Pochettino is keen on a Kane reunion at PSG and Haaland’s contract demands have been revealed…

 

POCH KANE LOVE-IN
Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants to reunite with Harry Kane at Paris Saint-Germain.

Poch has continued his close relationship with Kane according to the the Mirror, with the pair regularly swapping WhatsApp messages.

The report claims any move for the £150million-rated Spurs star depends on the futures of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, who are both linked with moves elsewhere.

Daniel Levy has supposedly slapped an ‘enormous’ £150million valuation on his star striker to deter interest from Manchester City and Manchester United, who are both in the market for a new marksman.

Qatari owned PSG are one of the few clubs who could currently afford the outlay necessary to land Kane  and Pochettino wants his buddy as the man to replace either Mbappe or Neymar if they move on this summer.

 

ERLING DEMANDS
The bidding war for Erling Haaland could be something to behold this summer.

The 20-year-old – who’s scored 25 goals in 24 games this season – is a reported target of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Although there is a £68m buy-out clause in his contract, that cannot be triggered before the summer of 2022.

And Dortmund expect to get at least £100m should they decide to sell him this July – such is the demand for his signature.

The interested parties have now been told what it will cost in personal terms to persuade Haaland to join them at the end of this season.

The Daily Star claims he and his representative Mino Raiola are demanding a five-year package worth £78million, or £300,000-a-week from suitors.

PARTEY PARTNER?
Arsenal have reportedly made Club Brugge midfielder Odilon Kossonou one of their transfer priorities this summer.

Brugge are currently 13 points clear at the top of the Belgian league, with Kossonou contributing significantly to their success this season.

The Mirror claim Arteta sees him as a cheap option to play alongside Thomas Partey in the centre of midfield, with the Gunners thought to be able to sign the Ivorian for £8.5million with performance-related add-ons.

The 20-year-old – who joined Brugge from Swedish side Hammarby – is also drawing attention from Inter Milan but is reportedly keen on a move to the Premier League.
