PSG's Mbappe replacements

PSG want to make Victor Osimhen the successor to Kylian Mbappe.

He is one of at least three major signings PSG will make with the money they will save due to Mbappe's departure.

They also want a new midfielder and have identified Barcelona's Gavi as a target.

Xavi Simons is expected to be given a new contract to replace Mbappe on the wing - and this is good news for Liverpool.

Could Arsenal sign Mbappe? Mikel Arteta certainly thinks so.

Man Utd eye Tel

Man Utd have initiated contact with Bayern wonderkid Mathys Tel.

The Frenchman could be part of Jim Ratcliffe's summer revolution, as could be the man who made Cole Palmer and Phil Foden the players they are today.

Dan Ashworth is in line to become the club's new sporting director, but what can Man Utd fans expect from Newcastle's transfer guru?

Roy Keane, for his part, isn't totally convinced by the potential appointment.

Arsenal's Hato blow

Arsenal have received some news regarding summer target Jorrel Hato: he has signed a new long-term Ajax contract.

Liverpool have entered the race for Benjamin Sesko, but would he really be a good signing for them?

Man Utd could offer Barcelona as many as four players in exchange for Frenkie de Jong.

Newcastle are set for a significant windfall from Ivan Toney's summer move.

Jamal Musiala is one of Europe's most in-demand players, but on current form, he is at risk of suffering from the dreaded Bundesliga tax.

Liverpool are believed to be in pole position to sign a player who has just been fitted with a €150m release clause.

Lastly, there is a rift at Chelsea regarding the future of one of Mauricio Pochettino's key players.
