Arsenal have entered talks with agent Mino Raiola over Roma star Kostas Manolas.

That’s according to La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, who claims the Gunners are discussing a £31million deal.

Manolas, 27, is available for £31.1m (€36m) due to a release clause in his contract.

And Arsenal are in talks with the Greece international’s agent Raiola, who was given a three-month ban by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) last week, which was extended worldwide by FIFA’s disciplinary committee.

“Arsenal are really interested in signing Kostas Manolas, who is expected to cost €36M (termination clause) from Roma,” Schira wrote on Twitter. “Contacts ongoing between Gunners and his agent Mino Raiola.”

Juventus are interested in replacing Massimiliano Allegri with Maurizio Sarri.

Allegri will leave his position as Juventus head coach at the end of the season.

Now, Goal claim Juventus have made contact with Sarri’s representatives about taking the role.

10:15 UPDATE: Deal agreed: Daniel James to Man Utd

Manchester United and Swansea have agreed a £15million fee for Daniel James.

The winger, 21, dazzled in the Championship this season – scoring five times and providing 10 assists.

And his exploits look to have secured him a transfer to Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to rebuild his squad with an emphasis on youth.

The Daily Mail claim an ‘agreement is now in place’ between the two clubs for the Wales international.

Brighton, Everton and Newcastle were reported to be interested but United have seen them off with an attractive transfer fee and wages.

10:00 UPDATE: Connor Wickham signs

Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham is looking to put his injury nightmare behind him after signing a contract extension.

The 26-year-old missed half of the 2016-17 season and the whole of the following campaign with a cruciate knee ligament injury, and then groin and calf problems restricted him to only eight appearances this season.

However, with just 12 months remaining on his contract, the club have moved to tie him down for an additional year with an extension taking him up to 2021.

“It meant a lot that the club backed me after such a serious injury and I hope I’ll be able to repay that faith shown in me,” he said.

09:45 UPDATE: Wanted: Ryan Fraser

Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the battle to sign Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser.

Fraser, 25, enjoyed a fabulous season with the Cherries – netting eight goals and providing a staggering 16 assists in all competitions.

Unai Emery’s Gunners have been credited with interest – but they have company from Merseyside.

The Sun claim Liverpool are hopeful of taking advantage of Fraser’s contract situation, which has 12 months left to run.

Eddie Howe’s side have offered ‘fresh terms’ but the Scottish international is ‘unlikely’ to agree.

The Sun add that Manchester United and Chelsea could be tempted to submit a £30million offer this summer.

09:30 UPDATE: Sign Gareth Bale!

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been told to sign Real Madrid ace Gareth Bale this season.

The Red Devils are expected to do big business this summer after missing out on the top four.

And former United winger Ben Thornley believes Bale would be the perfect addition for the club this summer.

“I for one would not be unhappy at all if we signed somebody of Gareth Bale’s ilk,” Thornley told Tribalfootball.

“It’s been well documented that things have not gone brilliantly for him recently at Real.

“I don’t think too many Manchester United fans would be unhappy about having a stellar signing like him coming to the club.

09:15 UPDATE: David de Gea demand

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign a David De Gea replacement this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils have tried to tie the Spain international down to a new contract but, with PSG and Juventus circling, they have been unable to reach an agreement.

And, now, journalist Duncan Castles has claimed that Solskjaer is looking to replace De Gea this summer.

Castles told The Transfer Window podcast: “[Solskjaer’s] looking for a goalkeeper who is more comfortable with the ball at his feet.

“So it seems Solskjaer is saying ‘if I have to change, I’m gonna use this as an opportunity to change tactically and sign a goalkeeper who would be comfortable playing the ball from the back and playing behind a high line.’”

09:00 UPDATE: Paul Pogba price-tag

Manchester United want to keep hold of Paul Pogba this summer and have reportedly set a price tag of £140million.

There are expected to be many comings and goings in the summer with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial potential departures.

Pogba has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer but TuttoMercatoWeb report that United are keen to keep hold of the Frenchman.

And to scare off any potential suitors, it’s claimed that Manchester United have put a €160m (£140m) tag on the World Cup winning midfielder.

08:45 UPDATE: Inter Milan want Rom

Inter Milan are gearing up to sign Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, reports claim.

Lukaku, 26, arrived at Old Trafford from Everton in a deal worth £75million and fired in 27 goals during his debut season.

However, the Belgian international lost his place to Marcus Rashford this season following the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

FC Inter News claim the Red Devils are prepared to listen to offers in the region of £52million for Lukaku.

But with the Serie A club’s summer budget believed to be £44million – Inter will use Ivan Perisic as a makeweight in a deal that would lower the fee to £26m.

08:30 UPDATE: Eden Hazard exit

Chelsea are ready to sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid this summer – despite the threat of a transfer ban.

Hazard, 28, has one year left on his contract and is expected to end his seven-year stay at Stamford Bridge after next week’s Europa League final.

The Daily Mail claim that Chelsea will allow their Belgian star to join Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu because they need to balance the books to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.

It’s said the Blues are looking for £87million for Hazard in the next few months rather than see him leave for free next year.
