Danny Rose, who helped his Tottenham side secure a spot in the Champions League final, is being eyed up by Paris St Germain according to the Daily Mirror. The paper says that Rose, who has 26 England caps, could leave Spurs if clubs offer the right price.

What the papers say

Manchester City have dialled back their interest in signing Portuguese forward Bruno Fernandes, according to the Sun. There was speculation earlier this week that the Sporting Lisbon man could move for £47million, but Guardiola has cooled on the move.

Lloyd Kelly, capped three times for the England under-21 side, has caught the attention of Southampton, who will have to pay £15million for the Bristol City man, writes the Daily Mirror.
