Transfer rumours and paper review - Saturday, August 12: Barcelona to move for Eriksen and end Coutinho interest? Spurs close to first summer signing?

  • Sat, 12 Aug 2017 20:16

Here are the top transfer-related stories in Saturday's newspapers...

Barcelona have set their sights on Tottenham's Christian Eriksen after Liverpool refused to sell Philippe Coutinho. (Independent)

Tottenham have made their move for Pape Cheikh Diop although they face strong competition from Lyon for the highly-prized young midfielder from Celta Vigo. Cheikh has a release clause in his Celta Vigo contract worth nearly £25m. (Daily Mail)

Danny Drinkwater has been left in the dark over his future with Chelsea yet to follow up a £15 million bid that Leicester City rejected earlier this summer. (Daily Telegraph)

Riyad Mahrez’s potential move from Leicester City to Roma remains in limbo after the Serie A giants told Leicester they will not increase their offer. The Italian side’s director of football Monchi has told the Foxes they will not go any higher than the £32million bid this week. (The Sun)

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is ready to raid Chelsea for Eden Hazard. Real wanted to snap up Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe but the Ligue 1 champions have spurned their advances and Zidane is now looking at alternative options. (Daily Star)

Jack Colback has almost certainly played his last game for Newcastle United after a training ground row which has seen him banished from the first-team set-up. Colback will be left out of Benitez's 25-man Premier League squad and the Magpies have already offered him to other clubs, although his £40,000-per-week wages are thought to be a stumbling block. (Daily Mail)

Burnley boss Sean Dyche will launch a £15million bid this weekend to sign Leeds United’s prolific striker Chris Wood. The Clarets’ manager has made signing Wood his top priority and wants the powerhouse striker to replace Andre Gray. (Daily Mail)

Swansea are set to launch a £20m bid for Joe Allen despite Stoke declaring the midfielder is not for sale. Manchester City’s Wilfried Bony and West Brom’s Nacer Chadli are also on Swansea’s radar. (Daily Mirror)

Tony Pulis is confident he will have five new signings at West Brom this summer. Middlesbrough centre-half Ben Gibson, Everton midfielder Gareth Barry and Crystal Palace right-back Joel Ward are all high on Pulis’ wishlist. (The Sun)
