6.15pm UPDATE: Celtic transfer talked up

Celtic target David Turnbull has been urged to quit Motherwell for Parkhead by Hoops captain Scott Brown.

“It would be a great place for him to come, learn, play in front of 60,000 fans, win trophies and play in the Champions League,” Brown said.

“I think David would be fantastic and it would be the right club to come to given how we develop players.

“Look at myself, James Forrest, Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney all coming through. We are all Scottish lads.

“We have had fantastic coaches all the way through, learned under great managers and we have now got a great manager [in Neil Lennon].”

6.05pm UPDATE: Tottenham scrap Bruno Fernandes plan

Tottenham have decided not to pursue a deal for Bruno Fernandes despite Mauricio Pochettino wanting midfield reinforcements.

Fernandes’ goalscoring exploits for Sporting Lisbon last season put him on the wish lists of Europe’s top clubs.

Tottenham had explored the possibility of signing the Portugal international, but the Daily Star claim their interest has subsided.

Instead, Spurs are going to prioritise bringing Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele and Real Betis’ Giovani Lo Celso to the Premier League.

5.50pm UPDATE: Unai Emery to sanction two Arsenal exits

Arsenal are keen to find buyers for Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi before the start of next season, it has been claimed.

Ozil has tailed off since making a bright start to life at the Emirates and the 2018/19 campaign was another in which he failed to impress.

His German countryman Mustafi has also drawn the ire of fans for his consistently below-par performances in the heart of Arsenal’s defence.

The London Evening Standard reckon Gunners manager Unai Emery is happy to sell the pair if opportunities to do so emerge this summer.

5.20pm UPDATE: Chelsea make Willian decision

Chelsea are not planning to buckle after receiving bids for Willian from both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.

Willian has been lined up for a move to Spain, which would see him follow in the footsteps of former team-mate Eden Hazard.

Atletico and Barcelona have responded to Real Madrid’s capture of Hazard from Chelsea by targeting Willian.

The Daily Mirror, however, reckon Chelsea are hoping two tie Willian down to a new two-year contract having fielded a pair of £35m offers.

4.50pm UPDATE: Kylian Mbappe drops Liverpool hint

Liverpool fans have been sent into a frenzy after Kylian Mbappe dropped another signal he may be up for a move to Anfield.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was snapped with Reds shareholder LeBron James over the weekend as he enjoys a trip to the USA.

And his activity on Instagram off the back of that meeting has been taken as a clue that he wants to head to Liverpool.

Mbappe has followed Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, as well as current stars Mohamed Salah and Fabinho, leaving supporters dreaming a deal in on the cards.

4.20pm UPDATE: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to swap Arsenal for Man Utd?

Manchester United want to add Arsenal hotshot Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to their attacking department, claims talkSPORT host Andy Goldstein.

“I’ve got someone on the inside, not at United by the way, someone on the inside who every so often would tell me transfer gossip,” Goldstein said on Monday night.

“I would say he has a hit-ratio of about, quite high, 75-25. He’s told me quite a few that have happened. Not just at United but other clubs as well.

“He told me about Anthony Martial, which I tweeted I think two days before United even approached. It was one of them ‘how do you know?’, one of those.

“He has told me that United are interested in Aubameyang. He’s got two years left on his deal, he is 29 years old, he is the finished article. United did something similar with [Robin] van Persie, Romelu Lukaku isn’t doing it for Solskjaer, I’m led to believe.”
