Manchester United have so far only confirmed the arrival of Donny van de Beek from Ajax despite much speculation involving other players around Europe.
Frustration among United supporters is only likely to grow stronger now that Liverpool reportedly are close to signing Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich and Gareth Bale is close rejoining Spurs – two players who had previously been linked with moves to Old Trafford.
With Chelsea spending big money in this transfer window, United will be prioritising some late transfer activity.
Solskjaer could arguably do with two or three more signings through the door before the window shuts if they are to have any chance of silverware this season.
Here is today’s Manchester United transfer round-up.
Perisic linked with shock United transfer
Inter winger Ivan Perisic could be part of a swap deal that sees Chris Smalling move the other way.
According to FcInterNews, the Croatia international is viewed as a dispensable player by Antonio Conte but a swap move includes a number of different variables.
The report states that any move for Smalling will only be done on the basis that Milan Skriniar leaves the San Siro before the end of the transfer window.
In the event that he does leave, Inter could target United’s Smalling and subsequently offer Perisic as part of the deal to secure their transfer target.
United target highly-rated Serie A youngster
United are believed to be interested in securing the services of Atalanta youngster winger Amad Traore in this transfer window.
According to Manchester Evening News, the right-sided winger is a genuine transfer target but not one who’s seen as a Jadon Sancho alternative. The Red Devils have been continually linked with the Borussia Dortmund star throughout this summer window.
Nevertheless, MEN also note that sources in Italy have been warned of Atalanta’s high asking price for the 18-year-old Traore.
At the age of 17, the winger became the youngest player to score in the Italian top flight for Atalanta.

Telles’ agent ‘expects’ bid from United
Porto’s Alex Telles is reportedly expecting a bid from United during this window as the Red Devils seek further options at left-back.
As per Portuguese news outlet A Bola, cited here, the 27-year-old’s agent is expecting the Old Trafford outfit to make a move for his client soon.
Fellow left-back Sergio Reguilon had previously been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but it is understood that he is on the verge of signing for Jose Mourinho’s Spurs.
As a result, Telles appears to stand as a viable alternative if United are looking to strengthen at left-back.
