Football rumours: Graham Potter wants Harry Kane at Chelsea
What the newspapers say
New Chelsea boss Graham Potter is keen on bringing in the England striker Harry Kane at Chelsea, reports The Sun via Calciomercatoweb. The report claims that Potter could fund any potential deal by offering the Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku more cash.
Former Tottenham and PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino is scheduled for ‘surprise talks’ with Nice in Ligue 1 and is ‘in line to replace’ the club’s ‘boss under pressure’ Lucien Favre, the Daily Mail reports via FootMercato. The Argentine could return to the dugout after being sacked by PSG in the summer despite guiding the club to league glory.
Manchester United defender Lisandro Martinez and Tottenham centre-back Christian Romero were both stranded due to visa delays caused by the closure of the US Embassy following the Queen’s death, according to the Daily Mirror via TyC Sports. The two Argentina internationals were due to travel to Miami for two friendlies, but delays reportedly meant they could not secure their visas in time.
