Manchester United‘s chances of signing Arsenal striker Robin van Persie continue to get stronger.

The Mirror says Van Persie could be ready to snub Juventus as their coach Antonio Conte is facing a lengthy ban over match-fixing related allegations levelled against him.

Carl Thomas, who is assistant to the Arsenal striker’s agent Kees Vos posted on Twitter that Conte’s predicament was “hardly the advert” to convince RvP to sign for Italian champions Juve.

Conte is accused of failing to report alleged match-fixing in two games in the 2010-11 season, when he was in charge of Siena in Italy’s second tier.

United and Manchester City have been battling it out with Juve for the Arsenal and Holland star this summer, and all three have had bids turned down by the Gunners.

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler is impressed by young striker Adam Morgan.

Morgan struck on tour of the US against Toronto FC.

“I think it was massive for Adam to be involved with the first team on this tour and it was brilliant of the manager to give him that chance,” Fowler told liverpoolfc.com.

“As a goalscorer I think he’s fantastic. I was lucky enough to train with him at the Academy last year when I was doing some coaching. He is very left footed and his finishing is very good.

“He is composed in front of goal and Rushie would tell you as well, if you are composed and patient in front of goal then you will have a chance.

“He never looks ruffled and that to me is a great sign regardless of what level you are playing at. He scored a goal against Toronto and that is a good sign.

“He’s a young lad, he’s got a lot to learn about his play outside the box but that will come. As a finisher he is probably one of the best I’ve seen for a long, long time to be honest.”

With the likes of Ji-sung Park and Darron Gibson departing this year, it was suggested to Tunnicliffe that the path to a midfield place may start becoming clearer from his perspective.

“There are not as many people,” he admitted to manutd.com.

“But we’ve still got Larnell [Cole] and Jesse [Lingard], who are doing very well as well, and people who are younger than me and have got me looking over my shoulder as well as looking forward.

“There is a gap but I think there are still plenty of good players in the squad that I’ve got to get past to even get a few games this year.”
