ED001,

Do you rate Frimpong?

Would you consider him an upgrade on Dalot if Utd were to pursue a deal for him?

Thanks

{Ed001's Note - he is a very good player, but he is not a full-back, he played almost as a winger for Leverkusen last season. Very, very attacking, though not quite an out and out winger. I am not sure he is suited to playing in a back 4.}

Are PSG signing Joao Neves ed002? Lots of reports the deal is close. Many thanks :)

{Ed002's Note - Joao Neves (DM/CM) Discussed with Chelsea when meeting over another player as they were seeking a replacement for Loftus-Cheek last summer. Potential Casemiro replacement for Manchester United. Huge buy out clause and Benfica will not look to sell but recognise there will be growing interest and will insist that the buy out clause is met in full. Player is not keen on a new contract. Liverpool and Manchester City have sent scouts. PSG consider him an option to replace Ugarte and have offered cash plus two players - and they are confident they can sign him but will need to tweak the offer. Versatile but falls over easily. I expect Manchester United to want to avoid an auction with PSG even having a first offer rejected.}

Ed002 is there any interest in goncalo ramos and kolo muani? Any chance of them leaving? And who is interested in gustavo nunes? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Gonçalo Ramos (F/AM) It has not worked out well in Paris but his value will not even be close to the €80M PSG paid for him. Prior interest of Roma, Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Wolves will have gone. Atletico interest remains.
Randal Kolo Muani (F) Atletico may offer a way out but it is dependent on Osimhen.
Gustavo Nunes (LW/AM) Agent has been hawking Nunes around European sides but unless an English club pay well over the odds he would have to be signed as an Exception and PL clubs will look to avoid going down that route. Only interest I know of is from Urawa Red Diamonds in the J League but it will depend on whether they opt for Ekanit Panya.}

Any interest in Dani Olmo this summer ed? thank you

{Ed002's Note - Dani Olmo (AM/W) Could still be sold this summer if a significant offer were to be made that is close to his €60M termination Clause. Atletico, Spurs, Manchester City and Barcelona were interested, although Barcelona have preferred options in Williams and Diaz and need to sell to buy or horse trade - they may be the only interested side left although I would not discount Manchester City. The player is keen to move to Barcelona. Chelsea considered him as a Mason Mount replacement last summer but have preferred options now. Manchester United or Liverpool may offer a wildcard option. Bayern Munich interest has gone due to injury concerns.}

Ed002 who is interested in mitoma and bynoe gitens

{Ed002's Note - Kaoru Mitoma (LW) Fortunate to get a Work Permit initially and Brighton has no interest in selling him but Barcelona, Manchester City and Manchester United see him as an option.

Jamie Bynoe-Gittens (LW/RW) Scouted by Barcelona, Newcastle, Chelsea and PSG, Borussia Dortmund will not want to sell but may consider a loan with Adeyemi ahead of him. Ex Chelsea and Manchester City acadamies. Will stay where he is.}

Hey Ed, anyone interested in Maximilian Beier from Hoffenheim? Searched, but didn't find anything on the european page. Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Maximilian Beier (S/F) Opted for a contract extension at Hoffenheim over a move to Brentford after a loan at Hannover last summer. Seen as a potential Hlozek replacement for Bayer Leverkusen or a Sesko Replacement for RBL. Everton, Aston Villa, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Luton have sent scouts to watch the player. May be available in the summer but question mark over his suitability for the PL.}

Hi Ed002, would you mind telling me who is interested in Diogo Costa? He had a fantastic tournament from what I saw and GK’s with his ability seem few and far apart especially at such a tender age.

Another lad I have heard promising things about is Sverre Nypan of Rosenborg, is there interest in him or is he considered to young and raw at the moment?

{Ed002's Note - Diogo Costa (G) Manchester United need to make a decision over their goalkeepers moving forward, and Costa is a player they have been looking at as their preferred choice, but other have also been looking. With ten Hag staying it is likely Onana will stay as well. Spurs interest has gone, Chelsea have a preferrred option but should not be discounted, and Roma need to replace the aging Rui Patrício, but will be priced out of a move. Porto will resist a sale unless and offer of €80M plus arrives.}

Ed002 who is interested in joel hato

{Ed002's Note - Jorrel Hato (CB/LB) Kiddie who is well thought of but Ajax were concerned that clubs from England, including Brighton and Arsenal, and Spain were speaking illegally with his agent about the future of the player when he was only 17. They did not make any complaint to UEFA but made matters clear to his agent. Liverpool and Dortmund have sent scouts but he will not be moving this summer and has signed a new contract. One for 2025 perhaps.}

Ed002 who is interested in malen

{Ed002's Note - Donyell Malen (RW/LW) Seen as surplus by Borussia Dortmund who are looking to make changes to the squad. They quoted Newcastle €60M in the summer. The player has made it clear he would be open to a move back to Arsenal. Team Mino have also offered him to Spurs, Liverpool and Manchester United - and will continue to look for a buyer. Will move in the summer and perhaps an exchange involving Sancho and cash would have worked but Manchester United were not keen - in retrospect a mistake.}

Ed002 who is interested in miguel gutierrez, solanke and jonathan david

{Ed002's Note - Miguel Gutierrez (LWB) Moved to Girona from Real Madrid who retain a nominal 50% of his rights and can buy him back for a fixed fee of double what they sold him for - so €8M total. Napoli will make a cash offer. All other interest has moved on. Napoli or he will stay where he is and play in the Champions League.
Dominic Solanke (S) One of a couple of Bournemouth players Spurs have been scouting. Newcastle have a declared interest. West Ham offered an option but Moyes departing would end their interest. A wildcard could be Milan - but at nothing close to his release clause.
Noting has changed with David since you last asked.}

Hi Ed, Hope you are well. Could you share if anyone is interested in Valencia GK Mamardashvili. Also could you the list of people PSG Is interested in

{Ed002's Note - Giorgi Mamardashvili (G) Agent offering him around the Premier League but nobody will pay his huge release clause but perhaps a figure closer to €50M. Newcastle have stepped away. Spurs are keen at a far lower price. Bayern Munich, Chelsea or Real Madrid may provide a option. Leicester interest will go nowhere. Valencia have a replacement in mind.

I don't have the time righht now to list PSG targets.}

I was wondering if you had time today? :)

No worries if not!

{Ed002's Note - Potential Departures:

Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) Do not completely rule out Luis Enrique looking to exchange Donnarumma for Kepa plus cash after the arrival of Matvei Safonov.
Achraf Hakimi (RB) With a rebuild planned Hakimi could make way. Interest of Real Madrid remains.
Nordi Mukiele (RB/CB) The "upgrade" to the departed Pavard that Thomas Tuchel was so keen on may not be of interest to Bayern Munich any longer. Available with PSG close to signing a replacement.
Layvin Kurzawa (LB) Will leave and can realistically expect to be no more than cover to move to Inter or Las Palmas. Mojo has gone.
Marquinhos (CB) Bit of a falling out between the club and player but PSG have rejected an offer from Al Nassr. Al-Ittihad or Bayern Munich may offer an option.
Manuel Ugarte (DM) Agent has said that the player and PSG may be open to a move if the right offer is made. He has spoken with Chelsea but it is difficult to see if they have a need. He has also spoken with Manchester United, Juventus, Newcastle, Milan, Spurs and Arsenal. I suspect Italy is the most likely destination but PSG might see any sale being dependent on adding Guimaraes although, right now, he appears to be heading elsewhere. Manchester United may well push to add him as a Casemiro replacement.
Warren Zaire-Emery (CM) Manchester City wanted to take him in the summer of 2024 when he is 18 and have spoken with PSG without luck. Borussia Dortmund offered an option. Will stay where he is with a new contract.
Renato Sanches (CM) Failed January departure to Besiktas who remain interested. Agent wants a move to England. Roma do not want to make his loan permanent. Offered to Benfica as part of an exchange deal.
Carlos Soler (CM) Looking to move on. Offered to Benfica as part of an exchange deal.
Vitinha (CM) An ever-present for PSG but agent is concerned PSG will look to upgrade in the summer. A CG replacement offered to Chelsea - perhaps not without some external influence. I expect him to stay.
Xavi Simons (CM/AM) PSG will talk to the player and assure him of game time and tell him he is not for sale. Barcelona would like him back but would need to persuade PSG to take players in exchange or accept an initial loan - that is not going to happen. Manchester City see him as another potential de Bruyne replacement. Bayern Munich has agreed personal terms with Simons' representatives but the club are a light year away in terms of valuation and will need to talk to PSG with the possibility of a player being used as part of a deal. A wildcard could be Chelsea if PSG press for Colwill. RBL would like a loan.
Ethan Mbappe (CM) Does not want to join the Real Madrid Castilla so will be taken in to the first team squad at Lille.
Gonçalo Ramos (F/AM) It has not worked out well in Paris but his value will not even be close to the €80M PSG paid for him. Prior interest of Roma, Nottingham Forest, Leeds, Wolves, Atletico will have gone.
Hugo Ekitike (F) Could be a huge mistake by Eintracht Frankfurt with form gone completely. Gone from PSG.
Kylian Mbappe (S) Off to Real Madrid.

Potential additions:

Matvei Safonov (G) Will join PSG and upset Donnarumma who could look to move on.
Kepa Arrizabalaga (G) Real Madrid fear the departure of Lunin and will look to another loan. As a wildcard, PSG are keen and may offer Donnarumma as part of an exchange with Chelsea.
Reece James (RB) Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern Munich maintain an interest. Real Madrid will push for next summer but are also looking to Alexander Arnold. Fitness and injuries may determine his immediate future having missed more than 75 games over the past three seasons. Value will be plummeting.
Lutsharel Geertruida (RB/CB/DM) Barcelona were keen to take the versatile Geertruida as cover but player wants guarantees of game time, so they can be discounted. The desired Pavard replacement for Bayern Munich from last summer who held talks over a transfer for last January but were turned away - they have now moved on. RBL are still looking to him. Of consideration by Chelsea if Reece James moves on in the summer, but they have preferred options. PSG, Spurs and Newcastle sent scouts and the former two have declared an interest with Feyenoord and have got as far as holding discussions. The player has made it clear to Feyenoord that he would like a move to PSG. I am not aware of any approach by Liverpool. One to watch in the future. Signed a new contract earlier in the year but Feyenoord may seek another extension if they wish to fend off Spurs and PSG. PSG will push very hard for a deal.
Gabriel Magalhaes (CB) Arsenal have rejected an approach from Juventus. PSG may make an approach and Arsenal have been looking at a potential replacement.
Ibrahima Konate (CB) Agent has been speaking with PSG, but down the list for them.
Rafa Marín (CB) Real Madrid youngster who Chelsea has an interest in. PSG are also keen.
William Saliba (CB) Arsenal remain concerned that Saliba will look to move to PSG who remain keen.
Leny Yoro (CB) Lille kiddie who already has PSG, Chelsea and Real Madrid declaring an interest. Manchester City and Manchester United have sent scouts. May have been noticed by Liverpool when scouting another player against Nantes, but Liverpool have preferred CB targets although they may be behind an offer that was made. Lille will resist a sale and continue to work on a new contract unless someone pays significantly over the odds for him - but if a new contract cannot be agreed they will need to reduce their asking price as he moves in to the final year of his contract. Lille have rejected "a stupid offer" of €50M but did not say which club made it - although Liverpool might be the club, but a good offer will see him leave. Lille have now said that there has been a request from Liverpool to be kept informed of progress after speaking with his agent. Chelsea has a preferred option but Real Madrid may push but knowing the player has made it clear he wants to join them - and that perhaps putting PSG off rather. Lille will ask for a player on loan as part of any deal with Real Madrid or Chelsea - with two specific players already discussed. Antonio Silva (CB) Benfica say that "many scouts" have been to watch the player - perhaps they are looking for someone to pay his €100M buy out clause - a move at that price seems unlikely but PSG and Manchester United are keen and he is first choice for Manchester United next summer but both PSG and Real Madrid should not be discounted. Juventus and Napoli would want a reduction in the asking price to make any move viable. Looked at by Spurs and Manchester City. For Liverpool perhaps a Konate replacement but very unlikely. Discussed with Chelsea during a conversation about another player and perhaps number two on their lengthy list of options but there is a part exchange option.
Goncalo Inacio (CB) Watched by scouts from a number of PL sides, including Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United, with each declaring an interest. Sporting will not be keen to do business with Liverpool although the club could potentially arrange to pay his full Release Clause in a single payment and force the situation if the player is interested - and that seems a strong possibility. The other sides to declare an interest are Newcastle and PSG, but PSG have a plan over another player but it is looking unlikely he will join - so Inacio might become the focus. Real Madrid offer a wildcard option. Sporting would rather not sell and are looking to a further new contract and an increased release clause. Newcastle have held talks with Sporting in order to be able to speak directly to the player and to understand if there is flexibility in the payment schedule – but there isn't. Arsenal interest would have departed with the signing of Timber although it has returned with the injury to Timber and impending departures. They are actively seeking talks with Sporting. The player has also been offered to Chelsea by his agent when discussing another player, but they have preferred options for a long-term Silva replacement although do have an interest in Inacio's CB partner Diomande. Arsenal have made a tentative offer that has been rejected. The player's agent has also said that Inacio is open to a move to Manchester United and they may push depending on departures.
Bruno Guimaraes (DM) Real Madrid and Barcelona maintain an interest but he is not top of the list for either although Barcelona may switch their attention to him but would want to offer players in any deal. Chelsea interest has likely gone but Manchester City remain very keen. Long-term Arsenal interest went with the signing of Rice although they are looking to replace Partey, Elneny and Jorginho and he may become first choice with Zubimendi likely not available. PSG will offer a summer option if Ugarte departs, which I expect he will.
Joao Neves (DM/CM) Discussed with Chelsea when meeting over another player as they were seeking a replacement for Loftus-Cheek last summer. Potential Casemiro replacement for Manchester United. Huge buy out clause and Benfica will not look to sell but recognise there will be growing interest and will insist that the buy out clause is met in full. Player is not keen on a new contract. Liverpool and Manchester City have sent scouts. PSG consider him an option to replace Ugarte and have offered cash plus two players. Versatile but falls over easily. I expect Manchester United to push even having a first offer rejected.
Alan Varela (DM) Barcelona may offer a profit to Porto and a player in exchange. PSG has a declared interest. An option for Manchester City to replace Phillips, but not first choice although they have spoken with Porto. Arsenal or Liverpool may provide an option having sent scouts but there is no declared interest. Dortmund will not match his buy out clause. Porto has no interest in selling the player who only joined them in the summer of 2023 unless someone offered his buy out clause in a single payment, then the player will be consulted.
Youssouf Fofana (CM/DM) Chelsea have strong ties with Monaco and the clubs have discussed him but he is not first choice for Chelsea. Manchester United may see him as an option but he would not be a direct Casemiro replacement. However, MIlan and Juventus have declared an interest and the wages would not be an issue with local tax laws and Milan are pushing now. Atletico offer an option - as do Aston Villa if the lose Douglas Luiz. Arsenal provide another option as they seek a replacement for Partey and Jorginho. A wildcard would be PSG or Spurs. Expect a deal with Milan.
Bernardo Silva (CM) PSG and Bayern Munich are keen. Barcelona offered an option but don't see value for money. Gut feeling is Bayern Munich may pay over the odds for him.
Khephren Thuram (DM/CM) Moving to Juventus.
Casemiro (DM) Manchester United would be willing to let him leave but will take a huge loss if sold. Michael Emenalo spoke of him as one option for Saudi clubs but will pe concerned about persistent injuries. PSG offer a wildcard option but only as cover.
Rayan Cherki (AM) PSG interest has gone.
Gavi (CM/AM) Barcelona will attempt to solve their Salary Cap issues and keep hold of the player. who will likely not want to leave, but the club have the continued harsh reality of needing to significantly reduce costs. ACL injury takes him out for the season and makes any move in the short term most unlikely.
Martin Odegaard (AM/CM) PSG has a declared interest but he is not first choice. Arsenal will likely want to keep him.
Kingsley Coman (LW/RW) With the arrival of Olise it seems Coman will be made available. Chelsea may still be keen and a part exchange may be possible, but they have concerns over his injury history. PSG could look to him being included as part of an exchange for Simons. I am not aware of interest from elsewhere but if Diaz were to leave Liverpool he would be an option to Chiesa to replace him.
Desire Doue (LW/RW/AM) The player is young and talented but rather moody and has decided to leave with him apparently desperate to move to PSG. Borussia Dortmund see him as a replacement for Jadon Sancho, and Manchester United want him to replace Antony. Arsenal, Spurs and RBL have sent scouts with Arsenal declaring an interest. Last summer Chelsea considered him as an AM on the advice of an ex-player and they will look again. Bayer Leverkusen will look to him as a potential Florian Wirtz replacement if needs be - but that will not be until 2025. A wildcard would be PSG or perhaps Bayern Munich. Rennes will seek €75M for him which will end most interest. PSG are pushing.
Johan Bakayoko (RW) Cost effective solution for PSG but may struggle to be a starter. Arsenal may settle on him as their preferred wide addition this summer ahead of Pedro Neto and have been speaking with his agent and his club. Liverpool have him down the list of potential Salah replacements but have not made any approach to PSV. Spurs and Brentford offer realistic options. Chelsea and Manchester City have sent scouts but have preferred options although his agents have been pushing him to Chelsea. Borussia Dortmund see him as an option to Sancho.
Rodrygo Goes (F/S) Real Madrid have no interest in selling but PSG did ask for him as part of a deal for Mbappe before he let his contract run down. Many Liverpool fans think there is some sort of pre-contract to join them, but of course there isn't. He agreed a new contract at Real Madrid and won't be moving anytime soon unless something like a €150M offer is made, or he could perhaps be offered to Liverpool in a part exchange for Alexander Arnold, which Real Madrid maybe open to - as it will bring in some cash as well. Manchester United sent scouts and Manchester City may try to do something this summer. There will always be interest in him and with Mbappe arriving he may need to make his way back to the RW position - although the wide positions are areas where Real Madrid want more depth. Chelsea are also interested if he becomes available. Will likely stay.
Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (LW) In late 2021 Torino, Borussia Dortmund and Lokomotiv Moscow were speaking with Rubin Kazan who said they were not willing to sell at that time. Previously the player had been watched by Bayern Munich and his agent had been hawking him around the Premier League clubs including Everton with, according to him, Leeds showing some interest. Ancelotti had been open to the idea of replacing Bolasie and Bernard with him but it was clear something was going on in the background. Obviously neither side would even be approached nowadays. Remarkably he was sold to Georgian side Dinamo Batumi for a small amount of money but well beyond their means in March 2022. For 3 months Napoli and Juventus discussed a deal with his agent and on July 1, 2022 he moved to Napoli, giving a small profit to Dinamo Batumi. A move to Spain with Real Sociedad was ruled out. Paratici had originally identified him for Juventus and it is was surprise Spurs did not follow up that interest. Roma waited too long to be a viable option. The transfers are potentially going to be looked at by UEFA still. PSG have a plan to take Khvicha Kvaratskhelia or Rafael Leao to replace Mbappe and I suspect they will lose out over Kvaratskhelia. Chelsea have a solution in mind involving another player which may suit Napoli, but they are difficult to deal with and discussions have not been fruitful. Napoli say they have no intention of selling and will offer a new contract - which I expect to be initially rejected. Agent is yet again saying the player wants to move on but Napoli are insistent he will not be sold this summer. Barcelona offer a wildcard option. One for 2025 perhaps.
Vinicius Junior (LW/S) Player was distraught after the abuse and agent has offered him to PSG and Chelsea but the arrival of Mbappe could see further interest. Then you will likely see interest of Manchester United and perhaps PSG making an offer but he is only a second choice Mbappe replacement for them. Chelsea has a preferred option but he may not be attainable.
Rafael Leao (LW) Right footed left winger Leao signed a new contract last summer after serious interest was shown earlier in the year by Bayern Munich and Manchester City. Manchester City's interest remains. The interest of Chelsea went with the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk and even though they are still looking for another similar player they have a far preferred option. I cannot see the player moving to Newcastle who enquired in the summer but PSG have sent scouts and he is seen as an option to replace Mbappe, but not top of the list. Barcelona have him on a lengthy list of wide options for the summer but need to sell - so they can be discounted. Real Madrid went with Mbappe arriving. I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach and they have four right footed players who can play on the left side of attack - and they need a left footed right sided forward. As such it would make little sense and cost a great deal of money. A wildcard would be Manchester United. An offer will be made by Al-Hilal but it may not suit the player who wants to stay in Milan.
Lamine Yamal (RW) Barcelona don't need the wages of the 16 year old off the books but would welcome perhaps a €75M injection of cash but with Alex Collado gone and Raphinha being sold this summer they will look to keep him. PSG has an interest. €200M buy out clause. Will stay where he is.
Victor Osimhen (S) Napoli made it clear to Chelsea who enquired in 2021 that even €100M would not buy the player - but they do maintain an interest and he was first choice but they are looking elsewhere after not getting a warm response from the player - but some at the club are still confident he will sign - and Napoli are interested in Lukaku. Al Hilal may well have offered Napoli the huge fee they were looking for, but that may not suit the player just yet. Real Madrid could look to him as an option to Haaland but Madrid would want to offer players in exchange and ideally they would want to wait another year. He signed a new contract and, at the behest of his agent, included a release clause. Arsenal had a preferred option but are less confident that he will sign and see the price of Osimhen as too high - but they might try to offer Smith-Rowe as part of the deal - but Napoli want to keep things simple. PSG have him on a list of potential Mbappe replacements and they are looking at a LW and a S to minimise the impact of Mbappe departing - but their focus is on a high-end goalscoring LW initially. If Manchester City were to lose Haaland, he would be an option but it won't be this summer. Manchester United interdest has gone. Liverpool are not an option. There will be a return from Michael Emenalo with a very good offer. If he stays another year in Naples it means they may need to sell Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. Chelsea may return with the offer of Lukaku and some cash - but will no longer pay the release clause.
Dusan Vlahovic (S) Only joined in January 2022 but financial issues that Juventus now have will determine that he is sold in the summer – but they will hold out for €70M.His agent has approached Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG. Real Madrid are also keen but, like Chelsea, have preferred targets. Chelsea were open to an exchange of players last summer but right now there is no push as his wage demands are seen as excessive and they will look to other targets first. PSG have him as a possible Mbappe replacement - but not first choice - but don't lose sight of them. As a wildcard, Atletico Madrid or Arsenal may rekindle interest but would likely want to include players in any deal. Juventus have already drawn up a list of potential replacements and are working on those even though he has signed a new contract.
Marcus Thuram (S) Inter has no intention of selling but PSG do have an interest.
Julian Alvarez (F) Manchester City have told Bayern Munich, PSG, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona he is not available although the player wants more game time and could try to force a move.}

Hi ED, when time allows would you be able to provide if there is any interest in Musiala or if a new contract is most likely? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Jamal Musiala (AM/LW) Bayern Munich will have no interest in selling the player back to Chelsea who have enquired but the player is delaying a new contract and needs to reduce his demands. Real Madrid has a declared interest. Manchester City have asked Bayern Munich for talks over the player as a de Bruyne replacement, but they will resist and keep pushing for a new contract. There has been no approach from Liverpool.}

Ed002 who is interested in Samu Omorodion, theo hernandez and is summerville joining brighton? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Samu Omorodion (S) A potential Osimhen replacement for Napoli. Roma has enquired but don't value him at the level Atletico would accept and they have preferred options. Somewhere down the list of options for Milan. Scouted by Chelsea and Newcastle and subject to an offer by West Ham but the player has said he is not interested in the PL at this time. Atletico will resist a sale unless a very significant offer is made.
Theo Hernandez (LWB) Milan want Hernandez to extend but there is interest from Bayern Munich (who may step back with Davies prepared to stay and Chelsea (who identified about 10 options at LB/LWB they are now cutting down). Possible Davies alternative for Real Madrid.
Crysencio Summerville (RW/LW) Leeds have no interest in selling but his agent is looking for a step up and speaking with clubs about him - he has certainly approached Chelsea, Newcastle and Spurs and I suspect others. Both Brighton and Bayer Leverkusen have spoken directly with Leeds. Agent is close to Aston Villa and the City Football Group. A move seems likely even though Leeds will look for a new contract. I am not aware of Liverpool making any approach yet but I understand Slot is a fan of the youngster from advice given to him by Sipke Hulshoff - who knows him well. If he were to replace Salah, there has to be an element of risk but he may become first choice. Crystal Palace have expressed an interesting knowing that at least one of Eze or Olise will depart this summer although they have a preferred option already agreed in principle. A wildcard may be Newcastle. Brighton will push.}

Ed002 who is interested in guirassy

{Ed002's Note - Serhou Guirassy (S) Stuttgart are working hard to remove the release clause (which is to some extent a red herring) and the player is unlikely to be interested in joining any mid-table English side and will wait for the best opportunity with perhaps Spurs, Manchester United or Newcastle making an offer for the summer. That will rule out the interest of West Ham. There is declared interest from Spurs and the other clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea, have sent scouts but both are ideally looking for younger options. Borussia Dortmund have him as a summer target and could move on Sébastien Haller to make space for him - they are the most likely option at this time. With Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting out of contract at Bayern Munich this summer they are considering him but would need to pair him with Harry Kane, effectively taking Thomas Muller out of the equation. Milan may offer a wildcard option but they have mush preferred options. A wildcard may be Atletico Madrid.}

{Ed002's Note - Bradley Locko (LWB) Lille have spoken with Brest about Locko but he may opt to stay and play Champions League football. Has been scouted by Liverpool, Chelsea and Bournemouth who fear losing Kerkez quickly - but any English club looking to buy him would have to sign him as an exception or pay over the odds to secure a Work Permit. One to keep an eye on for the future - a confident player but still pretty raw.

Luca Netz (LWB) Borussia Monchengladbach's versatile defender has been discussed with Chelsea. Other English sides have sent scouts. Will stay where he is for now.}
