Joachim Low, Germany head coach, sniffed he’s not interested because he’s got a World Cup to win.
Still, there’s always the Leeds United job. Paul Heckingbottom got a pointy elbow in the ribs which sent him spinning out the door and the board want Marcelo Bielsa – yes, that Marcelo Bielsa –to replace him.
Sporting Lisbon are hawking William Carvalho, 26, around the Premier League with Everton interested.
There are plenty of clubs interested in signing 26-year-old Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen claims his agent. No names mentioned but that’s because it would have taken too long for him to list them.

Emre Can, 24, is a soon-to-be-former Liverpool midfielder, having tied up a four-year deal with Juventus and only needs a medical to complete his move to Turin.
Ousmane Dembele, 21, is ready to leave Barcelona but only for a permanent move. Which sort of wrecks Liverpool plans for loaning him for a couple of seasons.

Those uppity Hammers are also talking to Paris St-Germain about Javier Pastore and it isn’t a prank call. Apparently, they will pay a fee rising to £17.5m for the 28-year-old who is tired of playing European football it seems.
And finally, Roma are set to replace Liverpool-bound Alisson, 25, with Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, 26. The German was previously linked to Arsenal.
