Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, and Manchester United are allegedly among those clubs. Real Madrid could also throw their hat in the ring if an attempt to sign Erling Haaland doesn’t work out. [Diario AS – in Spanish]

Liverpool have contacted Neuhaus’ club Borussia Monchengladbach. Talks, though, won’t advance until Germany’s Euro 2020 campaign is finished. [Sport1 – in German]

But while Arsenal are yet to make an approach to Brighton, the Seagulls won’t stand in White’s way for the right price. [The Athletic]
