- Media starts to forecast an exit from the manager: ✓
- Star player might want a change of scenery: ✓
More and more eager on a change of scene, English international striker Harry Kane (26), according to The Times, has been targeted by Juventus. Tottenham have already set a 200 million euros exit fee on their top-flight hitman, also tracked by Manchester United, Chelsea, PSG, and Real Madrid.
Former Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic has not settled in at Real Madrid as of yet given that Zinedine Zidane is using his mostly as a substitute. Jovic and former Chelsea star Eden Hazard were supposed to provide a boost to the offense for Los Blancos, but neither player looks overly comfortable in his new environment:

Yesterday, we covered how Fiete Arp’s future with Bayern Munich looks in doubt after a somewhat ominous statement from Niko Kovac. Today, the Bavarians have been linked to PSV Eindhoven striker Donyell Malen, who is just 20:
Perhaps my tinfoil hat is on a bit too tight after the whole “Thomas Müller is getting forced out” theory, but if I was reading the tea leaves today on Arp’s future, I’d say he’s probably not in Munich next season, which would be disappointing.

One out of Bundesliga main stars, Werner had his deal with RB Leipzig extended around 40 days ago, until June 2023, an is an item of interest for most top-flight clubs around, including Bayern Munich, Liverpool, and Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich youngster and former Vancouver Whitecaps star Alphonso Davies was given the “Simpsons” treatment:
Eintracht Frankfurt might have been looking very closely at Max Kruse to help fill the void left by Jovic, Rebic, and Haller, but the 31-year-old opted to leave for Fenerbahce instead according to Fredi Bobic:
We were (involved) early on. I had contact with the agent of Max several times, we also made him an offer and would have loved to see him with us, but he decided for Istanbul and against the other offers.
Bayern Munich was also linked to Kruse last spring.
