Transfer rumours: Amad Diallo to Nice, Justin Kluivert to Fulham, Boubakary Soumare to Crystal Palace

Nice are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United attacker Amad Diallo on loan for the season.

The 20-year-old was involved in his side’s preparations for the 2022-23 campaign, but he has not yet been used by the Red Devils at the start of the new season.

Man United boss Erik ten Hag is believed to be open to letting the youngster leave on a short-term basis, with a number of clubs said to be interested in his services.

According to Football Insider, Nice are keen to sign the versatile forward, with the Ligue 1 outfit making contact with the 20-time English champions to register their interest.

Diallo spent the second half of last season on loan at Rangers, featuring on 13 occasions for the Scottish giants, including 10 outings in the league.

Meanwhile, Fulham have reportedly agreed personal terms with Roma attacker Justin Kluivert.

The 23-year-old has been with Roma since 2018, but he has recently spent time out on loan at both RB Leipzig and Nice, scoring four times in France’s top flight last term.

Kluivert is believed to be available for transfer this summer, with a number of clubs, including West Ham United, said to have held talks over a deal this summer.

Fulham have recently emerged as the favourites, though, and according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Marco Silva‘s side have come to an agreement with the Dutchman over personal terms.

Romano claims that the Premier League side will now look to settle on a transfer fee with Roma, and there have been claims that a deal could be done in the region of £8m.

Elsewhere, Crystal Palace are allegedly preparing a move for Leicester City midfielder Boubakary Soumare.

The 23-year-old only joined the Foxes from Lille last year, and he made 30 appearances in all competitions during the 2021-22 campaign, including 19 outings in the Premier League.

Soumare is yet to feature this term, though, and there has been speculation surrounding his future despite the fact that his contract is due to run for another four years.

According to The Sun, Palace boss Patrick Vieira is a huge admirer of the midfielder and is keen for the Eagles to secure his signature before the end of the transfer window.

The report claims that Leicester would be willing to let the former France Under-21s international leave for the right price.

Meanwhile, former Man United centre-back Jaap Stam has urged the Red Devils to sell Cristiano Ronaldo before the end of the summer transfer window.

Ronaldo has allegedly been pushing to leave the club this summer in order to join a Champions League club, and Stam has said that it would be best for Erik ten Hag’s side if the 37-year-old was allowed to leave.

“Everybody knows Ronaldo and what he’s been doing for United last season and in the past, so everybody is looking up to him,” The Sun quotes Stam as saying.

“But if a player’s not happy and wants to leave, then you need to make a decision for the greater good and say, ‘OK, maybe it’s better we part ways’ and look for somebody else.

“So if he’s in the dressing room and he really wants to leave and he’s not himself, or he’s sitting there by himself or he’s not in a good mood, then it has an impact on the players, for sure.”

Ronaldo is set to make his third Premier League appearance of the season in Monday’s clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford.
