Erling Haaland will make his decision over his next club by the end of April, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City in the running for his signature.

Antonio Rudiger's lofty wage demands have seen Barcelona cool their interest in the defender, though they remain keen on signing the Germany international on a free transfer from Chelsea.

Barça's pursuits of Rudiger and Chelsea teammate Andreas Christensen have angered Ronald Araujo, who has been offered fresh terms at Camp Nou that are a fraction of what they are offering to the Blues duo. Manchester United are keen on the Uruguayan.

Tottenham will reignite their interest in Lautaro Martinez this summer, while Arsenal are expected to rival their north London foes for his signature. Inter are not expected to sell for less than £67m (€80m).

Aston Villa's interest in Kalvin Phillips is concrete and they are ready to test Leeds' resolve with a £60m this summer.

Manchester United will step up their pursuit of Switzerland centre-back Manuel Akanji, who is eyeing a move to the Premier League from Borussia Dortmund.

Newcastle are in the market for a new goalkeeper, and will turn their attentions to signing Spain international Robert Sanchez from Brighton. Watford winger Ismaila Sarr is also of interest to the Magpies.

Despite having another year left to run on his contract, Everton are willing to part ways with Allan for free this summer after a disappointing two years on Merseyside.

Elsewhere at Goodison Park, the Toffees have no plans to make Anwar El Ghazi's loan from Aston Villa permanent, and the Villans will look to find a new home for the Dutch winger instead.

Real Madrid do not expect Brahim Diaz to return from his loan spell at Milan, despite impressing for the Rossoneri in his time at San Siro.
