UNITED AND LIVERPOOL EYE FIORENTINA DEFENDER
Manchester United and Liverpool currently have around a dozen centre-backs between them, even if most are injured or not fit for purpose.
So, according to Sky Germany, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jurgen Klopp will fight over another one this summer. Apparently, United and Liverpool have both been in touch recently with Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.
The Serbia defender is expected to leave La Viola next summer before he begins the final year of his contract in Florence. Fiorentina are said to want around £30million for the 23-year-old.
There are plenty of other clubs keen on Milenkovic. Manchester City have recently been credited with an interest, while it is reported Borussia Dortmund have made contact with his representatives.
PSG TO MOVE AGAIN FOR ARSENAL STAR
Hector Bellerin could also be on the move next summer. The Arsenal defender has been linked with moves away from the Emirates at regular intervals in recent years and speculation is swirling once more.
PSG were keen to land Bellerin last summer but Mikel Arteta persuaded the Spaniard to stick around for another season. But CBS says the Parisians will try again this year and Arteta will have his work cut out if the manager wants to keep his right-back.
Barcelona and several clubs in Italy are also said to be keen on Bellerin, who is still only 25. Which we’re more surprised about than perhaps we should be.
EUROPEAN GIANTS MAKING MOVES FOR AGUERO
Similarly surprising is the lack of noise so far around Sergio Aguero. The Argentina striker is going free this summer and, frankly, there should be a clamour of clubs waiting to take Manchester City’s greatest ever goalscorer.
It seems now there is a queue starting to form, and Aguero could have some interesting choices.
The Mirror says Barcelona, PSG, Juventus and Inter Milan have all been in contract with the 32-year-old.
BAYERN TARGET ANOTHER CHELSEA WINGER
Todofichajes have been flinging plenty of sh*t at the wall over the last couple of days and here’s another story which may or may not stick.
Apparently, Bayern Munich are sniffing around Christian Pulisic. The Chelsea winger has spent a year and a half at Stamford Bridge and though Thomas Tuchel indicated his keenness to keep Pulisic when he was asked last week, the Blues boss also suggested that the decision was not only down to him.
Bayern are said to be monitoring Pulisic’s position while they consider bringing the 22-year-old back to the Bundesliga. Pulisic moved to England from Borussia Dortmund for £58million in a deal in 2019 and the story goes that Chelsea would expect to get their money back.
The Germans have long been linked with Callum Hudson-Odoi, who might be in the mood to listen again to any offers.
