Tottenham and Everton will tussle over the signature of Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, the Daily Star says. The club captain is out of contract next summer and the Saints may look to cash in before the midfielder leaves on a free transfer.

Manchester United could make a move for Donny Van De Beek, says the Sun. The Ajax and Holland midfielder has been subject of Premier League interest since breaking through into the first team in the 2016-17 season.
