TOP STORY – LIVERPOOL JOIN RACE FOR RAPHINHA

With Sadio Mane's departure imminent, Liverpool are ramping up their interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha , according to the Mirror.

The Brazil international has long been linked with Barcelona, but their much-publicised financial troubles require them to sell assets first.

Takumi Minamino could be used as part of a package to sign the 25-year-old, who contributed 11 goals and three assists as Leeds secured Premier League safety.

Whites manager Jesse Marsch is reportedly a fan of Minamino, whom he worked with at Salzburg, leaving Liverpool with potential leverage over a deal.

ROUND-UP

Arsenal are willing to offer Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus a weekly wage of £190,000 to sign the Brazil international, according to The Sun.

Manchester United are keen to secure the signature of Christian Eriksen on a free transfer with his short-term deal at Brentford expiring, per the Mirror.

Roma boss Jose Mourinho has emerged as an alternative to Zinedine Zidane in replacing Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain , the Daily Mail reports.

Chelsea are in the race to sign Ousmane Dembele , who could be available on a free transfer at the end of the month, per Talksport.
