Tottenham eye Manchester United's Jesse Lingard as Dele Alli replacement

Jesse Lingard could be reuniting with Jose Mourinho at Tottenham as Dele Alli is offered to Paris Saint-Germain, Antonio Rudiger might be leaving Chelsea after falling out of favour with Frank Lampard, Crystal Palace move into pole position in the race for Rhian Brewster and Leicester look to the Bundesliga as they chase a new centre-back.

Lingard to reunite with Mourinho?

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard could be set for a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur, according to ESPN. The 27-year-old has fallen out of favour at his boyhood club and is now looking to play first-team football elsewhere, with ESPN reporting that discussions are under way over a move to Spurs. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Lingard that he wants to keep him and opportunities will arise but Tottenham are looking at the England international as a possible replacement for compatriot Dele Alli, who has been offered to Paris Saint-Germain. Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg are also interested in the possibility of signing Lingard.

***: It seems like Dele Alli's time at Tottenham could be over. Last week he was linked to Real Madrid and now it's PSG. He has failed to perform at a consistent level over the past few seasons - but why would Spurs then replace him with someone else with the very same characteristics? Lingard lacks consistency too. The Manchester United star was decent under Mourinho during his spell as manager at Old Trafford, but he wasn't performing on a weekly basis. If you've watched a certain Tottenham Hotspur documentary, you will know that Mourinho doesn't rate Alli's work rate. At least Lingard offers that. You can't fault the United man's effort and maybe that's what Spurs are looking for.

Rudiger fallen out of favour at Chelsea

Antonio Rudiger seems to have fallen out of favour under Frank Lampard at Chelsea and could leave the west London club before the transfer window closes next month, according to the Mail. The German defender was left out of the Blues squad for their 2-0 defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday and was an unused substitute in Chelsea's opening-weekend win against Brighton. The decisions have thrown Rudiger's future at Stamford Bridge into doubt, especially with the arrival of Thiago Silva from Paris Saint-Germain. Lampard is planning to sell some squad players before the transfer window closes and the 27-year-old could be at risk.

Palace lead race for Brewster

Crystal Palace are now leading the race for Rhian Brewster as Liverpool look to offload "up to five players" following the signings of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich and Diogo Jota from Wolves. The Mail report that the Eagles are now favourites to secure Brewster's signature, with Sheffield United and West Brom both interested in the 20-year-old. Liverpool are looking to receive a fee of £20m plus the added bonuses of a buy-back clause and a sell-on fee. The Mail reveal Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, Harry Wilson, Loris Karius, Nat Phillips, Yasser Larouci and Taiwo Awoniyi are also being touted for Anfield exits before the transfer window closes next month.

Leicester looking to sign a defender

Leicester City are exploring the possibility of adding Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Jonathan Tah to their squad before the transfer window closes. According to the Telegraph, the Foxes have made a loan enquiry for the German defender, but are also interested in signing the 24-year-old on a permanent deal too. Leicester's first-choice target is Saint-Etienne centre-back Wesley Fofana, but the club are finding negotiations difficult with the French club, which could lead them to turn their interests to Tah.
