Paper round-up: West Ham eyeing French youngster

West Ham are among clubs being linked with a move for Clermont striker Florian Aye.

The former France Under-20 international has impressed this season and reports across the Channel suggest he could be on his way to England.

The Sunday Mirror (page 68) say Southampton are leading a race to sign Aye and that there is also interest from the Hammers and Leeds United.

Meanwhile, West Ham and Watford are interested in former Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado, according to The Sun on Sunday.

The Sunday Express again link Adrien Rabiot, whose contract at Paris St-Germain expires this summer, with a potential move to Arsenal.

The Sunday Mirror claim Tottenham are considering a move for Torino midfielder Soualiho Meite but that he could cost £18m.

And the Mail on Sunday link Chelsea with a possible move for Napoli’s Italy forward Lorenzo Insigne.

It comes after Napoli’s former Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti said: “We don’t need to sell our best players. We can sign new players following our ideas.

“However, I am not going to block who wants to leave, I’ve never done it in my career.”

Insigne, who is under contract with the Naples club until 2022, has been quoted as saying: “I may receive an offer I can’t refuse,”
