The Sun have picked up on reports in France suggesting that Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier would rather join Manchester United than Tottenham.

Both clubs have been linked with the 24-year-old ahead of this week’s transfer deadline.

Spurs are reported to have had an offer for Aurier accepted by the Ligue 1 club.

The suggestion he would prefer a move to Old Trafford came from SFR Sport. 

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror say West Ham have given Sporting Lisbon an ultimatum over midfielder William Carvalho.

The Hammers are said to have offered £30m plus £5m in add-ons but the Portuguese club have reportedly upped the asking price to £40m.

The Mirror say that has left the Hammers furious and that they have told Sporting to accept their offer or there will be no deal.

The Mirror also say Slaven Bilic has been given four matches to save his job as West Ham manager.

Sam Alladyce is being considered for a shock return as Crystal Palace manager, again according to the Mirror.

And the Mirror also claim Chelsea are trying to rush through a £40m deal for Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to fend off Liverpool.

The Mirror say Chelsea want to move quickly because “they fear Liverpool in the background.”

The Daily Express declare that Chelsea are closing in on a “£75m double early transfer deadline day swoop”, paying £35m for Oxlade-Chamberlain and £40m for Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater.
