Manchester United are eyeing up Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure for a summer transfer, according to the Mirror.

The paper says United have joined a number of clubs keeping track of the 25-year-old Frenchman, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal also reportedly interested in the midfielder.

Juventus are reportedly looking to use their trip to England, when they face Tottenham in the last 16 of the Champions League, as an opportunity to tie up a deal for Liverpool’s Emre Can.

The Mirror says reports in Italy suggest the 24-year-old German international is close to signing a contract with the club.

Reported Manchester United target Paulo Dybala could sign a new five-year contract at Juventus without any release clause, according to the Sun.

The paper says the 24-year-old believes he still has much to learn in Italy before testing himself in the Premier League.

Bernd Leno

Arsenal have reportedly set their sights on Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

The Daily Mail writes the Gunners want to sign a new keeper this summer, and rate Leno highly. But the potential move casts doubt on the future of Petr Cech as the club’s number one, the paper adds.

Liverpool are reportedly on the brink of signing Monaco star Thomas Lemar. The Metro says reports in the French media suggest the club are close to an agreement in principle for their long-term target.

Players to watch

David Alaba: The Mirror claims Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United could all battle it out for the wing-back after the Austrian admitted he was leaving an exit from Bayern Munich “open”. The paper says Barcelona and Real Madrid could also be keen on the star.

Marouane Fellaini: Paris St Germain are reportedly set to offer the 30-year-old Manchester United midfielder a lucrative four-year deal. The Sun says the Belgian has turned down the offer of a contract extension at Old Trafford, and claims reports in France suggest PSG are looking to make their move.

Though the winter transfer window just passed and the summer window is still months down the road, that hasn’t stopped the chatter of players potentially being on the move.

Across the world of football, there remains plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.

Here, we look at five potential transfer candidates that could be heading elsewhere when the market reopens in June.

EDEN HAZARD

Chelsea will stall on any contract offer from the Blues in the hope of securing a summer move to Real Madrid, the Daily Mail reports. While Hazard is happy under Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge, it is believed he is ready for a change after nearly six seasons in west London. Although the Belgian would add creativity, flair and class to a star-studded attack at the Bernabeu, Chelsea will do what they can to keep hold of their prized asset for next season. The report also states that Thibaut Courtois is eager to follow Hazard to the Spanish capital.

BERND LENO

Arsenal are considering pushing through a cut-price transfer for the Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper, according to Bild. The Gunners are keen to add a shot-stopper to their ranks after the ageing Petr Cech’s shaky displays this term.. David Ospina is available as a deputy, but Arsene Wenger’s side are searching for a young man between the sticks to build the future around. Leno, who turned 26 last week, has a £13m (Dh66m) release clause in his contract – a bargain for a shot-stopper considered a future German number one.

JONATHAN TAH

Tottenham have been eyeing up another Bayer Leverkusen star in the form of Tah, according to The Mirror. The paper says the club are looking at the defender as insurance in case Toby Alderweireld leaves and have been watching several of the 22-year-old’s games recently. Alderweireld’s current contract expires next season and Spurs are yet to persuade the Belgian to sign a new deal. If the north London side sell their star centre-back in the summer, they will aim to sign £35m-rated Tah (Dh178m), who has three senior caps for Germany and could head to the World Cup.

JOSHUA KIMMICH

Manchester United and Barcelona have been dealt a major blow as the Bayern Munich man is close to agreeing a new long-term contract at the Allianz Arena. According to Kicker, the 23-year-old has been rewarded with a contract extension up until 2022 as a result of his recent sparkling form. The former Red Bull Leipzig star complained of a lack of minutes last season but has established himself into one of Jupp Heynckes’ key men this term, since stepping into the right-back spot that Philipp Lahm vacated at the end of the 2015/16 season.

RAMIRES

The former Chelsea star is eyeing a return to Stamford Bridge after quitting Jiangsu Suning in the Chinese Super League. The 30-year-old left the Stamford Bridge outfit back in January 2016 after falling down the pecking order under then-boss Guus Hiddink. But Ramires has now opened the door to a return to the Blues by admitting to Brazilian publication UOL Esporte he’d be prepared to go back. The Brazilian made 246 appearances across six seasons in the English capital and clinched five trophies, including Champions League and Premier League titles.

Though the winter transfer window just passed and the summer window is still months down the road, that hasn’t stopped the chatter of players potentially being on the move.

Across the world of football, there remains plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.

Here, we look at five potential transfer candidates that could be heading elsewhere when the market reopens in June.

JAMIE VARDY

Everton have made Leicester striker Jamie Vardy their number one transfer target this summer, according to the Mirror.

The 31-year-old attacker has enjoyed huge success at King Power Stadium, scoring crucial goals that earned them the Premier League title in 2016.

The Toffees have been chasing a marquee forward all season after failing to land a suitable replacement following the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Man United.

Although Vardy is on a bumper contract at the Foxes, money is not meant to be an issue for Everton as they look to strengthen their options in attack following a mixed campaign under Sam Allardyce.

MAX MEYER

Atletico Madrid are considering a move to sign Scalke midfielder Max Meyer, Mundo Deportivo reports.

The 22-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and is expected to leave Arena AufSchalke, with Arsenal and Barcelona also expressing an interest in the German.

With Atletico down to 19 first-team players following the mid-season departures of Yannick Carrasco and Nicolas Gaitan, Meyer has emerged as an alternative summer target for Diego Simeone’s men.

Dubbed the new Toni Kroos, Meyer is a versatile midfielder who can play anywhere through the centre of the park – as well as an ability to perform well out wide.
