ALISSON

Roma president James Pallotta has delivered a blow to Real Madrid and Liverpool’s hopes of signing rising Brazilian talent Alisson in the summer.

The Roma star has been hailed as the ‘Lionel Messi of goalkeepers’ and could fetch upwards of £50million.

Doubts have persisted over Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet but Pallotta has shut the door on a move for the 25-year-old.

“I don’t understand why people keep asking me if Alisson will be our goalkeeper next season,” Pallotta said. “We have no intention of selling him. No chance.”

HARRY MAGUIRE

Jose Mourinho will make a move for Leicester City defender Harry Maguire in the summer, according to reports.

Maguire has starred in the heart of Leicester’s defence this season while also usurping Chris Smalling in the England set-up.

Now he is set to do the same for Manchester United with The Mirror reporting Mourinho has a keen eye on the centre-back, valued at £35million.

That’s despite Mourinho stating this weekend that he will “do anything crazy” in the upcoming transfer window.

 

Harry Maguire is said to be interesting Man United.

Monaco reignited speculation of a summer showdown between Premier League sides to sign Thomas Lemar after the club’s president suggested they were open to offers.

However Vadim Vasilyev warned the 22-year-old France international would cost “a lot” when asked if they would be open to bids over £110million, the Mirror reports.

Arsenal and Liverpool have been tipped as possible bidders, while Bayern Munich have also been linked with Lemar, suggesting some serious competition for the youngster could arise over the summer.

Newcastle are set to offer Martin Dubravka a permanent contract after the Sparta Prague keeper impressed boss Rafael Benitez during his time on loan at the club, the Daily Express reports.

With clean sheets from half of his first six Premier League appearances, the Slovakia international, 29, has made a good start since arriving in January. The deal is reported to have cost Newcastle £430,000, with a £4million option to make the move permanent.

Leicester defender Harry Maguire is at the top of Jose Mourinho’s summer transfer list, according to the Mirror. The £35million-rated, England-capped 25-year-old is said to have impressed the Reds boss with his performances during his first season with the Foxes.

After arriving from relegated Hull for a reported £17million in 2017, Maguire looks set to be hot property again when the summer transfer window opens. Meanwhile Mourinho will be looking to reboot Manchester’s Premier League pursuit with an enhanced squad.

Napoli’s Piotr Zielinski is being monitored by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, raising the prospect of a summer swoop for the midfielder, the Daily Express reports. The 23-year-old has made 29 Serie A appearances for second-place Napoli so far this season.

The Poland international joined the club for a reported 16m euros (£12.8) in 2016. He has reportedly been on Liverpool’s radar since, although his contract at the Stadio San Paolo runs until 2021.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes and former Baggies boss Tony Mowbray have been tipped to permanently replace Alan Pardew at West Brom.

According to the Mirror, McInnes, a former Albion player, is prepared to consider any approach from the club over the summer, while Mowbray could also be courted for a return to the Hawthorns.

Pardew left by mutual agreement in early April, with first team coach Darren Moore his temporary replacement. As former Baggies, both McInnes, 46, and Mowbray, 54, would be popular fan choices and high on the list of potential bosses to take over next season.
