Petr Cech looks set to leave Chelsea this summer and Arsenal are very keen to sign him, while Manchester City’s pursuit of Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne continues – the top stories from the morning’s papers.
Arsenal to move for Cech
PETR Cech looks set to leave Chelsea this summer and Arsenal are very keen to sign him, according to the Daily Mail, – but the paper claims the club want confirmation that they will be allowed to compete for his signature before they work on bringing the goalkeeper to the Emirates.
Chelsea have said that they will let Cech leave for £10 million, but the Gunners are concerned that negotiations may be more complicated for a Premier League rival like themselves.
Still, Arsenal want to sign Cech and so are attempting to line up the move already with talks in advance of the summer.
Chelsea ready to resume chase for Douglas Costa
Jose Mourinho is ready to put a £20 million bid in front of Shakhtar Donetsk in hopes of signing Douglas Costa.
The Mirror believe that the Blues’ interest did not fade after an unsuccessful bid to buy him in January and want to get a deal done with Shakhtar before Real Madrid, Barcelona and the other big English clubs get involved.
City want Sterling and de Bruyne
Manchester City’s summer rebuild may be centred on Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne.
The club are widely expected to clean house this summer and make a slew of signings as they hope to construct a younger team and The Mirror believe that they want Sterling and de Bruyne to be at the heart of it.
City could offer as much as £40 million for de Bruyne, as well as giant wages for Sterling.
Spurs may need Champions League to keep Lloris
Hugo Lloris may leave Tottenham for a mere £15 million this summer if the club don’t qualify for the Champions League.
The Sun understands that the goalkeeper’s new contract with Spurs includes a clause that allows him to leave if the club don’t finish in the top four.
Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid could all be interested in Lloris if he’s allowed to leave and Spurs won’t be able to do anything about it.Advertisement
