The latest gossip and rumours from the newspapers and online:

NEYMAR could be on the move after the Barcelona forward's father told a Spanish court his son is the subject of a £144.4million bid from an unnamed club, putting Europe's elite clubs on alert. The Sun is reporting Manchester United are the frontrunners to land the Brazilian's signature although Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea are keeping tabs on the player.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that VICTOR WANYAMA is holding back on signing a new contract at Southampton. The midfielder has been alerted to interest from north London giants Arsenal and Tottenham and could decide to leave St Mary's.

DIEGO COSTA has emerged as a summer target for Atletico Madrid, according to the Daily Mail. The Chelsea striker, who joined the Premier League club from Atletico, could be brought back to the Spanish capital with the money they received from selling Jackson Martinez.

Leicester almost sold JAMIE VARDY to Sheffield Wednesday in the summer, claims the Football Insider. The Premier League's top scorer, who was born in Sheffield, was set for a £5million switch to Hillsborough until Wednesday's Thai owners pulled out of the deal.

Manchester City defender ALEKSANDAR KOLAROV could make a U-turn on his decision to move to a Serie A club in the summer. The Manchester Evening News claims that the 30-year-old now wants to stay at City because of the arrival of Pep Guardiola.

The money being thrown around by Chinese clubs shows no sign of abating as Jiangsu Suning are preparing a £35million bid for Shakhtar Donetsk's ALEX TEIXEIRA. Liverpool were interested in the defender during January but he now looks set to follow a number of players from top European clubs heading east, according to the Daily Mail.
