Today's Gossip: Perisic Nears OT Switch; Wenger; Reds Battle For Neves

Liverpool and Chelsea have enquired about a £30m-rated Porto star, while Arsenal are chasing four French stars, including three Monaco talents, according to Wednesday’s newspapers.

Reds Battle Chelsea For Neves
FC Porto prospect Ruben Neves is attracting interest from Chelsea and Liverpool once again.
The duo have been linked with the young Star before, but the Daily Star, quoting Portuguese newspaper A Bola, says the player is keen to make the move to the Premier League this summer.

And it’s claimed both Jurgen Klopp and Antonio Conte’s sides have made contact with Porto to enquire about the 20-year-old’s availability.

Porto are demanding a fee of around £30million for the highly-rated youngster, however, so any move will not come cheap.

Wenger Make Ambitious Move To Sign Monaco Trio
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been linked with raids for Monaco trio Kylian Mbappe, Djibril Sidibe and Thomas Lemar, according to reports on Wednesday.
The Daily Telegraph claims Wenger is intent on pushing ahead with an overhaul of his attacking options in preparation for major Arsenal exits with deals for Mbappe and Lemar being worked on in addition to their interest in Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette.

Of the quartet mentioned, Arsenal are thought to have a decent chance of landing winger Lemar and right-back Sidibe, though deals for Mbappe and Lacazette are more complicated.

Man United confident in Perisic pursuit
A move for Ivan Perisic to Manchester United looks to be on, and the Independent reports that the Inter Milan winger is "hugely keen and excited" to work with Jose Mourinho.
The Croatia star would cost about £50 million, with the player reportedly already agreeing personal terms with the Red Devils.

The Nerazzurri have sat back and watched Derby della Madonnina rivals AC Milan splash the cash while their situation appears more restricted. 

United have been given confidence they can prise away the former Wolfsburg star due to Inter's need to sell with £26m required before the end of June in order to comply with UEFA's Financial Fair Play.

And United are prepared to pay for Perisic, who is "desperate" for the move after scoring 11 goals and assisting 11 more last season.

Pickford to spark Toffees revolution
Jordan Pickford's impending £30m move to Everton will trigger a £150m spending spree to launch the Toffees' assault on a top-four finish next season.
The Sunderland goalkeeper could be followed by the arrivals of Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Michael Keane, says the Mirror.

The Ajax captain will be the next player to rock up at Goodison Park in a £25m move before a relative bargain in Sandro follows due to his Malaga contract containing just a £6m release clause.

Ronald Koeman will then account for Ross Barkley's potential exit by looking to snap up Swansea's Icelandic star, even if the asking price reaches £30m.

A centre-back, ideally Burnley and England's Keane, plus another striker will then round off their summer transformation.

Juve push for Douglas Costa
Juventus are serious about Douglas Costa and have made their intentions clear that they will bid up to €45m for the Bayern Munich winger, reports Sky Sport Italia, which is close to the figure required to strike a deal.
The Brazil star has failed to shine under Carlo Ancelotti in the same way he did with Pep Guardiola, scoring just seven times in all competitions and assisting nine more.

The Bundesliga champions want €50m for the 26-year-old, who has set his heart on a move to Turin. The Old Lady have agreed to terms of €6m per season, meaning Inter, who had also been interested, will have to look elsewhere for a wide player.

Donnarumma-Raiola row rumbles on
Gianluigi Donnarumma is perhaps the world's best young goalkeeper and has only one year remaining on his AC Milan deal.

These are exciting times for the Rossoneri after embarking on a spending spree following their takeover, but Sky Sport Italia has reported a row between the player's agent, Mino Raiola, and the club, who are thought to be growing restless at the lack of response to their offer.

Milan are believed to have proposed a €4m-per-season contract to the 18-year-old, but Raiola failed to respond before Tuesday's deadline.

In turn, director Massimiliano Mirabelli contacted the Italy international directly whilst he was at Azzurri training in Rome, which is thought to have enraged Raiola.

A meeting on Thursday will now reportedly decide the player's future, with Paris Saint-Germain ready to pounce if an agreement is not struck.
