Lingard, Vestergaard and Garcia all feature in the papers on Thursday.

What the papers say

West Ham will be forced to pay north of £30million to land Jesse Lingard, the Daily Mirror says. Lingard has been on loan with the Hammers, scoring six times in eight games since his temporary move from Manchester United, with David Moyes said to be keen on making the deal permanent.

Southampton will face a struggle to keep hold of Jannik Vestergaard when the transfer window reopens, writes the Daily Express. The paper says Tottenham will look to make a move for the £18m-rated centre-back.

Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea will do battle for the signature of Hakan Calhanoglu, according to The Sun. The AC Milan midfielder will leave the Serie A outfit at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Ibrahima Konate no longer features on Liverpool's transfer wish list, with the Anfield outfit telling RB Leipzig they will not be pursuing a deal, writes the Daily Express.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp's side will be up against Chelsea for the signature of Ajax midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, the Express says.
