The reports saying Bayern Munich was scoping Stade Rennais midfielder Eduardo Camavinga starting flowing in a couple of months back, but now it appears the 18-year-old Frenchman has caught the attention of some very deep-pocketed suitors.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain are all allegedly keeping an eye on the youngster:

Grillitsch drawing interest from Napoli (kicker)

Hoffenheim midfielder Florian Grillitsch is reportedly being scoped by Napoli:

At the EM, Florian Grillitsch played his way into the limelight with good performances. According to “Gazzetta dello Sport”, SSC Napoli is now offering ten million euros for the midfield strategist, whose contract is expiring. A sum that Hoffenheim is unlikely to be satisfied with - it should be at least 15 million. It is questionable whether Napoli is willing or able to pay that much. At TSG, it’s easy to see: if necessary, Grillitsch will enter the last year of the contract, after all, the Austrian once came from Bremen for free.

According to Transfer Market Web, Napoli is not just looking at Grillitsch in the Bundesliga, however. Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Denis Zakaria is reportedly also on Napoli’s radar:

Pursued by many top clubs all around Europe throughout latest couple years, including Arsenal, Chelsea, both Manchester giants, Tottenham, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig, and Paris Saint-Germain, 24-year old Swiss international centre-back and half-back Denis Zakaria, according to latest Italian news, is growing into a major Napoli market target.

Partenopei management are planning to go for it as long as they let out one out of Kalidou Koulibaly and Fabiàn Ruiz. Standing out from Borussia Monchengladbach ranks since 2017/18, Young Boys Bern and Servette alumni is still on a deal with German club until June 2022, and is meant to be on his way out on an about 32 million euros transfer fee.

Leipzig wants Lacroix (kicker)

RB Leipzig could be looking to further bolster their already deep squad by signing Maxence Lacroix from Wolfsburg:

Maxence Lacroix, courted by RB Leipzig, was allowed to wear the captain’s armband at VfL Wolfsburg in the test against second division Aue (2: 1). A visible sign from coach Mark van Bommel that the 21-year-old is one of the top performers. But that doesn’t change the facts: The player (contract until 2024) would like to move to Leipzig, both RB and VfL have announced. Wolfsburg has so far rejected two offers from Saxony of up to just over 20 million euros. And what does Lacroix say? VfL announced that he did not want to speak at the moment.
