West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace are keen on signing former Manchester City and Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna, while Manchester United are ready to go head to head with Chelsea for another top transfer target as they look beyond Eric Dier for reinforcements. Elsewhere, Arsenal winger Wilshere is now linked with a move to Serie A side Sampdoria, the Express reports. Here's a complete report of the latest transfer updates making the rounds:

West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace lead chase to sign Sagna

Bacary Sagna was not offered a new contract by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and is now on the hunt for a new club but the French international is certainly not short of offers.

Despite growing interest from his native France, Sagna could be set to extend his stay in the Premier League with both West Brom and Crystal Palace keen on signing him, according to the Birmingham Mail. Undoubtedly, Sagna has a “wealth of experience” in the EPL, where he has played his soccer for the past decade. The 34-year-old defender joined Arsenal from the French club AJ Auxerre for $7.7million ten years ago this July and went on to make a total of 213 league appearances for Arsenal.

Man United and Chelsea go head-to-head to sign Nainggolan

Eric Dier is the man José Mourinho actually wants to provide a “defensive shield” in fro\nt of his back-four ahead of this new season. However, Tottenham are insistent they won't sell.

According to SkySports, that has seen Manchester United apparently divert their attention to AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, coincidentally another player on Chelsea's wish list. Chelsea tried to snap Nainggolan last summer and despite agreeing to a transfer fee with AS Monaco for Tiemoue Bakayoko, the Blues remain keen on the Belgian international.

But Manchester United, who've been monitoring the Belgian for the past 6 months now, could be set to ignite their move, having on Monday “pipped” Chelsea to the signature of Romelu Lakuku.

Sampdoria interested in Wilshere

Inquiries have been made about the England international's availability but Serie outfit Sampdoria fear their valuation may be short of what Arsenal want, according to the Express.

Wilshere is now heading into the final twelve months of his current contract with no sign of a new contract on the horizon. Sampdoria could capitalize on the uncertainty and offer Wilshere a regular football, first-team if the Englishman, who has a young family, is open to the switch to Italy. Nevertheless, the loan stints at AFC Bournemouth were arguably a success last term but were apparently ended early by a broken foot following an aggressive challenge from Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
