PAPER GOSSIP (by Nick Judd)
- Bayern Munich aim to ease their goalkeeping difficulties by signing Daniel Peretz from Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, according to Sky Sports Germany's Florian Plettenberg. Bayern had been considering moves for former Manchester United keeper David de Gea and Manchester City's Stefan Ortega, though the latter club are said to have little intention of negotiating. Peretz, 23, has been a standout player for the Israeli side, amassing 43 clean sheets in 100 appearances. Bayern have reached a verbal agreement with Peretz, and the deal -- expected to be for €2m plus add-ons -- looks to be in the final stages. The Israeli international will likely sign a contract lasting until 2027.
- West Ham United and Everton
- Newcastle United are inching closer to a deal for Chelsea defender Lewis Hall in a deal believed to be around £28m, according to the Sun. The 18-year-old left-back has recently signed a six-year deal that would take him to 2029, but the Blues are hopeful of recouping some of the £150m they've spent to sign Moisés Caicedo and Romeo Lavia to Stamford Bridge. Hall is a boyhood Newcastle fan and is set to become the Toon's fourth signing of the summer. Eddie Howe expects to land Hall on an initial loan deal with an option to sign permanently next year and they see him as a perfect long-term investment.
- West Ham United are close to reaching a full agreement with Ajax Amsterdam for talented attacking midfielder Mohamed Kudus €40m deal for the 23-year-old star, who the Londoners see as a vital addition alongside the recent signings of James Ward-Prowse and Edson Álvarez. Next on West Ham's list is rumoured to be Rennes winger Jérémy Doku, while David Moyes is also in the market for reinforcements to his backline.
