    THIS AIN’T ODE

    A bid for Martin Odegaard WILL be launched this week, according to reports in Spain.

    A loan bid or £25million transfer fee will be Arsenal’s offer, although Real Madrid are said to want £42m.

    The Norwegian has not been registered for LaLiga by Los Blancos, with Spanish outlet ABC asserting that he wants to be a regular starter.

    They even add that Odegaard is Arteta’s ‘pretty boy’ and that it is ‘better to be a mouse’s mouth than a lion's tail’. Meow.

    LAUT TO LIKE

    A huge £275,000-a-week contract offer has reportedly been prepared for Lautaro Martinez.

    Arsenal are desperate to improve their squad in the final fortnight of the window despite already spending big so far.

    Italian outlet Sport Mediaset details a mega personal terms bid to sign Inter Milan star Martinez.

    But the sale of Romelu Lukaku and the Argentine’s desire to stay in Serie A could scupper the deal.

    Martinez’s agent, Alejandro Camano, told TyC Sports: “To date, he is not leaving Inter, despite offers from England.

    “He is happy there and loves the club. Next week we will meet to talk about the renewal. Our will is clear, but it will also depend on them."

    TOTT OF THE POPS

    The race for Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic continues with Tottenham still among the contenders.

    According to Fabrizio Romano, Atletico Madrid have failed to get a deal off the ground for the striker.

    A bid of around £50million may be necessary with Spurs said to be keen – but Fiorentina are also determined to keep their star man.

    PEREIRA INTEREST

    Brazilian club Flamengo have launched a loan bid for Manchester United's Andreas Pereira.

    PAUL ALRIGHT

    Paul Scholes believes Paul Pogba will sign a new Manchester United contract – now that they look like a team capable of winning trophies.

    The French midfielder, 28, has entered the final year of his current deal at Old Trafford.

    And the Red Devils legend told Premier League Productions: "I think he’ll stay. I think he will.

    "When he was playing a couple of years ago in a team that wasn’t quite functioning as well as this one looks like it might do, and with the amount of attacking players he’s got, the ability he’s got, I think he’ll add a lot to this team.

    "I think he’ll end up signing a new contract.

    "If this team carries on in this manner, progressing like it is – I don’t want to get too excited – but it’s a team that can go on and win trophies and that’s what he wants to do."

    BLUES SUPPORT FOR MICHAEL

    Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel penned a touching message to club legend Michael Ballack in his programme notes ahead of his team's Premier League opening win over Crystal Palace.

    Retired midfielder Ballack lost his son Emilio, 18, in a tragic quad bike accident earlier this month.

    The German coach wrote: "I would like to use my notes to send a message to Michael Ballack.

    "We recently received the terrible news that his son, Emilio, had passed away in tragic circumstances.

    "I was told by Petr Cech when I came in from training and, even before he told me, I could feel that something was wrong when I came into the building because the mood among everyone was so low.

    "It was a shock for us all.

    "I'm not in touch with Michael personally, but I know how much of an important figure he is for Chelsea, and of course for Germany as well.

    "It is the worst thing that can happen to you as a parent and he can be sure that we are all thinking about him as we send him and his family our strength and best wishes."

    ROME BOUND

    Tammy Abraham is set to fly to Italy today to complete his transfer to Roma, according to reports.

    The Chelsea striker, 23, has agreed a £34million transfer to the Serie A giants.

    According to Sky Italia, Roma general manager Tiago Pinto held positive talks with Abraham in London on Thursday.

    And now the Blues’ academy graduate looks on course to seal the switch, believing he will play a key role under new boss Jose Mourinho.

    The report adds he will undergo a medical at Rome’s Villa Stuart Clinic this afternoon.

    And assuming there are no issues, Abraham shall put pen to paper on a five-year contract at the Stadio Olimpico worth £4m per year after tax – taking home £80,000 per week.

    It is understood Chelsea have inserted a £68m buy-back clause into the deal.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS

    Tammy Abraham has reportedly rejected Arsenal by ‘definitely saying yes’ to Roma.

    Gianluca Di Marzio claims the Chelsea striker has agreed to link up with Jose Mourinho in Italy.

    Despite having initial reservations, Abraham is now set for a move to the capital.

    Roma are expected to pay around £34million for his services.

    And Abraham will undergo a medical today.

    Meanwhile, Paul Pogba is going nowhere next summer, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

    The 28-year-old Frenchman provided four assists in United's 5-1 demolition of Leeds, and Red Devils fans will be pleased to hear that talks are ongoing between Pogba's agent Mino Raiola and Old Trafford bosses for a contract renewal.

    Romano reports that no deal has been agreed yet but talks have been ongoing for a number of weeks.

    It was rumoured that Pogba was a target for PSG until Messi's move to Paris, but according to Romano the Messi deal is irrelevant to Pogba's situation at United.

    The Red Devils always believed that he was staying and will work hard to get a deal over the line in the coming weeks.

    Finally, Chelsea centre-back Matt Miazga is on the verge of a loan move to Spanish side Alaves, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

    He reports that a fee has been agreed for the USA international to join on loan until the end of the season.

    And Michy Batshuayi is also on his way out of Stamford Bridge.

    He's set to join Besiktas in the next week, with the Turkish club's manager Sergen Yalçin saying: "We’re currently in talks to sign Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea. If nothing goes wrong, I expect him to join the squad next week."

    FULL NELSON

    Arsenal hope Reiss Nelson will sign a new contract — before sending him out on loan.

    The Gunners do not want to lose the winger, 21, in the long term or sell him now to give boss Mikel Arteta a bigger transfer kitty.

    Instead, Nelson will be offered fresh terms beyond his current two-year deal, then be tied down and allowed to pick his next move.

    Crystal Palace, who will play Brentford next in the league, are keen.

  • Anthony Chapman

    HUGO-ING?

    Hugo Lloris admits he is in the dark over a new Spurs deal.

    The Tottenham captain said: "I don’t know. There is nothing from the club, to be honest. I don’t have to show – prove – my loyalty towards the club after nine years and season No.10 that is coming.

    "I'm just calm and relaxed and focused on myself and make sure that I’m ready to compete in the first game. I always give my priority to Spurs and we will see what will happen.

    "I’m not affected by that, I'm just enjoying football. My only reason to wake up every morning is to work, enjoy the training session and enjoy the competition."

    BEN AND GONE

    Ben Davies is heading to Sheffield United on loan for the season — without starting a game at Liverpool.

    The centre-half, 26, has been cleared to join the Blades, who have chased him for weeks, as SunSport first revealed.

    And Kop boss Jurgen Klopp is happy for the former Preston defender to go rather than stay on the sidelines.

  • Anthony Chapman

    MADD FOR IT

    James Maddison reportedly remains Arsenal's top target over Martin Odegaard.

    The AFC Bell claims Mikel Arteta is eager to sign Leicester's playmaker this summer.

    That's despite reports linking the Gunners with a fresh move for former loan star Odegaard.

    The Norwegian appears to be out of Carlo Ancelotti's plans at Real Madrid.

    And it now remains to be seen if either Maddison or Odegaard ends up at the Emirates.

  • Anthony Chapman

    WHEREVER I MAY ROME

    Tammy Abraham has reportedly opted to join Roma over Arsenal.

    Gianluca Di Marzio claims the Chelsea misfit is ready to sign for Jose Mourinho's Italian outfit in a £34million deal.

    Abraham has 'definitely said yes' to Roma and will undergo a medial shortly.

    That's despite interest from the Gunners, who are searching for more firepower.

  • Anthony Chapman

    DIALL TONE

    Amad Diallo is set to leave Man United on loan this summer.

    And Crystal Palace lead the race to sign the exciting winger.

    Diallo is set for limited game time at Old Trafford this term following Jadon Sancho's arrival.

    Fabrizio Romano claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now let the Ivorian play elsewhere to gain experience.

    And Palace are favourites despite interest from Swiss side Basel.

    PAUL STAYING PUT

    Paul Pogba is going NOWHERE next summer, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.

    The 28-year-old Frenchman provided FOUR assists in United's 5-1 demolition of Leeds today, and Red Devils fans will be pleased to hear that talks are ongoing between Pogba's agent Mino Raiola and Old Trafford bosses for a contract renewal.

    Romano reports that no deal has been agreed yet but talks have been ongoing for a number of weeks.

    It was rumoured that Pogba was a target for PSG until Messi's move to Paris, but according to Romano the Messi deal is irrelevant to Pogba's situation at United.

    The Red Devils always believed that he was staying and will work hard to get a deal over the line in the coming weeks.

    ANDRE STILL ON?

    Arsenal are yet to throw in the towel on their rumoured pursuit of Cameroon international Andre Onana, SANDRA BROBBEY reports.

    It is claimed the Gunners are still making enquiries about the Ajax goalkeeper’s availability, according to Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness.

    Arsenal, who face a tough clash with Chelsea next, are reported to have asked for information about Ajax ace Onana.

    It is claimed the stopper, 25, who is serving a nine-month ban from football for a doping violation, is keen to call time on his career with the Dutch champions.

    And it is thought that Mikel Arteta’s side may still be in the running for the Cameroon ace who could cost around £7.7million with Ajax reportedly keen not to lose him for free next summer as he enters the final months of his contract.

    TOLI-GO?

    Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso.

    That's according to Calciomercato, who are reporting that the German giants would take Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin in a straight swap for the Frenchman.

    Bellerin has been linked with a move away from North London all summer, with the 26-year-old an unused substitute in yesterday's defeat to Brentford.

    And 27-year-old Tolisso is set to leave Bayern this summer as he enters the final year of his contract, with Arsenal and Manchester United both linked with a move for the midfielder.

    But with Bayern willing to to take Bellerin in a swap deal it means the Gunners would not have to fork out any cash for a deal, a move that suits Mikel Arteta's side after already spending a combined £75million this summer.

    CRYPTIC MESSAGE

    Mohammed Salah's agent took to social media after his client scored for the FIFTH opening day of the season in a row today.

    Salah's goal in Liverpool's 3-0 win against Norwich made him the first ever player to score on the opening day for five seasons in a row, overtaking Teddy Sheringham's previous record of four.

    And when Salah fired home from the edge of the box, Ramy Abbas Issa tweeted:

    "I hope they’re watching."

    The tweet is likely to be aimed at Liverpool chiefs, who have tied down Alisson, Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk to long-term contracts in recent days.

    It could be a subtle hint to tell officials at the Reds to offer the 29-year-old a new deal as the Egyptian skipper enters the final two years of his contract.

  • Giacomo Pisa

    MESSI MISSING

    Lionel Messi is NOT in the PSG squad for tonight's game against Strasbourg.

    The 34-year-old joined on a free transfer from Barcelona in the week with many people think he could be included on the bench today.

    That isn't the case though, so PSG and football fans alike will have to wait a little longer to get a first glimpse of the Argentinian in action for the French giants.

    DOUBLE SWOOP

    Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba are both out of contract at the end of the season.

    And Sky Sports' Kaveh Solhekol has backed PSG to offer contracts to both of them come the end of the season.

    That's following the Parisians signing the likes of Gini Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos AND Lionel Messi without paying a fee this summer.

    And Solhekol predicts the French giants to do it again, saying on Sky Sports: "We've seen PSG have now got this policy of hoovering up the world's best players who are available on a free transfer and giving them massive wages.

    "I can see them picking up Cristiano Ronaldo next summer from Juventus and also Paul Pogba from Manchester United, both on free transfers.

    "If they carry on with this policy, why wouldn't they make those moves?"

    BOOS ALL AROUND

    Kylian Mbappe has been BOOED by the PSG crowd ahead of PSG's first home game of the Ligue 1 season.

    The 22-year-old striker has publicly said he doesn't want to extend his contract at the Parc des Princes, a decision that has not gone down well with the PSG faithful.
