Goal takes a look at the biggest transfer news and rumours from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and beyond


PSG could target Benzema


Paris Saint-Germain could turn their attention toward a summer move for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, reports Le10Sport.

The 30-year-old has endured a difficult season in Madrid, and could welcom a move back to his homeland. 

PSG are also after Robert Lewandowski and Mohamed Salah, but Benzema could prove a more affordable option than that duo. 


Ribery & Robben close to signing new Bayern deals


Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic hinted Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are set to extend their respective contracts for another year.

Both Robben and Ribery have deals which are due to expire at the end of the season, though it seems they will be sticking around for a little longer.

Bayern officials have had to field questions about the possibility of the experienced pair remaining for much of the season and, while nothing has been signed, Salihamidzic suggested confirmation is not far away.

Barca in no rush to talk renewal with Umtiti


Barcelona are in no hurry to talk with defender Samuel Umtiti about an improved contract, according to Mundo Deportivo. 

The French defender has been hoping for a raise on his current deal, with Manchester United heavily linked should Barcelona not make an acceptable offer.

But the La Liga leaders have been put off by Umtit's lack of committment to the cause and his recent run of poor games. 


Chelsea make move for Sarri 


Chelsea have reached out to Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri about becoming their new head coach, according to the Mirror

The 59-year-old has impressed during his time at Napli and could be in line to replace his fellow Italian Antonio Conte, who appears set to leave after two seasons. 

Sarri is understood to have a £7 million release clause in his contract.


Liverpool want Suso back


Liverpool are plotting an approach to bring Spanish forward Suso back to Anfield from AC Milan, claims Calciomercato.

The 24-year-old, who left Merseyside in 2015, has a £35 million release clause in his contract and could see that triggered after impressing in Italy.


Modric and Kroos could both depart


Real Madrid midfield duo Toni Kroos and Luka Modric could both be set for a summer exit, according to Don Balon.

Modric has been strongly considering a move back to the Premier League, where he starred with Tottenham between 2008 and 2012. 

Kroos could also be heading for England, with Manchester United having already made an offer for the Germany international. 


Kovac set for Bayern job


Former Bayern Munich defender Niko Kovac is set to rejoin the club as head coach, according to Bild.

The ex-Croatia international is winning many admirers with his work in the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt. 

And his record, added to his knowledge of the Bavarian giants, appear to have tipped the balance in Kovac's favour as Bayern prepare to announce the successor to interim boss Jupp Heynckes for the coming season.


Fulham will fight to keep Sessegnon


Fulham are determined to not sell teenage star Ryan Sessegnon should they secure promotion to the Premier League, according to the Evening Standard.

The 17-year-old is high with Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain all keeping a close watch. 

But, with the Cottagers sitting second in the Championship, they will do all they can to keep the £50 million-rated left-back should they win promotion.


Chelsea join the race for Militao


Chelsea have joined the race for Sao Paulo defender Eder Militao, reports the Mirror

The 20-year-old Brazil U-20 international is rated at £20 million, and can play in defense and midfield. 

The Blues will face a fierce battle to sign Militao, who has also drawn interest from Manchester United, Man City, Porto and Borussia Dortmund.


Milan offered Badelj


The agent of Fiorentina midfielder Milan Badelj has offered his client to AC Milan, reports Calciomercato.com.

Badelj is out of contract at the end of the season, and has drawn interest from Tottenham and Sevilla among other clubs.

The 29-year-old Croatia International is expected to make a decision on his future by the end of the month.  


Tevez and Hernandez on D.C. United wish list


D.C. United have Carlos Tevez and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez on their summer wish list, reports the Washington Post.

The MLS side are moving into a new stadium in the summer, and hope to make a splash with a big-name striker signing. 

And the club thinks the pair from Boca Juniors and West Ham would fit that bill. 


Inter plot move for Bale


Inter are set to make a summer bid for Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, according to  The Independent.

Bale has fallen down the pecking order at Santiago Bernabeu, and Serie A outfit Inter are planning a bid should it become clear the Blancos will sell the Wales international.

Manchester United no longer hold an interest in the former Tottenham man, clearing the path for a possible switch to Italy.


Courtois wants PSG move


Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has his heart set on joining Paris Saint-Germain, according to  RMC Sport.

The Belgium international has held talks with the Ligue 1 leaders regarding a potential transfer.

The Blues are unwilling to sell, however, and would even allow Courtois to run down the final year of his contract next season rather than let him go this summer.
