On the flip side, Spurs right-back Kieran Trippier could be heading for the exit door as the Mirror reports the north London club are preparing to consider offers for the 28-year-old this summer. The England international looks to be in high demand, with Atletico Madrid and Napoli both believed to be interested in making a move.

Wolves appear to be the frontrunners to land Porto striker Moussa Marega, according to the Mirror, as the club look to bolster their attacking options after a successful return to the top-flight, finishing in seventh this term. Leicester and West Ham are also said to be chasing the 28-year-old, whose contract includes a £30million release clause.

Burnley are closing in on long-admired defender Craig Dawson, The Sun says. Boss Sean Dyche has tracked the West Brom player for years, the paper says, and is now hopeful a £15million bid will bring the 28-year-old back to the Premier League.
