Hermoso nearing new Atletico deal
Atletico Madrid are considering offering a new contract to centre-back Mario Hermoso amid a floury of interest from Premier League clubs, reports Spanish outlet MARCA.
The Spaniard had been rumoured for a move away from the club in the summer but a recent upturn in form has seen him gain admirers from England, as well La Liga sides Real Sociedad and Sevilla.
Hermoso's current deal expires in the summer of 2024, and it is thought that Rojiblancos boss Diego Simeone has given the green light for his renewal, especially given the recent departure of Felipe to Nottingham Forest.
Marcelo in talks with Al-Nassr
Former Real Madrid full-back Marcelo is set for a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo at Al-Nassr, as Brazilian outlet UOL have revealed that the Brazilian is in talks with the Saudi outfit over a potential move.

Fofana and Slonina set for Chelsea summer loans

That's according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, who told his YouTube channel: "David Datro Fofana will have a possibility to go and play as a starter. It is an idea of the club to send Fofana on loan. He had proposals from Galatasaray and OGC Nice but the player was not keen. Gabriel Slonina is now with the squad but the expectation is for him in the summer to have an opportunity to play regularly out on loan”.
Slonina's loan at MLS club Chicago Fire came to an end at the turn of the year, while Fofana has already made three appearances for the Blues following his January move from Molde.

Man Utd and Newcastle in race for Frimpong
Manchester United and Newcastle are thought to be locked in a race for Bayer Leverkusen full-back Jeremie Frimpong this summer, according to Ben Jacobs in his exclusive CaughtOffside column.
United are still hoping to sign Diogo Dalot to a new deal but are yet to see any progress, meaning Frimpong is an option if those talks break down.

Fernabahce finalising Lucas Moura deal
Super Lig 1 side Fernabahce are in advanced talks to sign Tottenham forward Lucas Moura on a free transfer when his contract expires in the summer, Turkish outlet Sabah reports.

Vlahovic's agent blocked January transfer to Man Utd
Juventus had accepted a bid from Manchester United worth between €100m (£88.8m) and €120m (£106.5m) for striker Dusan Vlahovic in January, reports Spanish outlet AS.
However, the player's agent is believed to have brought initially positive talks to a halt, thus blocking the move from going ahead.
Vlahovic joined the Vecchia Signora in January 2022 in a £72m deal and has gone on to score 10 goals in 21 appearances this campaign.
However, given the financial situation Juve find themselves in, the Serbian's sale could have eased some of the economic pressure off the Turin club, with Chelsea thought to also be interested.
