Tottenham are leading the race to sign Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon, the Sun says. The 18-year-old has reportedly attracted attention from Manchester United, Paris St Germain and Borussia Dortmund but Mauricio Pochettino's pulling power has given Spurs the edge, the paper adds.

Zinedine Zidane has told Real Madrid to sell Gareth Bale, according to the Independent. The paper claims Madrid are planning major activity this summer, but also need to raise cash and lower the wage bill.

Liverpool are reportedly ready to trigger Julian Brandt's £21.5million release clause. The Mirror reports the Reds will be looking to act fast when the transfer window opens to land the Bayern Leverkusen winger. They could face competition, however, as Real Madrid and Juventus are also said to be interested.

Arsenal are apparently in pole position to sign Barcelona's Samuel Umtiti. The Frenchman has been linked to a move to Manchester United but reports in Italy indicate the Gunners are leading the pack when it comes to securing a summer deal, according to the Daily Star. Roma are also said to be eyeing up the 25-year-old should Kostas Manolas leave the club.

Social media round-up

Players to watch
