<div><p><strong>The French giants Paris Saint-Germain are set to finalize Philippe Coutinho’s move after Copa America</strong>. The 27-year-old Brazilian midfielder is a top priority for PSG’s sporting director Leonardo who has already been in contact with Coutinho’s agent. He declared he’s working hard to regain his top form and improve after failing to impress during his time at La Liga reigning champs Barcelona. He scored just 5 goals in 34 matches last season for Barcelona coming from the bench in 12 of them.</p><p><strong>Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp</strong> is looking to add some more firepower to his team and he thinks <strong>Barcelona’s forward Ousmane Dembele</strong> is the perfect for the Reds. According to reports Liverpool are already negotiating with the Catalan club after being told that Dembele is available. He joined Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund 2 years ago for £96.8 but has not been given enough opportunities so he failed to impress scoring just 18 goals in 65 matches across all competitions. It looks like Liverpool are not willing to pay £96.8 for Dembele but the experts are saying he could be a brilliant transfer for the Champions League winners.</p><p><strong>Real Madrid have reportedly made a bid of £90m for Manchester United’s superstar Paul Pogba</strong> but the Red Devils labeled him as non-transferable. Last weekend he admitted on social media that he was considering a move away from the Premier League saying that “After this season and everything that happened, with my season being my best season, it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else”. According to reports United’s board are thinking to make the French World Cup winner the joint-highest earner at the club with a huge £500,000-per-week new contract. The Red Devils are also expected to reject any offers below £150m for Pogba and there are not many teams in Europe able to pay the fee demanded by them so he will probably remain with the Premier League.</p><p><strong>Chelsea have reportedly rejected £35m bids from Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for their Brazilian winger Willian</strong> who has entered the finals year of his deal. Either they will lose him on a free transfer next year either they will offer him a new contract. There has been speculation that he’s close to signing a new two-year contract to keep him at Stamford Bridge.</p><p><strong>Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is huge favourite to replace Maurizio Sarri</strong> after the Italian left Stamford Bridge to take charge of Juventus. According to reports, Lampard is set to meet Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich on his yacht to negotiate his contract. If Chelsea hire him, they would have to pay Derby around £4m in compensation.</p></div>
