City have been silent amid reports they have offered Aston Villa £100m to bring Grealish to the Etihad.

What the papers say

Manchester City will reportedly give up on the possibility of signing Harry Kane if England team-mate Jack Grealish ends up at Manchester City. The Premier League champions have been silent since reports emerged on Friday that they had made a £100million offer for the Aston Villa playmaker and captain, 25, with the Manchester Evening News claiming the move's success would see them abandon their efforts to sign Tottenham striker Kane.

Everton boss Rafael Benitez's plans for the coming campaign apparently do not include Colombia playmaker James Rodriguez. The Liverpool Echo reports the 30-year-old has been told he is free to find a new home, with Rodriguez Everton's highest earner since arriving on a free transfer from Real Madrid in September.

Former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is said to be keen to reunite with Adama Traore at Tottenham. The West Midlands team are yet to receive an offer for the Spain winger, 25, but the Birmingham Mail says they are willing to let him leave for the right price. Spurs may face competition for his signature from Liverpool, Chelsea and Leeds.

RB Leipzig's Ademola Lookman could help strengthen Patrick Vieira's Crystal Palace squad. The Sun reports the side want to bring the 23-year-old English winger to Selhurst Park on a season-long loan, though he is also being monitored by Burnley and Watford following last season's spell at Fulham.
