    GIVE ME SOME OF MAK

    West Ham have made an offer to sign 29-year-old defender Nikola Maksimovic, according to reports.

    Corriere Dello Sport journalist Antonio Giordano is reporting that the Hammers, alongside a host of European clubs, are interested in the free agent.

    Antonio Giordano, as quoted via Area Napoli, said: "Napoli are definitely looking for one or two defenders, with Maksimovic leaving.

    "Would he like to stay? I think it’s his wish and perhaps he also carries with him the regret of not having accepted the renewal a year ago. 

    "He has had offers from Betis, Sevilla, West Ham and Crystal Palace but hasn’t decided. I guess he’s waiting for Napoli to think again."

    GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS

    Aston Villa are reportedly willing to pay £40million for Chelsea outcast Tammy Abraham.

    The Mirror claims Dean Smith is eager to be reunited with the striker following his loan at Villa Park.

    And Chelsea are ready to sell as Abraham is not in Thomas Tuchel’s plans.

    West Ham and Crystal Palace are also interested but cannot afford the £40m fee, putting Villa in pole position.

    Meanwhile, Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool are among those keen on Italy international Andrea Belotti.

    The Torino forward has impressed as a sub at the Euros.

    And Tuttosport claims the Premier League trio are eyeing Belotti ahead of potential bids this summer.

    AC Milan, Roma, Napoli and Fiorentina are also keen on snapping up the striker.

    Finally, Billy Gilmour is reportedly on the brink of a loan move to Norwich.

    Fabrizio Romano claims talks are at an advanced stage with Chelsea.

    And Gilmour will link up with the newly-promoted Canaries once he has finished self isolating, having tested positive for Covid during the Euros.

    PAT IS BACK

    Crystal Palace are on the verge of appointing Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira as their new manager.

    Roy Hodgson left Selhurst Park at the end of last season with the squad tipped for a huge summer rebuild.

    Former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre had looked all set to take over at Selhurst Park until a last-minute change of heart last week. 

    There was hope the Swiss could be convinced to change his mind again over the weekend, but now the focus has been switched back to previous target Vieira.

    ON THE FENCE

    Rafa Benitez’s move to Everton is under threat from a last-minute intervention from Fenerbahce.

    The Turkish giants have re-opened talks with the Benitez camp just when it seemed the former Liverpool boss was certain to take charge of their Merseyside rivals.

    Benitez was supposed to be confirmed as Everton manager on Tuesday but an apparent delay has left the door open for Fenerbahce.

    Sources claim the Spaniard is attracted by the challenge of trying to revive the Istanbul club that has won a record 28 Turkish championships – but none since 2013-14.

    GUNNS BLAZING

    Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly set to battle it out for Inter Milan prospect Martin Satriano.

    The sworn North London enemies are said to be part of several clubs who are pursuing the 20-year-old whizkid.

    He's caught the attention of the Premier League giants with a string of impressive displays for Inter's Youth team in the Primavera 1 last season.

    According to the Daily Mail, the Serie A side could be forced to sell the striker – who scored 14 goals and provided eight assists in 25 games – due to financial woes.

    JA-DON AND DUSTED

    Man Utd are reportedly close to finally agreeing a £77.5million deal for top target Jadon Sancho.

    German outlet Sport1 claim the Red Devils have had their third official bid for the England star accepted by Borussia Dortmund.

    The report adds that Die Schwarzgelben's CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has had good talks with United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over the past few days.

    All that is left for the two sides to agree is any potential add-ons and instalments of the fee but that is not thought to be an issue.

    AOUAR BLIMEY

    Spurs have joined the race for Arsenal target Houssem Aouar, according to reports.

    Arsenal wanted to sign Aouar last summer, but weren't willing to match Lyon's £55million asking price.

    But after the Ligue 1 side failed to qualify for the Champions League, he could be available this time around for just £20m, with a £100,000-a-week contract being readied.

    Unfortunately for the Gunners, however, the Mirror says rivals Spurs are entering the race.

    And he also played in the Austrian Bundesliga.

    As a manager in Austria, he also enjoyed some success – leading TSV Hartberg to the Europa League qualifying phase.

    PERFECT MOVE

    Former Leeds striker Noel Whelan believes that Ben White is perfect for Arsenal.

    And he is the type of player that the Gunners have been missing all along.

    Speaking to Football Insider, he said: “I think the international cap has really pushed his value up. 

    “I called it when he first came to Leeds that he’d be playing international football in two, three years. 

    “With the style of play, he’s a centre-back that is a modern-day centre-back. The one thing Arsenal have been missing is that playmaker from the back, somebody with that bit of pace. 

    “He ticks every box for me, Ben White, hence why we were priced out of him. We knew he was going to be a star, a big player playing international football. 

    “He does fit Arsenal down to a tee, I’ll be honest with you. If it wasn’t going to be Leeds, I think Ben White going to Arsenal, that is the style of player that he is now. 

    “In my eyes, that background of Arsenal, how they play the game, there’s no doubt about it, they need a rebuild at the back, especially in that centre-half area.”

    ‘CAN’T SEE IT HAPPENING’

    Jamie O’Hara has weighed in on Aston Villa’s pursuit of Arsenal ace Emile Smith Rowe.

    The Villans have seen two bids worth £25m and £30m rejected, and seem undeterred by Arsenal’s strong stance.

    But O’Hara doesn’t see the deal happening.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “I can’t see them selling him for £30 million, but money talks. 

    “Everyone knows that. If they get the right bid eventually, they will consider it. I don’t think that the fans will be very happy.”

    He added: “I can’t see it happening, if I am honest.”

    AND HE'S GONE

    West Ham are willing to sell big-money signing Felipe Anderson, according to reports.

    And a return to his former club Lazio is looking more and more likely.

    Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri – now Lazio boss – has given the green light for Anderson to return to Italy, according to Corriere dello Sport.

    West Ham are willing to let the Brazilian return to Italy for as little as £9m.
