The winter transfer window is closed, but now it’s time to look ahead to the summer! Here are the new rumours floating around Europe’s big leagues and beyond.

Pogba to stay at Manchester United?

In a big turn of events, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is interested in committing his future to Old Trafford, the Daily Mail reports.

For the longest time, it seemed that the Frenchman was desperate to leave the Red Devils in favour of a switch to Barcelona, Real Madrid or Juventus — anywhere, really.

Now, however, Pogba is reportedly happy to either extend his current deal or discuss a new one in order to stay in Manchester.

United’s finish to the season regarding Champions League qualification will have a part to play in proceedings, but it is believed that the 26-year-old is eager to link up with Bruno Fernandes after the Portugal international’s sensational start to life at the club.

Atletico Madrid monitor Lacazette

Atletico Madrid are believed to be tracking the progress of Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette, Mundo Deportivo reports.

The popular forward hasn’t had the best of campaigns at the Emirates, and on the flip side, Atletico seem incredibly eager to add to their attacking options following a disappointing season from Diego Costa.

The Spanish giants were close to signing Lacazette a few years back but couldn’t quite get a deal over the finish line. This time around, they’re willing to put a decent chunk of their resources into making it happen.

Three clubs want Napoli’s Lozano

Three notable European clubs are interested in signing Napoli star Hirving Lozano, Calciomercato reports.

The Mexico international made the jump from PSV Eindhoven for a fee of around €50 million during last summer’s transfer window, but he hasn’t quite been able to make a successful transition to Italian football just yet.

Atletico Madrid are eager to put forward some kind of bid as they attempt to improve their options from an attacking point of view, whereas both Everton and West Ham United are interested in giving Lozano his first taste of the Premier League, provided they both remain in the top flight next season.

Tap-ins

— Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles is seemingly on the verge of leaving the club after being exiled by manager Mikel Arteta, the Athletic reports.

— Crystal Palace are gearing up to make an offer to sign Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi in the summer, according to the Daily Express. The 26-year-old has failed to make an impact in Frank Lampard’s setup so far this season, whereas the Eagles believe they could reignite the flame they saw during his loan spell at Selhurst Park last season.
