Atletico Madrid interested in Pulisic


Christian Pulisic looks set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, and Spanish outlet Fichajes are reporting that Atletico Madrid are one of the clubs monitoring his situation.

The relationship between the two clubs following the loan signing of Joao Felix this January is thought to aid any sort of move, with Atletico hopeful to land the USMNT star on a cut-price deal.

Pulisic has fallen out of favour under Graham Potter, and any progress has been cut short by numerous injury issues.

Costa to leave Wolves in the summer


Diego Costa looks set to leave Wolves in the summer, according to journalist Dean Jones.

"I mean, it was always viewed as a short-term solution this one while they figured out how to move forward; it's not impossible to get another year if things were to really pick up, but it's still unlikely that he stays," Jones told GiveMeSport.

The veteran forward signed from Atletico Miniero on a free transfer last September following the ACL injury suffered by Sasa Kaladjzic. However, given the multitude of attacking options now at head coach Julen Lopetegui's disposal, Costa will likely not extend his stay beyond the 2022-23 campaign.

Roma outcast in line for recall after Mourinho spat


Rick Karsdorp is set to come back in from the cold for Roma and could feature in their Europa League tie against Red Bull Salzburg this week, according to Italian outlet Pazzi di Fanta.

The Dutch full-back had a falling out with head coach Jose Mourinho back in November after a draw against Sassuolo, and has not been a part of his plans since.

Leeds Utd target interim manager after failed approaches


Leeds United will look to appoint a manager on interim basis until the end of the season after their approach for Andoni Iraola failed, according to The Guardian.

The current Rayo Vallecano boss had been identified as a target for the job, but he is unwilling to leave his post in Spain.

With moves for all their desired candidates - including Arne Slot, Alfred Schreuder and Marcelo Gallardo all failing - it looks increasingly likely that they will instead appoint someone to try and steer them away from relegation, before reassessing at the end of the season.

Tielemans to Arsenal 'not impossible'


According to transfer insider Dean Jones, Youri Tielemans could still join Arsenal in the summer.

The Leicester City midfielder will likely see his contract expire in June, and the Gunners have been linked heavily in recent transfer windows, though no deal has ever materialised.

Jones told GiveMeSport: "Ultimately, the player now has a big window of opportunity in terms of where he could land next.

"It's not impossible that Arsenal now make their move for him. Arsenal were always against paying a fee for him, knowing that he could be available for free if they could get this far."

Mount tipped for Liverpool switch


Former goalkeeper Paul Robinson has suggested that Mason Mount would be keen on a summer transfer to Liverpool amid recent links.

Whilst both Chelsea and the Reds look as though they could miss out on Champions League football next season, the pundit has claimed this wouldn't prevent any potential deal.

The former England goalkeeper told Football Insider: "Liverpool are an attractive proposition for the player even when they are not in the Champions League. It was not so long ago that they were in the Champions League final.

“I think Mount would see it as a great opportunity despite the recent struggles.

“Liverpool have to invest. I know that the owners are trying to sell the club but they have to invest at the same time. The must protect the club and protect their asset."
