    The pair have enjoyed going deep-sea diving and swimming with dolphins.

    Last week, Wanda shared their experience on a safari – checking out zebras, elephants and many more animals.

    Sticking with the theme of the holiday, Nara showed off her leopard-print swimsuit whilst diving off the coast of Zanzibar.

    RUN FOR KOVA

    Chelsea and Croatia ace Mateo Kovacic believes the midfield battle will be key during their clash against England on Sunday.

    He said: “I see the midfield as the main topic here. England are very good in terms of attacking, as are we, so it’s two pretty big teams and it’s gonna be a tough team in terms of the midfield.

    “They have an excellent midfield. [Mason] Mount is in excellent form. [Declan] Rice as well in West Ham, and [Jordan] Henderson. They have a lot of quality there but so have we – we have excellence there.

    “So it’s going to be a tough match, a lot of fights in the midfield, but we’re ready for that. We all know what kind of match we have ahead of us.

    “We’re preparing and we are for every match and we’re going to do our best and give our all.”

    TELLI VISION

    Arsenal are keeping tabs on Italy and Sassuolo's Manuel Locatelli at Euro 2020, according to reports.

    The midfielder was a standout performer for Sassuolo in Serie A, helping them to an eighth-placed finish.

    It earned him a place in Roberto Mancini’s 26-man squad for the delayed European Championships, which kicked off with Italy beating 3-0.

    Locatelli started in a three-man midfield, partnering Chelsea's Jorginho and Nicolo Barella of Inter Milan.

    And according to Sky Italia, Arsenal could have been watching with keen interest after targeting the 23-year-old.

    Manchester City, PSG, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are also among the clubs interested in the Italian.

    Sassuolo are reluctant to sell such a key part of their side, but it is believed an offer of £34million would be enough to convince them into a deal.

    TRIP NOT IT

    Man Utd legend Rio Ferdinand has told his former club NOT to sign England right-back Kieran Trippier.

    Ferdinand, 42, believes that the LaLiga winner doesn't fit the profile of right-back that Man Utd should be looking to sign this summer.

    But admits that he sees the quality the 30-year-old has and what he brings to the table.

    Speaking to Metro, he said: "I don’t think they’d buy someone to come in and play [every week], I think whoever’s coming in there is going to be playing backup.

    "They spent £50m on Wan-Bissaka, not to be a backup or No2. He [Trippier] wouldn’t be my choice if I’m honest, but I see the qualities he has.

    "But Trippier definitely wouldn’t be my choice in terms of the profile of player that I’d be bringing in to play as a No2 right-back."

    TIM FOR A CHANGE?

    Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing up a shock move for Chelsea forward Timo Werner.

    Despite impressing under Thomas Tuchel, the German has struggled for goals having just scored just six times in the Premier League.

    According to Fichajes, Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of the ex-RB Leipzig.

    The Italian is said to have spoken about Werner to the Real board as he looks to bring in players this summer.

    It has been claimed that Chelsea would be open to selling Werner if they receive a substantial offer.

    NAI BOTHER

    Villarreal boss Unai Emery has purchased a controlling stake in Real Union – the club his father and grandfather both played for.

    The ex-Arsenal boss, 49, has long been rumoured to take control of the LaLiga founding club that has fallen on hard times in recent years.

    Negotiations first started between Emery and third-tier outfit Union last year, only for the coronavirus pandemic to put a temporary halt to talks.

    Emery was joined by his brother Igor as well as his lawyer Jose Reta as the Union ownership changed hands.

    It remains to be seen what plans the Spanish gaffer has for Union, who have suffered from economic difficulties in recent years.

    DOR CLOSED

    Chelsea are 'unlikely' to sign Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland this summer.

    Speaking on Sky Sports Transfer Centre, German journalist Rahpael Honigstein said: "There is a possibility but it’s unlikely at this point because the price tag is so big.

    “There is also a huge wage bill implication for whoever gets Haaland. They’d have to smash their wage bill and I think a lot of clubs are wary [of that].

    “Haaland is available next season for a fairly reasonable 75m euros – that’s not official but it’s a pretty open secret.

    “Whatever happens this season, it would really have to force Dortmund’s hand in a way that they can’t say no.

    "I think that could be even beyond the wealthiest clubs in Europe this summer.”

    THIS IS EUR MOMENT

    SOL CAMPBELL EXCLUSIVE – I’ve never felt more cheated than after my last England game at a Euros.

    That’s why I urge Gareth  Southgate’s squad to be themselves and leave nothing behind —  because they may never be in this position again.

    Having my extra-time winner against Portugal in Lisbon in 2004 wrongly disallowed was the most frustrating moment of my career.

    It was the second time it had happened to me, after the game against Argentina at the 1998 World Cup.

    In Saint-Etienne the referee said there was a foul by Alan Shearer before I headed it in.

    WHAT ZIYECH?

    AC Milan reportedly remain keen to bring Hakim Ziyech to the San Siro next season.

    The Chelsea playmaker could be on the move after just one season at Stamford Bridge.

    According to Tuttosport, the Morocco international could be available on loan.

    Though it has been claimed that it would be difficult for the Serie A side to secure his services.

    LONDON CALLING

    Arsenal have reportedly contacted Man Utd over a possible move to sign Donny van de Beek.

    Mikel Arteta is in the market to sign a new midfielder with the likes of Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira all likely to leave.

    And with Van de Beek struggling for game time at Old Trafford, it has been said that the Gunners would be keen to lure him to North London.

    According to 90min, Arsenal have been in touch with the Red Devils to see if they would be prepared to part ways with him.

    And they have requested United to keep them updated on his situation at the club.

    GUNNER JOIN?

    Arsenal are reportedly stepping up their interest in Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma.

    The Seagulls ace is a know Gunners fan, and has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates, as well as to Leicester in recent days.

    But according to 90min, the Mali international isn't keen on a move so far up north.

    And the news outlet states that Arsenal are looking to strengthen their interest in the ex-Lille ace.

    Arsenal are also understood to be eyeing up a move to bring his team-mate Ben White to Arsenal.

    LION IN BED

    There’s just one thing Mason Mount doesn’t enjoy about being at a major tournament with best friend Declan Rice – the early morning wake-up call.

    Mount and West Ham star Rice, mates since they were at the Chelsea Academy together, have rooms next to each other at England’s St George’s Park headquarters.

    Mount said: “He is there next door and every time he wakes up, he wakes up earlier than me and he tries to knock on my door and wake me up to go to breakfast every morning.

    “I might have to move a couple of doors down so I’m not right next to him.

    “To have my best mate with me and to go through this experience with him and obviously all of the other boys as well, it means a lot.

    “It’s something that is very special to us and that we’ll remember for a long time.”

    FAIL OF ROM

    Former Man Utd striker Romelu Lukaku has described his hapless spell at Chelsea as a 'failure' amid reports suggesting he is targeted by his former club.

    Lukaku enjoyed a stunning season at Inter Milan as he led the Serie A giants to their first Scudetto in 11 years with 24 goals in 36 league appearances.

    The Belgian star has also expressed his desire to stay at Inter despite their financial difficulties.

    Lukaku told HLN when asked to choose between his current employers and the Blues: "Inter. Inter. I have won a title with Inter.

    "That was a childhood dream too. At one team I had success, at the other one it was a failure."

    SAUL OVER IT

    Chelsea are reportedly ready to rival Manchester United in the chase for Saul Niguez as Atletico Madrid lower their asking price to £68million.

    The Premier League pair are joined by PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich in tracking the highly rated midfielder.

    He is highly rated at Atletico, but due to financial strains amid the coronavirus pandemic, they are open to selling him.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, Niguez has release clause of £130m with his contract expiring in 2016.

    But Atletico will listen to offers of around £68m and Juventus are said to be the most interested.

    FOOTBALL ROUND-UP

    England squad defenders Ben White and Kieran Tripper are 'Big Six' targets.

    Brighton powerhouse White has shot up the list of options for Arsenal but could cost at least £40million.

    And the Gunners have also been linked with Atletico Madrid right-back Tripper, although Manchester United are said to have made the first move with a £10m bid.

    United are thought to be edging closer to a deal worth around £91m for Borussia Dortmund's England wideman Jadon Sancho.

    And Real Madrid's France centre-back Raphael Varane, long monitored by Old Trafford chiefs, could be available for around £52million this summer as he enters the final year of his contract.

    It's also suggested Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski could finally be open to leaving the German champions

    Inter Milan legend Wesley Sneijder has urged Ajax keeper Andre Onana NOT to join Arsenal – as he could do better by moving to the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona.

    Spurs' ex-england left-back Danny Rose is tipped to sign for newly-promoted Watford.

    And relegated Fulham have rejected a £16million bid from Dynamo Moscow for frontman Aleksandar Mitrovic.

    CHELSEA'S ANTONIO-GO?

    Chelsea ace Antonio Rudiger is considering leaving next year as a free agent unless he is offered a better deal.

    Rudiger joined the Blues from Roma in 2017 and quickly turned into one of the team's key figures in defence but his current contract runs out on June 2022.

    According to The Athletic, the star centre-back is in no rush to discuss his future at Stamford Bridge because he wishes to focus on Euro 2020 where he represents Germany.

    But the 28-year-old also understands that whatever contract he signs next will probably be his career's last big one.

    Therefore, the Germany international wants a four-year deal that would make him one of Chelsea's top 10 earners.

    Rudiger is currently outside the top 10 even though he has played a major role in the Blues' recent success.

    FULHAM REJECT £16m MITROVIC BID

    Fulham have rejected a £16million bid from Dynamo Moscow for striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

    The Cottagers insist the Serbian record goalscorer, 26, is not for sale this summer.

    Owner Shahid Khan and son Tony want to keep Mitrovic in West London in a bid to fire them straight back to the Premier League after relegation.

    But the ex-Newcastle ace is keen to leave Craven Cottage, having started just 13 league games last term.

    He has been largely overlooked by boss Scott Parker, who has often preferred to use winger Ivan Cavaleiro as a lone striker.

    There have been suggestions Mitrovic would want to leave should Parker stay but Fulham bigwigs hope that is not the case.

    The Serbian star played a key role in Parker’s play-off winning side last year, nabbing the Championship Golden Boot after netting 26 goals.

    ‘ONANA TOO GOOD FOR GUNNERS’

    Ajax star Andre Onana has been advised to snub Arsenal in the summer transfer window… because he is made for a “top” club.

    Onana has been linked with a move to the Gunners as manager Mikel Arteta is looking to bolster his goalkeeping options ahead of next season.

    However, Inter Milan legend Wesley Sneijder has advised the 25-year-old to ignore the north Londoners’ advances because they have “slipped in recent years”.

    Sneijder also claims the shot-stopper is made for the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

    The Netherlands great told Voetbal International Live: “I expect him to leave.

    “I think he is a great goalkeeper. European top? Yes, certainly.

    “I’d rather not see him at Arsenal. It’s a fantastic club, but it has slipped in recent years. I’d rather see him play at Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.”

    ROSE 'OFF TO WATFORD'

    Danny Rose will reportedly end his Tottenham hell by signing for Watford.

    The defender has been out in the cold at Spurs but is poised to sign for the newly-promoted Premier League side.

    Rose left Spurs this summer and, according to The Athletic, has agreed to join Watford on a free transfer following their promotion from the Championship.

    The Hornets have tried to sign Rose previously with a £14million offer turned down back in 2019.

    But the 30-year-old's exit from Spurs has opened the door again and they have reportedly agreed a deal to bring him in.

    Rose started off his career with a short loan spell at Vicarage Road, playing seven games for Watford in 2009.

    Rose made 214 appearances for Spurs and has won 29 caps for England.

    CATCHER OF THE RY

    Arsenal are looking to snap up goalkeeper Mat Ryan from Brighton.

    The 29-year-old joined the Seagulls from Valencia back in 2017 but his five-year stint on the South Coast looks likely to end this summer.

    Australian international Ryan spent the second half of the last campaign on loan with the Gunners.

    And the childhood Arsenal fan even got to play three times for them in the Premier League in the absence of Bernd Leno.

    Now boss Mikel Arteta is keen on bringing him back to the Emirates permanently.

    That is according to Sky Sports, but the North London side will face competition for his signature.

    They claim clubs from both Spain and France are also interested in signing Ryan.

    The ace began last term as No1 at Brighton but was axed for a goalless draw at Fulham and failed to earn a recall.

    Dortmund burst Utd Ballon

    Borussia Dortmund have reportedly rejected Manchester United’s proposed Ballon d’Or clause in any deal for Jadon Sancho.

    SunSport revealed this week that the Red Devils have agreed personal terms with the England winger, worth £350,000-a-week over five years.

    Borussia Dortmund are insisting United increase their offer of £61million to £78m, with a further £10m in add-ons, but this is expected to happen.

    United expect the deal to go through smoothly after a summer of wrangling last year when they refused to meet the German club’s £110m price.

    According to the Athletic, the last part of the transfer is largely down to bonuses with Dortmund keen on realistically achievable add-ons.

    The Bundesliga giants are said to be seeking instalments that are based on club income via team success rather than individual awards.

    That has caused Dortmund to reject United’s Ballon d’Or clause that would have been triggered if Sancho finished in the top three in the annual gong.

    ‘GUNNERS AND UTD IN FOR TRIPPIER’

    Manchester United are trying to seal a cheap transfer for Kieran Trippier – but reportedly had a £10million opening bid rejected.

    Trippier played 35 times last season for Atletico, including 28 in the league as Diego Simeone’s side won LaLiga

    It is understood the ex-Spurs man, originally from Bury, is keen on the move to Old Trafford and is even looking at houses in the area.

    But according to Mundo Deportivo, their first offer was a paltry £10m – half the price Atletico Madrid paid for him two years ago.

    The Spanish giants immediately turned it down.

    And the report adds Atleti have told United they must stump up his £35m release clause to have any chance of signing Trippier, who is also a target for Arsenal.
