09:30 UPDATE: Juve want Poch

Juventus are planning to scoop two of Tottenham’s most valuable players in a bid to secure Mauricio Pochettino, reports in Italy claim.

Massimiliano Allegri will leave Juventus at the end of the season and Express Sport understands Juventus are eager to bring Mauricio Pochettino to the club.

And in a bid to circumnavigate the termination clause in the Spurs boss’ contract, the Italian club are preparing bids for both Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier, according to Tutto Mercato Web.

That would see Juventus hand over a sizeable fee to prise Eriksen or Trippier away from Tottenham, along with prime managerial target Pochettino.

09:00 UPDATE: Ryan Kent delay

Steven Gerrard could look to swoop for another Liverpool loanee this summer.

The Light Blues boss brought Ryan Kent and Ovie Ejaria from Liverpool to Ibrox last summer, while he also picked up former Reds defender Jon Flanagan on a free transfer in January.

Kent revealed he would be open to staying in Scotland as he declared that he does not want to continue being loaned out to different clubs.

But with the £12million-rated forward’s future currently unclear, Gerrard is reportedly keen to take advantage of his Anfield ties to bring in another of the club’s wide men.

Gerrard – who has a strong knowledge of the Liverpool academy having acted as under-18s boss for the Reds for a season – is said to be keen on Sheyi Ojo.

08:15 UPDATE: Paul Pogba to Real Madrid latest

Manchester United are likely to accept a £160million or more offer for Paul Pogba from Real Madrid.

That’s the opinion of Spanish football expert Guillem Balague who has opened up on the future of the midfielder.

“Let me tell you the latest on Pogba,” Balague said on his YouTube channel. “Zinedine Zidane continues to say he’s the one I want.

“He thinks that he may actually play with two holding midfielders, Casemiro and somebody else in the middle, perhaps Valverde, perhaps another one, and would allow Pogba to play in front of them.

“That will be the plan. So if Real Madrid are serious about it and they want to put £160m plus on the table, I wonder if Manchester United will basically listen.”

08:00 UPDATE: Gianluigi Donnarumma to Man Utd

Manchester United are preparing to make a move for AC Milan keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma amid reports David de Gea has turned down the club’s final contract offer.

Donnarumma is under contract until 2024 but his salary, reported to be €6million (£5.3m) a year, could be too expensive to maintain if AC Milan miss out on the financial boosts that come with playing in the Champions League.

Calciomercato reports a bid between €60m (£53m) and €70m (£62m) could be enough to tempt Milan into allowing their young keeper to leave Italy.

Mancheser United’s interest in Donnarumma comes at a time when their own keeper David de Gea turned down the club’s final contract offer, reports The Sun.

07:45 UPDATE: Wanted – Samuel Chukwueze

Jurgen Klopp is interested in signing Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze.

That’s according to the Metro, who claim Liverpool are prepared to AXE Xherdan Shaqiri to finance the deal.

07:30 UPDATE: Antoine Griezmann condition

Manchester United will only sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides to play him alongside Marcus Rashford, according to journalist Duncan Castles.

“We know that Manchester United have tried to get this player before,” he told The Transfer Window podcast.

“I think the question I would have over whether they go for him this summer having been alerted to his availability is: do they have a place for him in the team?

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that he wants Rashford to be the point striker, to be the first-choice goalscorer for the team and I think unless your plan would be to play Griezmann alongside Rashford.”

07:15 UPDATE: Maurizio Sarri latest

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri will discuss his future with the club following the Europa League final against Arsenal as he wants “to know if they are happy” with him.

Italian Sarri, who has two years remaining on his contract but who has been linked with a move to Juventus, insists he is content to remain at Stamford Bridge.

The boss said: “I have two years of my contract here. I have no contract with other clubs. I have to speak with my club after the final. I want to know if they are happy with me.”

Asked if he was happy to remain at Chelsea, he replied: “I’m very happy to stay in the Premier League, with Chelsea, one of the most important clubs in the Premier League.”

07:00 UPDATE: Arsenal transfer talks

Arsenal have already started their summer recruitment plans and have enough “ammunition” to convince targets to join, according to head of football Raul Sanllehi.

“What I can tell you is that we have identified very clearly and unanimously with our head coach and technical people, we know what we want to prioritise and we’re very clear on what our priorities are,” Sanllehi said.

“We’re already in the market and we’re already talking with the people that can help us to cover those positions and I feel quite strong.

“Many players really want us to be there also when we’re talking with them, but I feel quite strong on the inputs that I’m getting so far.”
