Rumours we rate

Poch wants Pogba at PSG

Mauricio Pochettino has made Paul Pogba his top transfer target after taking over at Paris-Saint Germain.

The former Tottenham boss believes wantaway Manchester United man Pogba is the perfect player to build his new team around.

And Pochettino reckons he can beat long-time suitors Real Madrid and Juventus to the World Cup winner's signature.

Daily Star says: 8/10 – Pogba still looks to be headed for the Old Trafford exit, and PSG could be the perfect fit.

Chelsea keen on Upamecano

Chelsea have reportedly joined Manchester United and Liverpool in the race to sign Dayot Upamecano.

The Stamford bridge side are keen to trigger his £40m release clause when it becomes active this summer according to the Daily Mail.

RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff told German publication BILD that Leipzig will “sell top performers again if it makes financial sense”.

And that could be good news for Frank Lampard as the Chelsea boss looks to strengthen his defence.

Daily Star says: 7/10 – Lampard needs a long-term successor to Thiago Silva and Upamecano could fit the bill.

Rumours we don't rate

Man Utd lead race for Soumare

Manchester United are reportedly leading the race for Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare.

The 19-year-old Independiente del Valle ace has already caught the attention of Manchester United and Everton.

United had previously been cited as the favourites to land Caicedo, but according to the Guardian, Brighton are leading the race in a deal worth £4.5m.
