What the papers say
Borussia Dortmund will ask up to £130million for Jude Bellingham according to The Sun after the rising price tag ended Liverpool’s interest in the teenage midfielder. Manchester City have emerged as leading contenders to land the 19-year-old, but Manchester United could join the race if the club’s sale is completed in time.
Burnley boss Vincent Kompany, 37, is Tottenham’s top target to replace Antonio Conte as manager, according to The Sun. The Belgian has impressed chairman Daniel Levy with the way he has steered Burnley back to the Premier League in his first season in charge.
The Times reports on another target for Tottenham, linking Arne Slot with the vacant manager’s role. West Ham and Crystal Palace are also reportedly interested in the man who has taken Feyenoord to the brink of the Dutch title.
