West Ham United prepare Arsenal target bid; while Tottenham Hotspur to bid £35m for Ajax defender. Borussia Dortmund want Cornet to replace Dembele; while Liverpool scout Brazilian midfielder.
5. Liverpool scout Brazilian midfielder Luan
Liverpool have made a late entry into the race to sign Brazil international Luan from Gremio, Globoesporte claims.
The 24-year-old midfielder is close to a deal with Spartak Moscow. But talks have been put on hold with the Russian side.
Liverpool had scouts in the stand to watch Luan in action for Gremio in their 2-1 Copa Libertadores win over Godoy Cruz on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Reds have not made an offer as of yet and will have to hurry if they want to snap him up.
4. Borussia Dortmund want Cornet to replace Dembele
Borussia Dortmund have named Lyon’s Maxwel Cornet as their main target to replace Ousmane Dembele should he join Barcelona, Kicker reports.
Dembele is said to have agreed on a deal to join the Catalan side already, and Dortmund are ready to pounce on the 20-year-old Lyon star who can play on either wing or up front. Cornet scored 10 goals in 51 games in all competitions last term.
