Friday, April 17

  • Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd target Joe Rodon could cost around £20m
  • PSG are planning to hold contract discussions with full-back Layvin Kurzawa
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward are huge admirers of Harry Kane
  • Dortmund are confident of signing Birmingham teenager Jude Bellingham

Joe Rodon valuation

Swansea star Joe Rodon could cost around £20million, according to Wales Online.

The centre-back, who has been likened to Manchester City’s John Stones, has attracted interest from several Premier League heavyweights.

Manchester United, City, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been linked with the 22-year-old Wales international after another impressive Championship campaign.

However, Wales Online suggest Ryan Giggs could be a ‘driving force’ in Rodon’s next destination having played a large role in Daniel James’ move to Old Trafford last year.

Layvin Kurzawa twist

Paris Saint-Germain are planning to hold last-gasp contract discussions with Layvin Kurzawa.

That’s according to Spanish newspaper Sport, who claim the club’s sporting director Leonardo plans to hold talks with Kurzawa’s representatives over an extension at the Parc des Princes.

The news will come as a bitter blow for Premier League Arsenal.

Yesterday, website Todofichajes reported that free agent Kurzawa had agreed a five-year deal with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

It was claimed that the Gunners had won the battle for his signature ahead of their rivals and had planned to announce his arrival at the end of the current campaign.

Harry Kane latest

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward are both huge admirers of Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

That’s according to the Manchester Evening News, who claim both the Old Trafford chiefs agree that the £200million-rated Spurs talisman is of interest.

Kane, who has scored 181 goals in 278 Tottenham appearances, alerted potential suitors to his availability when saying at the end of March he wouldn’t just stay ‘for the sake of it’.

Solskjaer is said to be a ‘confirmed admirer’, while Woodward is a ‘fan’ of the player – but, as things stand, United are unlikely to pay chairman Daniel Levy’s £200m valuation.

Jude Bellingham latest

Borussia Dortmund are confident of beating Manchester United to the signing of Birmingham teenager Jude Bellingham.

That, according to the Daily Mail, is despite the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Red Devils had hoped to lure the talented midfielder to Old Trafford having given him a personal tour of the club’s training facilities.

However, It’s believed that Jadon Sancho’s progress and rise to stardom with the Bundesliga outfit has had a ‘particular impact’ on Bellingham, who could choose to follow in his footsteps.

£100m-rated Sancho himself remains Ed Woodward’s top priority signing in the upcoming transfer window.
