KYLIAN MBAPPE

Man City are set to move for star attacker Kylian Mbappe if PSG fail to meet Financial Fair Play rules, the Mirror reports.

The French giants are being investigated by UEFA after paying a combined £365m (Dh1.9 billion) for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe last summer.

If the Parisiens are found to have broken FFP regulation they face being hit with a massive fine, which would force them to sell some of their top players.

Sky Blues boss Pep Guardiola is monitoring the situation, and wants Mbappe after seeing the former Monaco hitman shine in the Champions League.

PACO ALCACER

Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer could be on his way to the Premier League in the summer after several English clubs expressed an interest in the Spaniard, reports Sport.

The 24-year-old has struggled to make an impact since moving from Valencia in 2016, and is very much a back-up to club legend Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at Camp Nou.

The Torrente native – who has scored seven goals in all competitions this season – would provide firepower to Southampton, West Ham and Monaco should any of the interested clubs submit a bid for his services during the summer.

MATTHIJS DE LIGT

Man City remain in pole position to sign the highly-rated Ajax defender, according to the Mirror.

The Etihad Stadium club have identified the 18-year-old as a top target and will watch him at close quarters for the rest of the season.

The towering centre-back has become a regular fixture in the Ajax side this campaign, prompting further reported interested from Arsenal and Bayern Munich.

Billed as the next Virgil van Dijk after forming an impressive partnership with the Liverpool ace at international level, de Ligt could be available for £50million (Dh 261.5m).

LUCAS VAZQUEZ

Jurgen Klopp is hoping to bring the Spanish attacker to Anfield this summer, reports the Sun.

The 26-year-old has netted eight goals and provided eight assists in all competitions this term.

However, he has started just 13 La Liga games and is said to want more game time at the Bernabeu.

And according to the English news outlet, Klopp is desperate to land the €60 m (Dh 272.1m) forward who has pace to burn, willingness to work back and fits perfectly into the Reds counter-pressing system.

MATTEO DARMIAN

Juventus will sign Matteo Darmian from Manchester United during the summer, Tuttosport reports.

The Italy international, who has fallen down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho this term, will join the Serie A champions at the end of the season. Massimiliano Allegri is seeking a replacement for 34-year-old Stephan Lichtsteiner who’s contract is due to expire in June.

Darmian, who turns 29 in December, has played only played once since the 3-1 win over Arsenal on December 2.

KIERAN TIERNEY

Manchester United are ramping up plans to recruit a new left-back and Celtic youngster Kieran Tierney will come under their gaze in Sunday’s Old Firm derby, according to the Daily Mail.

With Luke Shaw persona non grata at Old Trafford, manager Jose Mourinho is keen on seeing whether the Scotland international can solve his problem position.

A scout will be posted at Hampden Park to run the rule over Tierney, 20, in the Scottish Cup semi-finals against bitter rivals Rangers.

DANNY DRINKWATER

Frustrations about a lack of playing time at Chelsea have alerted London rivals West Ham to Drinkwater’s availability.

The Sun reports that the England international is seeking a fresh challenge after starting just five times in the Premier League since last summer’s switch from Leicester.

The Hammers now look safe in the top flight and the 28-year-old features highly in their plans for a better 2018/19 campaign. Chelsea are unlikely to offer much resistance to his sale across the capital.
