    Gueye roped in by Spurs

    Tottenham reportedly want ex-Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye.

    Jeunes Footeaux claims the tenacious star has emerged as a target for Antonio Conte as he approaches the final year of his PSG contract.

    Gueye, 32, joined the French champions from Everton for £30million in 2019.

    He has since won two titles and two French Cups after playing 110 games.

    But PSG are ready to cut Gueye loose as they look for fresh faces this summer.

    Rice tipped to reject 8-year Hammers' deal

    United and Chelsea target Declan Rice will turn down West Ham's offer of an eight-year deal believing it would be crazy to commit the majority of his career to the club, reports SunSport’s Duncan Wright.

    The East Londoners have tabled a £200,000-a-week offer for Rice taking him through until 2030.

    The 23-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in European football and admits he may have to quit the London Stadium to play the top-level football he craves.

    And though The Hammers have now come up with four improved offers in an attempt to tie him down the midfielder is standing firm by rejecting all of them.

    Central to his thinking is not wanting to box himself into a similar position to Harry Kane, who saw his dream move to Manchester City blocked because Tottenham had him locked into a long-term deal.

    The East Londoners have tabled a £200,000-a-week offer for Rice taking him through until 2030.

    But SunSport understands the £10million-a-year package is being viewed by the Chelsea and Manchester United target’s side as West Ham co-owner David Sullivan playing to the crowd.

    Wanda wonga is Maur than Icardi's

    Wanda Icardi ICARDI might be earning more than her football superstar husband Mauro Icardi, according to reports in Spain, writes JAMES COLOSANTI.

    The Argentine influencer and businesswoman is raking in a small fortune, according to figures published in Mundo Deportivo.

    The report says the 35-year-old's income has been boosted after she recently signed a 'millionaire agreement' with her ex-husband Maxi Lopez following their divorce.

    It adds the former Barcelona forward, 38, will have to continue to pay alimony until the youngest of their three children turns 21-years-old in 12 years' time.

    And it reveals that Wanda will get the house they shared in Santa Barbara, California, as part of the settlement.

    The report explains Wanda's successful and growing cosmetics brand along with advertising opportunities, social media and television work have also boosted her earning potential.

    And, it adds, Wanda's income includes commission earned as a football agent for Paris Saint-Germain star Mauro, 29.

    The article quotes comments made by Argentine lawyer Mauricio D'Alessandro on the Argentine TV program, Intrusos.

    He believes Wanda's various income streams mean she is likely to be earning about €262,500 per month (£225,000).

    Rodruiguez set to snub Becks' Miami

    David Beckham looks set to lose out on a major transfer for Inter Miami after James Rodriguez confirmed his desire to return to Europe this summer, writes TONY ROBERTSON.

    Rodriguez, who is formerly of Everton and Real Madrid, is currently plying his trade out in Qatar with Al-Rayyan.

    Former Manchester United and Real Madrid star Beckham wanted to bring Rodriguez to his Major League Soccer franchise Inter Miami, but now such a move looks unlikely after Rodriguez revealed his summer plans.

    As quoted by Pipe Sierra via Fabrizio Romano, the Colombian said: "The transfer market will open soon, we'll see.

    "Returning to the elite football is a serious possibility, let's see who wants my left foot again."

    Rodriguez joined Al-Rayyan in the Autumn of last year after being frozen out of Everton by then manager Rafael Benitez.

    The 30-year-old has scored four goals and registered seven assists in just 12 league matches in Qatar this season.

    However, Al-Rayyan sit in just eighth place in the Qatar Stars League having lost 10 games and winning just half of the other 12 they have played.

    The 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner had been consistently linked to Inter Miami, who already have Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain among their ranks.

    Basrcelona in for Chelsea duo

    Chelsea are reportedly open to a swap deal which would see Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso transfer to Barcelona, writes EMILIA HAWKINS.

    In exchange, Sergino Dest and Neto could move to Stamford Bridge.

    The Catalan giants have already agreed a five-year deal with Blues centre back Andreas Christensen.

    But they are now set to raid Chelsea for two more defenders.

    The Blues are currently limited in terms of player negotiations due to the sanctions placed on the club by the UK Government.

    However, they will be allowed to complete deals when the takeover bid is officially confirmed and accepted.

    According to Spanish outlet Sport.es, the West London club want to sign Dest and Neto in exchange for Azpilicueta and Alonso.

    The two Blues are both said to be keen on a move to Camp Nou.

    The club have reportedly agreed a deal with Azpilicueta which would see him earn around £11million per-season.

    Meanwhile, Xavi also wants bring in Alonso.

    Nine players are expected to leave Barcelona this summer, including Dest and Neto. Both are currently surplus to requirements, so the club will likely be open to a move. Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay are also on the list of potential departures.

    Conte might quit Spurs unless they splash out

    Ex-Tottenham and Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet reckons Spurs boss Antonio Conte might quit unless he's allowed to spend big this summer.

    Conte's fifth-placed team will leapfrog Arsenal if they win tomorrow night's Prem derby at home.

    But Uruguay legend Poyet told Boyle Sports: “I think if he isn’t promised transfers in the summer window, he could leave.

    “Everyone was talking about Conte and PSG last summer and it seemed they weren’t ready for each-other, so why now?

    “The situation with PSG and Conte is strange for many reasons as they do not play like Unai Emery or Mauricio Pochettino.

    "But maybe he’s what they need to get their special trophy that they’re looking for.

    “The two teams that need it the most are PSG and Man City and they cannot get it.”

    New director promises Boehly bonanza on transfers

    Todd Boehly is set to splash the cash this summer at Chelsea once his £4.25billion takeover of the club is completed, writes JAKE LAMBOURNE.

    That is the promise of incoming director Daniel Finkelstein, who will be part of the Blues‘ board once the takeover goes through.

    American billionaire Boehly and his consortium have agreed a £4.25bn deal to buy the club from Russian owner Roman Abramovich.

    The 46-year-old’s team consists of billionaires Mark Walter, Hansjorg Wyss and investment firm Clearlake Capital.

    In a statement, Chelsea said the deal is “expected to complete in late May subject to all necessary regulatory approvals”.

    Chelsea’s proposed £4.25bn takeover is set to be more than DOUBLE the record for the most expensive in sporting history.

    Boehly was in attendance at Stamford Bridge on Saturday to watch the club draw 2-2 against Wolves as Conor Coady scored a dramatic 97th minute equaliser.

    And it appears that he is aware that the West London outfit need strengthening, with the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger all set to depart as free agents.

    Callum and Nketiah tipped for Ghana switch

    Callum Hudson-Odoi and Eddie Nketiah are set to switch from England to Ghana before the winter’s 2022 World Cup.

    That is according to Football London, who claim that the two players have been convinced to link up with the African nation, for which they are eligible to play.

    Arsenal ace Nketiah, 22, leads the Three Lions’ Under-21 all-time scoring list with 16 goals in 17 appearances but has never competed for the senior team.

    Chelsea star Hudson-Odoi, 21, on the other hand, has registered three senior caps. They all came in 2019 when Gareth Southgate dealt with an injury crisis.

    A Fifa rule change in 2020 allows players with no more than three international appearances to change their allegiance if those caps came before their 21st birthday.

    Therefore, both players can complete the move, which would boost their hopes of playing in the winter’s World Cup in Qatar

    Jes the ticket

    Manchester United ace Jesse Lingard, whose contract runs out in June, has priced himself out of a transfer to Newcastle.

    The Magpies pushed hard to sign Lingard on loan in January, only to be scared off by United’s £16million loan fee.

    The Toon have subsequently been touted as a logical potential free agent destination for the midfielder.

    According to the Telegraph, however, the England international has scared them off with his financial demands.

    They claim that the 29-year-old wants in excess of £150,000-a-week at his next team

    Transfer Dor closing

    Borussia Dortmund have claimed they can “win the fight for Jude Bellingham” despite interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

    Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke believes they can keep Bellingham after losing Erling Haaland to Manchester City despite rumours linking him to United and the Reds.

    Watzke told CNN: “That’s the only way for us because when a player performs very well, we have to fight against the big, big, big clubs with the oligarchs and the Arabian states at their back. And this fight we cannot win.

    “But we can win a fight over an 18-year-old player, like Jude Bellingham, because this player loves to play at Borussia Dortmund because we have always 80,000 spectators, it’s a very good atmosphere and the club knows how to manage young players.

    “That’s our way and, OK, we have a good department who are scouting young players every day, but it’s also very important if you have the player here, you must develop him and I think that works… most of the time, it works”

    Fabian Ruiz price named

    Arsenal will have to pay £34million for Napoli star Fabian Ruiz in the summer transfer window.

    According to Napoli Piu, the Gunners are the "most interested" in signing Ruiz, who has also attracted attention from elsewhere.

    The Partenopei have set an initial price tag of £34m for the midfielder due to his contract situation.

    The Spain international has one year remaining on his current contract, meaning his value will likely decrease if he is not sold in the next window – and in 12 months he will be available for free.

    The report also suggests that the Serie A outfit could even be persuaded to drop the price by around £3.4m to facilitate a move

    More from Jesus agent

    Arsenal are targeting Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus ahead of the summer transfer window.

    But the Gunners are facing competition from six other teams, who are also interested in Jesus.

    That is according to the centre-forward's agent Marcelo Pettinati, who also admitted his client likes the project at the Emirates.

    Pettinati added: “There are six more clubs interested in Gabriel – he’s focused on final games with Man City, we’ll see”

    Gabriel Jesus confirmation

    Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus’ agent has confirmed transfer talks with Arsenal, admitting his client likes the club's project.

    That is a significant transfer boost for the Gunners’ search for a striker as they face the prospect of having no one to lead the line in June.

    Jesus’ agent Marcelo Pettinati has admitted that the striker likes the project that Arteta is putting together.

    Pettinati told transfer expert Fabrizio Romano: “We had talks with Arsenal about Gabriel Jesus, we like the project – it’s a possibility we’re discussing”

    Has Hag enough

    Manchester United incoming boss Erik ten Hag wants the club to begin pre-season in late June – two weeks earlier than planned.

    Recalling the squad to training on June 20 would mean a number of United aces having to cut short their summer break.

    The Red Devils’ pre-season is set to start on July 4, a month before the next Premier League season gets underway.

    But in order to have his squad in tip top shape Ten Hag will ask his players to start two weeks earlier than originally scheduled, report The Mirror

    Mart his words

    Arsenal have been dealt a major transfer blow in their pursuit of Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez as his agent Alejando Camano has insisted he will not be quitting the club in the summer.

    Camano told TV programme ‘Como te va?’: “Sometimes the media publishes stories about his possible transfer but Lautaro is only focused on Inter, giving the fans joy and making them champions again.

    “Then he can start preparing for the World Cup with Argentina.

    “We are not expecting or looking for a transfer.

    “He is at Inter, he is happy, the city is wonderful. We are thinking only of Inter.”

    Lautaro has also been linked with Tottenham, who are now coached by his former Inter manager Antonio Conte

    Rice transfer hint

    West Ham star Declan Rice has given the biggest hint yet he will snub a move to Chelsea and Manchester United to stay at the Hammers.

    Speaking at the club’s end-of-season awards, Rice picked up the Hammer of the Year before being asked if they will see him for the start of the 2022/2023 campaign.

    The midfielder smiled and replied: “Yeah of course.”

    After the crowd started chanting his name, he added: “There has been so much speculation but you can see every time I put on a shirt what this club means to me.

    “Every time I step onto that pitch, every time I leave the pitch, I will always walk off having given 100 per cent and I will always give everything for this club and the manager and my teammates”

    Final efforts for Nketiah

    Arsenal are fighting desperately to keep Eddie Nketiah in the team.

    Nketiah looks almost certain to be moving on this summer with his contract up next month.

    According to the Daily Mirror, the Gunners are “pulling out all the stops” in a bid to convince the centre-forward that his career lies at the Emirates.

    Takeover situation latest

    The consortium led by Todd Boehly is ready to take over from departing owner Roman Abramovich at Chelsea.

    However, Boehly’s team still needs to be accepted by the Premier League and the UK government until the deal finally becomes official.

    Until then, the sanctions remain in full effect and the Blues can’t sell tickets, grant new contracts and buy or sell players.

    Therefore, any sort of transfer business won’t heat up until Boehly officially takes over at Stamford Bridge

    Pogba faces price cut

    Manchester United star Paul Pogba will have to take a pay cut to join one of Europe's elite.

    Pogba’s United deal is set to expire, and there is very little interest from either side to renew his time at Old Trafford.

    The midfielder is understood to make around £290,000-a-week at the Red Devils.

    And according to Italian journalist Alfonso Pedulla, the France international’s potential suitors cannot match that salary.

    Pedulla claims that former club Juventus can pay the 29-year-old a maximum salary of £130,000-a-week.

    While he adds that even mega rich Paris Saint-Germain won’t go much over £165,000-a-week.

    Real Madrid have also been strongly linked with the Frenchman but they are believed to be easing off now
