Arsenal boost for Nicolas Pepe

Lille have admitted to French television channel Telefoot they will be prepared to sell Nicolas Pepe for the right price in the summer.

Arsenal have been heavily linked with a raid for one of this season’s standout performers in Ligue 1.

Unai Emery will look to overhaul his squad at the Emirates this summer.

Head of recruitment Sven Mislintat exiting the Gunners will not impact any move for the 23-year-old.

John Terry urges Chelsea to keep Eden Hazard

John Terry has urged Chelsea to do everything they can to keep Eden Hazard this summer.

The Belgian winger has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and has stalled on signing a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

"There has been a transition over the last few years and they need a bit of time,” Terry explained on Sky Sports.

"If we kick on and keep the likes of Hazard, Willian and Pedro in this team, then we will have a chance to move forward and build around these players.”

Romelu Lukaku linked to Inter Milan

Romelu Lukaku is reportedly an Inter Milan transfer target.

That’s because Mauro Icardi is pushing for knee surgery.

If it's decided that the striker does indeed need it, then Inter will be looking for new strikers for the start of next season.

Lukaku is on their list, along with Atalanta's Duvan Zapata, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Liverpool and Arsenal boost

Liverpool and Arsenal have been boosted as Barcelona have cooled their interest in Adrien Rabiot.

Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claim the Catalan club have grown impatient with waiting to hear back from his representatives.

Rabiot is out of contract at the end of the season and has told Paris Saint-Germain he will not sign a new contract at the club.

Barca had reportedly made an £8.7million signing on fee offer - and the same sum as an annual salary.

But they will not look elsewhere leaving Arsenal and Liverpool free to pursue the Frenchman.

Jose Mourinho on Eden Hazard to Real Madrid

Jose Mourinho believes Chelsea star Eden Hazard has the talent to play for Real Madrid.

He told DAZN: “Regarding Eden’s ambitions… be it playing for Chelsea his whole life or playing for a giant like Real Madrid, I can’t say, because I haven’t spoken to him for a long time.

"[But] talking of talent... Does he have the talent to play for Real Madrid? He does.

"Does he have the personality to wear a shirt that weighs so heavy and to play in front of a crowd like the Bernabeu? Yes, he does.”

Man Utd told to sign three players

Manchester United need to make three signings this summer to compete at the top level, according to Ruud Gullit.

"You have somebody now from inside of Man United and he’s an instant success,” Gullit said. “You have all the players and the old players on TV backing him up.

"This is just the right way to do it. Give him the job. He’s part of Man United.

"I don’t get it, you tried already with three outsiders and it didn’t work at all.

"I know it’s difficult after Fergie, I know, but now you have somebody who everybody loves, everybody trusts him, he knows the club.

"All the players, everybody’s happy about that. Therefore give him the job and give him the players that he needs.

"He’s going to do well, he already has with these players and I think maybe he needs three others and I think he will do well.”
