Boateng’s camp offered him to Ancelotti (Calciomercato)

Bayern Munich veteran center-back (a dying breed these days) Jerome Boateng has been offered to Napoli by his agent per a report from Calciomercato.

According to Corriere dello Sport, it seems like Jerome Boateng’s entourage offered their client to Napoli. Jerome Boateng is set to leave Bayern Munich as he seems interested in a move to Napoli. It now remains to be seen if Ancelotti and ADL are also interested in acquiring him.

Would Carlo Ancelotti be interested in bringing in two of his ex-Bayern players? If Boateng makes the move, maybe he can hook up with James Rodriguez, who is also rumored to be headed to Italy.

Kabak’s list of suitors is slowly being revealed (GianlucaDiMarzio.com)

We already knew that Bayern and Schalke 04 were in the running for VfB Stuttgart center-back Ozan Kabak, but now Italian journalist Gianluca DiMarzio is adding another name to the list: AC Milan.

In defense, in the meantime, Milan worked for a surprise shot: it was Ozan Kabak, Stuttgart’s 2000 class defender, bought by the German club for 11 million by Galatasaray and on which, following the relegation of the club owning the card, there was a rescission clause of 15 million.

According to Turkish outlet Hurriyet (as captured by Sport Witness), West Ham United is also heavily involved in a move for Kabak.

Hurriyet today claim Ozan Kabak’s agent Fazil Ozdemir has met with AC Milan’s Paolo Maldini to discuss a potential transfer for his client, with West Ham United and Bayern Munich also said to have made official offers for the Turkish youngster.

Celtic makes last gasp effort on Morrison (FootballInsdier247.com)

Bayern is reportedly inching closer to signing Celtic youngster Liam Morrison, but the Scottish club isn’t going down without a fight.

Football Insider revealed on Monday that Bayern have set their sights on the defender, 16, and that he is on the verge of agreeing terms with them after being made a contract. A Celtic source has told Football Insider the club do not want to lose Morrison, who they regard as an outstanding prospect and one of the best young players in Scotland.

They have told him they have big plans for him and there is a real pathway from the youth team to the senior side at Parkhead, one followed most impressively by Kieran Tierney in recent years, and Callum McGregor and James Forrest before him.

Los Blancos still pondering move for Eriksen (Transfer Market Web)

Even after bringing informer Chelsea star Eden Hazard, Real Madrid is not done looking to bolster its roster. Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen has reportedly gotten another offer from Los Blancos.

According to latest UK news, Real Madrid have just pitched Tottenham down a new bid, aimed to get Danish international box-to-box midfielder Christian Eriksen (27) signed. Blancos’ move include a 50 million euros cash payout and 22-year-old playmaker Dani Ceballos sign away. On his hand, Eriksen is still tracked also by Juventus, Manchester United, and PSG.

At one point, Bayern was in the running for Eriksen, but that does not appear to be the case any longer.

Wagner checks in from China (Sport Bild)

Former Bayern Munich striker Sandro Wagner provided an update with how things are going in China:

I’m fine in China. In the beginning, I needed something to get used to, both sporty and private. My family feels well. It’s a huge treasure trove of experience that I can take with me here, it takes me much further as a person. It broadens my horizons. It’s a bit tough from a sporting point of view, but we have a solid midfield field that fits.

Wagner has yet to score in 11 appearances, but does have an assist.
