    CHAMBER OF SECRETS

    Fulham are considering a move to sign Arsenal defender Calum Chambers as they prepare for their return to the Premier League.

    Chambers, 25, had a successful season on loan at Craven Cottage two years ago when he was voted the club’s Player of the Year.

    Now Fulham boss Scott Parker is keen to bring the former England international back on a permanent deal.

    Chambers has been sidelined since suffering a ruptured cruciate during his one and only appearance for new Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta last December.

    But he is back in training and expects to be ready to return to action by the end of next month.

    Chambers cost £12million when he joined Arsenal from Southampton six years ago but has rarely been a first team regular during his time at the Emirates.

    RUDI SURPRISE

    Liverpool are eyeing a shock transfer for Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, according to reports.

    Frank Lampard is thought to be willing to listen to offers for the 30-cap German after a string of underwhelming performances this season.

    He endured a difficult afternoon in the FA Cup final against Arsenal and then dropped for the 4-1 defeat at Bayern Munich.

    But even so, according to Mundo Deportivo, Jurgen Klopp is prepared to make a swoop to land the 27-year-old.

    The Reds are keen to bring in another centre-back this summer after selling Dejan Lovren.

    FLICK THE SWITCH

    Thiago Alcantara has bee urged to move to the Premier League – by his Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick.

    And the club's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge admits he is ready to sell the Liverpool target for a “fair” price.

    The 29-year-old midfielder only has a year left on his contract with the Bundesliga champions and is looking for a new challenge.

    He has already informed Bayern he wants to leave with Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp keen to bring him to Anfield.

    And his manager Flick has urged him to head to England, telling Bild: “Now he wants the new challenge, in my opinion it should be the Premier League.”

    IN FOR THE DYL

    Highly-rated young midfielder Dylan Levitt is reportedly set to leave Manchester United on loan this summer.

    The Manchester Evening News claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to give the 19-year-old minutes away from Old Trafford in a bid to boost his development.

    Levitt, a regular in Ryan Giggs’ Wales set-up, starred for United’s Under-23s this season.

    And he made his first senior appearance under Solskjaer during last November’s Europa League defeat to Astana.

    However, the route to a regular first-team spot is tough.

    And Levitt now looks set to leave on loan, with a number of Championship clubs believed to be keen but the prodigy is also believed to be open to a move abroad.

    OUS NEXT ON OUR LIST?

    Manchester United will reportedly turn to Ousmane Dembele if they fail to land Jadon Sancho.

    Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman and Juventus ace Douglas Costa are both also on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's radar.

    The Borussia Dortmund star, 20, remains their top target, but the move is looking increasingly unlikely.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been forced to consider alternative options to Sancho.

    According to ESPN, United have held informal talks over a move for Dembele.

    Barcelona are allegedly open to offers for the 23-year-old following his underwhelming three year spell in Spain.

    HIGGY STAR DUST

    Juventus will reportedly offer Arsenal a choice of Gonzalo Higuain, Douglas Costa or Cristian Romero in exchange for Alexandre Lacazette.

    The Gunners are hoping to reduce their wage bill this summer transfer window while creating funds for new signings.

    The French striker could be one of the stars to depart with the Italian champions keen on the hitman.

    And The Athletic claims new boss Andrea Pirlo is ready to offer Mikel Arteta his choice of three men to help facilitate a deal.

    Striker Higuain, who turns 33 in December, is unlikely to interest the North London outfit, with the combination of his age and high wages making him an unattractive proposition.

    It has also been claimed winger Costa looks unlikely to be heading to Arsenal.

    SANCHO 'WON'T HAND IN REQUEST'

    Jadon Sancho will NOT hand in a transfer request, according to David Ornstein.

    He said in the Tifo Football podcast: “Dortmund are in a strong situation contractually.

    “I don’t think Jadon Sancho is the type to rock the boat unless he was desperate to move and I’ve not had any indication he is desperate to move.

    “He is a highly professional footballer… and I’m sure he’ll carry on playing for Dortmund.

    “He is [Manchester United's] top target, let’s not forget. They do have back-up options, some of those options might be as a permanent deal, some might be on loan.

    “One of those options is Douglas Costa of Juventus. So it’s not Jadon Sancho or bust, but he is their top target.”

    SANCHO LATEST

    Jadon Sancho may have to force a move to Manchester United – after being left in a frustrating limbo, writes NEIL CUSTIS.

    The Borussia Dortmund winger, 20, had his heart set on a switch to Old Trafford, believing last week that the deal could get done.

    It has now hit a brick wall leaving Sancho feeling helpless – and faced with the dilemma of putting in a transfer request or demanding to leave.

    United have been left frustrated by the player’s representatives as well as Dortmund’s refusal to deal with them directly.

    The German club have appointed an agent as an intermediary to negotiate with United and have rejected their offer of £70million rising to £110m based on honours and appearances.

    Sancho’s representatives have also snubbed United’s contract bid.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    SunSport can reveal that Kyle Walker has been assured of his Manchester City future after a heart-to-heart with Pep Guardiola.

    The England defender, 30, feared he was for the chop this summer as part of a defensive overhaul.

    Walker was worried after being reprimanded by City and blasted by fans for twice breaking lockdown restrictions.

    But SunSport understands the player and boss Walker and Guardiola have become close and bonded over the past few months during lockdown.

    The right-back has been told his place in the starting XI is safe and there are no plans to replace him.

    City have looked at bringing in another player in his position but only as back-up and to provide some competition for a place.

    A source said: “Pep put his arm around Kyle during the lockdown. They have become very close.

    “He has become a bit of a father figure to him throughout this whole period and they have bonded.”

    Elsewhere, Fulham are considering a move to sign Arsenal defender Calum Chambers as they prepare for their return to the Premier League.

    Chambers, 25, had a successful season on loan at Craven Cottage two years ago when he was voted the club’s Player of the Year.

    Now Fulham boss Scott Parker is keen to bring the former England international back on a permanent deal.

    Chambers has been sidelined since suffering a ruptured cruciate during his one and only appearance for new Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta last December.

    But he is back in training and expects to be ready to return to action by the end of next month.

    And finally, Tottenham have confirmed the signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton.

    Spurs have been chasing the Danish midfielder, 25, for months and saw a £20million bid – plus add-ons – accepted last week.

    YELLOW WALL

    Jadon Sancho may have to force a move to Manchester United – after being left in a frustrating limbo.

    The Borussia Dortmund winger, 20, had his heart set on a switch to Old Trafford, believing last week that the deal could get done.

    The German club have appointed an agent as an intermediary to negotiate with United and have rejected their offer of £70million rising to £110m based on honours and appearances.

    Sancho’s representatives have also snubbed United’s contract bid.

    They are offering around £220,000 a week, with Sancho’s side understood to be wanting nearer £250,000 a week.

    Now he could tell Dortmund he wants out to make the deal happen.

    PLAYING SARR-D BALL

    Watford have told Crystal Palace they will not take a loss on £30million record signing Ismaila Sarr.

    Palace boss Roy Hodgson wants the Senegal international, 22, to replace unsettled Wilfried Zaha at Selhurst Park.

    And the Eagles are keen to sign Sarr even if Zaha does not get the big money summer move he is seeking.

    But managerless Watford have no intention of reducing their valuation of the winger, despite having to cut costs to adjust to life outside the top flight.

    And they are even hoping to start a bidding war to push the player’s price beyond the £30m they paid Rennes for him last summer.

    A number of Premier League clubs have been linked with Sarr in recent weeks but Palace are the only one to have made a firm inquiry.

    Aaron Ramsey's representatives have slammed Juventus exit reports as “nonsense.”

    Reports emerged that new boss Andrea Pirlo was planning to flog the midfielder as he plans a major squad clear out.

    Ramsey, 29, was limited to just 11 Serie A starts in his debut campaign at the Old Lady under Maurizio Sarri.

    But he will be hoping Pirlo's appointment will help kick-start his career in Italy under the former midfield maestro.

    QUIN IT TO WIN IT

    Exclusive by Steve Brenner: Arsenal are eyeing a £25million move for Ajax ace Quincy Promes.

    The Gunners were linked with the Dutch forward, 28, last year following some excellent displays.

    Promes scored 16 goals and added five assists in 28 games before the coronavirus lockdown ended the Eredivisie season.

    Liverpool have been hot on the trail of the winger in the past.

    But Mikel Arteta, who has already moved for out of contract Brazilian Willian, is keen to bring Promes to North London and kickstart his summer transfer plans.

    A source close to the player told SunSport: “Quincy would go in a heartbeat.

    “It would be a great move for him – and Arsenal.”

    TA, BOSS

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given the thumbs up for youngster Tahith Chong to join Werder Bremen on a season-long loan.

    The 20-year-old asked the Manchester United boss to leave the club next season after being limited to just three Premier League substitute appearances.

    Chong was in the squad to face Copenhagen in their Europa League quarter-final win but remained an unused substitute.

    And after learning of Werder Bremen's interest, he has his heart set on a temporary switch to the Bundesliga club.

    Chong's agent Erkan Alkan told Bild: “Mr Solskjaer kept his promise from March and told Tahith that he can leave the club.

    “The boy really wants to go to Werder.

    “He wants to be part of the preparation as soon as possible so that he can quickly find his way around.”

    TIME TO BAILL

    Eric Bailly has been offered to Turkish giants Fenerbahce, according to reports.

    The Manchester United defender has missed much of this season with a knee injury, making just 10 appearances.

    Bailly, 26, has had to compete for his first-team place this term with captain Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

    Reports in Istanbul now claim the centre-back's advisors have approached Fenerbahce offering the Ivory Coast ace on a one-year loan.

    The Yellow Canaries are seeking major defensive reinforcements after their disappointing seventh-place finish.

    And Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could now grant Bailly a stint in Turkey to help him recapture his best form.

    The Super Lig club would guarantee Bailly regular first-team football, setting him up for the final year of his Red Devils contract in 2021.

    Now, according to ESPN, Barcelona star Dembele has been considered as a “possible alternative”.

    It is reported that “United have held informal talks over a move for Dembele”.
