Today's football rumours: Lukaku eyes Italy, Wilson on Rodgers' radar and more

The latest gossip from Planet Football...

What the papers say

Romelu Lukaku is keen to join Juventus in the summer if he is forced to leave Manchester United, according to The Sun. It's understood that the Red Devils could look to offload the 25-year-old when the transfer window opens, with the Belgium forward willing to join Juventus and link up with Cristiano Ronaldo, the paper says.

New Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is targeting Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson for a summer transfer, The Sun claims. The 27-year-old has also attracted the attention of West Ham and Chelsea, but could be tempted by a move to Leicester.

Manchester City are monitoring Luka Jovic as they look to bolster their attacking ranks, the Daily Mail reports. The paper says City have been watching the 21-year-old at Eintracht Frankfurt games for several months, although Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are also said to be keeping tabs on him.

Liverpool target Timo Werner has reportedly agreed terms on a transfer to Bayern Munich. The Daily Mirror cites reports in Germany suggesting that the RB Leipzig striker, who has also been linked with Barcelona and Real Madrid, is set to head to the Allianz Arena.
