Paper round-up: United ready to ‘break the bank’ to sign Rice

Manchester United are prepared to spend big to sign Declan Rice but will not be continuing their pursuit of Aaron Wan-Bisska, according to The Sun. 

The Sun say United have ended their interest in Crystal Palace right-back Wan-Bissaka but are ready to ‘break the bank’ for West Ham star Rice and that Fulham are confident of keeping striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Rice has been linked with several other clubs, including Chelsea, while Mitrovic has been tipped to move on in the wake of Fulham’s relegation.

Meanwhile, the Daily Express say Fulham are lining up Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke to take over as manager at Craven Cottage.

Tottenham continue to be linked with Everton loan star Andre Gomes.

The Portugal midfielder has impressed while on loan at Goodison Park from Barcelona this season and Everton are keen to sign him on a permanent deal this summer.

Tottenham have also been tipped to make an offer for him and the Daily Star say Spurs are prepared to pay £30m in order to take him to north London.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Tottenham striker Harry Kane could require surgery on his ankle injury.

The Daily Mail reports that Gareth Southgate will watch Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi in action against Liverpool as the England boss assesses his options in light of Kane’s injury.

And Arsenal continue to be linked with Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser.

The Daily Mirror say Fraser could be sold by the Cherries this summer as his contract expires next year and there has so far been no sign of a new deal.

Arsenal are reported to be keen to sign Fraser, who has scored six goals this season.
