Liverpool close in on Fekir
Liverpool will step up their pursuit of Lyon star Nabil Fekir as they look to sign him before the World Cup, reports The Guardian.
The 24-year-old starred for Lyon in 2017-18, scoring 18 goals and earning a call to France’s World Cup squad.
The Reds will see their finances boosted by £70 million (€80m/$94m) for reaching the Champions League final, and could spend that windfall on the attacking midfielder.
Man Utd near Fred & Alderweireld deals
Manchester United are nearing the signings of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred and Tottenham centre-back Toby Alderweireld, reports the Mirror.
United are in talks with Shakhtar over Brazil international Fred, who will cost around £52 million (€59m/$70m).
The club also wants to tie up Alderweireld before the World Cup begins, with the Belgium international set to cost £45 million (€51m/$60m).
Vidal wants Juve return
Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal hopes to re-join Juventus this summer, according to Calciomercato.
The Chilean made a name for himself with the Old Lady, starring for the club in four seasons between 2011 and 2015.
With Vidal’s contract set to expire at the end of next season, Bayern could cash in on the 31-year-old now rather than lose him for free next summer.
Lazio’s Savic price too high for Man Utd
Manchester United have cooled their interest in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic after Lazio demanded £87.5 million (€100m/$117m) for the midfielder, reports the Daily Mail.
United have been heavily linked with the 23-year-old Serbia international, who has also drawn interest from Real Madrid and PSG.
Jose Mourinho does want to bring another midfielder to Old Trafford alongside the expected arrival of Fred, but is unwilling to go that high for Milinkovic-Savic.
Arsenal in for Seri
Arsenal are still interested in signing Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, according to Sky Sports.
New Gunners boss Unai Emery tried to sign Seri at PSG in January, but the deal was scrapped over Financial Fair Play concerns.
Seri has an agreement with Nice that allows him to leave if an offer of £35 million (€40m/$47m) or more comes in.
Man Utd ready to pounce for Costa
Manchester United will make a big-money move for Douglas Costa if Juventus do not exercise their purchase option on the Brazilian, reports The Sun.
Costa starred on loan for Juve in 2017-18, and the Serie A side have the option to purchase the 27-year-old from Bayern Munich for £33 million (€38m/$44m).
Though Juve are expected to exercise that option, they could opt to spend elsewhere and if they do, United are ready to make a £79m (€90m/$106m) move to sign him from Bayern.
Spurs target Zaha, Martial & Sessegnon
Tottenham are targeting Wilfried Zaha, Anthony Martial and Ryan Sessegnon this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Mauricio Pochettino has requested £100 million (€114m/$134m) to strengthen his squad as Spurs look to add marquee names ahead of their move to a new stadium.
Pochettino signed a new five-year contract with Spurs on Thursday.
Leno to choose between Atletico & Arsenal
Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno will chose between Atletico Madrid and Arsenal as his next club, reports Kicker.
The Germany international is in demand and is set to leave Leverkusen after the club signed Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt as his replacement on Wednesday.
Leno has turned down the advances of Napoli, meaning the 26-year-old can now decide whether he wants to continue his career in Spain or England.
Mandzukic & Arnautovic interest Man Utd
Manchester United are eyeing up Mario Mandzukic and Marko Arnautovic, reports Gianluca Di Marzio.
Mandzukic is expected to leave Juventus this summer and Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to add a tall, powerful attacker like the Croatian.
Should a move for Mandzukic not materialise then United would be interested in West Ham star Arnautovic, who fits a similar profile to the Juventus man.
Arsenal keen on Ndiaye
Arsenal are interested in signing Badou Ndiaye from recently relegated Stoke City, according to Galsenfoot.
The Senegal international joined the Potters from Galatasaray in January, and performed well while making 13 Premier League appearances in a central midfield role.
In addition to Arsenal, Besiktas and West Ham have also expressed an interest in the 27-year-old.
