Youssoufa Moukoko has thanked Lukasz Piszczek, Emre Can and Julian Brandt for helping to ease his transition into the Borussia Dortmund senior squad.

The 15-year-old forward, who boasts an incredible record of 183 goals in 120 games for Dortmund's youth team, is working with Lucien Favre's first-team group as they prepare for the 2020-21 Bundesliga season.

Regulations in Germany's top flight mean Moukoko will not be able to make his competitive debut until he turns 16 on November 20, but he will be getting up to speed during the intervening period.

"Lukasz Piszczek helped me a lot, but Emre Can and Julian Brandt also support me," he told Bild.

On 35-year-old full-back Piszczek, Moukoko added: "He pulled me straight to the side and said, 'Just have fun, be yourself and don't be afraid with us professionals'."

In the meantime, Moukoko still has ambitions in the youth categories.

"I will use the time until November in the under-19s," he said. "I still want to break the 200-goal mark."

Giovanni Reyna, 17, was a breakthrough teenage star for Dortmund last season.

The son of former USA international Claudio Reyna, the youngster has paid tribute to the role of his late brother Jack in his formative years as a footballer.

Jack died of cancer aged 13 when Giovanni was nine.

"It was Jack who got me excited about football," he told SportBild.

"People always think that I became a footballer because my dad, Claudio, was already a professional.

"But it was my late brother who sparked my passion for football. Without Jack I wouldn't be at BVB today."

Reyna made 15 appearance in the Bundesliga last term and he hailed the guidance given to him by Dortmund's England star Jadon Sancho.

"He tells me that I should be confident and trust my strengths," he explained. "He encourages me when things don't go that way.

"He didn't doubt himself after making mistakes, but just kept going. Jadon's not so good for nothing."

Reyna added: "Jadon's first steps when he starts dribbling are unbelievable - wow! I try to learn from him in every training session, because his development here at BVB is an incentive for me."

Sancho has been heavily linked with a big-money move to Manchester United, even though sporting director Michael Zorc insists the 20-year-old will now remain at Signal Iduna Park for the forthcoming campaign.

Jadon Sancho has been urged by Borussia Dortmund team-mate Emre Can to "grow up" and improve his discipline after a haircut landed him in hot water this week.

Sancho was fined by the German Football League (DFL) for violating social distancing protocols after having a trim at home without wearing a face mask.

The England international called the sanction an "absolute joke" in a tweet before deleting it.

Can, who scored the winner against Hertha Berlin on Saturday, wants to see the 20-year-old show a little more maturity. 

"We know that he just has to be more disciplined in some things, but he knows that himself," Can told Sky.

"He just has to be smarter and grow up with things like that. He can't afford to make such mistakes in the future.

"You have to lead Jadon the right way. He's a great boy, even off the pitch. He doesn't do it on purpose to cause a scandal.

"Maybe he trusts too many other people in some things."

Having scored his first professional hat-trick in last weekend's thrashing of Paderborn, Sancho produced a more low-key display against Hertha as Lucien Favre's side kept their slim Bundesliga title hopes alive.

Joshua Kimmich described his winning goal against Borussia Dortmund as the best of his career and says he was told before the match how Roman Burki often stands off his line.

The Bayern Munich midfielder beat Dortmund keeper Burki with a delightful 20-yard chip to earn a 1-0 win in Tuesday's Klassiker clash at Signal Iduna Park.

With two minutes of a tight first half remaining, Kimmich took a few strides and floated a shot into the top left-corner, with Burki unable to keep it out despite getting fingertips to the ball.

Kimmich has now scored 27 career goals for club and country, the latest of which he rates higher than all the rest given its quality and the magnitude of the game.

"That was the best goal of my career - it was so important," he said, quoted on Bayern's official website. "We were told before the game that Burki often stands off his line."

Dortmund were unable to respond to Kimmich's goal and now have a seven-point deficit to make up on leaders Bayern with only six games to play.

And BVB defender Mats Hummels, who switched between the two clubs last year, admits the title race is as good as over for his side and the rest of the chasing pack.

"Sometimes games are decided by moments of genius. That was the case today," Hummels told Sky Sport Germany.

"I think that all other teams are out of the title race. Now, it's all in the hands of Bayern.

"We just have to hope that they will drop points three times in six games. If there's any chance, we want to be there to take it."

Emre Can, a half-time substitute against Bayern, echoed the thoughts of team-mate Hummels following Dortmund's first home league loss in more than a year.

"We have to be realistic. Bayern are now seven points clear of us," Can said.

"We need to look at ourselves and win the remaining games. If nothing happens, Bayern will win the title."

Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre is not giving up on Marco Reus playing again this season despite reports claiming his 2019-20 campaign is already over.

Reus suffered a groin injury during a DFB-Pokal match in February, and although he was only thought to be facing a month out, the 30-year-old still has not been able to return to full training.

It was reported earlier in the week that Reus will definitely miss next Tuesday's Klassiker against Bayern Munich, and an absence until the end of the season is likely.

Favre, speaking ahead of Saturday's trip to Wolfsburg, refused to openly confirm or contradict those claims, though he did appear hopeful that Reus would be able to feature again this term as Dortmund challenge Bayern for the Bundesliga title.

"He hasn't trained with the team yet," Favre told reporters.

"We hope that he will come back as soon as possible and can help us until the end of the season."

There was positive news with respect to Emre Can and Giovanni Reyna. The midfield pair missed the 4-0 win over Schalke as Dortmund resumed their season last Saturday, and they are due to be involved in team training on Friday.

Dortmund have had to contend with numerous injuries of late, with Axel Witsel still out with a muscular problem and Dan-Axel Zagadou set for a long absence due to a knee ligament injury, but Favre feels such issues were to be expected following the coronavirus-enforced pause.

"We trained first in groups of two, then in groups of four. There is a certain danger," he said. "We all did not train normally and then had to train properly four or five days before a championship game, duels. This is not a big surprise for me."

Paris Saint-Germain did not let a lack of support derail their performance as they defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to seal a 3-2 aggregate win en route to the Champions League quarter-finals.

With Wednesday's clash at Parc des Princes played behind closed doors amid fears over the spread of coronavirus, PSG overturned a 2-1 opening-leg deficit to progress to the last eight for the first time since 2016.

Neymar got Thomas Tuchel's side started in the 28th minute, capping an impressive display with a diving header from point-blank range, before Juan Bernat doubled PSG's tally.

And with Dortmund toiling to claw their way back into proceedings, their frustrations were compounded in the closing stages – Emre Can seeing red for becoming embroiled in an off-field scuffle as Lucien Favre's side dropped out with a whimper.

With thousands of fans making their voices heard outside Parc des Princes, it was Dortmund who went close to a breakthrough against the run of play – Erling Haaland inches away from connecting with Achraf Hakimi's cross.

It was PSG's turn to rue a glorious chance in the 25th minute – Edinson Cavani racing through on goal only for Roman Burki to make a superb save with his right foot.

But Burki was beaten three minutes later, Neymar left unmarked in the six-yard box to head in from Angel Di Maria's corner.

Jadon Sancho tested Keylor Navas as Dortmund looked to respond, yet PSG turned the tie further in their favour on the stroke of half-time when Bernat diverted home.

Di Maria's long-range free-kick had Burki lunging to his right nine minutes after the restart, before Tuchel introduced Kylian Mbappe, who had been a doubt due to a throat infection.

Dortmund substitute Julian Brandt had more of an impact, though his deflected strike onto the roof of the net was the closest the visitors came to keeping themselves in the competition before Can's red card for violent conduct all but ended their slim hopes.

 

What does it mean? PSG end last-16 hoodoo

It has been four years since the Ligue 1 giants made it into the quarters of the Champions League, having succumbed to turnaround defeats to Barcelona and Manchester United in two of the last three campaigns. 

However, now they have completed a comeback of their own, perhaps they are finally ready to launch a real onslaught on the competition.

Neymar's time finally set to come?

With Mbappe only passed fit enough to start on the bench, Neymar – who has suffered untimely injuries at this time in each of his previous two seasons at PSG – came to the fore in style on Wednesday, inspiring the French champions with his header and running the play in general for the home side.

Haaland kept under wraps

There was no doubt that, with his two goals, Haaland was the star of the first leg. However, he was nowhere near as effective this time around, with Dortmund unable to provide their front man with any service as his extraordinary run in the Champions League came to an end.

What's next?

PSG will face Nice in Ligue 1 on Sunday, though of course no fans will be in attendance. Likewise, there will be no crowd at Signal Iduna Park for Saturday's Revierderby between Dortmund and Schalke.

Erling Haaland insisted he still has room for improvement after scoring a stunning Champions League double as Borussia Dortmund beat Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

The January signing's first European goals for Dortmund took his tally in the competition to 10 from seven matches, with eight of those strikes having come for former club Salzburg in this season's group stage.

No player had previously scored 10 Champions League goals in fewer than 11 appearances, while only Kylian Mbappe reached that total at a younger age.

Haaland also became just the fifth player to reach double-figures in his debut campaign in Europe's elite club competition, following in the footsteps of Just Fontaine (10 in 1958-59), Claudio Sulser (11 in 1978-79), Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino (both 10 in 2017-18).

But Haaland was also slightly wasteful before half-time against PSG and is targeting further growth heading into the return leg, where Dortmund will hope to secure a quarter-final berth.

"I know that I have a lot to improve and you saw that today," he told DAZN. "I have to keep working hard.

"We have to keep going. I want to reach far in this competition and work hard and keep going.

"I didn't think too much [after the second goal]. I enjoyed the moment - these nights you live for. It's fantastic.

"We'll see [about scoring in Paris]. I have to keep working hard and get better and then we'll see."

Haaland was slightly frustrated Dortmund had conceded to Neymar, the world's most expensive player briefly equalising before the Norway international's blistering second, as an away goal gives PSG a scarcely deserved foothold in the tie.

Asked if Dortmund played a perfect game, he replied: "No, because we let in a goal. But that's how it is. We have to improve and we'll see what happens in the next game."

Team-mate Emre Can told BT Sport of Haaland: "Of course, he's a great, great footballer and he scores a lot of goals. But he's also a great guy.

"He's a little bit crazy, I think, funny. Hopefully, he'll continue like that."

Emre Can will join Borussia Dortmund permanently from Juventus in July on a deal that runs until 2024, the Bundesliga club have announced.

The 26-year-old Germany international initially moved to Dortmund in January on a loan deal that runs until the end of this campaign.

He scored on his first Bundesliga appearance in a 4-3 loss to Bayer Leverkusen and started last week's 4-0 thrashing of Eintracht Frankfurt.

As part of the loan deal, Dortmund were obliged to buy Can for €25million if "sport results" were achieved and the club have acted swiftly to reach an agreement for that fee just 18 days after the initial move.

"Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement with Italian record champions Juventus over the permanent transfer of Germany international Emre Can," read a statement on Dortmund's website.

"The 26-year-old's loan deal ends in June. As of 1 July, a valid contract between Borussia Dortmund and Can will enter into force and run until 30 June 2024."

Former Bayern Munich and Leverkusen midfielder Can is back playing in Germany for the first time in six years after stints with Liverpool and Juve.

He joined Serie A champions Juve on a four-year deal in July 2018 and made 29 appearances in his debut season under Massimiliano Allegri.

However, Can fell out of favour in Turin under Maurizio Sarri and slipped down the pecking order following the arrivals of Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey.

The writing appeared on the wall when Can was left out of Juve's Champions League squad and he has now sealed a permanent departure.

Emre Can will join Borussia Dortmund permanently from Juventus in July on a deal that runs until 2024, the Bundesliga club have announced.

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland must still convince Lucien Favre of his match fitness despite a sensational start to life in Germany.

Haaland arrived at Signal Iduna Park from RB Salzburg last month, billed as one of the hottest properties in European football, and the teenage striker has certainly not disappointed.

He scored a hat-trick from the bench to inspire a 5-3 comeback win over Augsburg on debut and followed that with a brace in a 5-1 rout of Cologne.

The Norway international was at the double once more on his first start, with Union Berlin dismissed 5-0, although he was a substitute once more for the DFB-Pokal tie at Werder Bremen in midweek.

Naturally, Haaland scored after his introduction, although BVB fell to a 3-2 defeat.

Asked whether he regretted not starting the in-form forward, Favre kept his sights trained on the bigger picture at a Thursday news conference.

"As I said, I am the first one to [know whether to] let him play from the beginning," he said.

"You don't know his fitness like I do. So, we have to be careful. We have to be reasonable.

"Of course, I would like to let him play all games, but we still have to be careful with him sometimes.

"He is 19 years old and I speak about the pre-season and old injuries. We have to be reasonable."

Favre's hand might be forced, however, given his forward line will be without Marco Reus when they travel to face Bayer Leverkusen this weekend. 

"Unfortunately, Marco is injured now. It happened in the last minute. I am very sorry for him," said Favre, with his captain set for a four-week spell on the sidelines due to a muscular complaint that will cause him to miss the Champions League showdown with Paris Saint-Germain on February 18.

"But Marco is still very important and will be important for the team. There are several options how to replace him, but it depends on the system. Today it’s still not decided."

Emre Can, a deadline-day arrival on an initial loan from Juventus, made a substitute cameo against Werder and could make his league debut for Dortmund against old employers Leverkusen.

"We have to see him in training, how he feels. He did not play a lot [at Juventus this season]," Favre added.

"He made a good impression yesterday. The training was very long and intense. He did very well.

"He has to show in training what he is able to do. We know he can play as a defender with a back three but also in the midfield as six or eight, also in a 4-3-3.

"We will see because right now I cannot tell you exactly."

Maurizio Sarri insists his comments suggesting he would prefer to lose to Napoli than anyone else were "twisted" as Juventus fans reacted in anger.

Juve were beaten for just the second time in Serie A this season when Sarri took the defending champions to his old club Napoli, where he spent three years as head coach before leaving for Chelsea in 2018.

Sarri said he was happy for his old team to get three points given they are languishing in 10th place in the table.

Juve supporters were far from pleased with the remarks, but Sarri believes too much has been made of what he considers to be fair comments about a team who helped him to reach "the biggest club in Italy".

"I don't know much about any controversies. It seems strange to me that certain phrases were twisted," he told reporters on Saturday ahead of the league meeting with Fiorentina.

"It seems natural to me that I remain tied to those boys I worked with for three years and who allowed me to get to top clubs like Chelsea and Juventus. There's gratitude because that's where my journey started that led to the biggest club in Italy - Juventus.

"Juve fans were rightly angry because we played badly and we lost."

Juve signed Dejan Kulusevski during the January transfer window but sent him on loan to Parma for the rest of the season, meaning Sarri has no reinforcements for the remainder of 2019-20.

The squad was trimmed further as Mario Mandzukic left for Al Duhail, with Marko Pjaca and Mattia Perin loaned out and Emre Can sent to Borussia Dortmund on an initial loan with an obligation to buy.

Can had been furious to be left out of Juve's bloated Champions League squad and started just twice in Serie A under Sarri, who considers it normal for good players to find game time difficult at top clubs.

"These are normal situations," he said. "I had a group of 27 players: if among them there are one or two who have difficulty getting into the team, that's normal. It doesn't take away from his qualities.

"I didn't ask for anything in the summer or in January. The squad is strong. I have to adapt to the characteristics of the squad. I can't think of revolutionising a whole group of players."

Barcelona signed Brazilian midfielder Matheus Fernandes and Portuguese forward Francisco Trincao on transfer deadline day, but both players must wait for their chance to shine at Camp Nou.

Fernandes will join Quique Setien's squad from Palmeiras in July after a €10million package was agreed for the 21-year-old, who has played for the Brazil Under-20 team.

Braga accepted a €31m offer from Barca for 20-year-old forward Trincao, and he will also formally join the Catalan club's ranks at the end of the season.

Both players have agreed five-year contracts, the Blaugrana announced, with Fernandes' contract including a €300m buy-out clause and Trincao's deal showing a €500m clause.

Braga will take Barca's 18-year-old striker Abel Ruiz on loan until the end of the season and then make the deal permanent for €8m, with the LaLiga club having a buy-back option.

Barca were not the only Spanish club busy in the market though, with Celta Vigo signing striker Fyodor Smolov on loan from Lokomotiv Moscow until the end of the season.

Atletico Madrid re-signed Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco, almost two years after he left to join Chinese side Dalian Yifang. The 26-year-old joined until the end of the season on loan.
 

STAYING PUT

Deadline day was as notable for the deals that looked to have fallen through as those that were completed.

Paris Saint-Germain ruled out allowing Edinson Cavani to leave, as a host of clubs fancied taking the Uruguayan off their hands, while Chelsea refused to let France striker Olivier Giroud depart Stamford Bridge.

Tottenham were among the clubs keen on Giroud, but Jose Mourinho looked like missing out on the striker he wanted to strengthen a front-line depleted by the loss of injured England captain Harry Kane.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane said Gareth Bale would not be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

Manchester United remained linked with Bournemouth forward Joshua King, but time was running out for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to add new faces to his Old Trafford squad.

United made one signing, but it was a low-profile deal as England Under-20 goalkeeper Nathan Bishop arrived from third-tier Southend United.

Arsenal brought in defender Cedric Soares on loan from Southampton.

In Scotland, champions Celtic shipped out Scotland international Lewis Morgan to Major League Soccer side Inter Miami, who are part-owned by David Beckham.

Belgian side Genk allowed attacking midfielder Ianis Hagi, son of Romanian great Gheorghe Hagi, to join Scottish giants Rangers on loan.
 

KOUAME, DUNCAN IN

Serie A transfer activity was dominated by Fiorentina, who signed Ivorian forward Christian Kouame from Genoa, initially on loan. The deal will be made permanent at the end of the season.

They also brought in Ghanaian midfielder Alfred Duncan from Sassuolo in a similar deal, a loan with an obligation to buy.

Reports in Italy said Kevin-Prince Boateng was set to leave Fiorentina among the incomings, with Besiktas his destination. Turkish giants Besiktas also snapped up 18-year-old Croatian midfielder Ajdin Hasic from Dinamo Zagreb on permanent terms.

Atalanta agreed a loan deal with Nice, acquiring defender Adrien Tameze from the Ligue 1 outfit with a purchase option.

World Cup winner Steven Nzonzi cut short a season-long loan from Roma to Galatasaray, returning to his French homeland with Rennes on a six-month loan with an option for a further year.
 

HERTHA BUSY

In the Bundesliga, Emre Can left Juventus for Borussia Dortmund on Friday evening, initially on loan until the end of the campaign but with a €25m fee agreed for a potential permanent transfer.

Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin followed up Thursday's signing of Krzysztof Piatek by prising 20-year-old Brazilian winger Matheus Cunha from table-toppers RB Leipzig, for whom he scored nine goals in 52 games.

Hertha managing director Michael Preetz said on the club's website: "We wanted to increase the quantity and improve the quality up front, which we have been able to do with the Piatek and Cunha transfers."

Leipzig also offloaded Austrian midfielder Stefan Ilsanker to Eintracht Frankfurt. He spent four-and-a-half years at Leipzig, joining them in the second tier.

Werder Bremen signed striker Davie Selke on an 18-month loan from Hertha, the 25-year-old returning to the club where he began his professional career.

Borussia Dortmund have completed the signing of Emre Can from Juventus on loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent move.

Germany international Can joined Juve in 2018 after his contract with Liverpool expired, but has been short of match action this season.

The 26-year-old has made just eight Serie A appearances under Maurizio Sarri and was left out of the Turin giants' Champions League squad.

Can on Friday completed a return to the Bundesliga with Dortmund, initially on loan – for a fee of  €1,000,000 – and the transfer will become permanent if agreed parameters are met.

Dortmund could pay Juve €25million, over the course of three financial years, to keep the former Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich man.

"In Can we get a German national player who can be used across multiple systems in defence as well as in central midfield. A player who brings in his technique as well as his technique and has a strong will to win," said Dortmund's sporting director Michael Zorc on the club's official website.

"I think the team has great potential and can win something," added Can. "I am convinced that I can help them and can't wait to play in front of these fans for whom Borussia Dortmund is known all over the world for the first time."

Can becomes Dortmund's second major addition of the January window, after the club brought in striker Erling Haaland, who has scored five goals in his two Bundesliga appearances.

Haaland's stunning start allowed Dortmund to free up funds for the Can move by selling Paco Alcacer to Villarreal on Thursday, while winger Jacob Bruun Larsen has also left for Hoffenheim.

Manchester United look set to continue scrambling for strikers throughout deadline day.

While Bruno Fernandes has finally arrived, the Red Devils were reportedly less successful in a surprise bid to bring Bournemouth forward Joshua King back to Old Trafford.

Now, with the countdown well and truly on, a Tottenham target appears to have been removed from United's radar.

 

TOP STORY - UNITED PASS ON WILLIAN JOSE

Though still without Marcus Rashford, United have rejected the chance to sign Willian Jose on loan, according to Sky Sports.

Real Sociedad reportedly failed to gain a bite after offering the Brazilian striker to the Champions League aspirants amid negotiations with another Premier League club in Tottenham.

Spurs earlier looked to be in pole position to sign the 28-year-old permanently, but may now have to settle for a temporary deal as discussions continue.

The prospect of a bolstering their attack following Rashford's injury would have appealed to United, who reportedly failed in an attempt to capture Cherries star King.

The Telegraph claims Eddie Howe's insistence on keeping the Norwegian denied Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the chance to reunite with the player he coached while in charge of United's reserve side.

 

ROUND-UP

- Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain will keep Edinson Cavani unless LaLiga side Atletico Madrid improve from €15million to €20m, according to ESPN reporter Julien Laurens.

- Juventus midfielder Emre Can will join Borussia Dortmund on loan with an obligation for the Bundesliga club to buy for €30m, reports Goal.

- Manchester City are set to beat Arsenal, Barcelona and Bayer Leverkusen to Coritiba's 17-year-old Brazilian right-back Yan Couto, claims Mundo Deportivo. 

- Ricardo Rodriguez is out the door and Milan might have settled on a shock replacement. Sky Sports suggests the Rossoneri have agreed an €11.9m (£10m) deal to take left-back Antonee Robinson from Championship outfit Wigan Athletic. The Serie A side are also said to be on the cusp of signing Anderlecht youngster Alexis Saelemaekers.

- Inter and Lazio are competing to secure Chelsea centre-forward Olivier Giroud before the transfer window shuts, claims Sky Sport Italia. 

Borussia Dortmund have let Paco Alcacer depart for Villarreal and are in talks with Juventus midfielder Emre Can about a potential move.

Villarreal announced the arrival of Alcacer on Thursday, with the former Barcelona striker signing a five-and-a-half-year deal and reportedly commanding a club-record fee of €23million.

The 26-year-old Spain international enjoyed a stunning first season with Dortmund, scoring 18 goals in 26 Bundesliga appearances.

However, he has made just nine starts in all competitions under Lucien Favre this season and struggled with injuries, while the arrival of Erling Haaland from Salzburg led to increased competition for minutes.

Alcacer - linked with former club Valencia earlier in the window - has consequently returned to Spain with Villarreal, who are eighth in LaLiga and booked a place in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals on Wednesday.

It may not be the last of Dortmund's activity in the transfer window, with Can close to arriving from Juve.

Germany international Can was left out of the Bianconeri's Champions League squad this season and has made just eight appearances in all competitions, two of which have come from the start.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told a news conference on Thursday: "Well, the transfer window isn't open much longer and I don't like to provide any updates until something is final.

"We are talking with the player, this is no secret. But a decision hasn't been made yet."

The time might have come for Chelsea to cash in on one of their longest and most loyal servants.

According to reports, LaLiga giants Barcelona are eager to take winger Willian to Camp Nou before the January transfer window closes on Friday.

The experienced Brazilian has been with Chelsea since 2013, but his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

 

TOP STORY - BARCA WANT WILLIAN

Barcelona will test Chelsea's resolve with a late €23.6million (£20m) offer for Willian, Sky Sports have reported.

The Blaugrana are said to be are "long-term admirers" of the 31-year-old and hope to have him on board for the remainder of their title battle against Real Madrid.

Willian could leave Stamford Bridge on a free at the end of June if Chelsea choose not to cash in now.

Frank Lampard last month said contract talks were ongoing with the former Shakhtar Donetsk attacker, but he has not yet agreed a new deal.

 

ROUND-UP

- News of Barca's approach comes amid suggestions they have had an eye-watering €100m (£85m) offer for Richarlison rejected by Everton, rumours the Mirror indicates have been laughed off at Goodison Park.

- Chelsea, however, could be preparing their Willian replacement. According to the Daily Mail, the Premier League top-four aspirants are looking to sign 32-year-old Napoli forward Dries Mertens for a cut-price £6m fee.

- Barca, meanwhile, are trying to find a new home for Philippe Coutinho after learning Bayern Munich will not activate their €120m option to buy the on-loan playmaker, say Catalunya Radio.

- England international Danny Rose will spend the remainder of the season at Newcastle United after Tottenham accepted a £2m loan fee for the left-back, claim the Guardian.

- Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund must improve their bid from €22m to €30m to convince Serie A champions Juventus to part with midfielder Emre Can, claim CalcioMercato.
