WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

Real Madrid are said to be plotting a £150m move for Harry Kane next summer, the Mirror reports. But according to the Times, Tottenham will demand £200m for the England international. It comes after Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane hailed Kane as the "complete player" ahead of their Champions League clash.

Newcastle are preparing to launch a January bid for Besiktas star Cenk Tosun, according to the Daily Star. The paper says the Turkish striker is at the top of Rafael Benitez's wanted list, and that the Magpies have been watching him in action for the past month. Tottenham and Crystal Palace are also said to be interested in the 26-year-old.

Arsenal are ready to find a buyer for Mezut Ozil after all but giving up hope of him signing a new deal, the Mirror reports. Arsene Wenger has already admitted the side may be forced to sell Alexis Sanchez and Ozil in the next transfer window, but the Gunners will now actually try to drive a deal to find a buyer for the Germany international, the paper says.
