FERNANDO

Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton are all chasing Spartak Moscow midfielder Fernando, reports The Sun.

The 26-year-old Brazilian has impressed this season, helping Spartak to their current second-place position in the Russia Premier League.

Spartak value Fernando, who is also being watched by Sevilla and Atletico Madrid, at £22m (Dh109m).

Fernando is linked with the Premier League.

LUIS ENRIQUE

Luis Enrique‘s sky-high wage demands could rule him out of the running to become Arsenal‘s new manager, reports the Mirror.

The former Barcelona boss is reportedly asking for a £25million-a-year salary (Dh124m), more than tripling outgoing boss Arsene Wenger‘s wages of £8m-a-year (Dh39m).

The demands have the Gunners considering younger and cheaper options, including Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira and Julian Nagelsmann.

MOHAMED SALAH

Real Madrid are hoping to lure Mohamed Salah away from Liverpool by offering Gareth Bale and Keylor Navas, according to Diario Gol.

Los Blancos are keen to sign the Egypt star this summer after his sensational campaign with the Reds but are put off by his €200 million price tag.

The Champions League holders hope that by including both the Wales star and the Costa Rica goalkeeper, they can get the price down and still land their man.

MAURO ICARDI

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi‘s agent Mino Raiola has made contact with Manchester United over a possible move, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The 25-year-old has attracted plenty of interest with his performances over recent seasons and has scored 27 goals in Serie A this term.

United are interested but Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the striker, who has a €110m release clause.

DAVID LUIZ

David Luiz could move to Napoli this summer should the Serie A side hire Rafa Benitez as their new manager, claims The Sun.

Luiz has fallen out of favour with Chelsea this term and could be open to a summer move in search of more playing time.

Current Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri has been tipped to leave in the summer and if the Partenopei bring in the current Newcastle boss, he could move for the defender who he managed during a six-month spell at Chelsea in the 2012/13 season.

Samuel Umtiti is a wanted man.

Manchester United remain in the mix for centre-back Samuel Umtiti even though Barcelona are convinced a contract extension will be agreed before World Cup 2018, according to SPORT.

Umtiti, 24, is reportedly at the top of manager Jose Mourinho’s list of summer targets as he looks to revamp his defence. A €60 million (264.4m) release clause in his current deal has allowed hope to grow of a move to the Premier League.

But the newly crowned La Liga champions are confident fresh terms will be agreed before the defender heads off with France to this summer’s extravaganza in Russia.

Any new deal would dramatically increase the termination fee.
