Timo Werner still has itchy feet in east Germany, and is open to landing his dream move next summer according to reports

What the papers say

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look to bolster his Manchester United strike force next summer and Jadon Sancho is top of the wishlist, reports the Evening Standard. Sancho, 19, was on the books at Manchester City as a youth player but currently plays for Borussia Dortmund, where he has scored 15 goals in 48 appearances.

The prolonged saga over Neymar's future continues, with the Daily Mirror reporting that Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are closing in on a deal. The paper says PSG want Ousmane Dembele to form part of the package, but the Daily Mail reports that the France forward does not want to leave the Nou Camp.

Liverpool target Timo Werner has suggested he is open to leaving RB Leipzig despite signing a new deal, reports the Daily Mirror. Werner has previously told FourFourTwo that playing in the Premier League is "a dream" and admitted in 2018: "Manchester United and Liverpool were the teams I watched quite a lot in England. They were the two that I’m a little bit a fan of, because they have so much history."

Asmir Begovic is looking for a way out of the Vitality Stadium after losing his first-team place to Aaron Ramsdale, with The Sun reporting there has been interest from France, Italy, Spain and the United States for the 32-year-old.

Caro Tifosi, Nonostante la vittoria di ieri non abbiamo riuscito a raggiungere il nostro obiettivo e finire la top 4 per offrirti la Champions la prossima stagione. Questa delusione non cancella tutto e desidero ringraziare lei. Grazie per il vostro sostegno, che è tanto più bello e sincero che l'inizio della nostra relazione è stato complicato. Grazie per il vostro amore quando ho vissuto momenti più difficili. Grazie per la vostra canzone che spesso risuona nella mia testa. Grazie a tutti per gli incoraggiamenti in strada o sui social. Grazie per fare di San Siro uno stadio unico. Grazie per questi belli ricordi che mi accompagneranno ovunque e per sempre. A presto. #ForzaMilan
