LUCAS TORRERIA

Liverpool are set to challenge RB Leipzig for the signing of Lucas Torreira, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The Merseyside outfit are looking to add the Sampdoria midfielder to their ranks with Leipzig’s Naby Keita already on his way to Anfield this summer. However, Liverpool may lose Juventus target Emre Can on a free ahead of next season..

In Torreira, Liverpool would gain a defensive midfielder to possibly replace the German. The 22-year-old broke through at Pescara and has impressed in the Italian top flight, even compared to Marco Verratti at times.

ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI

Paris Saint-Germain have begun discussions with Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski over a summer transfer, according to L’Equipe du Soir (via lefigaro.fr).

Despite enjoying another prolific season at PSG, Edinson Cavani is linked with a move away from the French capital. The Uruguayan has clashed with Neymar a few times and with new manager Thomas Tuchel stating his intentions to build the team around the Brazilian, the striker could look for a new team.

Cavani is wanted by Atletico Madrid who look destined to lose Antoine Griezmann to Barcelona. Lewandowski would be a superb replacement for Cavani, perhaps even an upgrade.

EDEN HAZARD

Chelsea‘s star of their FA Cup final win over Manchester United has attracted the interest from the other half of the Mancunian territory. Eden Hazard has emerged as Manchester City‘s chief transfer target this summer with manager Pep Guardiola set to launch a serious bid for his services, the Daily Star report .

After storming to the Premier League title and sending records tumbling, the champions are keen to add reinforcements ahead of new season and the Belgian would strengthen their already deep squad.

However, Hazard could easily set the Citizens behind by a £100 million while his weekly wage would be in the region of £300,000.

MAROUANE FELLAINI

AC Milan are growing in confidence in their bid to sign Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to the Express.

The robust Belgian is yet to put pen to paper over a new deal at United and is set to be a free agent in June.

Jose Mourinho has suggested that he would like to keep Fellaini at United but the club have been unsuccessful in their efforts to secure his signature.

The 30-year-old is likely to field offers from the Chinese Super League as well but Milan reportedly entered the bidding last week.

The Italian club’s sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli has suggested a deal could be in the works.

HECTOR BELLERIN

Juventus maintain an interest in Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin but do not agree with the Premier League’s £50m valuation, the Daily Express reports.

The Serie A champions are keen to make a move for the Spaniard but would need Arsenal to lower their asking price. The decision to sell or not will ultimately lie with Arsene Wenger’s successor with former player Mikel Arteta being the favourite to take over the reins at the Emirates Stadium.

Bellerin has consistently been linked with a move away from England in the last couple of years with Barcelona the interested party.
