Football rumours: Another defender for Man City?

Football rumours: Another defender for Man City?

West Brom will let defender Jonny Evans leave the Hawthorns for Manchester City - as long as the price is right, the Sun reports. The paper said West Brom will expect £23.5million for the defender, who is also subject to interest from Arsenal - with boss Alan Pardew resigned to losing the 30-year-old during this transfer window.

Michael Lang could be coming into the Hawthorns, according to reports in the Mail. The 26-year-old is currently at Basel, but scouts from the Baggies have been watching the Swiss international during their training camp as a potential replacement for Evans, the paper said.

Newcastle are looking to bolster their squad with the loan signings of Everton's Aaron Lennon and Leicester's Islam Slimani, according to the Shields Gazette. Boss Rafa Benitez is looking at the loan market with Lennon out of contract in the summer and Slimani struggling for a game at the King Power.

The list of potential suitors for Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri continues to grow, with Manchester United leading a four-way battle for the defender, according to the Mirror. Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City are all looking to take on the 26-year-old who is also fancied by Paris St Germain.

Michy Batshuayi has caught the eye of West Ham boss David Moyes, who was at Stamford Bridge to watch the Belgian in action against Norwich earlier in the week, the Mail reports.

Players to watch

Tottenham are looking to sign Paris St Germain forward Lucas Moura, with Manchester United also interested, according to L'Equipe.

Paulo Dybala will have to submit a transfer request to leave Juventus, following interest from Manchester United, La Gazzetta Dello Sport reports.

Arsenal are closer to securing the services of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, according to Bild.
