    Feeling Blue? Sterling sounds out advice

    Chelsea target Raheem Sterling has been enquiring about life at Stamford Bridge, according to The Athletic.

    The England star has supposedly asked international colleagues for their thoughts on what it’s like to play under Thomas Tuchel – as well as the general atmosphere at the West London club.

    The Blues have supposedly made the forward their number one transfer target this summer.

    However, an opening bid of £21.5m has been rejected by the Premier League champions, and the clubs are said to be some way apart in their valuation of the player.

    Sterling has a year to run on his contract at the Etihad, having joined City for £44m in 2015.

    Tottenham pipped Arsenal to the post in the race for Champions League football – and now may do the same in order to land Gabriel Jesus.

    According to The Mirror, Spurs have emerged as serious competition to sign the Manchester City striker.

    And to add insult to injury, the North London club will use their top-four status to lure the forward from under the noses of their bitter rivals.

    Jesus scored eight goals for the Premier League champions last season, but anticipates missing out on a first team place following the arrival of Erling Haaland.

    Mbappe quit threat

    Kylian Mbappe has hit out at the president of the French Football Federation following claims he was ready to QUIT international football.

    The PSG star has revealed he considered retiring from France duty due to vile racism that was directed towards him.

    FFF chief Noel Le Graet had suggested a lack of support after Mbappe's crucial missed penalty at Euro 2020, that saw France crash out, led to him considering retiring from international football.

    Le Graet claimed the 23-year-old was "angry" as he felt that the FFF had not defended him enough for his missed penalty.

    But Mbappe has now hit back on his Twitter account saying it was racist abuse, not the missed penalty, that made him consider retirement.

    Mbappe wrote: "Yes finally I explained to him above all well that it was in relation to racism and NO to the penalty. But he considered that there had been no racism."

    French police launched an investigation last summer after Mbappe was allegedly racially abused online.

    He then revealed to CNN in December that the comments were "hard" to read and left him feeling "hurt".

    Mbappe said: "I give my best for my country. I give all I have to make the people in France happy, to make everybody proud, and to have this type of message, really, it's hard and that hurt me."

    FOWL PLAY

    Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has slammed Manchester United's ability to do transfers, saying they could write a book on how not to do them.

    United have been linked with a host of stars this window but have thus far failed to get any over the line.

    Via The Mirror, he said: "United being there in the background – for me – highlights just why this could so easily be another masterstroke for Liverpool in the transfer market.

    "I don’t want to be cruel, but United could have written a book on how not to do transfers in recent seasons. Signing players just because you don’t want them to go to a rival? Check and double check."

    Wink Link

    Everton have reportedly "made contact" with Tottenham over a £20million move for Harry Winks.

    The 26-year-old midfielder was recently told by Spurs that he can leave the club as he is not in manager Antonio Conte's plans.

    Winks started just nine Premier League games in the 2021/22 season – the last of which came back in February.

    Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur were preferred to the Englishman for much of the second half of the season.

    Oliver Skipp will also return from injury in the 2022/23 campaign, while the arrival of central midfielder Yves Bissouma from Brighton has pushed Winks even further down the pecking order.

    As a result, he is expected to leave North London this summer despite having two years left on his current contract.

    "Nunez gives Liverpool something different"

    Speaking on Sky Sports News, South American football expert Tim Vickery has revealed his excitement over Uruguay Darwin Nunez's move to Anfield.

    He said: "It's a fascinating move as he gives Liverpool something they haven't had – he's a number nine.

    "I imagine it's Jurgen Klopp thinking 'we've had three finals [domestic cup finals against Chelsea and Champions League final against Real Madrid] and we haven't scored – we need something different.'

    "So far every step up has been easy for him. This is the biggest step up for him. You look at him and you think he's got all the tools. He should be able to play at the tempo of Klopp's Liverpool.

    "I think this is very, very interesting."

    "He was pretty much an unknown when he made his debut but he has been a sensation. I suspect now he's thinking more about the World Cup than Elland Road."

    "Had his head turned"

    Youri Tielemans won't be at Leicester next season after having his head turned by Arsenal, according to pundit Chris Sutton.

    The former Norwich and Blackburn striker believes the long-running saga linking the Belgian midfielder to the Emirates has put Leicester in an awkward position.

    Tielemans has one year left on his deal and Sutton does not see him signing an extension.

    He told BBC Radio 5Live: "He has had his head turned. He won't be at Leicester [next season]. That's the big rumour, isn't it? [Tielemans to Arsenal].

    "The fact of the matter is that if he wanted to stay at Leicester [then he would have signed a new contract]."
