Manchester United are being linked with a swoop for Derby County midfielder Will Hughes, while Antonio Valencia could join Galatasaray.
Reports claims United boss David Moyes has been keeping tabs on 18-year-old Hughes, who has made a name for himself in the Championship at Pride Park and was linked with a move to Premier League outfit Newcastle in the past.
Hughes has made over 50 appearances for the Rams and has four England Under-21 caps, although he missed Thursday evening's 4-0 win against San Marino because of a groin injury.
Nevertheless he could be targeted by the Red Devils and their hopes of landing Hughes might be boosted by former United assistant boss Steve McClaren's arrival as manager at the East Midlands outfit.
McClaren admitted this week that it will be impossible for the Rams to keep hold of Hughes in the long-term so if a good offer is forthcoming from United they may be tempted to sell.
Meanwhile, winger Valencia, could be the man to help fund a bid for Hughes as he is being linked with a £12.5million move to Turkish side Galatasaray.
The 28-year-old Ecuadorian international has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford under Moyes and former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, who was recently installed as Galatasaray boss, is thought to be keen on taking him to the Turk Telekom Arena.
Everton are also thought to be interested in Valencia and could make a counter bid to take him to Goodison Park.
