Kevin Malcuit is one of the players Saint Etienne is prepared to lose in order to raise funds for their own transfer targets this summer.

They're aware of the increasing interest in the 25-year-old defender. Fellow French Ligue 1 club Lille, recently had a bid of around $7.76million turned-down for the 25-year-old defender. Saint Etienne “deeming” the valuation of the defender as “unsatisfactory.” According to Tribal Football, Saint Etienne is demanding over $10.3million in order to part ways with their highly rated fullback. With interest high, the Ligue 1 club believe they can hold-out for such a transfer fee, as Newcastle United and West Ham United weigh-up their possible options.

Kevin Malcuit is reportedly said to be ready on a move to the EPL and have caught the attention of several English club sides during St Etienne's stunning run to the Europa League quarterfinals last season.

Chelsea set to ship out Van Ginkel this summer

Marco Van Ginkel, who spent the second stanza of last term on loan at Dutch side PSV Eindhoven, has reportedly been told he's not a part of Chelsea's immediate plans.

And according to Standard Sport, Eindhoven are now eyeing a permanent move for the 24-year-old midfielder, but the both parties are yet to reach an agreement. The Dutch international is said to be willing on a return to PSV but is due back for preseason training at Chelsea this week.

Inter Milan are now looking to “seize” the initiative and, according to Dailystar, Inter will now offer the Croatian international a new deal in the coming week.
