Liverpool are favorites to sign a target for Chelsea and Real Madrid, while Tottenham are linked with a Serie A-based winger…
LIVERPOOL RACE FOR TCHOUAMENI
Liverpool slowed the pace in the title race this weekendbut the Reds seem to have taken the lead over their rivals against Aurélien Tchouameni…
The French midfielder should be on the move this summer, with Chelsea, Real Madrid and Liverpool are said to have all competed for the job at the head of the line.
Telefoot believes the Reds are now favorites to land the 22-year-old from Monaco, with Brand reporting a similar line. Apparently, Real remain hugely interested in Tchouameni but they want to wait until 2023 to sign the midfielder as they are content with their current midfield options.
Liverpool, however, are keen to secure a deal in time for next season and the Champions League finalists are making good progress in their negotiations with Monaco.
Conclusion 16: Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur
BAYERN MOVE FIRST FOR LIVERPOOL, TARGET MAN UTD
Liverpool have also been linked with Konrad Laimer, with the RB Leipzig midfielder approaching the final year of his contract.
Reports over the weekend suggested Manchester United were also sniffing around the 24-year-old, but Bundesliga rivals Leipzig are also attracting strong interest.
fabrice romano says Bayern Munich are preparing their opening bid for Laimer who is worth around £15m. Julian Nagelsmann knows all about the Austria international for having worked together at Leipzig where Laimer has been playing since 2017.
It might be rather easier to get Laimer away from Leipzig than Christopher Nkunku. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of clubs willing to give it a try.
Football.London claims that Arsenal, Chelsea and United are all set to play for Nkunku this summer. But Leipzig have no intention of receiving offers for the 24-year-old…
RB Leipzig manager Oliver Mintzlaff on Christopher Nkunku’s future: “We have clearly discussed it internally: we won’t let Nkunku leave this summer, we told him and his agent”. 🔴 #RBLeipzig
RB Leipzig will also try to extend his contract but talks are still in their early stages.

ATLETICO OFFERS A GETAWAY TO WAN-BISSAKA OLD TRAFFORD
Like many Man Utd players, Aaron Wan-Bissaka appears to have no future at Old Trafford. The right-back has endured a miserable season with the Red Devils, who are ready to let the £50million full-back leave on loan with a view to a permanent deal.
Wan-Bissaka has been linked with a return to Crystal Palace but the 24-year-old could be tempted abroad.
Last week it was reported that Jose Mourinho is ready to take the defender to Romawhile Todofichajes claim that Atletico Madrid are also ready to take a punt.
SPURS MAKE MAEHLE A TOP TARGET
Tottenham are also looking for a right-handed defender and their eyes are on Atalanta…
the Daily mail says Joakim Maehle is one of Spurs’ top targets this summer while Antonio Conte looks to bolster his wing-back options.
Maehle was outstanding for Denmark at the Euros last summer and the 24-year-old won’t come cheap as he’s contracted to Atalanta until 2025.
