    NEVER CAN TIEL

    Youri Tielemans is rumoured to be considering a Leicester City exit with reports that the Belgian is eyeing a switch to Liverpool.

    The Daily Mail claims the Foxes are pushing for a minimum of £64million from the Anfield club for the midfielder who has two years left on his contract.

    It is thought Reds boss Jurgen Klopp sees the player as an ideal replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, who departed for PSG on a free transfer.

    Tielemans, 24, enjoyed a trophy-winning season with Brendan Rodgers’ side last term, helping them to an FA Cup win.

    HAARD TO READ

    Erling Haaland refused to commit his future to the club when asked by German media.

    The 20-year-old is believed to be a transfer target for European champions Chelsea, with rumours suggesting the Blues will table a huge offer this summer.

    Christian Falk, a journalist for German newspaper Bild, claims the publication asked Haaland if he was staying at Dortmund.

    The Norway international reportedly smiled and said nothing, missing an opportunity to quash any lingering rumours.

    CHAL CHASE

    Brentford are targeting a loan swoop for Chelsea prodigy Trevoh Chalobah.

    The versatile 22-year-old can play in either midfield or defence and is attracting interest from several clubs.

    West Brom have been chasing the starlet and wanted him to help lead their promotion charge from the Championship.

    Now the Express & Star claims they face stiff competition from the Premier League for his signature.

    Brentford are reportedly keen on signing Chalobah.

    And they hope the lure of the Premier League will help them pip the Baggies in the chase.

    CRISS CROSS

    Manchester United reportedly face competition from Tottenham in the race to prise defender Cristian Romero away from Serie A this summer.

    The 23-year-old centre-back, who is halfway through a two-year loan spell at Atalanta from Juventus, has earned rave reviews in Italy.

    Atalanta are keen to activate his £13.6million option to buy option clause a year ahead of schedule.

    And according to Calciomercato, they could look to then offload him for a heavy profit as competition for his signature hots up.

    They state that he could be sold for a £39m fee, with any deal to potentially rise to £51m with add-ons.

    Manchester United and Tottenham are claimed to have both expressed an interest in signing him.

    LOK STOCK

    Arsenal still want Italian Euro 2020 star Manuel Locatelli – but they are reportedly only willing to pay £40million.

    The Sassuolo midfielder was one of the star performers as he helped his nation to win the European Championship for the first time since 1968.

    The 23-year-old has been linked with a transfer move to both Arsenal and Juventus.

    Mikel Arteta’s Gunners, who began their pre-season with a 2-1 defeat at Hibernian yesterday, are keen to get their hands on Locatelli.

    But Football Daily claims they are only willing to fork out £40m for him.

    Even if that fee is enough, they may face a tough task convincing the ace to choose them over Juventus.

    Locatelli is understood to prefer a move to the Serie A giants due to them being in the Champions League.

    But they are in dire straits financially and that could mean the Gunners are in a better position to secure his signature.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS

    Jadon Sancho has completed his medical at Manchester United with an official announcement of his £73million move expected in the next 48 hours.

    Just two days after crucially missing a penalty kick in the Euro 2020 final shoot-out against Italy, Sancho was at United’s Carrington training ground yesterday to take the next step in his career.

    There was no problem with the medical and an official unveiling of him in the club’s new kit is imminent.

    This ends a year-long pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund winger after United failed to land him last summer.

    Meanwhile, Jorge Mendes is still in contact with Arsenal technical director Edu over a move for Wolves star Ruben Neves.

    The Gunners are interested in the Portuguese midfielder as a potential new partner for Thomas Partey with Granit Xhaka linked to a switch to Roma this summer.

    And SunSport understands that Neves’ agent Mendes is in constant communication with Edu in an attempt to get a deal over the line as soon as possible. 

    However, the £35m price tag on Neves is still a stumbling block in the negotiations.

    Finally, Tottenham are 'prioritising' signing Danny Ings from Southampton this summer, according to reports.

    New boss Nuno Espirito Santo is looking to implement a new 3-5-2 formation in North London.

    And according to The Telegraph, Spurs want to sign Ings to partner Harry Kane – not replace him.

    They claim that the Saints ace, 28, is worth around £20million in the current market.

    GRIEZY RIDER

    Atletico Madrid have instantly rejected Barcelona's offer to swap Nou Camp flop Antoine Griezmann for Joao Felix.

    NAP RAP

    Jorginho’s agent claims Chelsea team-mate Emerson Palmieri has been asking the midfielder about life in Naples ahead of a proposed transfer.

    Napoli are eager to sign Emerson, and the Blues are set to do business.

    EXCLUSIVE BY JORDAN DAVIES

    Jorge Mendes is still in contact with Arsenal technical director Edu over a move for Wolves star Ruben Neves.

    The Gunners are interested in the Portuguese midfielder as a potential new partner for Thomas Partey with Granit Xhaka linked to a switch to Roma this summer.

    And SunSport understands that Neves’ agent Mendes is in constant communication with Edu in an attempt to get a deal over the line as soon as possible. 

    However, the £35m price tag on Neves is still a stumbling block in the negotiations.

    And SunSport also understands that despite another of Mendes' clients Nuno Espirito Santo – former Wolves boss now at Tottenham – still being a huge fan of Neves, he is unlikely to join Arsenal's North London rivals.

    TAKE KEHR

    The Metro claims he is seen as an alternative option to £50million-rated Brighton star Ben White.

    Kehrer has struggled for minutes since joining PSG from Schalke in 2018.

    STURRIDGE COURAGE

    Daniel Sturridge has been invited to a trial with Spanish outfit Mallorca as he seeks to return to football after 15 months out of action.

    The club won promotion to LaLiga ahead of next season.

    A statement on their web site says: "RCD Mallorca has extended an invitation for Daniel Sturridge (Birmingham, England, 1989) to participate from tomorrow, July 14, in the training sessions of the club's first team as part of its preparation process."

    Sturridge has been clubless since his forced exit from Turkish Super Lig side Trabzonspor.

    The former Liverpool striker was handed a four-month ban from football for breaking betting regulations in 2019.

    The ban, which was initially six weeks, was increased to four months in March 2020 following an FA appeal.

    The ex-Man City player has posted videos of himself keeping fit for his return to football on Instagram.

    MATTHEWS MOVE

    Remi Matthews has become Patrick Vieira's newest signing at Crystal Palace.

    The former Sunderland goalkeeper, 27, has joined the Selhurst Park side on a two-year deal.

    And the stopper kept three clean sheets in 11 appearances across competitions for the Black Cats last term.

    Matthews told Palace TV: "I’ve got two great goalkeepers to look up to in Vicente Guaita and Jack Butland.

    "It’s great to be a part of it, and I’m really looking forward to it."

    And both are valued at more than £120million by their clubs.

    BAY BYE

    Bayern Munich are searching for a replacement to wantaway striker Robert Lewandowski, according to reports.

    The Polish goal machine is said to want to play for Real Madrid in the final years of his career and the German giants are looking for someone to fill his very large boots.

    With his contract up in 2023, Bayern will not field any offers for the Pole at any price this summer, according to Sport Bild.

    Yet a move in 12 months' time is not inconceivable and Los Blancos are his preferred destination, according to AS.

    Erling Haaland and Romelu Lukaku are on Bayern's list of potential replacments but would command huge fees.

    Sport1 allege that Bayern bosses are deliberately remaining quiet over the Haaland rumours to avoid upsetting their star striker.

    Borussia Dortmund want over £150million for their forward, who could be available for less than half of that when a release clause is enacted next year.

    BYE BYE RUI

    Wolves could be set to bid farewell to goalkeeper Rui Patricio according to reports.

    BBC Sport claims the Prem club are looking bring in Jose Sa from Olympiakos as a replacement for the Portugal international.

    It is reported that Patricio, 33, is set to joinJose Mourinho's Roma for £10million.

    The stopper kept 37 clean sheets for Wolves in 127 appearances since his 2017 move to the club.

    It is thought Patricio's compatriot Sa has been cleared to move to Wolves following Olympiakos reaching an agreement with Czech Republic keeper Tomas Vaclik.

    GOOD MORNING TRANSFER FANS

    Man United hope to help Jadon Sancho over his Euro heartache by finalising a switch this week.

    The England ace, 21, is expected to have his medical with the Red Devils before he heads off on his holidays.

    A fee of around £73million was agreed between United and Borussia Dortmund in June bringing a long pursuit to an end.

    And the Premier League giants are keen to put the finishing touches to the move as soon as possible now that his international commitments are over.

    Meanwhile United are still in talks with the representatives of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane about a move to England.

    However, United have yet to speak to the Spanish outfit to agree a fee for the 28-year-old French international.

    That could yet prove another obstacle with reports suggesting they will want north of £50m for the centre-back.

    Finally, Man City are set to step up their search for a new striker – but have ruled out a move for Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann.

    Reports in Spain have suggested City could move for French international Griezmann – who could be allowed to leave the Nou Camp this summer.

    However, sources at the Etihad have indicated the former Atletico Madrid man, 30, is not a player who is on their radar this summer.
