Manchester United, Chelsea interested in Norwegian forward?

King on United, Chelsea radar

Manchester United and Chelsea are among the high-profile clubs, who are in the running to sign Joshua King from Bournemouth this summer.



The Cherries turned down a number of offers for the Norwegian in January and one of those came from the Red Devils prior to the transfer deadline.

According to The Mirror, the south Coast outfit could see a raft of players leaving the club in the next transfer window and King could be one of them.

Eddie Howe's side turned down a package of around £20m from the Red Devils for King in January but they may now accept a similar offer with the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

United and Chelsea are among the elite Premier League sides keeping a watch on the situation. King graduated through the youth ranks of the former before making the move to Blackburn Rovers in 2013.

The Cherries are currently in the relegation zone in the 18th spot. Only goal difference separates them from West Ham United and Watford, who are 17th and 16th on the table respectively.
