Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is lining up a swoop to sign either Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak or Everton shot-stopper Jordan Pickford as possible replacements for David De Gea this summer, according to a report in England.

The Daily Express is reporting that Manchester United shot-stopper De Gea has emerged as a summer target for cash-rich Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the start of the upcoming transfer window.

The same article states that Manchester United could act upon their long-standing interest in England number one Jordan Pickford, who has established himself as Gareth Southgate’s best goalkeeper in the national team set up.

But the Daily Express claims that Manchester United may have to pay a fee in the region of £60m to lure the Everton goalkeeper to Old Trafford.

According to the same story, the Red Devils are also interested in Atletico Madrid shot-stopper Jan Oblak, but the Slovenia international could prove difficult to sign.

Manchester United would need to eclipse the £72m transfer fee that Chelsea FC spent on Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga to complete a deal for Oblak.

De Gea has been Manchester United’s first-choice goalkeeper since 2011, winning the Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson two seasons after his arrival.
