25-year-old is becoming increasingly frustrated at Newcastle, open to leaving now

Allan Saint-Maximin is reportedly growing frustrated with life at Newcastle United as he has his eye on a move away to earn more money.

The Frenchman is being linked with Chelsea by the Daily Mail, and it seems he could be tempted to get a move out of St James’ Park to Stamford Bridge.

Saint-Maximin has been a joy to watch in his time at Newcastle, becoming one of the most entertaining attacking players in the Premier League.

One imagines he surely has the talent to succeed at a club like Chelsea, but it would also be interesting to see if Thomas Tuchel granted him the same kind of freedom that Eddie Howe allows him.

“He’s Ten Hag’s man” – Manchester United urged to pay up for potential €85million transfer

Manchester United need to be bold and pay the big money required to deliver the transfer of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

That’s the view of former Red Devils midfielder Luke Chadwick, who also spoke to CaughtOffside about Richard Arnold’s chat with fans at the pub earlier this week.

The new Man Utd CEO gave some honest answers to a few supporters over drinks after learning that they planned to protest outside his house.

Chadwick praised Arnold for the things he said, and felt it was encouraging to hear from him that money would not be an issue in the pursuit of the club’s transfer targets this summer.

With that in mind, Chadwick went on to say he’d like to see United pay up to bring in De Jong for new manager Erik ten Hag.

“It’s quite a strange situation…from what I understand, the meeting with the fans at the … Read the rest

Harrison has played a pivotal role at Leeds since he arrived from Manchester City, and with Raphinha’s future in doubt, Jesse Marsch won’t want to be losing two of his star players.

According to GOAL, Raphinha is close to securing a move to Arsenal, but it appears Leeds won’t be allowing Harrison to leave the club.

That’s according to talkSPORT, who claim Leeds have ‘no intention’ of allowing him to leave, amid interest from Tottenham and Newcastle, as seen in the tweet below.

Spurs favourites to sign left-footed Bundesliga centre-back

Tottenham Hotspur are having a great summer transfer window.

The Lilywhites, led by hard-hitting Italian manager Antonio Conte, have already made several signings, including Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan and Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Hove Albion.

However, despite the Londoners’ early shrewd business, Conte is not done there and according to a recent report from French outlet Foot Mercato, is targeting a centre-back next.

Super-agent and CaughtOffside columnist Roberto De Fanti recently confirmed which areas Conte is targeting this summer.

“He wants a striker to provide cover and competition for Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, a top midfielder and a left-footed centre-back – these are not going to be cheap players. We are talking £50m – £60m each,” De Fanti wrote in his exclusive column.

Although a new striker has yet to arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, following Bissouma’s recent move, the latest name to emerge as a … Read the rest

Agreement close: Arsenal set to increase their offer for Gabriel Jesus transfer

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on an agreement over the transfer of Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazil international has been a top target for the Gunners this summer, and Fabrizio Romano revealed in his CaughtOffside column earlier today that we could expect developments on the deal at some point today.

And now it looks like that update has come, with the Times reporting that Arsenal are growing increasingly confident of signing Jesus, and that the Gunners look set to improve their offer for the 25-year-old.

Jesus seems ideal for Mikel Arteta’s needs at the moment, with AFC short of quality in attack after losing both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in quick succession.

Barcelona chief provides fresh twist to Frenkie de Jong Manchester United transfer saga

Barcelona chief Eduard Romeu has provided a possibly significant update on the club’s finances that could impact Manchester United’s hopes of completing the transfer of Frenkie de Jong.

The Netherlands international’s future is the subject of plenty of speculation at the moment, with the Daily Mail among the numerous sources claiming he’s one of Man Utd’s top targets this summer.

Barcelona have had financial issues in recent times, which prevented them from keeping club legend Lionel Messi last summer, and it has been suggested that this could mean the likes of De Jong are available in this transfer window.

Still, now Barca vice-president Romeu seems to have distanced the club from these particular rumours, insisting that no players will be sold for financial reasons.

After deciding to depart Tottenham Hotspur in favour of a move to Inter Milan back in 2020, Eriksen, 30, went on to lift the Serie A title under Antonio Conte in his first full season.

The Nerazzurri’s 2020-21 league win saw Eriksen add to his impressive domestic trophy haul that already features three Eredivisie titles following his four years with Ajax.
