Guardian Rumour Mill

Jacob Steinberg

Juventus are planning to go shopping in London for a Max Allegri replacement. The Italian champions intend to stop off at Not White Hart Lane first and ask Tottenham if they can have Mauricio Pochettino. Daniel Levy, Tottenham’s gnarly negotiator of a chairman, will direct them towards a storage cupboard where he keeps Jacques Santini, Juande Ramos and Tactics Tim. Juve can choose from Jacques Santini, Juande Ramos and Tactics Tim. In fact they can have them all if they’re feeling adventurous. But they’re unlikely to be allowed to return to Turin with Pochettino as their new manager.

Not to worry, though, because Juventus have alternative targets. Off they head to Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea’s suits appear to have to convince their Italian counterparts that all those “Fuck Sarriball” chants were actually an ironic tribute to Maurizio Sarri. Juve are said to be prepared to stump up £5m in compensation for Sarri, who has impressed them with plans to play Cristiano Ronaldo as a holding midfielder, but they could face competition for him from Roma.

Manchester United don’t have to worry about finding a new manager. Ole’s at the wheel. He gets it, you see. Not enough to stop David de Gea from refusing to sign a new deal, though. It seems the Spaniard, whose current contract runs out next year, has had enough of life at Old Trafford after seeing pictures of Phil Jones’s new haircut. Paris Saint-Germain are lining up a £60m bid. In better news, however, United are closing in on Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic for £48m, Swansea City’s Daniel James for £15m and Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka for £50m. Meanwhile Juan Mata could be off to Newcastle, who hope to keep Sean Longstaff away from United.

Arsenal are eyeing Dynamo Dresden’s Markus Schubert as a replacement for Petr Cech, who is heading back to Chelsea in a new sporting director role. Schubert, a Germany Under-21 international, is available on a free transfer. Arsenal are also looking at River Plate’s Exequiel Palacios as a replacement for Aaron Ramsey.

Tottenham have decided to look elsewhere after failing to convince Palace to give them Wilfried Zaha in exchange for a book about luxury cheese rooms. The north Londoners are searching in Spain for attacking reinforcements instead and like the look of Celta Vigo’s Maxi Gómez, who has a £43m release clause in his contract.

West Ham tried to sign the Uruguayan forward in January, but they have other forward targets now. Manuel Pellegrini is planning to rival Newcastle for Club Brugge’s Wesley Moraes, who did 17 goals in Belgium last season, and he also fancies a reunion with West Brom’s Salomón Rondón, who played for the Chilean at Málaga.

Frank Lampard, manager of Frank Lampard’s Derby County, will try to sign Chelsea’s Gary Cahill if the Rams beat Aston Villa in next Monday’s Championship play-off final.

West Ham reignite their interest in experienced midfielder, wants England move

Milliyet claim Besiktas Gary Medel wants to continue his career in England, with West Ham United set to reignite their interest in the Chilean midfielder.

Medel was strongly linked with a move to West Ham during the last winter transfer window but the 31 year old ended up staying at Besiktas.

It’s now claimed Medel will look to terminate his contract with the Istanbul club because of unpaid wages and West Ham could be his next destination.

However, the Besiktas’ board don’t want to lose Medel on a free transfer and Milliyet say they will hold talks about the player’s future at the end of the season. The Turkish Super Lig has just one game remaining.

During the last transfer window, Medel was also linked with a move to Burnley but a switch to the Premier League side never materialised.

The former Cardiff City player is under contract at the Vodafone Arena until June 2020.


Liverpool keen on West Ham United's Felipe Anderson

John Verrall

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be weighing up a move for West Ham United's Felipe Anderson.

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are plotting a move for West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson.

Liverpool are keen to add an attacker to their squad this summer, and West Ham’s Anderson has reportedly emerged on their radar.

Anderson has enjoyed a fine first season in England, where he has netted 10 goals for West Ham.

Jurgen Klopp is now said to be an admirer of the Hammers’ winger, and he would like to bring him to Anfield.

Liverpool’s interest is still in the very early stages, but West Ham will be wary of bids coming in.

Manuel Pellegrini has already suggested that he thinks Anderson could be a key player for West Ham next term, as he feels that the Brazilian has plenty of improvement left in him.

If Liverpool were to buy Anderson he would cost them a sizeable fee, as West Ham are said to be looking at bringing in £75 million for him before they even consider selling, according to the Daily Star.


Wolves and West Ham in battle to sign Cardiff loanee star Victor Camarasa as Real Betis ponder selling midfielder

Wolves and West Ham are both interested in signing midfielder Victor Camarasa
The Spaniard impressed during loan spell at Cardiff from Real Betis last season
He finished as Cardiff's joint-top scorer as they were relegated from top-flight
La Liga side Betis are considering loaning Camarasa out again or selling him

By Adrian Kajumba

Wolves and West Ham are keen on bringing Victor Camarasa back to the Premier League.

Camarasa was one of the bright sparks during a season that ended in relegation for Cardiff.

He spent the season on loan with Neil Warnock's side from Real Betis and ended as their joint-top scorer for the campaign from midfield.

Camarasa, 24, has returned to Betis who will decide whether they are willing to loan the stylish midfielder out again or agree a permanent deal.

He will not be short of offers in the Premier League after putting himself in the shop window during his time in Wales.

As well as Wolves and West Ham Camarasa has also caught the eye of Brighton and Everton.
