The Seagulls will have to see off competition from Arsenal, Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco if they want to secure Trossard’s sought-after signature, but the prospect of consistent top-tier minutes could swing the versatile midfielder in favour of lining up in the blue and white strip of Brighton come August.'

'Jamie Redknapp has backed Frank Lampard to replace Maurizio Sarri as the new Chelsea boss.   It’s reported that the Italian has agreed to depart the Europa League champions for Juventus after just one season in the capital. Blues legend Lampard guided Derby County to the Championship play-off final in his first season as a manger which has seen him become one of the favourites to take the role if Sarri does move on. \t \t \t \t \t \t \t And Redknapp, who is set to take to the Stamford Bridge Pitch for Sunday’s Soccer Aid for Unicef 2019 match, feels his cousin would rise to the challenge. “ If they were to go for Frank I think it would be a great decision, ” he said. “ He’s a hero, a god here, and I think whoever comes into this job next needs to be given time . “ They’ve lost their best player (Eden Hazard), got a transfer embargo and I think the club almost have to state that, whatever happens, they’ve got to be given time to build the time . “ I think if Frank’s given time when he comes in it would be a great opportunity for both. ” Chelsea are gone to the Court of Arbitration to challenge their two window FIFA transfer ban as they look to replace Hazard, who sealed a move to Real Madrid last week. Despite being restricted in the market, it’s thought the West London side’s hierarchy would still demand a top-four finish next term. And although he’s heading into just his second year as a number 1, Redknapp feels the step-up wouldn’t be too soon for Lampard. “ Is it the right time? When is the right time? This is his club, this is where he’s loved, the fans idolise him and he’s so bright that he’ll figure it out, ” he said. “ Jody Morris I’m sure would come with him – I think that would be a really good team. There’s no magic wand and it (failure to finish in the top-four) wouldn’t be because of Frank’s experience it would be because they’ve lost their best players. ” The former Liverpool, Tottenham and England midfielder was talking ahead of Sunday’s Soccer Aid for Unicef match. Jamie is playing for Sam Allardyce and Susanna Reid’s England team against a Word XI side co-managed by Reid’s fellow Good Morning Britain presenter, Piers Morgan, and his dad, Harry Redknapp. And the 45-year-old, who won 17 international caps in his career, is looking forward to getting back out on the pitch. “ Every night I dream about football one way or another. My knees aren’t what I’d like them to be but, whether it’s still 30mins or so, it’s still great fun. “ After last year I said ‘that’s me, I’m done’, but it was so much fun that when I got the phone call asking me to do it again I just said ‘go on then ‘. “ It’s such a great week. Obviously I’ve played with some of the ex-footballers before but you also meet some of the celebrities, the actors, people like that .

Le Aquile usually play with three at the back with attacking wingbacks, and with Darmian having been deployed as a left-back, right-back and centre-back in his time at United, it is uncertain where he would fall into their plans.

'Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren could be offered a way out of the club as AC Milan consider a bid for the Croatian, according to the Daily Mail . The Italian giants are in desperate need for reinforcements at the heart of defence with Cristian Zapata allowed to leave on a free transfer and concern over Mattia Caldara’s injuries. After an underwhelming fifth-placed finish last season, Milan are planning an overhaul of their squad and are reportedly eyeing Lovren as part of their rebuilding plans. \t \t \t \t \t \t \t The 29-year-old only made 13 Premier League appearances last term, as Jurgen Klopp opted for the central defensive partnership of Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.

The former Lyon defender wrote his name into the club’s history books in April 2016, when his last-minute winning goal against Borussia Dortmund at Anfield sent Liverpool into the Europa League semi-final. After making his debut for his country in 2009, Lovren has made 51 appearances for Croatia and helped them reach last summer’s World Cup final. If the ex-Saints star does depart it would leave the Anfield club with just three established centre-backs in Van Dijk, Matip and Joe Gomez.'
