Manchester United have reached an agreement with Crystal Palace regarding Wan-Bissaka, with the 21-year-old poised to complete a move to Old Trafford imminently.
The defender is set to move to the Red Devils for £45million, with the Eagles expected to secure more in the way of bonuses.
Manchester United view Wan-Bissaka as the perfect player to replace Antonio Valencia at right-back, with the veteran moving on after a decade of service.
He is not expected to be the last player to move to Old Trafford this summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer determined to strength his squad.
Midfielders are on his radar to compensate for the losses of Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini.
But the Times say Solskjaer is also eyeing transfers for Premier League duo James Maddison and Sean Longstaff.
Longstaff has drawn comparisons with Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick with his performances for Newcastle this season.
And Maddison has caught the eye with Leicester.
The Foxes star has impressed over at the King Power Stadium ever since his arrival from Premier League new boys Norwich in 2018.
Whether United are able to pull off both deals, though, is something only time will tell.
Newcastle losing manager Rafa Benitez could work in Solskjaer’s favour amid the 46-year-old’s desire for domestic talent.
Leicester, though, may prove tricky negotiators.
The Foxes dug their heels in when United came calling for Harry Maguire 12 months ago.
And Leicester are primed to be difficult negotiators again should the Red Devils move for Maguire or Maddison this summer.
Meanwhile, talkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham believes Maddison should stay at Leicester despite United’s interest.
“I think it would be a ‘head’s gone’ if he went,” the talkSPORT host said.
“I think he should stay. Brendan Rodgers has joined the club and they’re looking up.
“There’s some positive things happening and a lot of it is being based on James Maddison.
“You go to Manchester United and the recent history says you’re going to flatten out as a footballer.
“You’re not going to get better. No footballers are getting better at Manchester United, with the possible exception of Marcus Rashford.
“Leicester don’t need the money. The move wouldn’t be good for him.
“Every move he’s made so far has been a step up – this one would either be a step sideways or a step backwards.”
