What the papers say
Bayern Munich will reignite their interest in Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi in the summer, the Mail says. After an unsuccessful bid in the January transfer window, the German club are set revisit another £35million offer for the England Under-19 international, the paper reports.
Juventus are considering a summer swoop for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, The Sun reports. The Italian giants are reportedly hoping to bring the revived midfielder back to the Allianz Stadium to work alongside fellow Premier League target Aaron Ramsey. Pogba has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford before when Jose Mourinho was at the helm but has recently returned to form under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
After being limited to loan signings in January, Arsenal boss Unai Emery is looking to secure three players, including a new left-back, at the end of the season, according to the Mail. The Gunners boss will be restricted to a transfer budget of £45million, the paper says, which could potentially see the departure of some highly-paid stars to free up funds.
Arsenal and Tottenham may have to be prepared to battle Juventus for the signature of Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez come the summer, the Mirror reports. Both Premier League outfits have been linked to a possible move for the 27-year-old, who is currently on loan at Bayern Munich, but former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly put out a rallying call for the attacker to join him in Italy.
