Edoo2 who is interested in bradley locko and luca netz

{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.}

Hi Eds,

Looks like Bayern are trying to move on de Ligt this summer, is that correct?

If so do you know who might be interested and how much Bayern would be looking for?


{Ed002's Note - Matthijs de Ligt (CB) Player was happier with Tuchel as coach but changes make his future less clear. In the unlikely event that ten Hag is still at Manchester United he may well be interested but he would not be top of the list at all. Bayern have no interest in selling although they are persisting in chasing another CB themselves and the new coach may look to ask him to be moved on to raise funds. Price may put clubs off.}

Hi Ed002,

Do you know the situation with Max Beier this summer?


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

Ed002 everything seems to gone quiet on gyokeres? what's the latest? Who is interested? Thanks alot

{Ed002's Note - Viktor Gyokeres (S) After only joining last summer Sporting have no interest in selling but fear a club could simply pay his €100M buy out clause in full and try to persuade him to move. Sporting fear Chelasea may do that and have avoided the subject during discussions over another player and a separate issue - and Chelsea has a preferred option. He has attracted scouts representing Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal with Arsenal seeing him as an option to Toney. Spurs may offer a wildcard option but have a preferred option to effectively replace Kane which they failed to do last summer. Sporting are looking to a new contract and an increase in his buy-out clause. Injury will keep him out to probably mid to late July or so.}

Ed002 who is interested in pedro neto and sudakov

{Ed002's Note - Pedro Neto (RW/LW) Versatile and looking to move on. Agent has been approached by Manchester United, who will need an Antony replacement, and Arsenal. Agent has also approached Liverpool who will likely need a replacement for Salah - and Neto fits the bill of a lift footed RW although is not first choice. It is unclear why Arsenal are so keen and they clearly have other priorities, but they are. Juventus fear losing young left-footed RW in Matias Soule and may look to Neto. Spurs are another side who may look to Neto but a move seems unlikely - as does a move to Newcastle who are a less attractive option. Prior interest of Manchester City has gone with the emergance of Phil Foden. Maybe wanted in the Middle East which would push his value up. I would expect Wolves to now look for perhaps more than £50M for him but it would likely take the desire of the player to move. Wolves have already agreed to sign his replacement.

Heorhiy/Georgiy Sudakov (AM) Brighton and Barcelona interest has gone with the outrageous financial demands. Arsenal have been regularly scouting the player but it has gone no further. Seen by Chelsea as an option to Arsen Zakharyan who they were repeatedly blocked from signing and eventually moved to Real Sociedad - but they will not pay the asking price, so it would need to be lowered. Spurs offer a wildcard solution. Manchester United have sent scouts but it is hard to see their need for an AM player. Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa Napoli and Bayern Munich have also sent scouts but none have declared an interest. Juventus see him as a relaible replacement for Mohamed Ihattaren as they search for an AM player but again the finances are a significant issue.

Ed002 who is interested in dewsbury hall and is guimaraes going city? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) Manchester United could look to KDH to help refresh their midfield. Brighton are keen. Brentford, Spurs and Fulham offer options. An Everton enquiry will go no where. I suspect one for the summer but FFP issues may be relevant.

I have dealt with Guimaraes on the relevant pages.}

Ed002 who is interested in hincapie

{Ed002's Note - Piero Hincapie (CB) Interest of Nottingham Forest will go nowhere. Scouted and rejected by Spurs as not being ready for the Premier League, but he may well be now and they are struggling to find a target to join them. Open to a move to Liverpool as they look for cover but his expectation is to be a starter abut that would take the departure of van Dijk. And Liverpool have preferred options. Milan and Roma have both sent scouts.}

Hi Ed, if you'd be so kind, just wondering who is interested in Desire Doue of Rennes? Seen a few links pop up recently and can't find anything when I search on here. Many thanks

{Ed002's Note - Desire Doue (LW/RW/AM) The player is young and talented but rather moody and has decided to leave with him apparently desparate to move to PSG. Borussia Dortmund see him as a replacement for Jadon Sancho, and Manchester IUnited 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 could potentially look again. Bayer Leverkusen will look to him as a potential Florian Wirtz replacement if needs be. A wildcard would be PSG or perhaps Bayern Munich. Rennes will seek €75M for him which will end most interest.}

Ed002 who is interested in upamecano and diomande

{Ed002's Note - Dayot Upamecano (CB) I expect he will be available - there has been interest from Manchester United but he is not first choice.

Ousmane Diomande (CB) Joined in January 2023 and covered by the Cotonou Agreement. Sporting see him as a long-term partner for Inacio and do not wish to sell - rejecting an offer from Arsenal last summer. Arsenal could look again but have other targets as well. Manchester City, Liverpool (via a third party) and Chelsea have sent scouts to watch him and Chelsea have declared an interest in him. Manchester United may offer a wildcard solution but are very keen on a preferred option. Sporting will insist that his Buy Out Clause is paid in full which with other discussions gives a huge advantage to Chelsea if they decide to press ahead.}

Ed002 who is interested in leny yoro

{Ed002's Note - Leny Yoro (CB) Lille kiddie who already has PSG, Chelsea and Real Madrid declaring an interest. Manchester City and Manchester United have sent scouts and Manchester City may be keen to do something. May have been noticed by Liverpool when scouting another player against Nantes, but no declared interest at this time - regardless of reports saying they will pay €90M plus for him. And Liverpool have preferred CB targets. 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. 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 specific players already mentioned.

Hi Ed002, hope you are well.

Is there any interest in Leroy Sane at the moment? Or are Bayern looking to sell etc?

Thank you.

{Ed002's Note - Leroy Sane (W) Having a terrible season but Bayern Munich are open to a new contract whilst the player will want confirmation on who the new Head Coach will be. Middle East might be a viable solution with Al Nassr. Liverpool were, and might still be, keen to take him as a Salah replacement but I expect that to change to other targets.}

Hi Ed002, how are you? Was wondering if you knew of De Zerbi's next move? Links to a few clubs but Milan or certainly serie a seems to be the most mentioned, would this be the case? Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Good thanks. Roberto de Zerbi (C) Brighton wanted to keep him but another who will certainly be discussed by Bayern Munich, Milan and Manchester United with Jim Ratcliffe having an interest in him. Could take a year out. Deco has de Zerbi as his preferred option for Barcelona which he has shared with Yuste and Laporte but it will not be Deco's decision and they can perhaps be excluded for now. Not top of Chelsea's list, but on the list. Bayern Munich are now looking for a stop gap solution so can also be discounted. There is strong support for de Zerbi in Milan and that would likely suit de Zerbi. An interesting option might be Manchester City when the job becomes available. Napoli has a short list for their new coach and have excluded de Zerbi.}

Ed002, are Bayern looking for a stop gap manager because they are hoping one of Klopp or Guardiola are available in 2025?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but there is interested in both from elsewhere.}

Would Alonso be on that list as well or is he nailed on for Real?
Also, Klopp or Pep, who do you think is more likely to end up at Bayern?

{Ed002's Note - Possibly but so are others. It is a constantly changing situation with Liverpool moving early and eventually getting Slot, Juventus will announce their new coach soon and Milan is working on another. Napoli are now looking to de Zerbia as well.}

Hi Ed002,

Do you know what the interest is like in Xavi Simons this summer?


{Ed002's Note - 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. Manchester City see him as another potential de Bruyne replacment.}
