Marco Asensio

Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are set to battle it out for the highly-rated Real Madrid forward, according to the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old played second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo for much of last campaign and is desperate for a regular place in the Los Blancos starting XI.

The Spain international is keen to stay at the Bernabeu but wants assurances of more game time under new manager Julen Lopetegui.

If Asensio is to leave, there will be more shortage of potential suitors, with Chelsea among the frontrunners to secure his signature.

Jerome Boateng

Manchester United have been told to shell out £50m (Dh241.4m) if they want to sign the Bayern Munich defender this summer, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The English publication is reporting that the Red Devils are prepared to make an offer for the German international as they look to bolster their defence ahead of next season.

United have struggled to find a regular defensive partner to Eric Bailly and Boateng may well be the man to strengthen the back-line alongside the Ivorian.

The 29-year-old is contracted to the Allianz Arena until 2021 but could try and force a move after the World Cup, with there apparently being plenty of admirers from the Premier League.

Miralem Pjanic

Chelsea and Barclona are plotting a move for the elusive Juventus midfielder, according to Tuttosport.

But the Italian publication are reporting that the Serie A champions will demand at least €80m (Dh339.6) if either club make an approach to sign the Bosnian international.

Barcelona are scouring the market for a replacement for Andres Iniesta, while Chelsea are looking to bolster their midfield under imminent new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Both clubs will push hard to sign the 28-year-old, but Juve will be desperate to hold on to their prized asset.

Jack Grealish

Liverpool are circling Tottenham and Aston Villa as the clubs barter over Jack Grealish, the Sun says.

Spurs’ chairman Daniel Levy is said to be keeping their offer at £20m (Dh96.5), despite Villa valuing the midfielder at £40m (Dh193.1m)

The Championship club are making hard financial decisions in the wake of their failed promotion bid and are said to be holding out to cash in on the promising playmaker.

The 22-year-old Birmingham native played for England Under-21s and is tipped for his senior call-up this year.

Rhian Brewster

Tottenham and Arsenal are keeping close watch of Liverpool’s England junior Rhian Brewster, the Sun reports.

The 18-year-old striker is said to be seeking assurances he will get the chance to play first team football next season.

With a place in Jurgen Klopp’s squad as yet unconfirmed, the striker has held off signing what will be his first professional contract, it is claimed.

Brewster has already rejected advances from Bundesliga big guns Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig, while Barcelona, Juventus and Monaco have all expressed interest in the teenager.

In-demand: Lucas Torreira.

Arsenal’s third summer signing – a £27m deal for Sampdoria defender Lucas Torreira – is all but confirmed, the Daily Mirror reports.

The Serie A club’s president, Massimo Ferrero, reportedly let slip live on Italian television that the Uruguay international’s departure was happening.

Torreira, 22, joined Sampdoria in 2015 from Pescara for a reported 1.5 million euros (£1.32m).

Ferrero is said to have let the cat out of the bag while discussing how the club uses the transfer market to make handsome sums by developing players – and they do not sell unless they get “excellent offers”.

Torreira would follow Juventus’ Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno in moving to the Emirates as part of Unai Emery’s pre-debut overhaul.
