Transfer news Today has it that Lionel Messi is reportedly ready to leave Barcelona — sparking what would be the biggest transfer scramble of the summer.

Following Barca’s Champions League humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich, it was quickly suggested that boss Quique Setien had been warned of his imminent sacking.

And it now appears that Messi, 33, could follow him out of the Camp Nou after the 8-2 defeat.

The Sun suggest Manchester City will be at the front of the queue, with the Argentinian potentially keen on a reunion with former boss Pep Guardiola.

Chelsea could continue their summer spending by bringing in Brighton captain Lewis Dunk to help shore up their brittle defence, according to the Daily Star.

After signing attacking duo Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, boss Frank Lampard is looking to strengthen other areas of his squad ahead of the new campaign.

And it is thought that Seagulls star Dunk, 28, is keen on a £40million switch given he is a lifelong Chelsea supporter.

One man seemingly going nowhere is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with Arsenal set to tie their captain down to a new contract.

The Gabon international’s future has been up in the air for some time and his current contract has less than a year to run.

But the Metro believe Aubameyang, 31, has agreed a three-year deal worth around £250,000 a week, which will come as a welcome boost to Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.

Football Italia report that Leicester will have to fend off competition from French giants Paris Saint-Germain as they attempt to land 24-year-old Atalanta right-back Timothy Castagne.

The Foxes are thought to be keen on the £18m-rated Belgian international, who played 33 times for the high-flying Italians this term.

One of the summer’s long-running sagas shows no signs of slowing down, with HITC reporting Leeds have tabled yet another bid for Brighton defender Ben White.

Boss Marcelo Bielsa appears determined to lure White, 22, back to Elland Road after a successful loan spell.

But it would appear the promoted club’s latest offer of £30m will be rejected as the Seagulls are believed to be holding out for £50m.

Finally, Wigan left-back Antonee Robinson may now find himself at the heart of a bidding war.

According to Sky Sports, both Fulham and Everton have expressed strong interest in snapping up the US international.

Robinson, 23, had appeared set for Sheffield United after they had a £2m offer accepted last week — but Chris Wilder may now have to fight a little harder to land his man.
