Callum Wilson, Mario Lemina and Victor Lindelof make up the back-page speculation on Wednesday.

What the papers say

The Mirror says Bournemouth expect Callum Wilson to sign a new four-year deal next week to ward off interest from West Ham. The England striker has been targeted as the Hammers look to be losing out to Valencia in the race for Celta Vigo marksman Maxi Gomez.

Manchester United have been given permission to speak to Mario Lemina over a potential move, according to the Express. Lemina, who has said he would be open to leaving Southampton, is said to be wanted by both United and Arsenal.

And United's problems are said to be growing as Victor Lindelof's agent hints the defender wants to join a "great European club", according to The Telegraph. Lindelof's agent has suggested the Swede could be open to a move amid interest from Barcelona.

Bayern Munich remain determined to sign Leroy Sane this summer, according to the Mirror. The Bundesliga champions have so far been scared off by Manchester City's £90million valuation but the 23-year-old Germany winger is still expected to be a high-profile casualty of manager Pep Guardiola's off-season surgery on his title-winning squad.
