MANCHESTER UNITED outcast Jadon Sancho and Tottenham forward Richarlison are wanted by clubs in Saudi Arabia, according to reports.
Saudi teams are ramping up their transfer preparation ahead of the January window.

Now clubs are targeting Sancho and Richarlison, according to The Telegraph.
It is claimed Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq were amongst the clubs interested in Sancho in the summer.
