Man City to move for Barcelona's Gonzalez

Manchester City are prioritising the signing of Nico Gonzalez from Barcelona, reports Fichajes.

The Premier League side are looking for a player to bring in next summer to help strengthen their midfield and Pep Guardiola sees the 20-year-old as an ideal option.

Barca, however, have no interest in selling their youth system graduate and will demand a high price.

Chelsea move for €40m Ekitike

Chelsea have approached Reims over a possible move for Hugo Ekitike, according to Foot Mercato.

The 19-year-old forward has attracted interest from Newcastle, but Chelsea have swooped in with the intention of signing him at the end of the season.

Ekitike is said to be valued at around €40 million (£33m/$46) by Reims.

Benzema will leave Real Madrid if Haaland arrives

Karim Benzema has told Real Madrid that he wants to leave the club if they sign Erling Haaland.

El Nacional reports the striker has notified president Florentino Perez that he wants to continue at the Santiago Bernabeu.

But he will look for a way out if they bring in Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. However, if they go for Kylian Mbappe instead, he will not push for a way out of the club because he has a good understanding with his France team-mate.

Juventus consider Martial offer

Juventus are considering a bid for Anthony Martial, says Calciomercato.

The striker has asked to leave Manchester United this month and manager Ralf Rangnick said this week that Martial did not want to be part of the squad for the clash against Aston Villa.

United have already turned down a bid from Sevilla, but Juventus could swoop for Martial if they are unable to land Mauro Icardi from Paris Saint-Germain.
