Transfer Talk: Man United eye Toney, Calvert-Lewin

Manchester United are weighing up approaches for Brentford striker Ivan Toney and Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin, according to The Athletic.

Talks are reported to have been held by the Old Trafford hierarchy as they continue to identify reinforcements for manager Erik ten Hag's squad, and it is believed that they could land one of the England internationals due to their respective contract situations

Toney, 28, entered the final year of his deal this month, and while the Bees have been looking for an offer worth £60 million, the Red Devils plan to negotiate a move closer to £40m.

Meanwhile, Calvert-Lewin could leave Goodison Park as the Toffees look to handle their current financial situation, and it is thought that an offer worth £30m would be enough to secure the 27-year-old's signature.

Both stars are seen as options that could provide support for current starter Rasmus Højlund, and alternatives to Bologna's Joshua Zirkzee, with United still yet to activate the former Bayern Munich striker's €40m release clause.
