The rumour mill is whizzing round at Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side won a third Premier League title in four years last time out, yet the Spaniard is looking to reshape his squad and go again.
European glory will be in the Citizens’ sights, having lost the Champions League final to Chelsea in May.
The Blues, along with their red cross-city rivals, will no-doubt be smelling blood after a lacklustre end to the season saw City show signs of vulnerability.
Whether it be incomings or outgoings, this is the place to hear the latest gossip as Guardiola plots a sky blue dynasty.
Here, Mirror Football rounds up the latest transfer news from the Etihad Stadium.
Spurs issue Kane stance
Fabio Paratici, Tottenham Hotspur’s new managing director of football, has stated that the Lilywhites will do everything within their power to keep hold of City target Harry Kane this summer.
The striker, 27, is reportedly seeking a move away in the transfer window with the desire to win trophies elshere.
Paratici told Sky Italia : “Keeping him is not just my goal, it’s our goal as a club.
“I can’t wait to watch him play live, I’ve been really lucky in the past years because I’ve watched a lot of top players and strikers, like Cristiano Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez, Alvaro Morata, Gonzalo Higuain, and many more which now I forgot about.”
The former Juventus chief added: “I haven’t heard from him yet because I don’t want to bother the players who are busy at the Euros, it doesn’t seem fair to me.
“They’re focused on their own goals with their national teams.”
This comes after French newspaper L’Equipe reported that Spurs would want £120 million for the England captain – less than the Citizens’ take-it-or-leave it offer of £100m last month.
Ings turns down contract
If City are not able to secure the services of Kane, then they may well be in with a good chance of finding an alternative for a cut-price fee.
Southampton striker Danny Ings has reportedly rejected a lucrative contract off at St Mary’s, with his current deal expiring next summer.
The Athletic report that the Saints ‘pulled out all the stops’ and could be forced to sell Ings this window in order to recoup a fee.
In March, it was reported by numbers outlets that the Citizens were considering a bid for the former Liverpool striker, who struggled with injuries at Anfield, who would be more attainable than the likes of Kane and Erling Haaland.
