More recently, reports coming from France suggest Man Utd are now in talks to sign Xavi Simons in the upcoming transfer window.

The 21-year-old playmaker spent the last two seasons on loan and excelled in the Dutch and the German leagues respectively.

According to L’Equipe, the Oranje star is still not ready to return to PSG and therefore, the French champions are once again thinking about loaning him out instead of a permanent transfer.

The renowned media outlet have mentioned that Man Utd have made contact to talk about signing Xavi Simons.

Leipzig would like to keep him at the club for another season, on the other hand, Arsenal are also interested in securing is signature.

Last term, the 15-capped star scored 10 goals and provided 15 assists in all competitions for the Bundesliga side.

His top performances earned him a place at the European championships and yesterday, the youngster featured for 62 minutes in the Netherlands’ 2-1 victory against Poland.

Simons, valued at £59million, is naturally a right footed player, who has proved to be brilliant on both the wings and can also be deployed in the central attacking midfield role if needed.

With futures of Antony, Greenwood and Sancho uncertain at Old Trafford, Ten Hag must sign a quality new winger.

In your view, should Man Utd secure the signing of Xavi Simons?
