VALENCIA HEADING FOR WEST HAM EXIT

West Ham are ready to sell Ecuador international Enner Valencia to Mexican side Tigres, reported ESPN FC.

Valencia, 27, spent last season on loan at Everton and scored just three goals in all competitions. The Toffees have opted against making the move permanent.


FOXES SNIFFING AROUND JAKUPOVIC

Leicester are set to raid Hull City yet again for the services of goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, just days after parting with £17 million (S$30 million) to sign Tigers defender Harry Maguire, according to the BBC.

The Foxes face competition from Watford, now managed by the goalkeeper's former manager Marco Silva. The report suggests the 32-year-old could replace Ron-Robert Zieler as the understudy to Kasper Schmeichel.


BLUES LINING UP MANOLAS

After missing out on Southampton's Virgil van Dijk, Chelsea have turned their attentions towards Roma centre-back Kostas Manolas.

According to Greek broadcaster Sport FM 94.6, Manolas tops Antonio Conte's list of targets alongside Juventus' Leonardo Bonucci and Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly.

With Roma needing to sell to balance their books, Manolas is seen as the more attainable target.
