Paper round-up: Rent to fall if West Ham go down – Sun

The Sun reports that London Mayor Sadiq Khan wants talks with West Ham as the club’s rent at the London Stadium would be halved if the club are relegated from the Premier League.

The Hammers pay £2.5m per year and this would reportedly fall to £1.25m if they go down, increasing the burden on the public purse.

The Telegraph say West Ham are involved in a £100m-plus legal dispute with London Stadium owners the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) over the capacity of the ground for football matches.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail say Arsenal are ready to sell Hector Bellerin but want £50m.

It follows reports Juventus are keen to sign the Spaniard at the end of of the season.

The Mail say Arsenal are preparing to listen to offers if selling Bellerin would mean raising funds to bring in new signings.

The newspaper also speculate over whether Manchester City, who were linked with Bellerin before signing Kyle Walker from Tottenham, might be interested.

Meanwhile, the Daily Star claim Arsenal’s board are keen to install Juventus’ Massimiliano Allegri as manager.

Allegri is among a number of managers touted as a possible replacement for Arsene Wenger and the Star claim the Gunners hierarchy want him after being impressed by Juve’s Champions League victory over Tottenham.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Harry Kane plans to still be at Tottenham when they move to their new stadium.

He said: “I remember sitting at White Hart Lane as a fan growing up and watching Tottenham play so to now be part of the team moving into this new stadium is really exciting.

“I can’t wait to see a load of fans inside and what that will look like. I can’t wait to be out there scoring some goals. To think we’re not that far away now is incredible.”
