Man Utd star Wan-Bissaka ‘wanted by DR Congo’ but defender aims to impress England boss Southgate

AARON WAN-BISSAKA will look to fight for his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad despite being approached by DR Congo, according to reports.

Reps from the African country have made contact with the Manchester United right-back to determine where he sees his international future.

Wan-Bissaka, 23, is eligible to play for both countries and has yet to make a senior appearance for either national side.

The former Crystal Palace defender has played for both teams at youth level.

But England’s strength in depth at right-back means Wan-Bissaka is facing a tough fight to represent the Three Lions.

Reece James, Kieran Trippier, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kyle Walker are all thought to be ahead of him in the pecking order.

According to the Times, DR Congo won’t ease up on their pursuit of Wan-Bissaka.

England’s next fixtures come in March with a triple header of games as the World Cup qualifying gets underway.

Southgate will then name his squad for the summer’s Euro tournament.

And if Wan-Bissaka is overlooked yet again, DR Congo will feel more confident in securing the right-back’s services.

He sparked speculation of where his future lies in October by deleting the England badge from his Insta bio and replacing it with a DR Congo flag.
