IVAN RAKITIC

Bayern Munich could be prepared to launch an €80m (Dh 363m) bid for the Barcelona star, according to Mundo Deportivo. The Croatian has been a starring presence at the Camp Nou since his arrival from Sevilla in 2014, but fears that the potential arrival of Antoine Griezmann and the signing of Arthur could put at risk his place in the starting XI. The Bundesliga champions hope to take advantage with a mega offer for the 30-year-old who has made 129 appearances for the Catalan giants.

RICHARLISON

Manchester United have joined a growing list of clubs interested in signing the highly-rated Watford striker, according to Sky Sports News. The Brazilian was quick to make an impact in the Premier League after joining from Fluminense last summer. Despite not scoring since November, Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and the Red Devils are all keeping tabs on the 20-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window. Jose Mourinho is set to overhaul his squad at the end of the season, with the futures of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in doubt.

N’GOLO KANTE

PSG have made the elusive Chelsea midfielder their top target of the summer transfer window, according to L’Equipe. The French publication are reporting that the Ligue 1 leaders are keen to find a long-term successor to Thiago Motta who is set to leave the club in June. Kante is believed to be the club’s key candidate for the role – with the French international attracted to the option of being back in his homeland. The 27-year-old has provided just one assist in 23 Premier League appearances this term for Chelsea.
