Liverpool are set to sign Isaac Christie-Davies on a free transfer after the midfielder was released by Chelsea, ESPN say.

The Mirror say the Gunners have held talks with the Ivory Coast international but that Chelsea are set to snap him up.

Juve eyeing Morata deal – reports

Italian outlet Tuttosport claim Chelsea have agreed in principle to Alvaro Morata joining Juventus on loan this summer with a view to a permanent move to the Turin club.

It is claimed that the striker will spend one or two seasons on loan at Juve before a proposed £40m permanent transfer, making the total package worth around £53.2m.

Zaha linked again

The Daily Mirror say Tottenham, who previously showed an interest in Zaha, are ready to move for him this summer, that Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are also keen and that Manchester City could target him if they cannot sign Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez.

The Sun, meanwhile, say Palace will demand £70m for Zaha, who is under contract at Selhurst Park until 2022.
