Real plotting €90m Haaland swoop (ABC)

Blancos want BVB striker this summer

Real Madrid are plotting a €90 million (£79mm/$109m) swoop for Erling Haaland - according to ABC.

Borussia Dortmund may be open to selling the Norwegian striker amid debts in excess of €70m (£61m/$65m), and the Blancos are willing to include Luca Jovic or Mariano Diaz in any final deal.

However, several other top clubs have been heavily linked with Haaland, including Manchester United and Chelsea


Liverpool & Man City tracking Gladbach star Neuhaus

Liverpool and Manchester City are tracking Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus - according to Kicker.

Juventus and Bayern Munich are also keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old, whose current contract is due to run until 2024.

Neuhaus has featured in 28 matches across all competitions for Gladbach this season, scoring six goals.


Reading's Richards set to join Bayern

Reading left-back Omar Richards is set to join Bayern Munich in the summer - according to Kicker.

The 22-year-old has put pen to paper on a pre-contract agreement which will see him move to Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

Richards has committed his future to Bayern until 2025, with his five-year stay at Reading now drawing to a close.


Man City & Arsenal monitoring Madrid teenager Iglesias

Manchester City and Arsenal are monitoring Real Madrid teenager Bruno Iglesias - according to Defensa Central.

The Premier League duo have been scouting the 17-year-old for some time, and could compete for his signature in the summer transfer window.

Madrid are eager to keep hold of Iglesias, but the lure or Premier League football could prove too strong for the midfielder.


Bayern snap up Upamecano from Leipzig for €42.5m

Bayern Munich have snapped Dayot Upamecano up from RB Leipzig on a five-year deal.

Bayern have won the race to sign Upamecano ahead of a whole host of top European clubs, as the defender has put pen to paper a pre-contract agreement with the German champions which will see him move to Allianz Arena in the summer.

The likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus had also been linked with the 22-year-old, but he has opted to continue his development with the newly crowned sextuple winners.


Messi excited and happy at Barca - Koeman

Ronald Koeman has insisted that Lionel Messi is "excited and happy" at Barcelona despite ongoing transfer talk.

Messi took his tally to 15 goals from 20 La Liga matches in 2020-21 by netting twice in the 5-1 thrashing of Alaves on Saturday.

The Argentine continues to be linked with a move away from Camp Nou after entering the final five months of his contract, but Koeman thinks he is enjoying his football again amid Barca's improved domestic form.


Ceballos will cost Arsenal £22m

Dani Ceballos will cost Arsenal £22 million ($30m) if they want to buy him outright this summer - according to The Mirror.

Real Madrid are open to sanctioning the Spaniard's permanent departure once his loan deal at Emirates Stadium expires at the end of the season.

Mikel Arteta must now decide whether he wants to keep hold of Ceballos, who has only started 13 games for Arsenal this term.


Argentina legend Batistuta has offer to coach in MLS

Former Fiorentina and Argentina idol Gabriel Batistuta has received an offer to coach at an MLS club, reports Ole.

It would be Batistuta's first job as head coach, although the 52-year-old spent two years at Colon as the Argentine club's director of football between 2011 and 2013.


Madrid 'desperate' to snare Kounde

Real Madrid are reportedly desperate to sign Jules Kounde as the risk of losing both Raphael Varane and Sergio Ramos grows, via The Sun.

Los Blancos are one of a number of key suitors for the Sevilla man, including Manchester United.

But with Varane and Ramos both possibly set to bring the curtain down on their career in the Spanish capital, Madrid will make such a defensive cornerstone a key buy.


Botman agent rubbishes exit talk

The agent of Lille centre-back Sven Botman has denied that the club have reached an agreement to sell him.

Reports emanating from Canal+ in France had suggested that a big European club had agreed to buy the 21-year-old in the summer, with a fee in the region of €45 million (£39m/$55m) suggested.

The names of no clubs had been put forward in the report, although it was later indicated that the deal had been struck with a Premier League team.


Arsenal set to hand Luiz new deal

Senior player has impressed Arteta

David Luiz is set to be handed a fresh extension at Arsenal in order to help influence Mikel Arteta's young side, says The Independent.

The Brazilian is currently on a deal that expires at the end of the current campaign, with the Gunners typically offering only short-term deals to senior players over 30.

But his attitude has impressed his manager, who will look to tie him down for the 2021-22 campaign at the Emirates Stadium.


Burnley eye up Benfica's Dos Santos

Burnley have eyed up Benfica goalkeeper Carlos Joaquim dos Santos as a potential understudy for Nick Pope, claims The Sun.

The 20-year-old is currently a regular face in the Portuguese side's reserve team.

But he has done enough to catch the eye of Sean Dyche, who wishes to bring in another face to provide cover should England man Pope be injured.


DONE DEALS

Marseille sign teenage striker Gebreyesus

Marseille have signed Esey Gebreyesus from Grasshoper Zurich.

The 17-year-old confirmed the signing of his first professional contract on his Instagram page on Sunday.
