WE’VE got our own view on what’s hot and what’s not in today’s gossip columns – check out some of the transfer stories doing the rounds, and let us know your thoughts….


Tottenham are targeting a shock summer move for Juventus and Brazil star Dani Alves and have already opened preliminary discussions. Daily Star 0/10

Absolute garbage! Mauricio Pochettino’s plan is to develop his young, vibrant squad – not disrupt it by bringing in a 34-year-old with only a couple of miles left on the clock.

Kyle Walker will leave Tottenham this summer, with Chelsea reportedly joining Manchester United and Manchester City in the race for his signature. Daily Star 6/10

May well be something in this. Walker has not looked himself of late having had his nose pushed out of join by the exciting Kieran Trippier.

Manchester City and Manchester United are leading Chelsea and Arsenal in the battle to sign Stoke keeper Jack Butland. Daily Mirror 5/10

All would be better off making a move for Sunderland’s Jordan Pickford – England’s future No.1.

Chelsea are still leading the race to land Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk. The Independent 3/10

The talented Dutchman is more likely to go to Manchester City where Pep Guardiola sees him as the long-term replacement for Vincent Kompany.

Everton have targeted Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gylfi Sigurdsson as possible replacements for contract rebel Ross Barkley. The Sun 4/10

Don’t see the Ox leaving after playing more games than ever this season – Sigurdsson might be more realistic. But Paul Clement will not want to lose his main man.

Chelsea have reportedly made contact with Romelu Lukaku’s entourage ahead of a £70m summer bid. The Sun 2/10

Tell us something we don’t know. Old news. Chelsea should never have let him go in the first place – now it’s going to cost a fortune to bring him back.
