THE rumour mill just never stops turning – whatever the weather or time of year – and we rate the latest outpourings from the daily papers…
West Ham have spoken to Arsenal about the possibility of signing striker Lucas Perez this summer. The Times 3/10
They may well have spoken to the Gunners but will have got a ‘thanks, but no thanks’ response. Perez is going to be a top player – in red and white, not claret and blue.
Manchester United and Barcelona target Marco Verratti has told his agent to listen to offers to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The Sun 8/10

Rising Tottenham star Harry Winks is being eyed up by the Spanish national side because of his Spanish grandparents. The Sun 0/10
Not going to happen in a month of Sundays. Gareth Southgate will make the first move – mark my words. This boy is a star in the making.
Roy Hodgson is considering dropping into the Championship with Norwich to revive his managerial career after his England position. Daily Mirror 5/10
Roy is always a good option but does it represent a long-term for the Canaries? Think not.
