    Crown Jules – Kounde target

    Chelsea have “put in place” plans to sign Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde after reaching a verbal agreement, according to reports.

    The Blues are set to lose Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen for FREE this summer to Real Madrid and Barcelona, writes JOSHUA MBU.

    And according to Goal, Chelsea have put plans in place to sign long-term target Kounde from Sevilla as soon as Todd Boehly’s takeover is completed and sanctions end.

    The 23-year-old has a verbal agreement in place for a move this summer and wants a move to Stamford Bridge after talks collapsed last summer.

    Sevilla are also said to be keen to do a deal as early as possible to allow them to sign a replacement.

    The LaLiga outfit want a fee or around £59million for the France international, who can play both centrally and at right-back.

    Arteta handed transfer warchest

    Arsenal are set to hand boss Mikel Arteta another huge transfer warchest despite missing out on Champions League qualification, reports claim.

    The Spaniard spent £150million on fresh talent last summer, as he attempts to rebuild his squad, writes ETIENNE FERMIE.

    The Gunners looked set to achieve a surprise top four finish – only to blow it in the final weeks of the season.

    Should Tottenham avoid defeat at Norwich on Sunday, Arsenal will be consigned to the Europa League.

    According to the Telegraph, however, failure to reach Europe’s premier competition won’t affect the North Londoners’ spending power.

    Club chiefs view the upcoming window as a “major opportunity” to bolster their squad.

    Despite missing out on a lucrative Champions League payday, many of Arsenal’s targets will remain the same as if they had qualified.

    Whether they will still be able to attract that high class talent, remains to be seen.

    First Dybs for Spurs?

    Tottenham are reportedly in talks to sign Juventus free agent Paulo Dybala, writes ANTHONY CHAPMAN.

    Transfer guru Pedro Almeida claims Spurs have joined Manchester United and Arsenal in the race for the Argentina forward.

    And Antonio Conte’s Juve links could seal the deal, with sporting director Fabio Paratici already holding talks with Dybala’s representatives.

    The versatile attacker, 28, has confirmed he will leave Turin when his contract expires next month.

    Dybala has been at Juventus since 2015 after a move from Palermo.

    And he is regarded as one of world football’s top talents, having won five Serie A titles and four Italian Cups.

    Ten Hag in London

    Erik Ten Hag has arrived in London on a private jet and could attend Manchester United's final game of the season, writes ETIENNE FERMIE.

    The Dutchman flew in on Wednesday afternoon alongside assistant Mitchell van der Gaag.

    The duo had previously been working for the Red Devils remotely, so as not to distract from Ralf Rangnick's preparations for United's final game of the season against Crystal Palace.

    According to the Mail, Ten Hag and Van der Gaag could be in attendance at Selhurst Park to watch their new side in action.

    Both men are expected to meet with Red Devils colleagues today.

    Rangnick, however, will continue preparing United for Sunday's final match.

    Good morning footy fans

    Jose Mourinho wants to link up with Nemanja Matic for a third time by bringing the midfielder to Roma, according to reports in Italy.

    Mourinho, who previously managed the Serbian at both Chelsea and Manchester United, has made no secret of his admiration for Matic.

    The 33-year-old is out of contract at Old Trafford this summer, and looks nailed on for a move to the Italian capital on a free.

    Elsewhere, Borussia Dortmund are preparing to make an offer for young Chelsea defender Ian Maatsen, according to BILD.

    The Bundesliga club want to bring the 20-year-old Dutchman in on loan initially with a view to a permanent move if he impresses at Signal Iduna Park.

    Maatsen has spent a successful year on loan at Coventry, making 40 appearances as the Sky Blues registered their highest league finish in 16 years.

    Meanwhile, West Ham United are considering a £20million move for Watford striker Emmanuel Dennis.

    The Mirror believe that the Londoners are looking to bring in a new striker as competition for Michail Antonio, and are seriously considering the Nigerian hitman.

    Finally, Raheem Sterling has been tipped to stay at Man City and snub Arsenal’s advances.

    That’s the view of Steve McManaman, who reckons Sterling won’t want to leave City for Arsenal if the Gunners aren’t in the Champions League next season.

    De Jong given career advice

    Frenkie de Jong has been urged to snub Man United and remain with Barcelona by Steve McManaman.

    The ex-Liverpool star told HorseRacing.net: “For him to go to Manchester United then I think they’d have to pay him more than he’s earning at Barcelona.

    “Which I think will be a really hard thing to do considering that he went to Barcelona for a huge amount of money.

    “You’d rather stay at Barcelona in the Champions League with Xavi trying to change things around.

    “Players like [Andreas] Christensen and [Robert] Lewandowski potentially coming in makes that a more exciting challenge in my opinion.”

    Arsenal transfer plans 'in tatters'

    Arsenal's summer transfer plans lie in tatters, according to TeamTALK,after Monday's defeat at Newcastle left them highly unlikely to qualify for the Champions League.

    The Gunners will miss out on a top-four spot unless North London rivals Tottenham lose at bottom-of-the-table and already relegated Norwich on Sunday.

    Mikel Arteta and sporting director Edu had identified a number of transfer targets, but now risk losing them without the prospect of Europe's elite competition.

    Those include Paulo Dybala, who had been tipped to move to the Emirates from Juventus, but now appears destined to stay in Italy with a switch to Roma or Inter.

    Darwin Nunez and Victor Osimhen will also supposedly reject a move to the Premier League unless Champions League football is also on the agenda.

    Paqueta spotted 'in Newcastle shirt'

    The Brazilian was visiting his great friend and international teammate Bruno Guimaraes in the north-east, and was supposedly snapped while having a kickaround in the midfielder's garden.

    Paqueta has been linked with the Toon Army since Guimaraes' arrival in January, and could be ready to follow his pal in making a £58million switch to St James' Park in the summer.

    However, once again, Arsenal are also interested in the player, as our French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
