A bidding war could break out as a number of top clubs are eyeing Leicester defender Harry Maguire, reports the Daily Mirror.

The paper said the 25-year-old centre back is wanted by Manchester City, as well as a number of other top Premier League clubs, and will be subject of close attention when he plays for England at this summer’s World Cup.

Toby Alderweireld could be swapping Tottenham white for Manchester United red next season, according to the Evening Standard.

Spurs are ready to listen to offers for the Belgian international and Danny Rose, with the Old Trafford club willing to spend upwards of £40m to land the 29-year-old Alderweireld.

Marco Silva is wanted by Everton to replace Sam Allardyce, who is set to be dismissed from the Goodison Park hotseat, according to the Daily Mirror.

The paper reports Watford, Silva’s former club, will want compensation as a severance deal has not yet been agreed after he left Vicarage Road in January.

Ones to watch

Steve McClaren: The former England boss is due to be announced as the new manager of Championship side Queens Park Rangers to replace the sacked Ian Holloway, reports the Daily Mail.

Matthew Bondswell: The 16-year-old Nottingham Forest left-back is wanted by Manchester United, according to the Sun.

Outgoing Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta to decide on destination 'next week'

Iniesta is set for one last rousing reception from the Barcelona fans.

Departing Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta says he will make a decision on the next step of his career “next week”.

Club captain Iniesta announced last month that he would be leaving the club where he’s been since the age of 12, with a move to either China or Japan in the offing.

“There are two scenarios, China or Japan, and each has its advantages,” he told Spanish radio Onda Cero overnight Monday.

“There are some minor details to be sorted out, we’re weighing everything up and will pick which one we decide is the best option.

“Next week, when everything is over, we’ll decide. Then, there’s the World Cup, I want to get this resolved so that I can focus.

Iniesta hinted that he does have a preference between the two choices, although he didn’t reveal which one.

“One option is more advanced than the other,” the midfielder said.

China’s Chongqing Lifan and Japan’s Vissel Kobe – who are owned by Barcelona sponsors Rakuten – were both forced to deny speculation that they had made big-money approaches for the 34-year-old.

Iniesta’s latest comments indicate that a move to Australia, which had been suggested in Spanish media, is not an option being considered.

The Spaniard, who is a wine producer, added that the economics of any new deal are “relatively important”, as he is eager to take his wine label from his native Castilla-La-Mancha region to new markets.

However, Iniesta says that the most important factor is his family, as he seeks a comfortable quality of life for his wife and three children.

The final match of Iniesta’s glittering career at Barcelona will be on Saturday against Real Sociedad, with the home fans at his beloved Camp Nou stadium set to make it a memorable, and emotional, affair.

An overhaul at Tottenham could see Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose heading for the exit door, the Mirror reports.

Spurs are ready to listen to offers for the pair, as well as Mousa Dembele, Fernando Llorente and Moussa Sissoko, the paper says. Mauricio Pochettino is said to be seeking backing from the club’s hierarchy with a more unrestricted wage structure to bring in new talent.

Following West Brom’s drop into the Championship, potential offers are beginning to surface for centre-back Jonny Evans. According to the Mirror, Arsenal are keen to bring the 30-year-old to the Emirates.

Evans is said to be up for grabs for just £3million, while Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno is also thought to be on the Gunners’ radar.

With David Moyes’ time at West Ham seemingly at an end, the club are looking to Paulo Fonseca to take charge next season, the Mail claims.

The paper says the Shakhtar Donetsk manager met with Hammers chairman David Sullivan a day after Moyes’ contract at the London Stadium expired. Fonseca, 45, is thought to be the first to meet with the club’s executives, with ex-Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini also tipped to be on the shortlist.
