LIVE Transfer Talk: PSG plot raid for Man City's Mahrez to replace Mbappe

The winter transfer window is closed, but now it's time to look ahead to the summer! Here are the new rumours floating around Europe's big leagues and beyond.

TOP STORY: Mahrez linked with shock PSG move

Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez will be allowed to leave the Etihad at the end of the season, with Paris Saint-Germain keen to bring the Algerian to Ligue 1, says Calciomercato.

Mahrez, 29, has had a hand in 23 goals in 37 games in all competitions this season to help guide City to the brink of the Champions League quarterfinals, but with Pep Guardiola's side potentially set to miss out on European football for the next two years following a UEFA ban, reports in the Italian press claim the former Leicester man will seek a move elsewhere to quench his desire to play Champions League football next season.

Thomas Tuchel's PSG could be forced into the market for a right-sided attacker in the summer if they lose prized asset Kylian Mbappe, who has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid.


22.05 GMT: Xherdan Shaqiri, Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren could all be leaving Liverpool this summer, according to the Liverpool Echo, with the club seeking to make space in the squad and the wage bill for potential incomings.

20.18 GMT: Would a move to Napoli be the slight step down from Real Madrid Luka Jovic needs to get his career back on track?

18.41 GMT: Would Bayern Munich make sense as a destination for soon-to-be out-of-contract Chelsea winger Willian?

17.04 GMT: Lyon's 16-year-old wonderkid Rayan Cherki has appeared on the radar of Barcelona and Real Madrid, says the Sun.

Cherki, who has impressed this season in Ligue 1, is also being tracked by Manchester United and Juventus, with the teenage winger set for a big decision this summer if Lyon decide to cash in on the interest.

15.26 GMT: Inter Milan's Alessandro Bastoni has caught the eye of Manchester City and Barcelona, says Tuttosport.

Bastoni has had a breakthrough season in Italy and Man City in particular are on the lookout for a talented young centre-back.

The 20-year-old Italian is now on Pep Guardiola's shortlist, but given he's a key part of Antonio Conte's squad, it's hard to see Inter letting him leave.

14.44 GMT: Tottenham might have to start looking for a new goalkeeper in the summer.

13.30 GMT: Miralem Pjanic has been struggling for form in recent months and La Gazzetta dello Sport says that Juventus are considering selling him.

The report states that the 29-year-old could be set to move on after he was dropped for the recent top-of-the-table clash with Inter Milan.

Having been in Turin since 2016, the Bosnia and Herzegovina international has a contract until the summer of 2023 and PSG are reportedly keen to sign him.

12.12 GMT: Chelsea have been tracking left-back Marc Cucurella during his loan spell at Getafe from Barcelona, says Goal.

The Spain under-21 star can sign for Getafe for €6m in the summer if they choose to buy out his loan, but as soon as he does there will be a €25m release clause in his contract.

That means Napoli, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen could get involved. And if Chelsea can't land No. 1 target Ben Chilwell from Leicester City they could turn to Cucurella as a cheaper option.

11.01 GMT: Barcelona have been consistently linked with Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, and now Tuttosport says he's been made aware of the salary he could earn if he joins.

Martinez reported has a €111m release clause in his contract and Barca are looking for a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez up front.

The Argentine, who has 16 goals in 31 appearances this season, could pocket the same money as Antoine Griezmann: around €325,000-per-week.

09.51 GMT: Sky Germany says that Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria has plenty of choices this summer, but Manchester United are favourites to land him.

Zakaria, 23, has been scouted by United, Liverpool, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund this season and the Switzerland international has been a vital part of fourth-placed Gladbach's push for Europe.

The club's sporting director, Max Erbl recently said: "I think that there is a very good chance that Denis will still be with us next year if we qualify for the Champions League."

However, we all know that when a club of United's size is interested in a player, they usually get what they want.

09.00 GMT: Arsenal will be rebuilding in the summer and Wolves star Diogo Jota is on their shortlist, says the

Jota, 23, has scored 15 goals in all competitions for Wolves this season and has certainly impressed as the club have climbed the Premier League table.

Sources have told ESPN that, as well as Jota, the trio of Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves are being eyed for moves to major clubs in Spain, France and England and that Wolves face a battle persuading them to stay.

Arsenal would be delighted to take on one of Nuno Espirito Santo's most important players, but if they can't promise European football and Wolves can, it's going to present a problem for the deal.

Juventus eye Aouar as Pogba alternative

Juventus are growing increasingly concerned that their attempts to sign Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba will be rebuffed, and the Serie A leaders are now lining up a move to sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar instead, according to Calciomercato.

The Frenchman has earned rave reviews for his performances in the Champions League this season, including his outing in Lyon's 1-0 victory over the Italians in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie at the end of February.

The 21-year-old has been a regular scouting assignment for the Juve technical team over the past two years but, following renewed frustration over their attempts to land Pogba, technical director Fabio Paratici is now seriously considering switching targets and launching a €60m move for the France Under-21 international.

Sarri plans move for out-of-favour Emerson

Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is set to return to his former club to make a summer bid for Blues left-back Emerson Palmieri, according to The Express.

The Juventus boss is keen to rework his defence, despite his side sitting at the top of Serie A after 26 games, and Emerson is at the top his summer wishlist. The Old Lady had a January move for the former Roma man rejected by Frank Lampard's side, but that hasn't deterred them from making plans to launch a second bid.

Emerson is believed to be open to a move, after falling out of favour at Stamford Bridge. The 25-year-old Brazilian has made only two appearances since the turn of the year, with Lampard preferring Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta in the left-back berth in 2020.

The bid for Emerson is expected to be in the region of £25m.


- AC Milan are keeping tabs on PSV Eindhoven full-back Denzel Dumfries and are set to make a move for the Dutchman in the summer, according to Calciomercato. The 23-year-old is expected to cost in the region of €15m, after impressing Rossoneri scouts with his performances in the Eredivisie this season.

- Gazzetta dello Sport claims Lazio are lining up moves for AC Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura and Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud at the end of the season. The 30-year-old Bonaventura and 33-year-old Giroud are both available on free transfers in the summer.

- Another from Calciomercato here with Napoli linked with a move for Hellas Verona full-back Davide Faraoni, and the player's agent has confirmed interest in the player from Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso. The 28-year-old Faraoni has scored three goals and assisted a further three from right-back in Serie A this season.
