IVAN RAKITIC

Bayern Munich could be prepared to launch an €80m (Dh 363m) bid for the Barcelona star, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Croatian has been a starring presence at the Camp Nou since his arrival from Sevilla in 2014, but fears that the potential arrival of Antoine Griezmann and the signing of Arthur could put at risk his place in the starting XI. The Bundesliga champions hope to take advantage with a mega offer for the 30-year-old who has made 129 appearances for the Catalan giants.

RICHARLISON

Manchester United have joined a growing list of clubs interested in signing the highly-rated Watford striker, according to Sky Sports News. The Brazilian was quick to make an impact in the Premier League after joining from Fluminense last summer. Despite not scoring since November, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and the Red Devils are all keeping tabs on the 20-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window. Jose Mourinho is set to overhaul his squad at the end of the season, with the futures of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in doubt.

N’GOLO KANTE

PSG have made the elusive Chelsea midfielder their top target of the summer transfer window, according to L’Equipe. The French publication are reporting that the Ligue 1 leaders are keen to find a long-term successor to Thiago Motta who is set to leave the club in June. Kante is believed to be the club’s key candidate for the role – with the French international attracted to the option of being back in his homeland. The 27-year-old has provided just one assist in 23 Premier League appearances this term for Chelsea.

DAYOT UPAMECANO

Barcelona are prepared to launch a €100m (Dh452m) bid for the teenage RB Leipzig sensation, according to Telefoot .

Following the departure of Javier Mascherano and the lack of consistent form of Thomas Vermaelen and Yerry Mina, Upamecano has emerged as a key target for the Catalan giants.

The 19-year-old has become a regular in the Bundesliga this season, and Ernesto Valverde views him as the heir apparent to 31-year-old Gerard Pique.

The Frenchman has made 36 appearances in all competitions this term, with Manchester United, Arsenal and AC Milan also monitoring his developments.

ALVARO MORATA

Juventus are interested in signing the Chelsea striker this summer, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Spaniard starred for the Bianconeri on loan from Real Madrid between 2014 and 2016, before signing for the West London side last summer in an €80m (Dh361.5m) deal.

However, Morata has faded after a blistering start to life at Stamford Bridge, and reports have emerged that the Old Lady will move for the 25-year-old if Mario Mandzukic leaves Turin at the end of the season.

MARCUS RASHFORD

The Manchester United could be planning an exit from Old Trafford as his frustration over a lack of playing time grows, reports the Mirror .

The England international has only started five of the last 15 matches and is said to be disappointed at playing just eight minutes of Saturday’s 3-2 win over Manchester City.

The 20-year-old has made 43 appearances for the Red Devils this season, with 21 of those coming from the bench.

ALASSANE PLEA

Everton, Burnley, Newastle and Tottenham are hoping to sign the elusive Nice striker in the summer, Calciomercato.com claims.

The 25-year-old has been instrumental for the Ligue 1 side, scoring 17 goals in all competitions this season.

Everton remain frontrunners to secure the uncapped Frenchman’s signature – who has three years to run on his current contract at the Allianz Riviera – but Spurs are also in the hunt for a back-up striker should Fernando Llorente leave in June.

KENEDY

Paris Saint Germain and Bayern Munich have shown an interest in the in-form Newcastle star, Sky Sports reports.

The full-back has been in scintillating form at St. James Park since arriving from Chelsea on loan in January, with Toon fans hoping he can be signed on a permanent basis.

But with Chelsea set to cash in on the Brazilian, Bayern and PSG have both asked to be kept aware of any developments on the 22-year-old’s future before Newcastle lock him into a long-term deal.
