United 'want' Hernandez

Manchester United are said to be keen on landing an AC Milan star this summer, with Theo Hernandez reportedly coming back into view. Fichajes report that United expressed an interest in the defender last summer but ultimately decided against a move.

The report now claims the Red Devils are willing to pay as much as £51.3million to land the France international. United are desperate for a new left-back heading into this summer having seen Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia struggle with injury all season.

Summerville interest

Aston Villa are reportedly interest in one of the Championship's standout players. Leeds United star Crysencio Summerville has been a sensation in the second tier this season, and he scored another brilliant goal on Friday night as the Whites drew with Watford.

According to Football Insider, Villa are 'very keen' on the Dutchman, though their chances of landing him will likely depend on whether Leeds' promotion bid proves successful. Villa and Brighton were said to have been interested in January, but Leeds were not interested in selling. The question will be whether that will change this summer.
