Arsenal have set an asking price of at least £30m for Mesut Ozil amid interest from Manchester United, the Daily Star say.

There continues to be speculation over the future of Ozil, whose contract is due to expire in the summer.

It is claimed that United boss Jose Mourinho, who managed him at Real Madrid, is keen to sign him.

The Star say Arsenal will demand at least £30m for Ozil and the same price for Alexis Sanchez, whose contract also expires at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail say Tottenham have joined a list of clubs interested in Hamburg striker Jann-Fiete Arp. That list also apparently includes Arsenal and Chelsea.

The Daily Mirror have picked up on more reports in Spain linking Tottenham striker Harry Kane with a move to Real Madrid, this time after Diario Gol again claimed the England international could replace Karim Benzema.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has held talks with Chinese backers over a £500m investment to help fund a newly developed stadium, according to The Sun.

The Mirror say Chelsea are still keen to sign Ross Barkley from Everton and will compete with Spurs for his signature when the transfer window reopens.

The Telegraph run a similar story – and again suggest Chelsea are interested in Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke.

And Charlton could net a £250,000 windfall from Liverpool if former Addicks defender Joe Gomez plays for England against Brazil or Germany this month, the Mail reports.

The two clubs agreed the clause when Gomez moved to Anfield in 2015
