Tottenham hold strong interest in Leeds teenager Archie Gray

Tottenham are very interested in Leeds teenager Archie Gray after watching the versatile defender a number of times last season.

The 18-year-old made 52 appearances as Leeds failed to earn promotion back to the Premier League, predominantly at right-back, with 30, but also 10 times in defensive midfield and a handful in central and attacking midfield roles.

Football.London report that Ange Postecoglou has been impressed and has earmarked Gray as possible competition for right-back Pedro Porro, who plays an inverted role.

With Emerson Royal likely expected to join AC Milan, Spurs will need a new right-back and Gray is a target. Monaco's Vanderson has also been linked.

Man United begin talks over £42m Matthijs de Ligt

Manchester United are ready to look at alternatives to Jarrad Branthwaite, and have begun talks over signing Matthijs de Ligt.

Talks according to Sky Germany, who report that Bayern are ready to cut their losses on the Dutch centre-back and would accept a deal woth around £42million for the player they signed for £65m just two seasons ago.

That asking price is significantly lower than the £70-80m Everton want for Branthwaite.

De Ligt may have lost his way somewhat at Juventus and then Bayern, and has lost his place with the Netherlands, but his best form came under Erik ten Hag at Ajax.

One to watch.

Chelsea face late competition from Bayern for Michael Olise

Not many clubs who are not keen on Michael Olise, it would seem.

Chelsea and Manchester United are both pushing to sign the Crystal Palace star, who is valued at £60m, and they could now face competition from Bayern Munich.

Sky Germany report that Olise is on Bayern’s shortlist of targets, and a late swoop is in the offing despite Chelsea agreeing personal terms with the young French star.

It’s suggested that the Bundesliga side are willing to sell Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman, which could lead to them eyeing Olise.
