ANTHONY MARTIAL

Manchester United are set to exercise a one-year option on Anthony Martial’s contract, the Manchester Evening News reports.

The Frenchman has been angling for a move away from Old Trafford with his agent confirming the player’s desire to leave last month but the Red Devils are determined to keep him at the club.

“After thinking about all the factors and possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United,” Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley has said.

A lack of playing time under Jose Mourinho has left the 22-year-old frustrated with the likes of Tottenham interested in swooping in for his signature.

DOMAGOJ VIDA

West Ham United have been among the more active Premier League clubs in the transfer market this summer but have had their latest pursuit rebuffed.

Beskitas have turned down a £20 million bid from the Hammers for Domagoj Vida, according to Turkish outlet Aksam (H/T Sport Witness).

The versatile defender was one of the stars of Croatia’s incredible run to the finals of the World Cup in Russia where they eventually lost to France.

The Turkish outfit insist West Ham meet their asking price of £23 million for Vida with Liverpool and Everton also interested in the defender.

EDEN HAZARD

Chelsea are determined to be properly compensated should they allow Eden Hazard to join Real Madrid. The Stamford Bridge club have told Los Blancos to pay up if they are keen on the Belgian star, the Mirror reports.

The Blues have warned Madrid that even £170 million may not be enough to prise the world class talent away.

Hazard has two years left on his contract and has voiced his desire to move away from west London, hinting that the Santiago Bernabeu would be his preferred destination. However, Chelsea are adamant they won’t sell him cheaply as Barcelona attempt to lure Willian away as well.

NEYMAR

Neymar has once again denied reports suggesting he could move to Real Madrid this summer.

When questioned about stories in Spanish media linking the Paris Saint-Germain forward to a Santiago Bernabeu switch, he dismissed them as mere “speculation from the press.”

“The guys who come up with these stories seem to know more about my life than I do,” the 26-year-old told AFP.

“I won’t respond to this type of question because nothing happened,” he scoffed.

Neymar moved to PSG from Barcelona for a world record €222 million last year and links to Madrid have gathered pace this month since Cristiano Ronaldo left the Spanish capital for Juventus.

YANN SOMMER

Despite already signing a new goalkeeper in Bernd Leno this summer, Arsenal are attempting to secure the services of Yann Sommer as well.

The Express claims the Gunners are in advanced talks with Borussia Monchengladbach for the custodian.

Unai Emery’s side signed Leno for £19 million from Bayer Leverkusen but appear determined to add to their options between the sticks with Petr Cech expected to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer.

Sommer featured as Switzerland’s number one during the World Cup in Russia and has impressed in the Bundesliga over the last few years.
