ISCO

Manchester City have identified the Real Madrid playmaker as a major summer target, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Los Blancos star, who has ended his campaign with the Whites strongly having struggled at the start of the season, is happy at the Bernabeu but City are still ready to launch a huge raid for his signature.

Isco has apparently always been a man of whom Etihad boss Pep Guardiola admires, with the Premier League champions being one of the few teams who could muster up a big offer in the region of €80 million (Dh342m).

Real could be set for a summer of change in the transfer window but Isco’s representatives have yet to come out and make any public comments on his future.

The former Malaga man has been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu.

STEPHAN LICHTSTEINER

The Gunners are closing in on a deal for the versatile Juventus star, according to The Guardian.

At 34, the veteran is available on a free transfer and new boss Unai Emery is reportedly a keen admirer of his talents.

Lichtsteiner, who operates at either right-back or in midfield, will captain his country at the World Cup in Russia as Switzerland face Brazil in Group E.

Arsenal are hoping to make him their first signing before the tournament kicks-off in June.

JOAO CANCELO

The Red Devils could strengthen their full-back options next season with the signing of the coveted Valencia star, The Mirror reports.

Valued at £30 million (Dh146m), the Portugal international spent this past season on loan at Inter Milan but has yet to make a long-term decision on his future.

United are hoping to beat Nerazzurri in the race to sign the defender, although the Italian giants do have an initial purchase option in place with the La Liga club.

The versatile right-back, who can also operate on the flank or as a makeshift left-back, is likely to replace Matteo Darmian and Luke Shaw, given the duo are headed towards the Old Trafford exit door.
