Friday's papers: Adama Traore, Eric Dier, David Alaba

Moves for Alaba and Traore make headlines on Friday.

What the papers say

Adama Traore, who has forged a key role in Wolves' starting XI, is wanted by Juventus, reports the Daily Mail. The Serie A giants are looking to sign the winger and could offer goalkeeper Mattia Perin and defenders Daniele Rugani and Cristian Romero as an exchange for the 24-year-old, the paper says.

Manchester City could bolster their defence over the summer with the signing of Bayern Munich's David Alaba, according to the Daily Mirror. Manager Pep Guardiola is said to have run the rule over the Austrian left-back.

Tottenham are still confident a deal can be struck with Eric Dier, says the Daily Mail. The north London club and the England international are in discussion over a new deal, with wages reported to be a sticking point.
