West Ham exodus

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is set to wield the axe at the London Stadium at the end of the season with NINE players for the chop.

Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez will all be on their way as Pellegrini overhauls the Hammers' frontline.

Adrian, Pedro Obiang and Samir Nasir will be shown the door too as the West Ham gaffer shows his ruthless streak.

The Mirror reckon Sam Byram, Jordan Hugill and Edimilson no longer have futures in east London beyond the summer either.

Antony meetings

Arsenal are one of several clubs interested in signing Brazilian teenager Antony.

Antony, 19, has only made six senior appearances for Sao Paulo - bagging two assists - but already has a handful of suitors with Ajax, PSV, Monaco and Lyon all interested.

Antony’s agent Junior Pedroso, who also represents Tottenham’s Lucas Moura, has flown to Europe to hold a series of meetings, Yahoo journalist Jorge Nicola claims.

Nicola adds that Antony has a £42million release clause in his contract - but his entourage think they’ll get a £21m offer this summer.

Kenny Lala-land

Arsenal have been joined by Premier League champions Manchester City in their pursuit of Strasbourg defender Kenny Lala.

That’s according to French publication Le10 Sport, who claim the talented right back would cost upwards of £13million.

Unai Emery wants a right-back to provide cover for Hector Bellerin, while City boss Pep Guardiola wants someone to rival Kyle Walker for a starting berth.

Lala, 27, has made 35 appearances in all competitions this campaign, netting four goals and providing a further 10 assists.

Wanted: Martell Taylor-Crossdale

Chelsea teenager Martell Taylor-Crossdale is being tracked by three English clubs.

That’s according to The Mirror, who claim Southampton, Fulham and Bristol City are all interested in signing the England Under-20 international.

Taylor-Crossdale is out of contract in June and could be picked up as a free agent should the Blues not negotiate a new deal.

The 19-year-old was lethal in Chelsea’s Under-18 squad - netting 35 goals and providing six assists. However, he’s been less effective at Under-23 level with just one goal during a 5-0 EFL Trophy thrashing of Plymouth.

David Moyes return

David Moyes admits he would prefer a return to club management but is open to the prospect of working in international football.

Moyes' odds of being named Scotland boss fell after he attended games at Celtic, St Mirren and Rangers last weekend but he has also been linked with a return to Parkhead, with Neil Lennon only given a short-term contract when he stepped in following Brendan Rodgers' exit.

Moyes told talkSPORT: "I prefer the day-to-day but can I see myself being a national manager? Of course.

"But at the moment my first choice would be to go back into club management."

Zidane makes Bale decision

Zinedine Zidane has told his Real Madrid bosses he doesn't want Gareth Bale to be part of his squad next season.

Los Blancos’ recent 1-0 defeat at struggling Rayo Vallecano symbolised Bale’s struggles to score goals for his team.

And Marca now report that the Real coach has told club bosses that the winger has no future under him in Madrid.

It is said Zidane is only keeping Bale in the team to ensure his market value doesn’t drop too low, although finding a buyer will prove to be tough.

Manchester United were keen when Jose Mourinho was in charge but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not reportedly in the market for the ex-Tottenham man.

Cristiano Ronaldo back to Man Utd?

Cristiano Ronaldo is wanted back at Manchester United by Jesse Lingard.

"I would love [Manchester United] to sign [Cristiano] Ronaldo," Lingard told the Daily Mirror.

"He has been one of the best players in the world over the last decade.

"He has been here before so he would slot right back in.

"Growing up he was just unbelievable to watch in a United shirt, so on a personal note it would be amazing to play with him."

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has confirmed he will be at Crystal Palace next season despite interest from Man Utd.

"The situation just shows that my performances don’t go unnoticed,” Wan-Bissaka told the Evening Standard.

"But I am with Crystal Palace at the moment. That is where my contract is and that is where I will be next season.

"I have got three years left on my contract. It says I am going to be there, so that is all I can focus on now.”

Man Utd swap deal

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is willing to let Paul Pogba leave for Real Madrid if he secures one of Toni Kroos or Raphael Varane in return.

Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer, with Los Blancos determined to sign him.

And the Independent say that, if he leaves, Solskjaer wants one of Kroos or Varane in return.

Solskjaer has, publicly at least, claimed Pogba will stay at Manchester United saying: "You can't guarantee anything in football but yes I think Paul is going to be here.”

Hazard to stay at Chelsea?

The Blues unveiled their new home kit for next season today - with Hazard modelling their new strip.

"HE STAYSSSSS,” one fan wrote about the announcement.

"I take it as hazard is staying then,” said another.

A third claimed: “So, Hazard is staying..”

"HAZARD NEXT SEASON PLEASE,” another Chelsea fan said.

Man Utd want Chelsea ace

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to sign Callum Hudson-Odoi from Chelsea but Man Utd will not sign big names this summer, Guillem Balague claims.

"What I’m hearing is they want to get players, the best players, of the Premier League away from the top six,” he said.

"And they want young [players] as well. Yes, they’re interested in [Callum] Hudson-Odoi, but not just him.

"Centre-backs are not a priority, it seems, but I think they will get at least one. They just need quality throughout the side.

"They will look for those kind of players who can run, who are strong physically, and got quality.

"They will not go for the bigger names, the biggest names. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not want superstars, so forget about that.

"It’s about getting a very tough squad, mentally and physically, and it will require a few windows at least.”

Hazard to Liverpool on?

Liverpool would sign Eden Hazard in a heartbeat if he’s available for £100m this summer, Reds hero Mark Lawrenson claims.

"It’s not necessarily bridges burned, I just don’t think they need him [Coutinho] back,” Lawrenson told Goal.

"I think Coutinho needs to be the number one player in the team, which is why he has struggled a little bit at Barca.

"If Chelsea suddenly said give us £100m for Eden Hazard, you would take him in a heartbeat. But I think he might be learning Spanish as we speak!”

Jose Mourinho Man Utd dig

Jose Mourinho has aimed a sly dig at Manchester United and chief Ed Woodward by admitting he would have liked similar backing to that of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp at Manchester City and Liverpool.

"I would love to go to a club and be in conditions to do what Jurgen and Pep did,” Mourinho told beIN Sports.

"And when Pep was not happy with the full-backs he had [at City in 2016-17] and in the [next] summer bought four [three] full-backs that he liked.

"When he bought one goalkeeper like Claudio Bravo and was not happy with Claudio Bravo, the next season he bought Ederson.

"When Jurgen is in the club and wins absolutely nothing for three-and-a-half years and he still has the trust, still has the confidence, still has the conditions to try to keep going and going.”

Ozil confirms plans

Mesut Ozil insists he is happy at Arsenal and says he has no issues with manager Unai Emery despite being frozen out at times this season.

"Absolutely. I've got two more years on my contract,” he told Sky Sports when asked if he wants to stay.

"I don't know after that but I've got two years left.”

Asked if he was happy, the German added: “Yes. Why not?

"I’m 30 now, still got years in front of me, it's down to the club as well of course, but I've got two years here - after that I don't know what happens.”

Man Utd £150m spending spree

Man Utd have upped their interest in Joao Felix and Bruno Fernandes, the Evening Standard claim.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to splash the cash this summer to mount a Premier League title charge next season.

And Benfica’s Felix and Fernandes of Sporting top their wishlist this summer.

United are ready to spend £150m on the duo before the start of next season.

Liverpool to sign three

Liverpool hero Mark Lawrenson reckons Jurgen Klopp will sign three players this summer.

"I don’t think you can say that any team is lacking in areas if they get 97 points. They have over-performed,” he told Goal.

"They might need another left-back to cover Andy Robertson, they are alright at centre-back, they are alright at right-back. Maybe a bit more of an attacking midfield player, or a No. 10.

"I don’t think he will sign many players. I wouldn’t expect more than two or three maximum.

"We have also seen with Klopp that he will wait until the right player is available. He just doesn’t like getting players for the sake of it.

"Recruitment now is massive at this level and his recruitment of players has been outstanding.”

Hazard told to leave Chelsea

Eden Hazard should LEAVE Chelsea because he deserves a move to Real Madrid, Glenn Hoddle claims.

"I think Chelsea will get into the Champions League, whether Hazard will be there with them,” Hoddle told TSN.

"I feel it might be the right time for him personally, not for Chelsea or the Premier League, but for him to go to Real Madrid if that offer is there on the table for him.

"He deserves to play in that team. They’ve got a re-build going on as well.

"I personally would love to see him play in the Premier League but I’ve got a feeling he might move.

"Chelsea, at the moment, there’s something missing but without Hazard in the team and all the hope [goes].”

Emery makes Arsenal demand

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is desperate to sign a new centre-half this summer.

The Sun claim Chelsea ace Kurt Zouma, Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire of Leicester top his wishlist.

Zouma has impressed on loan at Everton this season, however, whether he’s in Chelsea’s plans remains to be seen.

Emery will have a transfer budget of around £40m if Arsenal fail to qualify for the Champions League.
