Sol Campbell to coach England U21?
Sol Campbell, remember him? Daily Mirror is reporting that the former Arsenal defender is on his way back to football management after being tipped to manage the huge talent at England’s disposal.
He wasn’t a hit at Southend but you could argue that the south coast club was heading for doom but he did just okay with Macclesfield but does that qualify him to manage England U21? There’s so much malaise against black coaches and in the era of Black Lives Matter, he just might ride the tide.
Serge Aurier to PSG heats up
According to RMC Sport, Tottenham Hotspur right back Serge Aurier is in line for a move to PSG as the champions league semifinalists plan for life after Alessandro Florenzi.
The Italian is set to return to Roma in the summer and PSG will not try to stop him, instead they will consider a 10m move for the Ivorian who isn’t a stranger to the Lique 1 club having spent time with them in the past before joining Spurs.
Eduardo Camavinga to replace Bousquets at Barcelona?
Rennes midfielder, Eduardo Camavinga is being touted as the preferred replacement for ageing Sergio Bousquets at Barcelona.

Liverpool inquire about Roma’s Pellegini
One wouldn’t expect Liverpool to turn to any midfielder from the Serie A considering how it ended with a certain Alberto Aquilani but the reigning champions, at least until City are confirmed champions are asking after AS Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini.
The Italian midfielder is interesting Liverpool and he could be the ideal replacement for Gini Wijnaldum who is leaving on a free in the summer and a solid partner for “idea man” Thiago Alcantara.
Juan Mata to Lazio?
Marca and Gazetta Dello Sport are reporting that Lazio are interested in signing Manchester United’s Juan Mata in the summer with the 33 year old believed to have lots to offer the Rome based club.
Age is just a number according to close sources in Italy and despite only starting four times for United this season, Mata remains a target for Lazio who are pushing hard to make European places come end of the season.
