A host of Premier League clubs are set to battle for the signature of Real Madrid's Isco after the club are prepared to listen to offers in the region of €32m for the Spanish international.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United are all keeping a close eye on proceedings, and the Mirror reports that Real Madrid will demand €32m for the playmaker.

The 23-year-old has had a difficult season and fallen out of favour, but Real were keen for him to stay and progress under new boss Zinedine Zidane.

Former Manchester United player Paul Pogba continues to be linked with a Premier League return and The Express reports that Chelsea are planning an audacious move for the Juventus midfielder.

The Blues are reportedly weighing up a move that would see defensive lynchpin Nemanja Matic move to the Serie A club in cash-plus-player deal.

The Mirror say United will step-up their interest in Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez after contract talks with the club have stalled, while The Telegraph speculates thart Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will get at least €90m to spend in the summer, with Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Watford forward Odion Ighalo, and Leicester City midfielder N'Golo Kante among the targets on his list.
