Liverpool ponder Vidal swoop
La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting Liverpool are considering a summer bid for Juventus hotshot Arturo Vidal.
With Steven Gerrard leaving, the Reds are on the lookout for midfield reinforcements and they appear ready to test the Bianconeri’s resolve with an official proposal for the Chilean.
Prizing Vidal away from Turin is unlikely to be an easy task given that he has developed into a key player for Juventus, but he might be allowed to leave if Paul Pogba stays.
The Bianconeri are being linked with a summer move on Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, who is co-owned with Cagliari.
Arturo Vidal has proved to be one of club’s best signings in recent years, having bagged 35 goals in 124 Serie A outings since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen.
The interesting thing is that the Chilean has won the league title in each of his four seasons with the Bianconeri.
PSG in new assault on Di Maria
French giants Paris Saint-Germain are stepping up their efforts to sign Argentine midfielder Angel Di Maria from Manchester United, according to Le Parisien.
The Saints have made recruiting a high-quality attacking midfielder their transfer priority and it is clear that the Argentina star is the first name on club’s hit-list.
Di Maria has largely struggled to prove his worth at Old Trafford and he may be allowed to leave at the end of the season.
In case the Argentine prove too expensive, Paris Saint-Germain will turn their attention to Kevin De Bruyne and Felipe Anderson.
Juventus hotshot Paul Pogba and Montpellier starlet Morgan Sansone are the other players on their radar.
PSG secured their third straight league title by defeating Montpellier on the road, and are now 1/5 to also lift the Coupe de France trophy.
Payet wants Marseille stay
Marseille midfielder Dimitri Payet reportedly wants to stay at Stade Velodrome beyond the current season, L’Equipe has suggested.
The former Saint Etienne winger has been one of club’s star performers this season, having managed 6 goals and incredible 17 assists in 35 league outings.
And with Marseille chiefs looking to trim down the wage budget, Payet has been heavily linked with a summer exit of late.
However, L’Equipe has suggested that the midfielder feels good at Stade Velodrome and has no desire to leave at the end of the season.
Payet also hopes to continue his cooperation with Marcelo Bielsa and is almost certain to stay if the Argentine coach signs a new deal.
Marseille head into the final game of the season two points behind top 3 positions, but they will secure Champions League qualification with a win over Bastia if Monaco fail to defeat Lorient on the road.
