    CROWN JULE

    Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui has rejected a 'dizzying' offer from Tottenham.

    Club president Jose Castro told Cadena Ser: "Julen rang me and told me.

    "He said he'd received offers he'd not listened to in addition to a dizzying one from Tottenham.

    "But he said he doesn't forget things and that he is very motivated here.

    "We believed and believe in him, giving him a two-year contract extension, and I'm sure he will bring much more to the club. You see his ability and leadership every day.

    "Some coaches are more driven by economic factors but Julen is very clear that he is happy here and he even said it would be very difficult to find a better place to work than here."

    GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS

    Bayern Munich are reportedly eyeing Erling Haaland as a replacement for Robert Lewandowski.

    Sport1 claims the Borussia Dortmund is being lined up to take over when Lewandowski’s contract expires next year.

    Haaland is a major target for Chelsea this summer and will command a huge fee, reportedly worth £150million.

    But with a £64m release clause kicking in after the 21/22 campaign, Bayern are hoping to land Haaland for a bargain price.

    Meanwhile, Inter Milan have completed the shock signing of Hakan Calhanoglu from fierce rivals AC Milan.

    The Turkish playmaker has joined Simone Inzaghi's side on a free transfer after his Milan contract expired.

    It is sure to ruffle Rossoneri feathers, with Calhanoglu set to continue at the San Siro but in different colours.

    Finally, PSG are tipped to offer David Luiz a shock free transfer return.

    Marseille and Rennes have already been linked with the former Brazil centre-back, 34, after Arsenal released him.

    And Brazilian top-flight clubs are queuing up for the ex-Chelsea star.

    Now French magazine Le10 Sport say PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is making moves behind the scenes to re-sign the 57-cap defender.

    But it's claimed PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino, plus sporting director Leonardo, are still unsure over Luiz.

    MAN DOWN

    Sergio Ramos has told former Real Madrid team-mates that he is going to join Paris Saint-Germain, reports suggest.

    Manchester United, Manchester City and PSG have all been monitoring the Spain international after his Los Blancos deal expired.

    According to Tiempo de Juego, however, the legendary defender has told other Real players that he is on his way to Paris.

    Reports suggested that Ramos has been prioritising the French giants, who have offered him a deal that is 'financially superior' to what the two Manchester clubs have proposed.

    But if negotiations collapse, then the former Real captain would prefer to join United over City.

    BRIGHT IDEA

    Arsenal are edging closer to signing Ben White – leaving William Saliba pondering his Emirates' future.

    The Gunners remain favourites to land Brighton's England centre-back White, despite having an initial £40million offer rejected.

    Now football.london suggest France Under-20 defender Saliba is 'assessing his options'.

    The 20-year-old has already been loaned back to Saint-Etienne, as well as Nice.

    And there have been few signs that Gunners' boss Mikel Arteta is willing to give him a serious stab at the first team any time soon.
