TRANSFER TALK

Aouar chance for Liverpool?

Lyon star Houssem Aouar could be up for grabs during the summer transfer window and Liverpool are ready to move, according to L’Equipe.

The French club are set to miss out on European football courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic, and as a direct result of that, they’ll also have to sell a few of their big names and 21-year-old Aouar could fall in that category.

Aouar has been transfer listed, which could open the door for Premier League leaders Liverpool to make a move. The Reds are known to be interested in pursuing Aouar, and while the future of the transfer market is uncertain, that isn’t going to throw Jurgen Klopp off the scent.

The Red Devils are looking at the former Paris Saint-Germain star as someone who could take part in an exchange deal involving Paul Pogba, with the Frenchman being on the verge of departing Old Trafford this summer.

The Toffees, on the other hand, could use the added influence of new boss Carlo Ancelotti to try and lure him to Goodison Park, with Rabiot’s representatives being in talks with both.

Upamecano to stay at RB Leipzig?

RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is set to stay at the club beyond the summer, Evening Standard reports.

During a recent interview with Sport 1, Upamecano’s agent revealed that a big move in the next few months isn’t likely. It initially seemed as if Manchester United and Arsenal would make respective bids, but that all changed after the coronavirus pandemic brought global football to a halt.

Upamecano has attracted a great deal of interest from across European football so far this season, but it doesn’t appear as if that’ll translate into a move away.

Tap-ins

Chelsea could be interested in making an offer for West Ham United star Declan Rice, The Mirror reports. However, while the England international is clearly an intriguing midfielder to keep an eye on, the potential interest from the Blues will stem from whether or not Real Madrid are successful in trying to sign N’Golo Kante, who has been heavily linked with a move this summer.

 Napoli will demand at least €50 million if they are to sell Hirving Lozano to Everton, Gazzetta dello Sport reports. The Italian side signed Lozano from PSV Eindhoven last year, but after struggling to make an impact in Serie A, the Toffees are sniffing around as they attempt to improve their chances of European qualification in the Premier League.
