What the papers say

Chelsea are monitoring the contract situation of Bayern Munich’s Serge Gnabry, reports the Sun. The former Arsenal winger is into the final 18 months of his contract and talks are said to be getting complicated, which has alerted Chelsea and London rivals Tottenham.

Euro 2020 winner Domenico Berardi has been linked with a move to Leicester. The Sassuolo winger has spent the majority of his career in Emilia-Romagna but Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers is eyeing a flurry of summer activity and said to be a fan of the Italian, according to the Leicester Mercury.

Manchester United are reportedly confident they can still land their top transfer targets if they fail to qualify for the Champions League. ESPN reports the club are interested in signing England internationals Harry Kane and Declan Rice, and will not feel deterred if they miss out on a top-four finish.

The Evening Standard reports West Ham have taken up a two-year option in the contract of defender Ben Johnson to warn off interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool. The extension means the deal of the versatile full-back will run until 2024.
