Mount remains Liverpool’s priority, Osimhen’s mammoth asking price, Arsenal and Spurs chasing Bundesliga star, and more.

Arsenal

Arsenal’s latest proposal to Reiss Nelson is for a contract valid until June 2027 plus a one-year option. A short-term deal was also discussed and then rejected weeks ago. Talks are now ongoing over a long-term deal — but Nelson has bids from Italy, England and France.

Arsenal and Tottenham scouts have monitored Edmond Tapsoba in recent games but the race is absolutely open — Bayer Leverkusen will only sell for a huge bid, but he looks like one to watch in this summer’s market.

Aston Villa

Douglas Luiz: “I believe in the Aston Villa project, so that’s why I decided to stay. It’s exciting to be a part of this new era. Why wouldn’t I stay? Everything is going well. But in football, everything happens quite quickly.”

Barcelona

Jordi Alba leaves Barcelona. Spanish left-back will part ways with the club — it’s over after many years together. Alba will try a new chapter as a free agent. Alba leaves Barca to help the club through their difficult financial situation. Xavi and Laporta let him decide as he deserved that.

Bayern Munich

Napoli wants as much as €150m for Victor Osimhen. This is too expensive for Bayern Munich, so they are targeting Randal Kolo Muani instead.

Borussia Dortmund

Official, confirmed. Mats Hummels has signed a new deal at Borussia Dortmund as expected. He said: “I’m ready to give my best for this club as always.”

Borussia director Sebastian Kehl on Jude Bellingham: “In terms of bids, there’s still nothing on the table. There are rumours, but there’s nothing on the table.”

Real Madrid always planned to submit an official bid for Bellingham after this week to respect Dortmund in the Bundesliga title race.

Brighton

No concrete or fresh talks between Brighton and Shakhtar Donetsk for Mykola Matvienko, it’s not something close or advanced at this stage. No negotiations after the €16m bid was turned down last January.

Brighton are currently not working on the Davide Frattesi deal despite the recent reports. De Zerbi confirms: “For sure Frattesi’s a top player but we need different characteristics.”

De Zerbi: “I hope Levi Colwill can play with us next year, but it’s the decision of Chelsea. He’s a top player for us. Robert Sanchez? I can’t do anything. If he wants (to stay next season), for sure, but I decide the first XI.”

Chelsea

Chelsea still wants more than £80m for Mason Mount, with a contract extension now looking unlikely despite Mauricio Pochettino’s efforts. He’s a priority target for Liverpool, while Manchester United also want him, and Arsenal could be there too.

Following a conversation between coach and player, a mutual decision has been made for Raheem Sterling to sit out the upcoming internationals. Sterling will focus on recuperating his body in preparation for the upcoming season. Raheem is still very much a part of Gareth Southgate’s plans.

Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi: “I hope Levi Colwill can play with us next year, but it’s the decision of Chelsea. He’s a top player for us.”

Fulham

Tony Khan confirms the plan for Marco Silva to stay: “I am very positive about Marco staying, he is very happy at Fulham and all of us are very happy with him. We want that to continue, hopefully for a very long time.”

Inter Milan

Alessandro Bastoni on new long-term deal: “I feel very good here at Inter, I’m on the same page with the club. I think we will continue together, the new deal is close.”

Bastoni’s new contract will be signed soon — valid until June 2028 for €5m net per season plus add-ons.

Hakan Calhanoglu will sign a new deal in the next few days — it’s all done and sealed, and a contract will be valid until June 2027.

“There’s an agreement in principle, I’m so happy to continue here,” he told Sky.

Juventus

Juventus have offered Adrien Rabiot a new contract, but it looks unlikely that he’ll decide to stay at the club amid interest from Manchester United, while Bayern Munich also like the player.

No changes on Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria’s future. Both are expected to leave Juventus at the end of the current season. Paredes will return to PSG but he will be allowed to leave, he’s on the market. Di Maria will explore options as a free agent.

Liverpool

Liverpool are advancing on the Alexis Mac Allister deal, but the situation of Mason Mount also remains a priority for the Reds. It looks difficult for Chelsea to extend Mount’s contract, even though Mauricio Pochettino would like to keep him. One issue that makes the deal complicated is that Chelsea will insist on really important money to let him go, especially to another Premier League club.

Manchester United

A new striker is considered absolutely crucial for Manchester United this summer. For now, nothing has changed with Harry Kane, it will depend on Tottenham’s future and new manager, and they will try to extend his contract. Kane is considered the perfect striker for Erik ten Hag, but there are no talks yet.

Victor Osimhen is also on Manchester United’s list, as well as Chelsea’s. Some reports have mentioned a €110-115m price tag, but it will be a lot more than that, closer to €150m. This is too expensive for Bayern Munich, so they are targeting Randal Kolo Muani instead.

Manchester United are still interested in Adrien Rabiot after talks collapsed last summer. The Frenchman is appreciated by Erik ten Hag. However, nothing is advanced yet as there are many clubs in the race and timing depends on club sales. Juve offered him a new deal but his staying there looks unlikely. Bayern Munich also likes the player.

Erik ten Hag when asked about reports of Neymar being a Manchester United transfer target: “When we have news… we will tell you.”

Manchester United are advancing in talks to extend Diogo Dalot’s contract. The conversations are going very well. The club’s plan remains to keep Dalot and get a new long-term deal done. There’s confidence to reach an agreement soon.

PSV

Ruud van Nistelrooy has left his position as manager of PSV Eindhoven with immediate effect. He won’t even be in charge of the team during the last game against AZ. The 46-year-old won the Dutch Cup and the Dutch Super Cup in his only season in charge.

Real Madrid

Borussia director Sebastian Kehl on Jude Bellingham: “In terms of bids, there’s still nothing on the table. There are rumours, but there’s nothing on the table.”

Real Madrid always planned to submit an official bid for Bellingham after this week to respect Dortmund in the Bundesliga title race.

Real Sociedad

Asier Illarramendi leaves Real Sociedad as a free agent at the end of the current season. The former Real Madrid midfielder will be available for free on the market.

Southampton

Official: Southampton confirms in a club statement that Ruben Selles leaves his position as manager at the end of the season.

Russell Martin will be Southampton’s new head coach, full agreement is in place — a statement is expected soon. Martin will sign a three-year deal as the new Southampton head coach, done and sealed — the contract will also include an option for a further year.

Jason Wilcox’s appointment was instrumental in this appointment to propel the type of football Southampton want to play.

Tottenham

Negotiations will take place in the next hours between Feyenoord and Arne Slot’s representative to discuss the conditions of his potential departure. Compensation will be a crucial point. Tottenham will be informed of talks as Slot is the frontrunner for the Spurs job, though other candidates remain on their list as well.

Spurs and Arsenal scouts have monitored Edmond Tapsoba in recent games but the race is absolutely open — Bayer Leverkusen will only sell for a huge bid, but he looks like one to watch in this summer’s market.
