THE transfer window is almost upon us and the daily papers are already cranking up the rumour mill. So let’s have a look at what’s hot and what’s not today…
Bournemouth striker Joshua King appears set to stay at the south coast club despite being linked with moves to West Ham and Tottenham. Daily Star 7/10
King will certainly be hot property this summer after his 16 Premier League goals to date – Spurs would be his better option. But expect interest from up north.
Liverpool have slapped a £30m price tag on misfit Mamadou Sakho after his successful Crystal Palace loan spell. Independent and Guardian 5/10
Sakho has already been told he has not future at Anfield – but a £30million valuation is a bit extreme. And not enough to cover the cost of Virgil Van Dijk.
Everton are considering a bid for Las Palmas centre half Mauricio Lemos as part of a £75m summer spree they hope will see Gylfi Sigurdsson, Michael Keane and Andre Gray arrive at Goodison. Daily Telegraph 4/10
The Toffees will need more than £75million to land those four – might need another £25m added to the transfer pot.
Everton are interested in signing West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini as Ronald Koeman searches for creativity. Daily Mirror 3/10
Intrigued to know where all this cash is going to come from. Slaven Bilic will be reluctant to sell.
Manchester City are stepping up their interest in AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and are favourites to sign the teenager this summer. Daily Mail 3/10
I’ve lost all faith in Pep Guardiola’s judge of goalkeepers – especially after the way he treated Joe Hart.
Half a story. Who actually is this ‘unnamed club’? If there is one at all. Agent stoking the fire yet again.
