What the papers say
Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld is on a shortlist to possibly replace Jerome Boateng at Bayern Munich, according to the Mirror. The German giants are thought to be considering possible moves should interest in Boateng from Paris St Germain create space for a new centre-back at the Allianz Arena.
Arsenal’s Krystian Bielik is near to making a loan move to League One’s Charlton, the Mirror says. The 20-year-old has been hit by injury during his time with the Gunners but it is thought he could make more of an impact as a defensive midfielder at The Valley.
