    REDS BLOW

    Liverpool look set to lose starlet Ethan Ennis to either Manchester United or Chelsea this summer.

    The Reds were reportedly keen to keep the 16-year-old prodigy who rose through the ranks at their academy.

    But the midfielder has rejected the Kop’s offer of a scholarship, the Daily Mail reports.

    The Reds are now resigned to the fact they will lose the wonderkid, whose three goals for their Under-18 side in the FA Youth Cup last campaign helped them reach the final, although they lost to Aston Villa.

    Marc Bridge-Wilkinson’s side don’t plan to let Ennis leave on the cheap and will demand a development fee for the youngster, the Mail claim.

    And if the Reds and his new club fail to agree terms, the matter will be resolved by a tribunal who will determine Ennis’ final value.

    The Reds’ bitter rivals United are said to be favourites to clinch the English dynamo’s signature at this stage.

    Chelsea are still in with a shout and Ennis even spent time at their Cobham training ground last week, which he shared on Instagram.

    JOR LEAVING?

    Arsenal are frontrunners to sign Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.

    That's according to bookmakers Coral, who've installed Mikel Arteta's side as 4/1 favourites to clinch the England international's signature.

    However, the Gunners face stiff competition from Atletico Madrid, Leicester and Paris Saint-Germain.

    Henderson, 31, has entered the final two years of his contract at Anfield, which expires in June 2023.

    But there's been very little progress during discussions with the Merseyside club.

    The Athletic claim talks over an extension are still taking place but stress that Liverpool’s owner FSG have 'bigger priorities' to address.

    Those priorities include extensions for Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson.

    SPURRED ON

    Tottenham are close to signing Sevilla winger Bryan Gil for £21.5million plus Erik Lamela, according to reports.

    The North Londoners will reportedly part with the cash plus add-ons, as well as Argentine winger Lamela, in order to land the former Arsenal target.

    Barcelona and Real Madrid were also said to be keen on the winger towards the end of last season.

    But Spurs have stolen a march and will complete the deal soon, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

    Albert Sambi Lokonga has been added to this season’s Fantasy Premier League.

    Lokonga joined the Gunners from Anderlecht on Monday and is expected to get first-team football.

    POGBA SITUATION

    Manchester United have yet to hear from Paris Saint-Germain regarding a possible deal for Paul Pogba.

    Reports in France suggest Pogba is close to an agreement with PSG but the Ligue 1 giants have yet to contact United.

    The star midfielder has entered the last year of his United deal and is not stressed about his next move.

    The France international is set to link up with the Red Devils for pre-season by the end of the month

    TO WAR

    Arsenal and Tottenham are fighting it out for Barcelona goalkeeper Neto.

    DOUBLE DEAL

    Tottenham are targeting two Serie A players that could transform Nuno Espirito Santo's backline.

    That is according to Football London, who claim that Spurs are keeping tabs on Atalanta duo Cristian Romero and Pierluigi Gollini.

    Romero, who is on loan from Juventus, stood out at centre-back last season and impressed in the Copa America where he helped Argentina win the competition.

    Gollini, on the other hand, is seen as someone that could succeed Hugo Lloris in goal one day.

    Both those targets are highly recommended by new sporting director Fabio Paratici

    CAMAVINGA UPDATE

    Rennes president Nicolas Holveck has revealed it’s possible that Eduardo Camavinga leaves the club in the summer.

    Holveck told RMC: “Discussions are still ongoing, everything is open, either for a departure during this transfer window – if an offer satisfies everyone – or to extend [his contract].

    “He won’t leave for cheap, we’ve had a lot of discussions but nothing is complete one way or another”

    LOC & LOAD

    Arsenal have made an offer for Sassuolo star Manuel Locatelli after his impressive performance at Euro 2020.

    That is according to Juventus ace Nicolo Fagioli’s agent Andrea D’Amico, whose client has been linked in a swap deal that would see Locatelli going to Turin.

    However, D’Amico claims Fagioli is not included in Juve’s bid and the Gunners have offered €40million (£34.5m), which is more than what the Italian giants have tabled.

    The agent told Sky Sport Italia: “Juventus would like to sign Locatelli and Arsenal have already offered €40million.

    “But I can ensure you that, as of today, Fagioli has not been included in the deal”

    YOU KANE DO THAT

    Harry Kane would "tarnish" his reputation if he refused to join Tottenham for pre-season training.

    That is according to Former Crystal Palace ace Darren Ambrose, who responded to a recent report suggesting that Kane's team-mates are worried that the England captain won't link up with them in a bid to force a move away.

    Ambrose told talkSPORT: "You should always return, you’re under contract.

    “A gentleman’s agreement means nothing, absolutely nothing – particularly if Daniel Levy is like we know he is, he’s notoriously hard to deal with. He’d have said everything to get Kane to sign the contract initially.

    “He’s Tottenham’s main man and idolised by the supporters. I think he’ll tarnish any reputation and anything he brings to Tottenham by doing this.

    “He’s the England captain as well. I honestly can’t see him not turning up. I don’t know him personally but he seems like such a professional guy.

    “If he refused and Daniel Levy doesn’t get the offer or money that he wants, he could just say: ‘Don’t come back in then’"

    RICE TOUCH

    Chelsea have been told to fork out a whopping £100million if they wish to sign West Ham star Declan Rice.

    That is according to The Athletic, who claim the Hammers are after the megabucks fee from suitors interested in their star with United also keeping tabs.

    It is thought the east Londoners are reluctant to part company with their young captain, who started out in the Blues' academy.

    And they expect to be compensated with an eye-watering fee should a Rice exit come to fruition

    SANCHO REMINDER

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Callum Hudson-Odoi is staying put at Chelsea to fight for his future.

    And that will kill any chance of him moving to Bayern Munich as part of a swap deal with fellow wideman Kingsley Coman, 25.

    The Germans have been admirers of Hudson-Odoi for a long time and have even gone public with it.

    It led to the England player being handed a new £100,00-a-week contract last year that ties him to Chelsea until 2024.

    But despite failing to hold down a regular starting place under new boss Thomas Tuchel last season, Hudson-Odoi, 20, is not interested in leaving his boyhood club.

    Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are playing hardball with Manchester United over England defender Kieran Trippier.

    The former Tottenham right-back is wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to provide defensive cover at Old Trafford next season.

    United are ready to pay around £18million for the ex-Burnley man, 30, but Atletico boss Diego Simeone is in no rush to sell.

    So the Old Trafford outfit look like having to raise their offer if they are to land the Bury-born player.

    The Spanish champs are still waiting to hear what Trippier wants to do.

    And he may need to force the issue if he is to get his dream move back to the Premier League after two years in LaLiga.

    And finally, Tottenham are chasing a double swoop for Atalanta stars Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero, according to reports.

    Former Juventus chief Fabio Paratici has been hired as director of football by chairman Daniel Levy this summer.

    And the Italian is set to use his extensive knowledge of Serie A to aid Spurs’ recruitment.

    According to Football London, Tottenham are in ‘advanced negotiations’ with Atalanta for Romero and Gollini.

    Paratici knows the former well, having signed him for Juventus in 2019, before he joined Atalanta on a two-year loan deal a year later.

    His temporary club have the option to make the move permanent for £13.8million this summer, before selling him on for a handsome profit.
