What the papers say

West Ham are looking to make their loan deal for Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard permanent, reports the Daily Mail. Lingard, 28, reunited with former manager David Moyes when he signed for the Hammers in January and has scored six times in eight appearances, but other clubs could look to scupper a deal as the midfielder has found form.

Chelsea and Tottenham are the latest clubs to be linked with a move for Sergio Aguero, after the striker said he would be leaving Manchester City. The Daily Telegraph says the Argentine wants to stay in the Premier League and is willing to miss out on Champions League football next term.

Liverpool will look to seal long-term deals with four key players, reports the Times. The Anfield outfit want to tie Virgil Van Dijk, Fabinho and Alisson Becker to new contracts but will prioritise talks with Mohamed Salah.
