« Last post by Yomi on May 01, 2020, 10:35:28 AM »
Liverpool are reportedly interested in bringing Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly to Anfield during this summer's transfer window.

The 28-year-old has again been in impressive form for his Italian club this season, although he has been restricted to just 15 Serie A appearances due to injury.

Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have both been linked with a move amid suggestions that Napoli could be open to offers ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

However, according to TuttoMercatoWeb, Liverpool are also firmly in the hunt for the Senegal international and have already made contact with Gennaro Gattuso's side ahead of this summer's transfer window.

The report claims that the European champions have been in discussions with the Blues as they seek to bring in a new centre-back partner for Virgil van Dijk.

Koulibaly, who has made 233 appearances for his current side in all competitions, could allegedly be available in the next transfer window for a figure in the region of £70m.

Inter Milan Fans / Inter Milan 'urge Chelsea to drop Victor Moses valuation'
« Last post by Yomi on May 01, 2020, 10:34:30 AM »
Inter Milan are reportedly keen to sign Victor Moses on a permanent deal this summer but are not prepared to meet Chelsea's current asking price of €12m (£10m).
The 29-year-old spent the first half of the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Fenerbahce before joining Inter on a short-term deal during the January transfer window.

The Nigerian has contributed one assist in seven outings for Antonio Conte's side, but as it stands, he will return to Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to Calciomercato, Inter are keen on a permanent deal for Moses, but the Italian giants are not prepared to meet the €12m (£10m) valuation set by Frank Lampard's side.

The former Crystal Palace youngster played a key role in Chelsea's 2016-17 Premier League title success under the leadership of now Inter boss Conte.

Moses's existing deal with the Blues is due to expire in the summer of 2021.

AC Milan Fans / Arsenal 'lead AC Milan in Luka Jovic race'
« Last post by Yomi on May 01, 2020, 10:33:51 AM »
Arsenal are reportedly ahead of AC Milan in the race to sign Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic.

The 22-year-old scored 36 times in 75 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt ahead of a move to the Bernabeu, but he has struggled to make his mark in the Spanish capital.

The Serbian has managed just two goals in 24 outings for Zinedine Zidane's side, leading to suggestions that he could be moved on during this summer's transfer window.

Madrid are thought to be keen to keep the centre-forward after careful consideration, but there remains speculation surrounding his future.

Milan are understood to be interested in a deal, but according to Sport, Arsenal are at the head of the queue for the Serbia international, who 'occupies a leading role' in Mikel Arteta's thinking.

Jovic scored his first goal for Madrid against Leganes in La Liga at the end of October before registering his second against Osasuna on February 9.

Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek reportedly remains on the radar of Manchester United ahead of the next transfer window.
At a time when the Premier League giants are said to be considering the sale of Paul Pogba, speculation naturally persists over a potential replacement.

According to reports in Spain, United are ready to move for Van de Beek, who is expected to depart Ajax before the beginning of the next campaign.

Before the Eredivisie was declared null and void last month, the 23-year-old had contributed eight goals and five assists from 23 appearances.

Although Real Madrid have also been linked with the Netherlands international, it remains unclear whether Los Blancos will be able to fund a move for the playmaker.

Van de Beek has just over two years remaining on his contract with Ajax.

Chelsea Fans / Chelsea open to Michy Batshuayi sale?
« Last post by Yomi on May 01, 2020, 10:31:10 AM »
Chelsea are reportedly happy to cash in on forward Michy Batshuayi during the next transfer window.
Since moving to Stamford Bridge in 2016, Batshuayi has never been regarded as first choice, with his eight Premier League goals coming from five starts and 43 substitute appearances.

Although the Belgium international has remained a part of Frank Lampard's squad this season, the 26-year-old has netted just once in all competitions since October 30.

Aware that Batshuayi has just over a year left on his contract, HLN claims that West Ham United are keen to do a deal with their London rivals.

However, given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, the report adds that Chelsea must be willing to lower their alleged valuation of £40m.

While contracted to the Blues, Batshuayi has also spent loan periods at Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace respectively, scoring 18 goals from 50 outings.

Liverpool Fans / Simon Mignolet 'No regrets over Liverpool exit'
« Last post by Yomi on May 01, 2020, 10:30:40 AM »
Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has insisted that Alisson Becker's injury issues have not resulted in him regretting his exit from Liverpool.
After being demoted to the substitutes' bench at Anfield, Mignolet left for Club Brugge last summer, where he has made 39 appearances in all competitions.

Although the Belgian would have spent a considerable amount of time in Liverpool's first team this season, the 32-year-old has maintained that he made the right decision.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Mignolet said: "I knew that could be the case because he had come back from a long season with the Copa America and of course there is always a risk.

"I chose to leave not for that because even if I had played 10 or 15 games, you know when Ali gets back with what he has proven and the level he is at, he will always go back to the starting XI.

"Even if you play 15 games and keep 15 clean sheets in an unbelievable manner, you would still go back to the bench and that is not the thing I wanted to do at the age of 32. I knew that was a scenario that could pan out, but I still would have made the same decision I did today."

During his six years on Merseyside, Mignolet made 204 appearances in all competitions.

Borussia Dortmund Fans / Real Madrid, Barcelona 'join Jadon Sancho race'
« Last post by Yomi on May 01, 2020, 10:28:58 AM »
Barcelona and Real Madrid are reportedly both interested in signing Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho during this summer's transfer window.
The 20-year-old has again been in excellent form for BVB this season, scoring 17 times and contributing 19 assists in 35 appearances in all competitions.

Manchester United are thought to lead the race for the England international, who is expected to leave Lucien Favre's side this summer despite the current uncertainty in the world of football.

According to Bild, though, the Red Devils are likely to face competition from both Barca and Madrid for the right-sided attacker.

The report claims that Spain's two biggest clubs have joined the race for the former Manchester City youngster, who is believed to be valued in excess of £100m by his German club.

Sancho has scored 31 times and registered 42 assists in 90 outings for Dortmund since swapping English football for the Bundesliga ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has said that finishing the 2019/2020 Premier League season would be good for everyone.

DAILY POST recalls that the Premier League is currently suspended indefinitely, with nine matches remaining due to the Coronavirus pandemic across the globe.

Mourinho, who was criticized earlier this month after he broke UK government-imposed COVID-19 lockdown rules by holding a training session with three of his players, is keen to get back to business again, but only if it is safe to do so behind closed doors.

“If we play the remaining nine matches this season, it will be good for every one of us,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“It will be good for football and the Premier League.

“If we play football behind closed doors, I would like to think that football is never behind closed doors. With cameras, it means that millions and millions are watching.

Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has admitted players are “scared” about resuming Premier League action as the COVID-19 outbreak lingers on, the UK Mirror reports.

Some clubs have already began training, with the players placed on an individual workout in compliance with social distancing rules.

On Friday, the 20 top flight teams will hold further discussions, on how the season can be restarted.

Part of the ‘Project Restart’ discussions will centre around the use of approved venues, which may mean teams playing on neutral grounds.

Aguero has now claimed that some players have reservations about returning.

He said: “The majority of players are scared because they have family, they have children, they have babies, parents.

“When we go back, I imagine that we will be very tense, we will be very careful, and the moment someone feels ill, you will think: “What’s gone on there?” I hope there is a vaccine so all this ends.

“It does scare me, but I have just been here with my girlfriend. I haven’t had contact with other people.

“They say that there are people who have it but who don’t have symptoms and they can infect you. That’s why I’ve stayed at home. You can be infected and you don’t know anything about it.”
