Leeds United have been linked with a promising Belgian midfield star but that move may have been dealt a blow with Leicester City reportedly “confident” that they will land the players while a long term Newcastle United target has told his current club he wants to stay despite months of interest from the Magpies.
Meanwhile, Brighton & Hove Albion are “aware” of a Chelsea defender and are keeping an eye on his situation but could face competition from Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest while Tottenham Hotspur are said to be the latest club entering the race to sign Jesse Lingard after his release from Manchester United.
An Arsenal full-back, who was out on loan last season, has returned to training with the Gunners with question marks over his future remaining and Everton are targeting a £20m valued Watford striker as a potential replacement for Richarlison.
Elsewhere, Chelsea have ‘made contact’ with Neymar with PSG reportedly happy to let the Brazilian leave this summer while Manchester United have made an offer to Christian Eriksen worth £150k a week for two years.
Finally, Brentfor are pushing to sign an England U21 star who is with Championship side Hull City and valued around £20m by the Tigers.
