News Britannia: Liverpool switch left-back targets

23 June at 13:27

Liverpool are reportedly interested in a move for Atletico Mineiro left-back Douglas Santos after after being priced out of a move for  Ben ChilwellGlobo Esporte claim the Reds have “asked about” the 22-year-old full-back, who is also being chased by Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Valencia. Douglas is believed to be valued at £7.7million and Liverpool would rather pay that than the £10million-plus they are being quoted for Leicester starlet Chilwell. The Liverpool Echo reports Liverpool are ready to end their interest in Chilwell as they believe the champions’ valuation of the 19-year-old is too far away from what the Reds are prepared to pay. And now left-back Santos, who joined Mineiro from Udinese in July 2015 for £2.3million, is the club’s new target although he is under contract with the Brazilian side until the summer of 2018.

Wales and Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey is a transfer target for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, according to a report on Thursday.
The Sun claim Mourinho has targeted the Arsenal midfielder as a contingency plan should United not be able to persuade Borussia Dortmund sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The report claims the Wales star is rated in the £50million bracket.
