Why Harry Kane must 'look after himself' and leave Spurs (1:12)

Janusz Michallik expects Harry Kane to leave Tottenham with their Champions League hopes all but gone. (1:12)

The January transfer window might seem like a distant memory, but that doesn't mean the rumour mill has shut down! Speculation over summer moves is heating up, so check out the latest gossip below, and see all official deals here.

TOP STORY: Kane hopes Spurs listen to offers for him

Harry Kane is said to be urging Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy to listen to offers to transfer him this summer, reports the Sun.

The report states that with Spurs unlikely to finish in the European places in the Premier League this season, Kane will look to move on in an effort to play Champions League football.

Qualifying for the Champions League was seen as the minimum requirement for the north London club to keep hold of the England captain's services, and Spurs now need to win their remaining three league games and hope other clubs slip up if they're to sneak into the top four.

The Sun believes the 27-year-old has yet to ask for a transfer, but that he hopes the club will at least be open to bids, which could see a big-money move set up.

Spurs are unlikely to want to let their star man leave, though, for he still has three years left on his contract. There was a hope among the Tottenham hierarchy that they could persuade Kane to stay for one more season, but the Whites' dismal end-of-season form would suggest that is increasingly unlikely.

Manchester United and Barcelona are considering making a move for Kane.

15.38 BST: Edinson Cavani has signed a contract extension with Manchester United, sources have told ESPN Brasil's Daniel Bocatto.

Sources told ESPN's Rob Dawson late last month that United were growing increasingly confident that the Uruguay international will stay at the club for another season following productive talks with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Cavani had at one time looked set to leave Old Trafford after just one season after growing disillusioned with life in England. He remains upset at receiving an FA suspension over a controversial Instagram post, but sources told ESPN he is keen to stay in Europe for as long as possible ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The 34-year-old is wanted by Boca Juniors, but he has decided to remain in England after rediscovering his best form at United. The former PSG striker has scored eight goals in his last seven games.

14.43 BST: There are growing doubts among the Barcelona board regarding coach Ronald Koeman's future at the club beyond the end of the season, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN's Moises Llorens and Sam Marsden.

Koeman, 58, signed a two-year deal at Camp Nou last summer but the recent defeat to Granada and Saturday's draw with Atletico Madrid have served to increase the uncertainty surrounding his position. With three games to go in La Liga, Barca's title hopes depend on winning all their remaining fixtures and hoping leaders Atletico and Real Madrid drop points. However, regardless of what happens in the final weeks of the season, there are members of the board that are keen to start afresh with a new coach in the summer.

"That's not one to answer now but after the last game of the season," Koeman said in a news conference on Monday when asked if he feared for his job. "From the first day, the president [Joan Laporta] has shown confidence in me. He's the one who can make decisions and, once the season finishes, we will talk about the future.

"I am not worried. I signed a two-year deal and I see myself here next year. If that's not the case, the president will have to speak to me. We have arranged to talk at the end of the campaign. There are still two weeks to go and we have three very important games, so now is not the time to talk about my future."

Why do Barcelona keep falling short this season?

Sid Lowe details Barcelona's worrying "recurring theme" in La Liga this season.

13.45 BST: Real Madrid are interested in signing Serge Aurier this summer and the Tottenham Hotspur right-back has spoken "at length" with Raphael Varane about a move to the Bernabeu, Foot Mercato reports.

Aurier, 28, has been linked with a return to former club Paris Saint-Germain and a reunion with Mauricio Pochettino.

However, the Ivory Coast international has also been in contact with Real Madrid defender Varane, who is a former teammate of Aurier's from their time together at Lens.

Madrid are in the market for an understudy to cover for first-choice right-back Dani Carvajal and Aurier, whose contract at Spurs is due to expire at the end of next season, could be available for an affordable transfer fee.

12.52 BST: Chelsea midfielder Connor Gallagher is keen to return to Stamford Bridge next season and impress manager Thomas Tuchel rather than spend another season out on loan, according to The Sun.

Gallagher has caught the eye during his season-long loan at West Brom despite the Baggies' failure to avoid Premier League relegation, scoring two goals in 27 top-flight appearances so far this term.

The 21-year-old has been linked with interest from Leeds, Crystal Palace and Newcastle, but he wants to try to establish himself in the Blues' first-team squad next season.

11.59 BST: Wolfsburg have signed 24-year-old midfielder Jill Roord from Arsenal on a three-year deal.

The Netherlands international is returning to the Frauen Bundesliga after spending two years with Bayern Munich before joining Arsenal in 2019.

"I am very proud and very happy to be able to wear the VfL Wolfsburg jersey from the summer," Roord said in a statement. "From my point of view, this is exactly the right step to develop personally. Of course, I would also like to help ensure that we win titles as a team and be successful."

Roord, who has played 62 times for the national squad, won the European Championship in 2017 as well as two league titles with FC Twente in 2014 and 2016.

09.54 BST: Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is confident the club can keep hold of Eberechi Eze after the midfielder's impressive debut season in the Premier League.

Eze has scored four goals in 32 league appearances since making his move from Queens Park Rangers last summer. The 22-year-old caught the eye again on Saturday with a fine solo goal in the 2-0 win at Sheffield United.

Asked if he was concerned about attention in Eze from big clubs, Hodgson said: "It has not really occurred to me as we've only just signed him.

"It was quite an investment for our club to pay 15mand then £5m in add-ons - that's quite a big investment for us.

"I wasn't contemplating that it was an investment that would only last one season and then he would move somewhere else, so I hope that is not the case."

09.00 BST: Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has admitted that "it's nice when teams like Real Madrid and Bayern [Munich] take an interest" but said he "hasn't yet decided" what he'll do this summer.

The 18-year-old France international has a year left on his contract with the Ligue 1 club and is widely expected to push for a move ahead of next season.

"It makes you feel flattered and it's nice when teams like Real Madrid or Bayern take an interest in your situation, I'm not going to lie," Camavinga told Telefoot. "But I haven't decided yet with my family what I'm going to do."

Rennes drew 1-1 with Paris Saint-Germain, another team Camavinga has been linked with, on Sunday, although he missed the match through suspension.

PAPER GOSSIP (by Nick Judd)

- Manchester City are leading the race to sign Espanyol young gun Mateo Fernandez, according to the Sun. The 17-year-old striker, who is eligible to play for both Spain and England, is seen by City as a player they can develop and has the technical ability and strength to succeed in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola is looking for reinforcements in attack with Sergio Aguero set to leave this summer.

- Telefoot is reporting that Kylian Mbappe is stalling over new contract talks amidst interest from Real Madrid. And should the 22-year-old French World Cup winner decide to move on, that could spark a scramble by Paris Saint-Germain to lure Mohamed Salah from Liverpool. Mbappe was heavily criticised for his performance in both legs of PSG's defeat to Manchester City in the Champions League semifinal. Salah, meanwhile, has scored 20 goals in 34 league games and may consider a new start in the summer.

- Barcelona are prioritising a top striker this summer and Sport believe they've made Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland their No. 1 priority, followed by Internazionale star Lautaro Martinez. Barcelona are looking to reinforce every area of the squad and that includes in attack, and the Catalan club have moved from Neymar after the Brazilian extended his stay at PSG with a new deal.

- After weeks of speculation, Leicester City finally look to have got their man, with Fabrizio Romano claiming the Foxes are set to announce the capture of Lille midfielder Boubakary Soumare for less than €30m. Leicester have been pursuing the in-demand player for some time, with Spurs among a host of club's also eager to land the 22-year-old. The Frenchman is believed to have agreed personal terms, and the deal could be announced this week. Soumare is out of contract at Lille in 2022, and so his departure this summer would appear a formality.

- Hot on the heels of Neymar's decision to stay at PSG, Julian Draxler is the next player expected to put pen to paper on a contract extension, reports L'Equipe. The midfielder has received an official proposal that would see him stay in the French capital for another three years, and a deal is expected to be completed in the next few days. The 27-year-old Germany international was a potential target for Bayern Munich.
