Despite Can, 31, making 37 Serie A appearances for the Turin last season – reports claim head coach Maurizio Sarri would happily offload him.

Tuttosport claim Juventus would like to sign Ivan Rakitic and want to know if Barcelona would consider a swap deal.

Schira tweeted: “Matteo Darmian has asked the transfer to Manchester United. He wants to return to Italy. Juventus, Fiorentina and Inter are interested in him.

21:00 UPDATE: Mariano Diaz latest

Roma are lining up a move for Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz.

And Roma have made Diaz, 26, their top target if RB Leipzig seal the deal for Schick, says journalist Matteo Pedrosi.

20:30 UPDATE: Neymar cryptic post

Neymar has taken to Instagram to post a cryptic message amidst transfer speculation linking him with moves to Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The Brazilian has been receiving a lot of hatred from PSG fans, who displayed banners at their home clash with Nimes which told the attacker to leave the club.

And Neymar has this afternoon uploaded a quote to his Instagram story which read: “The problem is that people are hated when they are sincere and they are loved when they are false.”

The cryptic message is that Neymar feels he is coming under fire for letting his feelings about wanting to leave be known.

However, there is a stronger, underpinning tone that he will not back down in his attempts to exit.

But while Barcelona put a deal for Suarez on the table, it’s reportedly not something that interests Juventus.

18:30 UPDATE: Neymar limit

Barcelona have hatched a new plan to sign Neymar.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport, the Catalan giants want Neymar on a season-long loan before paying a maximum of £146million for the 27-year-old Brazilian international.

However, the Spanish champions will not cough up the cash until the summer of 2020 having already spent big on Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann and Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Sport claim Barcelona believe this offer will prove their interest is genuine and the two parties will enter negotiations “in the coming hours”.

17:30 UPDATE: Eriksen interested

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen will only leave Spurs if an offer comes from either Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus, according to ESPN FC.

The Dane has made it clear to Tottenham that he wants to leave North London, and won’t be renewing his contract.

A number of teams are reportedly interested in signing Eriksen, but Spurs haven’t received any bids that match their valuation.

The midfielder made a shock revelation in June that he wanted to leave the club, but is still a Tottenham player, with just two weeks left of the European transfer window.

17:00 UPDATE: Arsenal’s January plan

Arsenal could be busy in the January transfer market.

That’s according to Arsenal director Josh Kroenke, who told BBC journalist David Ornstein that the Gunners plan to be “proactive” when the window opens again.

“As for January, I don’t want to get ahead of ourselves,” Kroenke said.

“We’ve got to evaluate some things in the short term and figure out where we might need to address going forward, so when January does roll around we’re going to be proactive again.”

16:30 UPDATE: Man Utd plan £120k talks

Manchester United are looking to tie defender Eric Bailly to a new deal at Old Trafford after a summer of speculation over his future.

Bailly, 25, is out of contract in June 2020 and will therefore be eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with clubs outside of England.

The Ivory Coast defender, who currently earns £120,000 per week at United, picked up a medial knee ligament injury and will not return to action until January.

But The Sun claim United chiefs are planning for the future and would like to sit down with former Arsenal and Tottenham target Bailly and extend his contract.

16:00 UPDATE: Neymar twist

Real Madrid are reportedly favourites in the battle to sign Neymar.

Barcelona were believed to be in the driving seat to snare the Brazilian’s signature, with Neymar’s preference being the Nou Camp.

However, ESPN claim Paris Saint-Germain will reject Barcelona’s imminent offer to take the 27-year-old on loan with an obligation to buy next summer.

The Sun add that PSG’s desire to recoup most of their £200million investment gives new hope to Real Madrid, who reportedly have the ‘financial clout’ to pay Neymar’s £675,000-a-week wages.
