Inter Milan are closely monitoring the situation of Paulo Dybala and would like to take the opportunity to offer themselves the star of their rival, Juventus, for free next summer. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve and the Argentine international have moved away from an extension, even if everything remains possible, and a departure is far from being excluded at the end of his contract. Inter won’t be able to match Turin’s €10m offer, but could offer him a slight increase in his current salary and a nice signing bonus.

According to Tuttosport, Barcelona and Tottenham could also court the 28-year-old striker.

Barcelona have not abandoned the Alvaro Morata track and would still like to convince Juventus to break the loan of the Spanish international. The Catalans will thus contact Juve again and offer Memphis Depay in exchange, according to Sport. Morata also still wants to join Barca.

The Barcelonans would also have leads for next summer as well. According to Picture, the Catalans are said to be very interested in Bayern Munich’s German international Niklas Süle. The 26-year-old central defender is at the end of his contract in Bavaria in July and is open to all offers.

Like Inter with Dybala, Real Madrid would be ready to steal a player from their biggest rival. While the Antonio Rüdiger track seems closed following his salary demands deemed too high, Real could turn to young Barça defender Ronald Araujo, according to AS and RBK.

The Merengue are satisfied with the Alaba-Militao pair and are looking for a young defender to complement. Florentino Pérez would then be delighted to offer himself one of the most promising defenders of the Catalans. The 22-year-old Uruguay international will have just one year left on his contract in July. According to Sport, Barça have however scheduled a meeting with the player to offer him an extension.

According to RMC, Jorge Sampaoli would have made Nicolas Tagliafico his defensive priority. Pablo Longoria would do everything to satisfy him but the file seems complex for the moment. OM can only offer Ajax Amsterdam a loan with an option to buy. If the Argentinian international knows Sampaoli well and seems ready to leave the Netherlands, after losing his starting place, English clubs have been interested in him for several months and could offer a bigger salary.

The Marseille leaders will however try until the end to convince Ajax and the player who would be a big blow for the Olympian club. OM could also return to the charge this summer in the event of failure in January. The Phocaeans would also be on the verge of recruiting Sead Kolasinac as announced in recent days if a contract termination agreement is reached with Arsenal.

The 22-year-old Kosovar international is expected to sign with Les Dogues for the next five years for around 7 million euros. The player scored 11 goals and provided 17 assists in 74 games for FC Basel.

Lille could also turn to Hatem Ben Arfa if Yusuf Yazici leaves for Moscow. The 34-year-old Frenchman, free and without a club since July, would be in contact with the Lille leaders and could sign as soon as the official Turkish is loaned.

LOSC has also announced the arrival of two young Africans. The first is 18-year-old Cameroonian midfielder Carlos Baleba, and the second is 16-year-old Burkinabe attacking midfielder Joffrey Bazié.
