James to Man Utd?
Manchester United are set to spend in excess of £200m in the summer transfer window.
According to the Evening Standard, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to strengthen every area of his squad.
Solskjaer is close to making his first signing despite competition from Monaco from Swansea winger Daniel James.
Old Trafford bosses are close to striking an agreement with the Championship club for the Wales international.
De Ligt to Liverpool?
Liverpool are threatening to hijack Manchester United and Barcelona in the race for Ajax ace Matthijs De Ligt.
The Holland international is expected to leave the Champions League semi-finalists after a stunning campaign.
According to Bild, Liverpool have entered the race for his signature, despite their strength at the back.
It is claimed De Ligt could be Jurgen Klopp’s ‘next triumph’ after winning the Champions League.
Meunier to Arsenal?
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has personally held talks with Paris Saint-Germain ace Thomas Meunier over a move, according to Paris United.
The Gunners face competition from Manchester United, however, who are on the lookout for a successor to Antonio Valencia at right-back.
Meunier has admitted talks over his future, telling Le Parisien: “There have been phone calls since January with interested clubs.
“There are a dozen clubs, all of which are in the top five of their leagues.”
Hudson-Odoi staying at Chelsea?
Starsport understands Chelsea are increasingly confident Callum Hudson-Odoi will sign a new contract committing his future to the club in the next few weeks.
The 18-year-old England starlet’s hopes of leaving Stamford Bridge for Bayern Munich were effectively dashed by his Achilles injury.
And while the German giants still maintain a strong interest in the player, they have moved on to other targets.
Chelsea are now set to offer fresh terms worth around £100,000-a-week to Hudson-Odoi, who is entering the final year of his contract.
