Everton must make bold move to sign £89m Wolves target, would be a superb signing – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Everton are looking to bolster their attacking department this summer, and have been linked with players like Mario Mandzukic and Rafael Leao.
Marco Silva already has a wealth of attacking talents at his disposal, but with Ademola Lookman likely to depart, he should look to bring in one quality attacker to bolster his squad.
With that in mind, Everton should join the race to sign Angel Correa from Atletico Madrid.
Premier League duo – Wolves and Tottenham Hotspur – have shown interest in signing the Argentine international, who is likely to leave the club this summer.
Correa understands that he is likely to drop down the pecking order at the club following the arrivals of Joao Felix and Ivan Šaponjić.
The Argentine, who has a release clause of €100 million (£89 million) in his contract, surely would be considering new options where he would be getting regular games.
The Argentina international is a versatile forward and is a top-class talent. He joined Atletico in 2014 and has scored 30 goals in over 175 appearances in all competitions till date.
The 24-year-old can play across the front three and will add a whole new dimension to Everton’s attack thanks to the perfect blend of hard work and creativity that he brings to the game.
Obviously, no club would pay his release clause, and Everton can sign him for a knockdown price. He has the potential to develop into a world-class player, and would be a superb signing for the club.

Euro giants eye move for 29-year-old star, some Spurs fans react: 'WTF Poch and Levy are doing?'

Euro giants eye move for 29-year-old star, some Spurs fans react: 'WTF Poch and Levy are doing?' – originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to reports from Sky Sports, French giants Paris Saint-Germain are looking to sign Danny Rose from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.
The 29-year-old wants to fight for first-team places at Spurs but it seems the north London club are looking to offload him this summer.
Rose has been left out of Tottenham’s tour to Singapore and he is not in Mauricio Pochettino’s first-team plans for the upcoming season.
The England international has a wealth of experience and would be a good addition for any side in the world. It seems PSG are looking to sign him.
The report claims that Spurs will be looking to recoup £20m for the left-back they signed from Leeds for £1m in 2007.
Spurs are lining up a move for Ryan Sessegnon as a potential replacement of Rose.
Some Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction after the news broke out. While the majority of the fans understand Tottenham’s decision to offload the defender, they are not convinced with the fee quoted.
Here are some of the best reactions from the Spurs fans on Twitter:

20 mil??? Nah nah nah

OMG…WTF Poch and Levy are doing? Rose/Walker> Davies/Foyth…
— ckc (@alsckc) July 18, 2019

Totally agree with all the comments here…
Really don’t want to see him leave – but if he does (for whatever reason) £20m is nowhere near his true value In today’s market.
— Ian Young (@y0ungy8) July 18, 2019

£20M? Sounds like a fire sale.
— Aaron Pitters (@aaronpitters) July 18, 2019

We are seriously going to sell 2 international full backs in their prime for £40m when a full back who’s played a handful of games goes to Utd for £50m? Something isn’t right
— Jamie Waller (@baldyjw) July 18, 2019

£20 million for home grown best left back in the league last season? Ffs man
— Steve (@steview6203) July 18, 2019

Worth a lot more than £20m, if someone gets him for that price then that’s the bargain of the century. Still wouldn’t let him go, he doesn’t want to go and still has loads to give even if we do sign @RyanSessegnon #DontSellDannyRose

Report confirms Steve Bruce's transfer kitty at Newcastle this summer

Report confirms Steve Bruce's transfer kitty at Newcastle this summer – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Newcastle United have appointed Steve Bruce as their new manager.
The former Aston Villa boss will be handed a significant warchest to strengthen his side before the start of the new season.
According to Sky Sports, Bruce will be allowed to spend more than £90m this summer.
Newcastle United have already sold a key player in Ayoze Perez and that has bolstered their transfer kitty.
It will be interesting to see who they bring in to replace their attackers now. Rondon left the club upon the expiry of his loan spell and the Venezuelan is now heading to China.
Newcastle must bring in two quality attackers and then improve their defence.
Benitez made them punch above their weight last season. In reality, Newcastle are quite mediocre and they will need investment to turn their squad around.
Although the reported transfer kitty will excite the fans, it will be interesting to see how much Bruce actually spends.
Mike Ashley has over-promised and under-delivered in the past.
Steve Bruce has a massive challenge ahead of him and he will need the full backing of the owner in order to succeed.
A strong summer could set to the tone for Newcastle heading into the new season.

£20k-per-week Spurs ace would be a superb signing for Leeds, club ready to sell

£20k-per-week Spurs ace would be a superb signing for Leeds, club ready to sell – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa must be looking to sign a centre-back in the summer transfer window after Pontus Jansson was sold to Brentford.
The Yorkshire club have been linked with a move for Aston Villa defender James Chester, but it will take a lot of convincing to lure him away from Villa Park.
The Whites are reportedly ready to pay £7.5 million for the Wales international, but Villa may not be keen to sell him despite Dean Smith signing four new defenders this summer already.
With that in mind, Leeds should make a move for Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers who could be sold by the north London club.
The Daily Mail reported that Spurs are willing to sell the 21-year-old defender. And Leeds must not miss out on the opportunity to sign the player who is on £20,000 per week wages at Spurs.
The USA defender spent the entire 2018-19 campaign on loan at Swansea City where he duly impressed. He made 27 starts and further seven appearances came from the bench.
He would be a part of a side that are expected to fight for promotion this season should he join Leeds.
Bielsa has a strong relationship with Mauricio Pochettino, and Spurs probably won’t block a move for Carter-Vickers if Leeds show interest in him.
The move makes sense for all parties involved, and surely he would represent a very smart signing.

Deal close: Rangers star on the verge of leaving Ibrox

Deal close: Rangers star on the verge of leaving Ibrox – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Glasgow Rangers winger Daniel Candeias is reportedly on the verge of leaving the Ibrox club in the summer transfer window.
According to reports from Ajansspor, Super Lig new boys Genclerbirligi are close to sealing a deal for the winger who made 52 appearances for Steven Gerrard’s Light Blues last season.
He no longer appears to be part of the manager’s plans and was recently left out of Gers’ Europa League squad for the tie with St Joseph’s.
Although Candeias responded to his Euro omission by netting a double against Marseille in the weekend, it seems his time is up at Rangers.
Rangers have bolstered their wing position in the summer transfer window having signed players like Sheyi Ojo, Jake Hastie and Jordan Jones. And Candeias is likely to drop down the pecking order at the club.
The Portuguese winger, who was signed by Pedro Caixinha, has only a year left on his contract, and it looks like Genclerbirligi could be the next (12th) club in his career.

Opinion: 28y/o EPL winner could be perfect replacement for Zouma at Everton

Opinion: 28y/o EPL winner could be perfect replacement for Zouma at Everton – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Everton enjoyed the services of Chelsea centre-back Kurt Zouma during a season-long loan at Goodison Park last season.
The France international has since returned to Stamford Bridge where he is looking to convince manager Frank Lampard that he deserves to be in his first-team next season.
While Toffees’ boss Marco Silva is still not giving up on having Zouma back on Merseyside, there is little time left in the summer transfer window and he must act quickly.
Should Everton fail in their pursuit of the Frenchman, there is another quality centre-back they could bring back to the club, though.
According to Sportsmail, Manchester City have told Eliaquim Mangala that he can leave for free this summer after manager Pep Guardiola didn’t include him in their pre-season squad to Asia.
The 28-year-old played twice for Everton in 2017-18 during a loan spell for the second-half of the campaign, but a knee injury which required surgery ended his season.
The Premier League winner, who arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Porto for £42 million in 2014, becoming the most expensive defender in British history at the time, surely wants to prove himself all over again, and snapping him up for free could make sense for the Blues.
Everton need depth at the back next season, and Mangala could provide that, or even manage to turn his career around and force his way into Silva’s starting XI.
It’s a harmless risk that is worth being given a shot.

Report: Leeds ready to pay £7.5m for 35-cap int'l from PL club

Report: Leeds ready to pay £7.5m for 35-cap int'l from PL club – originally posted on Sportslens.com

According to reports from the Daily Star, Leeds United are looking to sign Aston Villa defender James Chester in the summer transfer window.
The Yorkshire club are looking to bolster their central defence this summer having sold Pontus Jansson already.
Marcelo Bielsa is looking to find a suitable replacement and has targeted the Welsh defender. The report claims that Leeds are even ready to pay £7.5m for the 35 times capped defender.
The 30-year-old is currently out in the United States with the rest of the Villa squad.
Chester has a wealth of Championship and Premier League experience and would be a superb addition to the Leeds squad. However, whether the player would agree to drop down the league remains to be seen.
Villa have bolstered their defence this summer with Dean Smith bringing in as many as four new players to compete with Chester in the coming Premier League campaign.
In fact, Smith has stated that Chester is a key player for his side, and he is very much a part of his plans.

Opinion: £70k-per-week transfer listed PL player would be an excellent signing for Newcastle

Opinion: £70k-per-week transfer listed PL player would be an excellent signing for Newcastle – originally posted on Sportslens.com

One of the areas where Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce will be looking to bolster this summer is the attacking department.
Both Ayoze Perez and Joselu have left the club in the summer transfer window, while last season’s club-top scorer Salomon Rondon has agreed to join Rafael Benitez in the Chinese Super League.
The Magpies are reportedly close to signing Joelinton for a club-record fee, while Bruce is looking to bring in one more striker at St James’ Park.
According to reports from Football Insider, Newcastle United are planning to submit a bid for Southampton striker Charlie Austin in the coming weeks.
The 30-year-old has been transfer-listed by Southampton, and the Saints are willing to cash in on the forward this summer.
He has a year remaining on his contract with the Saints and is valued at around the £8million mark.
Austin, who is on £70k-per-week wages at Southampton, would be an excellent signing for the Magpies. He has a wealth of Premier League experience, and won’t take much time in settling in at Tyneside.
He still has a lot of football left in him, and all he needs is confidence and support. At Newcastle, he is expected to get regular games, and Bruce could bring out the best in him.
Many Newcastle fans believe that he would be a good addition to the side, and Newcastle must move quickly to secure him at the earliest.

'This signing is my dream': Some West Ham fans react after knowing who Pellegrini wants to sign next

'This signing is my dream': Some West Ham fans react after knowing who Pellegrini wants to sign next – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos impressed last season for the Ibrox club and has been linked with a move to West Ham this summer.
The Gers striker impressed in his first season with 18 goals in all competitions. However, he took his game to the next level last season under Steven Gerrard managing 30 goals in 48 games.
Rangers haven’t received any bids for him yet, but according to latest reports Premier League duo, West Ham and Crystal Palace are showing keen interest in signing the Colombian international.
The Hammers have already splashed big money on Sebastien Haller but they need one more striker ahead of the next season.
The likes of Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll have all left the club, and the Hammers boss must sign another striker before the end of the transfer window.
Morelos is a fantastic young striker but his poor disciplinary record goes against him. He picked up a staggering 18 yellow cards and five reds last season, and that is why despite his obvious talent, many Hammers fans have urged the club to avoid making a move for him.
Here are some of the best reactions from West Ham fans on Twitter:

This signing is my dream.
— Steve Merry (@steve_merry7) July 17, 2019

Morelos is a decent enough player but Scottish PL is a poor standard and he is extremely temperamental – 5 red cards last season and management having to constantly defend him would be a nightmare to have in the PL.
— Josh Verrills (@WestHamJoshV) July 17, 2019

Would be very happy with this
— West Ham Place (@WestHamPlace) July 17, 2019

Would be a class signing ngl
— Reece (@reeceferguson72) July 17, 2019

Not hard to score a lot in Scotland… will be a big step up for him if it happens

Villa must move quickly to sign 24-year-old target after Euro club enter bidding war

Villa must move quickly to sign 24-year-old target after Euro club enter bidding war – originally posted on Sportslens.com

Aston Villa have splashed £100 million on new players since they secured their return to the Premier League.
The Villans have lost a host of players and a major shakeup was necessary. The likes of Mile Jedinak, Alan Hutton, Tommy Elphick, Albert Adomah, Glenn Whelan, Ritchie De Laet, Mark Bunn and Micah Richards were released by the club.
Also, both Axel Tuanzebe and Tammy Abraham returned to Manchester United and Chelsea respectively after their loan spells.
Villa spent big on new players – Björn Engels, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Wesley Moraes, Matt Targett, Kortney Hause, Anwar El Ghazi and Jota – but Dean Smith has said that he needs more players ahead of the new campaign.
“We’ve done business so far, eight signings and we’ve done it all even before pre-season has started and they’re all with us now,” said Smith, as quoted by The Mirror.
“It’s a great start to know what we’re about and what we want from them moving forward. There will be some more additions because we need to make sure the strength of that squad is good.”
It’s time Villa must start bringing in players on the cheap, and that is why the newly-promoted Premier League side must do everything to sign Trezeguet this summer.
According to reports from TMW, Seria A outfit Sampdoria have joined the bidding war to sign the 24-year-old Kasimpasa winger.
Villa had a £9.9million bid accepted for Trezeguet this summer already, but it seems Sampdoria are willing to match that amount and hijack the deal.
He impressed at the World Cup in Russia with Egypt and enjoyed a fantastic 2018-19 campaign, where he was involved in 19 goals for his club.
Villa must not miss out on this opportunity to sign him, and if needed must pay £2-3 million extra to secure his signature at the earliest.
