Timo Werner wants showdown talks with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel over his future at the club.
A move back to Germany seems likely as Borussia Dortmund are interested in the 25-year-old.
However, his high salary could prove to be a stumbling block for the Bundesliga runners-up.
Werner’s representatives are set to meet with Chelsea officials in the coming weeks to discuss their future, according to Goal.
Erling Haaland has reportedly met with Barcelona manager Xavi ahead of a possible summer transfer.
L’Esportiu claim Xavi and club boss Jordi Cruyff both met Haaland on a trip to Dortmund.
They hope to convince the striker to join them ahead of Man Utd and Man City.
And Haaland reportedly prefers a move to Spain over England.
Finally, Newcastle are reportedly set to make a £40m bid for Napoli star Fabian Ruiz.
And that’s despite stiff competition from Man Utd, Arsenal and other European giants.
Corriere dello Sport claim Newcastle didn’t sign the midfielder in January due to his precarious position in the table.
But with the Magpies on course to avoid relegation, they believe they can finally lure Ruiz to St James this summer.
