What the papers say
Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard is being courted by both Arsenal and Leicester as well as some of Europe’s largest clubs, according to the Telegraph. The 23-year-old will have one year left on his contract in Glasgow at the end of Celtic’s current campaign and is favoured to go to the Foxes, whose boss Brendan Rodgers he played under at Parkhead.
Manchester United have reportedly refused to rule out another attempt to sign Jadon Sancho this summer. The Red Devils first tried to bring the Manchester City junior to Old Trafford in 2017 before again failing to secure him last year. The Manchester Evening News reports these experiences – and the 21-year-old’s form for Borussia Dortmund – have not affected United’s interest in the England winger.
Fikayo Tomori‘s stay in Italy may continue after the season ends. The Sun cites Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport as reporting AC Milan “will do everything to redeem” the England international so he can stay at San Siro. Chelsea stand to make £24 million (€27.8 million) if they allow the 23-year-old defender’s loan to become permanent.
The Daily Mail – which references Sky Germany – says Tottenham are close to making a move for Jerome Boateng. The defender (32) will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season after a decade of service.
