NEVER any shortage of rumours and gossip in the Sunday papers – we pick out the best (and worst) of the speculation stories…and rate them accordingly.
Leicester face losing Demarai Gray for £12m this summer with Liverpool, Everton and Spurs all tracking the winger Sunday Mirror 8/10
If Leicester get relegated he will definitely move. But the Foxes will want more than £12million.
Everton are set to make a £40m double swoop for Burnley defender Michael Keane and Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. The Sun on Sunday 7/10
Would make good business sense – as both a likely to be England internationals for many years to come. Keane has already made his mark. Pickford will follow.
Chelsea are prepared to offer 26-year-old forward Eden Hazard, who has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, a new deal. Sunday Telegraph 6/10
Chelsea should do everything to keep him. He seems happier this season than last – he’ll be even happier WHEN the Blues win the league.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is planning to rescue Jermain Defoe from relegation with Sunderland – and keep his England dream alive. The Sun on Sunday 5/10
The south coast club holds fond memories for Defoe who scored ten goals in successive game whilst on loan from West Ham – a Football League record.
Galatasaray are keen to sign Tottenham’s 22-year-old forward Vincent Janssen, who has scored just one goal from open play since joining Spurs last summer. Mail on Sunday 2/10
It’s been a difficult start to his Spurs career, but I think Janssen has turned the corner and will shine in the long run. Poch will keep him.
West Ham are targeting Reading boss Jaap Stam to replace Slaven Bilic as pressure grows on the Hammers manager. Sunday Mirror 5/10
Sure, West Ham are going through a sticky patch – again! – but it’s time to keep the faith.
