Gianluca Scamacca at PSG? Maybe.

Sporting director of Sassuolo, Giovanni Carnevali did not hide discussions with said Campos, “a friend. We met during the Champions League final (May 28 in Saint-Denis, editor’s note). We talked about a lot of players, but Scamacca was certainly among the topics of conversation», slips Mr. Carnevali on gianlucadimarzio.com.

Jocelyn Gourvennec and Lille, it’s over (official)
A small turn and then goes away. Champions of France in 2021, the Lille residents have bet on Jocelyn Gourvennec to succeed Christophe Galtier, who left for Nice. The 50-year-old technician, however, failed to ride the wave of the previous season, with Losc failing to a modest tenth place in the Ligue 1 standings. Predictably, the former Guingamp coach and Bordeaux will no longer be on the Dogues bench at the start of the next campaign. The news was made official this Thursday evening in a press release. According to The Teamit is the 49-year-old Portuguese coach Paulo Fonseca, free since last summer and his departure from Roma, who will take over on the northern bench.

Manchester City: Gabriel Jesus wants to join Arsenal
Gabriel Jesus on the way to Arsenal? In any case, it is the wish of the Brazilian international striker of Manchester City to believe the Times. The 25-year-old was made a priority by Mikel Arteta, who left Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Barcelona) last winter and Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) this summer. It remains to find common ground between clubs. Still according to the same source, the Gunners, who saw a first offer of €35m rejected by the Skyblues, will come back to the charge. A second proposal which will, it is said, be closer to the expectations of the English champion, set at just under €60 million. Poached from Palmeiras in January 2017 and under contract until 2023, Gabriel Jesus ended the past season with 13 goals and 12 assists in 41 matches in a City team which has already recruited Erling Haaland (Dortmund) and Julian Alvarez (River Plate) ahead.
