club impressed by his versatility.

The fact that the defender can player as a centre-back as well as a left-back makes the player an attractive option.

As of yet, no official approach has been made by United, though Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's club are keen to explore whether he could be tempted in a move to the Premier League.

It has been suggested that Di Lorenzo would be used as cover for Aaron Wan-Bissaka – with the ex-Crystal Palace ace impressing at the Theatre of Dreams following his switch last year.

Though it has been added that Napoli do not want to part ways with the full-back, who has a contract at the club until 2024.



United are set to welcome back Alexis Sanchez to the team after Inter Milan reportedly rejected the chance to sign him on a permanent deal.

But the club are believed to be winning the race to sign England international Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

The Manchester City youth star has been heavily linked with a move worth around £100m, with United ready to hand him the No7 shirt.
