What the papers say

A loan move to Germany appears to be in the offing for Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Mail says Bayer Leverkusen are in advanced talks with the Blues about taking the 21-year-old winger for a season.

The Mirror reports Everton are ready to cash in on 21-year-old forward Anthony Gordon, but only if they can find an appropriate replacement. Joao Pedro (20) of Watford and Southampton’s Scotland international Che Adams (26) are being considered by the Toffees, the paper adds. The Merseysiders previously rejected a £45 million bid from Chelsea for Gordon, who has also been linked with Tottenham.

Could Jude Bellingham leave Borussia Dortmund next summer? Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United are all said to be keen on the England midfielder, but the Sun cites Marca as saying Real Madrid will use their £70 million windfall from selling Casemiro to the Red Devils to snap up the 19-year-old in 2023.

United will up their offer for Ajax forward Antony (22) to £80 million after having their £68 million bid rejected, reports the Mail.
