With the European transfer window still open until September 2, a number of players may still depart the Premier League.

Fiorentina eye Fred 

One of those who could leave England for a new challenge is Manchester United’s Fred who reportedly is attracting interest from Italy.

The Brazilian moved to Old Trafford from Shakhtar Donetsk for £47million in the summer of 2018 but has failed to find his best form.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to use the 26-year-old in the Red Devils’ opening three matches this term, opting to play Scott McTominay, Paul Pogba and Andreas Pereira in central midfield.

Fred has struggled since moving to Old Trafford.

And Calciomercato report that Serie A outfit Fiorentina are preparing an offer of around £27million for the player.

The Italian side have already signed the likes of France legend Franck Ribery and ex-Portsmouth midfielder Kevin-Price Boateng this summer.

Monreal to make return to Spain

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal looks set for a move to Real Sociedad, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The left-back, who has played in all three of the Gunners’ opening Premier League matches this term, joined the Emirates side from Malaga in January 2013.

Monreal could be set to leave Arsenal after six-and-a-half years.

However, with new £25million signing Kieran Tierney fighting his way back to full fitness and Monreal’s contract expiring next summer, it’s claimed that the North London outfit are willing to let the 33-year-old move on.

And it’s claimed that the Spaniard is on the verge of penning a two-year deal with the La Liga side.

Villa snap up highly-rated defender

Aston Villa have seen off a number of fellow Premier League clubs to secure the signing of Nigerian defender Iffy Udanoh, according to AllNigeriaSoccer.com.

It’s claimed that the 16-year-old, who stands at 6ft 4in, was on the radar of eight top-flight English sides and had been given a trial by Liverpool, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

But it’s now reported that following a successful trial with the Villans, Udanoh, who is also eligible to play for England and the United States, has signed a two-year deal at Villa Park.
