What the papers say

Newcastle’s are reportedly looking to boost their attack for next season. The Telegraph claims Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin and West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, both 27, are on the club’s radar.

But Eddie Howe’s side could be facing a fight to keep hold of Alexander Isak amid links with Arsenal. The Mirror reports Newcastle want close to £200million for the 24-year-old Sweden striker.

Thomas Tuchel, fresh from leaving Bayern Munich, is leading the race to take over as manager of Manchester United if Erik ten Hag is sacked, according to the Guardian. The Manchester Evening News says Kieran McKenna is open to taking over at Old Trafford, although the Times reports Brighton are confident of beating Chelsea to hire the Ipswich boss.

Jack Grealish could be on his way out of Manchester City, according to the Sun. Bayern Munich are said to be targeting the 28-year-old England midfielder.
