Football rumours from the media

What the papers say

Georginio Wijnaldum might leave Liverpool for Paris St Germain or Inter Milan in the summer, according to Le Parisien. The 30-year-old Dutch midfielder’s contract expires in June, and Liverpool will likely lose him for nothing if they do not sign him to a new deal. While the Reds are eager to agree fresh terms with him, PSG and Inter are circling with potentially lucrative offers to lure Wijnaldum away.

Jurgen Klopp has a defensive target in mind in Brazilian centre-back Gleison Bremer, Tuttosport reports. The Reds made an unfulfilled attempt to sign Bremer in 2018, but are set to renew their bid for the Torino man in light of the fact their defensive stocks have been depleted by injuries this season as their title defence has run aground. Torino are reportedly eager to keep the 23-year-old, who has made 19 starts for them this season.

Manchester City are expected to be Chelsea’s main opposition in their likely bid to sign Norway striker Erling Haaland this summer, the Daily Star reports. The 20-year-old looks set to be the hottest commodity in world football in the summer after his stellar rise at Borussia Dortmund. Chelsea have made their keen interest known, but City are at the head of a list of other clubs considering making a move, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona mentioned in calculations.
