Tottenham launch club-record £60m bid for Mauricio Pochettino's top transfer target

Manchester United remain in pursuit of Tanguy Ndombele.

A clause in the loan deal meant that, had Ospina played 25 games last season, they would have been obliged to buy him, but he played 24 and Napoli now have until Saturday to make up their minds.

The Premier League club will make an improved offer for the 23-year-old midfielder over the next few days, according to the report.

Several clubs have been interested in the France worldwide, with Tottenham credited with opening talks to take him to north London. Both teams are linked away with many players, but Manchester United might take the march on a common target.

Albeit that interest, the player is hesitant about the prospect of working at Old Trafford now.

Chelsea allow Maurizio Sarri to join Juventus - Frank Lampard to take over
The pending return of club legend Lampard will help galvanise a fanbase that was fractured during Sarri's tumultuous reign. Meanwhile, the Daily Star say Chelsea will refuse to sell Kurt Zouma because of the prospect of a transfer ban.

The Argentine has been pursued by Spurs, who even lodged a £53 million bid that was rejected by Betis.

Learning the interest from the Red Devils, Real Betis are exclusively focussing on a bidding war for their midfielder.

The 22-year-old France global is at the top of Mauricio Pochettino's wish list, and the Spurs board is ready to back the manager to the tune of a £60m fee - more than they've ever doled out for a single player.

Midfield will also be an area Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to strengthen ahead of the new season, especially with Marouane Fellaini departing during the last campaign and Ander Herrera confirmed to be leaving the club on a free transfer. The midfielder with Nemanja Matic, Fred, and Paul Pogba have been untidy, to say the least. Pochettino has already started his work by searching for Christian Eriksen's replacement. However, the former France worldwide has yet to make up his mind and continues to wait for offers from bigger clubs. The report also suggested that Betis official had travelled to England, thus fuelling speculation that Man Utd are now the favourites for the midfielder.

Here's how Twitter has reacted.
