KIERAN TRIPPIER

Not satisfied with just the two Spain right-backs, Real Madrid are planning to venture further afield to nab one of the best players at this summer’s World Cup – that’s according to a report in The Sun.

Sources close to the player have apparently revealed Los Blancos’ intense interest in Kieran Trippier, whose dead-eye set-pieces and all-round superb play helped England all the way to the semi-finals.

Given that Tottenham flogged another England right-back in Kyle Walker to Man City for £50 million last summer, it would surely take at least that amount again for Real to land the 27-year-old Trippier. Would they spend that much given they have Dani Carvajal and Alvaro Odriozola?

MIRALEM PJANIC

First they’re interested in Gonzalo Higuain, next they’re intrigued by Daniele Rugani … now, Chelsea are reportedly keen on another Juventus maestro in Miralem Pjanic.

Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla claims that the Blues wanted Chelsea regardless of signing Napoli man Jorginho – who they bagged last week – to complete their midfield transformation.

No fee has been mentioned but Juventus could either offer the Bosnia international a contract extension or hear what Maurizio Sarri’s men have to say in regards to a transfer.

WILLIAN

Willian produced a stunning display for Brazil.

For some reason, every superpower on the planet has seemingly set their sights on Willian this summer – that’s if you believe the hype.

But Barcelona, who are no strangers to making shock moves for a Brazilian seemingly beneath them (see Paulinho), are apparently intent on landing the Chelsea man this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Barca have lodged a third bid worth £55 million for the 29-year-old winger, who has served Chelsea well over the last five years but hardly lit the World Cup on fire with Brazil.

JOE HART

These are worrying times for Chelsea fans. They could lose Willian, Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois … and now they fear the latter will be replaced by fallen star Joe Hart.

The Sun have reported that the Blues are looking for a cut-price deal of around £5m to land the former England No1 who has sunk into ignominy – ending up at West Ham’s reserve goalie on loan last season.

The sticking point for teams negotiating with Manchester City has been Hart’s wages but – if true – Maurizio Sarri clearly believes he can coax the best out of the 31-year-old shadow of his former self.

RICHARLISON

Having been beaten to the punch by Roma for Bordeaux flyer Malcom, it is understood by ESPN and various other sources that Everton are willing to fork out £50m for Watford’s Richarlison.

While it is true that the 21-year-old made for some extremely exciting moments at Vicarage Road last season, the wide forward has yet to notch an assist in 2018 after his form tailed off in the latter half of the season.

Marco Silva has undoubtedly told the Toffees’ higher-ups that the Brazilian is a special talent, having worked with him before his acrimonious departure from Watford in January.
