Everton leads chase for Dembele

The Toffees shelled out $31m, with a potential further of $6.3m in add-ons, to land England U-21 keeper Jordan Pickford in a club-record transfer deal last week Thursday.

The Merseysiders followed that up with the signing of Dutch winger Davy Klaassen for a transfer fee of $29.8m and it seems the spending is not over yet. According to The Sun Sport, Everton manager Ronald Koeman is in the market for a new attacker, with Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku's future in doubt, and has now set his sights on Moussa Dembele. The French forward joined Scottish giants Celtic FC from Fulham last year summer for just $500,000 and has been impressive since his arrival to Scotland.

The Frenchman scored a total of thirty-two goals in forty-eight matches last season, helping Celtic go the entire domestic season undefeated. Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers does not want to lose Dembele yet but it is understood the Scottish giants will let the 20-year-old striker go if they receive a formal offer in excess of $38million.

Sampdoria keen on signing Ogbonna

Angelo Ogbonna joined West Ham United from Juventus in the summer of 2015 and was expected to emerge as an integral part of the London club. However, the 29-year-old defender missed a considerable part of last season with a knee injury but apparently played the complete ninety minutes in the final day victory against Burnley.

According to Read West Ham, Italian Serie A club UD Sampdoria are showing a serious interest in the Hammers defender and could look to lure him back to Italy this summer. UD Sampdoria are in the transfer market for a fullback and the 29-year-old Italian is reportedly under serious consideration.

Angelo Ogbonna made sixty-five appearances for West Ham United over the last two seasons and has a running contract with the Hammers until 2019.

Acquah ready to quit Torino

According to Calcio Mercato, Premier League side Newcastle United are said to be keen on Acquah and it seems he could be heading to England after confirming that the Ghanaian midfielder is in talks with the North England club.
