Man Utd transfer news: Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic and Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer among targets | Soccer News

Manchester United are exploring the possibility of loaning Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic.

United are considering a number of attacking options with two weeks to go, and Pulisic has emerged as a player of interest.

The US captain, who was signed for £57.6million from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019, has fallen down the pecking order at Chelsea and is keen to get more minutes ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

The 23-year-old has been used on the bench in Chelsea’s two Premier League games since the start of the new campaign and started just 13 Premier League appearances last season.

Chelsea are also pursuing a transfer for Everton winger Anthony Gordonwhich would probably further reduce his playing time.

United have made an initial approach for PSV striker Cody Gakpo but any decision on him will likely have to wait until the Dutch club’s Champions League qualification with Rangers is complete next Wednesday.

United are also interested in Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

The club are looking for a goalkeeper to compete with first-choice David de Gea, who made two glaring errors leading to goals in the 4-0 loss at Brentford, and reserve option Tom Heaton.

There is a feeling, however, that Sommer, who has a contract until 2025, would like to be a No.1 amid reported interest from two other Premier League clubs.

The 33-year-old, who has 74 international caps for Switzerland, was part of the team that reached the quarter-finals of the Euros last summer, beating France in the round of 16.
