Chelsea to orchestrate Bale's Premier League return
Chelsea are ready to step up their interest in Gareth Bale after Real Madrid became open to selling the Welsh star to part-fund a move for Kylian Mbappe, reports the Express.
Antonio Conte is a known admirer of Bale, and despite the 28-year-old's happiness in the Spanish capital, dropping out of the starting lineup if the Monaco sensation arrives could alter his stance.
Florentino Perez would be willing to sell for £90 million, according to the report, which would represent a marginal profit four years after breaking the world transfer record by paying Spurs &Ypound;85m.
Having scored 67 times in 150 appearances while winning three Champions Leagues, Bale's time in Spain has been a huge success, but a starring role back in the Premier League continues to be dangled in front of him.
Everton ready Welbeck bid
After splashing out more than £100m this summer, Everton have raised optimism of challenging the top six this season, but their ambition stretches further yet with the Mirrorclaiming the Toffees are ready to bid £30m for Danny Welbeck.
Ronald Koeman had wanted Gunners forward Olivier Giroud, but with the France international seemingly uninterested in moving to Merseyside, Welbeck could become the focus.
Arsene Wenger is prepared to let one of his forwards leave, having insisted that Alexis Sanchez will stay after making Alexandre Lacazette their Club record signing, and almost doubling the £16m invested in the former Manchester United star three years on would represent shrewd business.
Barca plot shock move for Alli
Fresh from a £200m injection after having Neymar taken from them by Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona have reportedly set their sights on Tottenham star Dele Alli, according to the Express.
While a left winger to replace Neymar is crucial, manager Ernesto Valverde is determined to sign a new centre midfielder, with last summer's big-money signing Andre Gomes proving incapable of making the step up from Valencia to the Camp Nou.
The report suggests the Blaugrana want to take advantage of the England international's modest salary, with several teammates above him in the club's wage structure, though Spurs are determined to not sell and after receiving £50m from selling Kyle Walker to Manchester City, the Catalan giants face a tough task convincing them otherwise.
Liverpool to receive British record offer for Coutinho
Barcelona will test Liverpool's resolve to keep Philippe Coutinho by offering them a British record fee of £120m, according to the Star.
Absent from the Reds' preseason friendly win against Athletic Bilbao in Dublin, officially through injury, the Brazilian is a key target for Valverde's side after losing Neymar this week.
Not done there, Barca will happily pay Borussia Dortmund £70m to take Ousmane Dembele off their hands, which would all but use up the fee received from PSG for Neymar.
Eden Hazard is another target and could be approached if Barca fail to land Coutinho, as the Catalan side begin to desperately search for Neymar's replacement with just weeks left of the transfer window.
