5. Barcelona to make new Dembele bid
Barcelona still expect to complete the signing of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund and will make an improved bid for him, Sport claims.
The German side rejected an offer from the Catalan side for the winger; while the France international failed to turn up for training on Thursday.
BVB have demanded €150 million for the 20-year-old France international. But Barcelona are confident their latest offer of €90m with €30m more in bonuses will convince them to sell.
4. AS Roma want €45m for Juventus target Strootman
The latest reports suggest that Juventus see Kevin Strootman as a top target before the end of the transfer window.
According to Tuttosport, Roma have revealed that the Dutch midfielder has a €45 million price tag.
The Serie A champions are said to have offered €30m for the midfielder, only to be rebuffed by their rivals. The Bianconeri, however, are unlikely to end their pursuit there.
3. Juventus ready to make Liverpool’s Emre Can move
Juventus are prepared to make a £23m offer to Liverpool to land midfielder Emre Can, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Premier League side Liverpool have held firm on a higher asking price. But with the German international having reportedly turned down a new contract with the Reds, the Italian side are hoping a deal can be reached.
