We take a look at the top rumours doing the rounds on Tuesday 12 February.

Maurizio Sarri‘s fate as head coach at Chelsea is set to be decided in the next fortnight, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The Italian is facing increased scrutiny since Chelsea’s 6-0 loss at the hands of Manchester City, the paper reports, with the club said to be facing a season-defining run of fixtures in the coming weeks.

Manchester United have reportedly set their sights on Paris St Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot. The Mirror says reports in Spain suggest United have emerged as the latest Premier League team to show an interest in the 23-year-old Frenchman, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

The club could face competition from the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham and Barcelona, the paper adds.

Juventus are reportedly leading the race for the signature of Ajax star Matthijs De Ligt, with Chelsea and Manchester United also said to be among the sides interested in the 19-year-old.

The Sun says reports in Italy suggest Juventus have an edge over their rivals as the side have a good relationship with De Ligt’s agent.

Arsenal tried to offload Mesut Ozil during the January transfer window, but none of Europe’s top clubs wanted him, The Sun reports.

The paper says reports in Italy suggest the German was offered to Juventus, but the Italian champions, as well as Inter Milan, were put off by his £350,000-a-week wage demands.

Mohamed Salah is said to have been linked with a move to Juventus. The Guardian says rumours suggest the Italian champions have earmarked the Egyptian as a potential replacement for Paolo Dybala.

Frank Lampard is closing in on the signing of the ex-Celtic star, Efe Ambrose, according to The Sun. The 30-year-old is expected to sign a short-term contract to help the Rams with their promotion push, the paper reports.
