Everton ready to test Frank Lampard’s resolve after Idrissa Gana Gueye exit

Everton are on the verge of selling Idrissa Gana Gueye to PSG according to French publication RMC and have identified Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko as a possible replacement.

Bakayoko spent last season on loan at AC Milan but when the Italian side failed to qualify for the Champions League they didn’t have the funds to meets Chelsea’s valuation, which is understood be to around £31million.

The 24-year-old joined the Blues for £40m from Moncao in 2017 but has struggled to secure a regular place in the Blues' first-team.

New boss Frank Lampard could soon face the decision of whether he is willing to sell the player, given that the club cannot bring in a replacement for quite some time - Chelsea are currently under a two-window transfer ban from FIFA, following an investigation into their signing of foreign under-18 players.

Inter Milan haven’t given up on Lukaku yet

Inter Milan are preparing to make a new bid for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku according to The Sun.

The reports suggest new boss Antonio Conte had convinced the club’s chiefs of the importance adding Lukaku to his squad this summer.

The 26-year-old Belgian has fallen down the pecking order behind Marcus Rashford at United and is understood to be willing to make the switch to Serie A.

The Nerazzurri have failed to meet United’s £75m valuation with their previous bids and this might be their last opportunity with Juventus having now joined the hunt for the Belgium international.

Alfredo Morelos scouted

Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos has been scouted by AC Milan.

Steven Gerrard ran out of patience with the Colombian international's poor disciplinary record last season but he is set on keeping him in Glasgow for another year to boost his hopes of clinching silverware.

Morelos scored 30 goals in all competitions last time out but revealed his desire to play at the highest while on international duty.

The 22-year-old has been in impressive form during Rangers’ Europa League qualifiers and already has four goals for the season, but he could fancy a move after missing out on Colombia’s Copa America squad.

In worrying news for Gers fans one of the most famous clubs in world football are considering a move for their star striker, with AC Milan scouts present for their wins over both St Joseph’s and Progres Niederkorn.

The Evening Times have claimed that Milan have not yet made a bid for the forward but remain interested, with Gerrard not willing to sell for anything less than £15million.

Real Madrid's Rodriguez rethink

Real Madrid will keep James Rodriguez after Marco Asensio's injury, according to El Chiringuito’s Josep Pedrerol.

The Colombian play-maker has spent the last two years at Bayern Munich and was expected to leave again this summer.

Napoli and Atletico Madrid were both linked with the star, who cost Madrid around £60m back in 2014.

But Los Blancos will now keep Rodriguez and offer him a chance to revive his Bernabeu career.

That's with Asensio having ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament against Arsenal this week, which is set to sideline him for the bulk of the new campaign.

Liverpool told to sign Coutinho

Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool should explore the possibility of re-signing Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona - at the right price.

Coutinho left the Reds for Barca for around £142million in January 2018 but could be on his way out of the Nou Camp just 18 months later.

“I’d bring Coutinho back, yeah. If the opportunity was there,” Liverpool legend Carragher told Off The Ball.

“Only if it was a good deal for Liverpool. Liverpool got a great deal when he was going.

“If you could get a good deal coming back [then I’d do it] because I think he’s better than the options Liverpool have of that type within the squad.

“I think it’d give everyone a massive lift.

“It’s just another goal threat from a different area that Liverpool don’t have.”

Sarri on Dybala

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri appears to be planning for life with Paulo Dybala in his team despite interest from Tottenham and Manchester United.

Tottenham are said to be leading the chase for Dybala having made contact with the Italian giants over what would be a club-record deal.

He is also a long-term target for Manchester United and reports Italy say manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to team him up with Marcus Rashford in an all-star attack.

However, Sarri's recent comments suggest he is key to his plans as he prepares for his first season in charge of the Serie A champions.

Sarri said: "I think Dybala can play as a false nine quite comfortably.

"We can also set up the attack slightly differently, with the 4-3-1-2 and Dybala playing on the right of a front two.

"We’ll try to give continuity to the good things we did in the second half [against Tottenham] in Singapore."
