Rice considered as Fernandinho replacement at Manchester City; Salah could leave Reds

Rice could head to Etihad if Fernandinho leaves

West Ham and England midfielder Declan Rice is reportedly being targeted by Manchester City, should veteran Fernandinho leave the club in the summer, according to The Times.

Fernandinho has been an instrumental presence for City since his arrival from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, and was a key presence as they overcame Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Daily Mail say that there is a possibility of him extending his contract beyond the end of the season. If he decides to leave Manchester, however, City feel that Rice would be their choice to fill the void he would leave.

Currently, Sky Bet have Chelsea as 7/2 favourites to sign the England man in the summer window, with Manchester City out at 12/1 at the time of writing.

Salah considering leaving Anfield

Mohamed Salah is reportedly wanting to leave Liverpool, with PSG interested in the attacker if Kylian Mbappe leaves the club in the summer, according to Le Parisien in France.

The 28-year-old has two years left to run on his current Liverpool deal, and has scored 29 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions this season.

Salah also revealed to Sky Sports that discussions have not yet started over a new contract, saying: "No one is talking to me about that, so I can't say much about that. No one in the club is talking to me about anything so I do not know."

Mbappe, meanwhile, only has one year left on his current contract at the Parc des Princes and PSG are struggling to get the Frenchman to commit to a new deal with the club.

If Salah is to leave Liverpool in the summer, PSG are 8/1 joint-favourites to sign the Egyptian along with Real Madrid, with Barcelona at 9/1.

Conte on Spurs' managerial radar

A report from Corriere dello Sport in Italy (via the Daily Express) claims that former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been contacted about the vacant manager's job at Tottenham.

Conte has just won Serie A with Inter Milan and has reaffirmed his status at the club, but reportedly refuses to rule out a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at this time.

The Italian is due to meet with Inter bosses to discuss his future at the end of the season, after guiding them to their first Serie A title in 11 years.

Conte is now 9/1 with Sky Bet to be the next permanent Spurs manager. Brendan Rodgers is still favourite at 3/1, with Scott Parker behind at 4/1.
