Brighton defender Tariq Lamptey is one of the most sought-after players in the winter transfer window.
Lamptey’s ability to operate in defense as a right-back and contribute to the attack by playing the wing-back position has attracted the attention of several big clubs.
According to some media, Arsenal have already approached Lamptey. Although it is strange that the Gunners would be interested in a right-back since they signed Takehiro Tomiyasu last summer.
Tomiyasu has become one of the team’s leading stars and has even been described as one of the best right-backs in the Premier League.
For their part, the Red Devils are looking for someone to play a more relevant role at the back, given the poor performance of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Man Utd’s new boss Ralf Rangick has failed to impress the fans and the players themselves with his tactical approach, and a player like Lamptey could give the team the boost it needs.
According to sources at Old Trafford, the Red Devils are preparing a £30m bid for Lamptey. However, Brighton will not let the player go for less than £40m.
Lamptey has won over the Seagulls fans and has become a permanent name in the first team.
Manchester United is fighting to climb the Premier League table where they are likely to face a battle with West Ham, Tottenham, and Arsenal for fourth place. Therefore, the club needs players to ensure results.
In addition, the club has several players who are unhappy and are pushing for an exit in this market. Some of the players who want to leave the club are Dean Henderson, Donny van de Beek, and Anthony Martial.
