FC Twente’s De Jong is Target of Five English Clubs, Mirror Says

Manchester United is among five Premier League soccer clubs interested in signing FC Twente’s Netherlands striker Luuk de Jong, the Mirror reported.

The 21-year-old is also wanted by Chelsea, Liverpool, Newcastle and Tottenham, while Everton manager David Moyes watched him play last weekend, the newspaper said, without citing anyone.

Twente has already received offers of 12 million pounds ($19.4 million) from Germany’s Borussia Moenchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen, but De Jong favors a move to England, the Mirror added.

De Jong has scored 62 goals in the past two seasons, the newspaper said.
