Ligue 1 side Nice are interested in signing Manchester United's Amad DialloThe French outfit view Diallo as an alternative to top target Nicolas PepeChampionship sides Blackpool and Sunderland have both proposed loan movesDiallo spent part of last season on-loan at Scottish Premiership side Rangers
Manchester United winger Amad Diallo is a loan target for Ligue 1 side Nice with the forward keen for playing time in one of Europe’s top-flight leagues this season.
The French side are currently exploring a deal for Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe who has fallen out of favour at the Emirates and see Amad as an alternative if no deal can be struck.
Diallo joined United in 2021 for £37.2million as then-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identified the Atalanta youth product as a star in the making.

Ligue 1 side Nice are interested in bringing the 20-year-old to France this summer
However he has made just nine appearances since making the switch to Old Trafford, and only three outings in the Premier League during the 20/21 season.
Diallo has since been shipped on-loan to Rangers but joined United for their pre-season tour of Asia and Australia as Erik ten Hag assessed his squad ahead of the new season.
The 20-year-old however is not in the immediate plans of his Dutch boss and is now the subject of interest from a host of English and European clubs seeking to try their luck on the highly-regarded youngster.

Nice, owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe who recently expressed interest in buying United, would be favourites to land Diallo on a loan basis this season, but are not the only club tabling offers.
Championship sides Blackpool and Sunderland have both approached the Premier League side to try and lure Diallo to English football’s second division.
Nice are also competing with Everton for Blackburn Rovers forward Ben Brereton-Diaz.

The English-born-Chilean put numerous Premier League clubs on alert with dazzling performances last season seeing him score 22 goals in 37 appearances.
Everton are in desperate need of a striker following the long-term injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin and are without a win from their opening two Premier League games.
