Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan join race for Manchester United's Jesse Lingard

Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan add Jesse Lingard to their radars, while the French champions view Jadon Sancho as a potential replacement for Kylian Mbappe and Arsenal join the race for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard.
Lingard wanted by Europe's finest
Jesse Lingard has attracted the attention of Europe's giants, with ESPN revealing that Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan are all monitoring the 28-year-old ahead of the summer transfer window. Lingard has taken the Premier League by storm since joining West Ham United on loan from Manchester United in January, scoring eight goals in just nine matches for the London club. The Hammers - who sit in fourth place in the Premier League table - are hoping to sign Lingard permanently at the end of the season and the England international's preference is to play in the Champions League next term.

***: There is no denying that Lingard's current form is nothing short of incredible, but Real Madrid, PSG and Inter...? Really? No offence to the guy, but it seems a bit much. If he was attracting attention from those kinds of clubs, United would probably be thinking about keeping hold of him. Lingard is a great player on his day, but he is quite a streaky player. He would be a brilliant signing for West Ham and he would probably still be a good option if United decided to give him a second chance at the club... but maybe not for a club looking to win the Champions League.
PSG eye Sancho as Mbappe replacement
Paris Saint-Germain have expressed an interest in Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho and could pursue a summer transfer if Kylian Mbappe decides to leave the French capital. The Athletic report that the England international could replace Mbappe, who is engaged in talks with PSG over a contract extension. The French forward's current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2022, meaning that PSG may decide to part ways with Mbappe at the end of the season in order to avoid losing him for free next year if an extension is not agreed. 
***: PSG are in a pickle. The club desperately need to resolve the future of Mbappe as early as possible. It seems like Neymar is set to stay and sign a contract extension, but it would be a real disaster if Mbappe didn't follow suit. The situation is made worse by the fact that Europe's top clubs are still recovering from the financial impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. It could force PSG to either accept a lower bid for the World Cup winner this summer... or - if they fail to find a buyer - lose him for free in 2022. Sancho would be an exciting replacement but you'd expect that the French champions would prefer to keep hold of Mbappe.

Arsenal eye Edouard in summer move
Arsenal are ready to go head-to-head with Leicester City over the summer signing of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to the Telegraph. The Gunners could be set for an "overhaul of their forward line" with both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah approaching the final year of their contracts. Arsenal may still open negotiations over a contract extension for Lacazette, but the club view Edouard as his potential replacement if he were to leave the Emirates this summer. Edouard would cost between £15 million to £20 million as his contract also expires in 2022.
