Talking Cock Session: Daily update on the latest club news and highlights

In our latest update talk cock sessions, we look at the latest club news, Bruno Guimaraes, Joshua Zirkzee, Erik ten Hag, and Ruben Amorim gossip, and highlights that have football fans from over the world buzzing with excitement.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain all hope to sign Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes

Manchester City and Arsenal are set to compete for Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.

The Brazilian has also been linked to Paris Saint-Germain, with £100 million his rumoured release clause.

Arsenal and Manchester City are both considering a summer move for Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, raising the prospect of the two title-chasers going head-to-head for the same player for the second year in a row.

Arsenal and City battled for the signature of Declan Rice last summer, with Arsenal eventually winning the race after agreeing to pay a club-record fee of £105 million to West Ham United.

The two sides could be set for a similar situation this summer if they both decide to formalise their initial interest in Bruno, who has excelled at Newcastle since joining the club in January 2022.

Bruno is aware of Arsenal and City’s admiration, while there have also been numerous reports linking the Brazil international with Paris St-Germain.

Bruno is thought to have a release clause of around £100 million in his contract, although that would not necessarily prevent interested clubs from trying to strike a deal at a lower price.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag looks set to leave Old Trafford in the summer

Understand Erik ten Hag is set to leave Manchester United after the FA Cup semi-final win over Coventry at the weekend.

The poor performance means that he has tried the patience of United’s owners and fans for too long, with Graham Potter a potential replacement.

Erik ten Hag is heading for the Old Trafford exit door after losing the faith of Manchester United fans.

Sunday’s embarrassing display, despite beating Championship side ­Coventry in the FA Cup semi-final, was the last straw for many.

United’s hierarchy witnessed the turning of the tide in person as the Red Devils faithful streamed out of Wembley rather than celebrate a penalty shootout win which came after they had let slip a commanding 3-0 lead.

Co-chairmen Avram and Joel Glazer were there with new part-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who has assumed sporting control of the club.

Former Brighton and Chelsea manager Graham Potter is the leading contender to take the job in the summer.

Arsenal are tracking Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee

Arsenal are keen on Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee.

The 22-year-old Dutch player has long been linked with a move to the Premier League with Manchester United, and AC Milan also interested.

Arsenal are keeping tabs on Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster the Gunners attack in time for another title tilt next term.

The Dutch forward has long been the subject of rumours that the north Londoners will launch a bid for him sooner rather than later as they continue their hunt for a lethal marksman in front of goal. However, Arsenal aren’t the only side keen on his services, with fellow Premier League outfit Manchester United and Serie A titans AC Milan also admirers of Zirkzee’s talent.

The 22-year-old has previously claimed that his talent is a product of the “Johan Cruyff courts” in his home country, a street footballer who made it to Bayern Munich.

West Ham are likely to beat Liverpool to Sporting Lisbon’s in-demand manager Bruno Amorim

Sporting Lisbon manager Ruben Amorim could join West Ham as Liverpool’s interest recedes.

The Londoners are said to be willing to offer a serious pay rise to entice the boss to the Premier League.

In-demand manager Ruben Amorim remained tight-lipped as the Liverpool target returned to Portugal after a whirlwind trip to London following talks with West Ham over succeeding David Moyes at the helm.

On Monday, the Sporting Lisbon boss flew to the English capital to speak with the Hammers as they assess the future of the club beyond the end of the season.

And upon his return to his homeland hours later, landing just after midnight on Tuesday, the 39-year-old was met by a swarm of journalists asking about his future.

Amorim could be available to English clubs for £12.8million and was top of Liverpool’s list but is no longer the preferred candidate for the Anfield job.

And it’s emerged that the Hammers have offered the Portuguese manager a greater lucrative package to move to east London than their upcoming opponents on Saturday did.
