WHAT THE PAPERS SAY

Manchester United are interested in signing Tottenham left-back DANNY ROSE, according to the Mirror.

United have reportedly turned their attention to signing the England international, despite the 27-year-old currently being sidelined with a knee problem.

Chelsea's own pursuit of a left-sided defender has hit a major roadblock, with the Independent claiming Juventus have ruled out any hope of the Premier League champions signing ALEX SANDRO this summer.

But Antonio Conte could still be close to boosting his back line.

The Telegraph writes the Blues are hoping to sign Paris St Germain right-back SERGE AURIER, while they are looking to join the race for wantaway Southampton defender VIRGIL VAN DIJK.

Van Dijk has handed in a transfer request at St Mary's - and the south-coast club are already lining up a replacement.

The Saints are hoping to sign Middlesbrough defender BEN GIBSON in a £30million deal, according to the Sun.

Stoke hope to sign last season's loanee BRUNO MARTINS INDI, reports the Stoke Sentinel, while L'equipe claims Potters midfielder GIANNELLI IMBULA is closing in on a move to Monaco.
