ALFIE MAWSON

As Sevilla and Manchester City proved not too long ago, strike at the heart of Manchester United’s defence and it can cause Jose Mourinho mega headaches – even with Eric Bailly back in action.

So that gives credence to the latest name to be linked to Old Trafford, with Alfie Mawson generating a rather big name for himself as Swansea fight tooth and nail to ensure they stay in the Premier League this season.

According to The Sun, scouts on Mourinho’s orders were at the Swans’ 1-1 draw with West Brom last weekend – a move sure to pile the pressure on up-and-down centre-backs Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

JEAN MICHAEL SERI

Chelsea’s ‘improvements’ in midfield this season have fallen flat so far to say the least. Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater have been a clear step back – made all the worse with reject Nemanja Matic flourishing at Manchester United.

L’Equipe say the Blues will be rectifying that at the close season with the signature of Jean Michael Seri, the Nice midfielder who was a gnat’s hair away from signing for Barcelona last year.

United and more recently Liverpool have been linked with the diminutive Ivorian who is best regarded for his pinpoint passing and poise – two traits Chelsea desperately need more of.

Wanted man: Seri.

PAUL POGBA

The France midfielder’s future beyond this summer at Manchester United seems far from certain and Paris Saint-Germain are plotting a return to his homeland, according to Paris United.

Pogba, 25, struck twice in last weekend’s stunning derby win at Manchester City, but this was the high point of a miserable few months detailed by a rumoured falling out with manager Jose Mourinho.

Big-spending PSG have opened talks with agent Mino Raiola as they look to further revamp their squad after their Champions League disappointment.

GARETH BALE

The Wales forward suffered the indignity of being hooked at half-time during the thrilling midweek Champions League quarter-final with Juventus and his future could now lie in Italy.

Bale, 28, looks to have fallen down the pecking order at Santiago Bernabeu. With United no longer interested in acquiring him, The Independent reports that Internazionale could be his new home.

The Nerazzurri will pounce if Los Blancos show any inclination to dispense with the man they bought for €100 million (Dh452.9m) in 2013.

THIBAUT COURTOIS

The Belgium goalkeeper has set his heart on a switch to PSG as his seven-year association with Chelsea looks close to an end, according to RMC Sport.

Courtois, 25, has yet to agree a contract extension on a deal that expires in summer 2019. With the Parisians on the look out for a new, elite shot stopper, talks have begun about making the move.

But the Blues are unwilling to relinquish their No1 and are prepared to even let him walk out on a free transfer.

SAUL NIGUEZ

Arsenal have made an approach to sign the Atletico Madrid midfielder, according to AS.

The 23-year-old has made 188 appearances since breaking into Atletico’s first team back in 2012 and has been linked with a move to the Premier League at the end of the season.

With Manchester United originally frontrunners to sign Saul, Gunners have now stepped up their interest to secure his services.

The Spaniard has eight years to run on his contract at Wanda Metropolitano, and with a release clause of € 150m (Dh 681m), it looks highly unlikely he will be sold.

DANNY DRINKWATER

The Chelsea midfielder is considering his future at Stamford Bridge following a frustrating first season, according to The Guardian.

The England midfielder joined the Blues from Leicester last summer, but has struggled to nail down a place in the starting XI.

With Antonio Conte expected to leave the club at the end of the season, the 28-year-old will wait until a new manager is put in place before making a decision on his future.
