AC Milan to replace Zlatan with Edouard?

The Serie A leaders have, therefore, allegedly set their sights on Odsonne Edouard. The Celtic striker, who was a target for Arsenal last summer, has continued to impress in the Hoops frontline. Although several European clubs, including Juventus, are also monitoring Edouard. [The Sun]
Real Madrid set sights on Foden
The Spanish champions have made Phil Foden a transfer target. The 20-year-old has only made five starts in the Premier League and came on as an injury-time substitute in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Newcastle on Saturday.
This lack of regular opportunities under Pep Guardiola are said to have encouraged Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane’s side are long-term admirers of Foden and believe now could be their chance to make a move. [Mirror]
