Premier League transfer news and rumours

Juve plan Dybala swap deal for Salah

Italian champions Juventus are reportedly prepared to offer Paulo Dybala plus £43.9m to Liverpool for striker Mohamed Salah.

The Serie A leaders want Egypt star Salah to partner Cristiano Ronaldo in attack next season. Juve will test Liverpool’s resolve, the Daily Mirror says citing Tuttosport, with the sensational swap deal including Argentine forward Dybala.

However, according to The Sun Juve have ruled out selling Dybala this summer because they “cannot sign Lionel Messi or Neymar to replace him”.

Dybala, 25, has also been recently linked with Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea.

United target quartet

Manchester United have four players on their transfer target list for the summer. The shortlist includes Napoli centre-half Kalidou Koulibaly, their No.1 target, as well as Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, Atletico Madrid left-back Lucas Hernandez and Juventus winger Douglas Costa.

Chelsea bid £39m for Jovic

More reports from Germany claim that Chelsea have made a £39m bid for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic. The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Frankfurt from Benfica and the German club have “exercised their right-to-buy clause as part of the deal”. Jovic has scored 19 goals this season and has also been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid. (Metro)
