Liverpool are set to take their interest in Darwin Nunez to the next level, while the Reds and Man Utd might also fight over a PSV midfielder. But first…

 

CHELSEA OPEN TO PART-EX DEAL FOR LUKAKU
Romelu Lukaku may finally prove useful to Chelsea. Not as a centre-forward, but as a makeweight for players Thomas Tuchel actually rates…

The £97.5million striker has flopped spectacularly since returning to Stamford Bridge and he has made no secret of his desire to return to Inter Milan. The Guardian says Chelsea have told Lukaku he can go, but only if the deal is right for them.

Inter would love to take Lukaku back but there is no way they can afford the finances required. So, according to La Repubblica, Chelsea have let it be known that they would be open to either Lautaro Martinez or Alessandro Bastoni being lumped in as part of the deal.

The Evening Standard carries a similar line but their report also mentions Milan Skriniar as one of the Inter players Chelsea would accept in a part-exchange move. The Blues, though, are not the only ones interested in Skriniar. Le Parisien says the centre-back is a top priority for PSG this summer.


MAN UTD AMONG PREM QUARTET EYEING PSV STAR
Chelsea are just one of the clubs being linked with Ibrahim Sangare. Apparently, half of the big six and Newcastle are keen on the PSV midfielder.

That’s the word according to Sky Sports, where ‘a source close to the 24-year-old’ says Sangare is convinced he will be playing in the Premier League next season.

Manchester United and Liverpool are also mentioned, with the defensive midfielder said to be available for just under £30million due to a clause in his PSV contract.

UNITED MAKE FIRST OFFER FOR DE JONG
United need at least one midfielder, with Frenkie De Jong obviously the priority target for Erik ten Hag. It seems like the Red Devils have spent the last few weeks trying to woo the Holland star but it would appear they now feel confident enough to make a formal approach.

Marca says United’s first bid to Barca has gone in and it could be worth £68million.

United’s opening offer is made up of a £51million initial payment with another £17million in add-ons.

 

LIVERPOOL’S NUNEZ BID READY TO GO
Many Liverpool fans will doubtless be spending their Thursday furiously scouring for the latest lines on Darwin Nunez. Here’s one…

That follows reports from Portugal on Wednesday that a bid had been made, which The Mirror and The Athletic said was premature, but Liverpool were getting their package together for the Uruguay striker.

ESPN says Manchester United are indeed still interested and the prospect of a bidding war doesn’t scare the Red Devils. Even if Nunez’s preference is thought to be for Liverpool because they can provide a Champions League stage next season.
