Liverpool have been tipped to move for Bayern Munich starlet Jamal Musiala next summer if they fail with an approach for primary target Jude Bellingham at Borussia Dortmund (Mirror).

The Reds will face competition for Jude Bellingham, who is not only wanted by Real Madrid but also now by Premier League rivals Manchester City (Sport1).

Pep Guardiola has denied that Real Madrid, or indeed any club, have a preferential release clause to sign Manchester City's new goalscoring superstar Erling Haaland (Mirror).

On top of moving early for Christopher Nkunku by already conducting a medical for the Frenchman, Chelsea are described as 'ahead of everyone' for AC Milan winger Rafael Leao (Star).

Arsenal are clamed to be monitoring Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford, who is in the last season of his current contract - albeit with the option of an extra year (Football Insider).

The Gunners have also been informed they will have to pay a sizeable sum if they want to sign Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhalo Mudryk, who has two goals and two assists in the Champions League so far this season (Mirror).

Contract talks have stalled between Chelsea and N'Golo Kante, who is at risk of becoming a free agent in the summer. As things stand, he would be able to openly speak with long-term admirers Paris Saint-Germain in January (Mail).

Arsenal are hoping to secure Bukayo Saka, William Saliba and Gabriel Martinelli to new long-term contracts (Independent).

Tottenham are showing interest in Ajax talent Mohammed Kudus but are expected to face considerable competition for the young Ghanaian's signature (Express).

Barcelona are reported to have agreed a transfer fee with Atletico Madrid for Antoine Griezmann that comes in at just €20m. Atletico extended their loan deal in summer but were reluctant to trigger a €40m clause, which led to a bizarre situation of him playing only 30 minutes per game (Marca).

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah is frustrated by his lack of game time this season, having rejected the opportunity to leave the club during the summer transfer window by signing a new contract (Mail).
