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, Graham Potter, Jarrad Branthwaite, Nicolas Pepe, Aaron Cresswell, and Angelo Obgonna gossip, and highlights that have football fans from over the world buzzing with excitement.

Former Chelsea manager Graham Potter may be offered a lucrative job at Ajax, but there may be other teams hoping to appoint him

Ajax are attempting to steal a march on some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Manchester United, by pursuing their interest in Graham Potter.

Potter has been out of work for more than a year after being sacked by Chelsea and is on the radar of clubs in the Premier League and in Europe, as well as being on a list of possible successors to England manager Gareth Southgate.

United would be expected to place Potter high on a shortlist of candidates to replace Erik ten Hag if they sack the Dutchman after the FA Cup final, while AC Milan, Porto and Feyenoord are among the European clubs to have shown an interest.

Should Ajax’s potential move for Potter run into trouble, the door could still open for some of the other interested parties, including Feyenoord, who have placed him high on their list of candidates to replace Arne Slot, who is joining Liverpool, and AC Milan.

Milan’s admiration of Potter dates back to Chelsea’s performances against the Italians in last season’s Champions League, while Porto is understood to appreciate his work.

Manchester United will be challenged by Tottenham for Everton central defender Jarrad Branthwaite

Everton are hoping to keep hold of Jarrad Branthwaite, with interest from two top Premier League sides.

Both Manchester United and Tottenham are keen on the player rated at £80 million.

Everton will attempt to fight off interest from Manchester United and Tottenham in Jarrad Branthwaite this summer.

The 21-year-old defender has been tipped to move to a bigger club after earning his maiden England call-up last month, albeit without making his senior debut.

United and Spurs both have Branthwaite on defensive shortlists which both include Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo and Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi.

Ange Postecoglou has openly admitted he would like to sign another centre-back this summer, and last weekend, he admitted he is planning a complete overhaul amid a drastic downturn in form.

United, meanwhile, are expected to sell at least two of Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire under Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s leadership.

Branthwaite is open to making a summer move and reportedly has a £80million price tag.

Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe is set to become a free agent this summer

Former Arsenal forward Nicolas Pepe will be looking for a new club this summer.

Pepe joined the Turkish side Trabzonspor in September but an underwhelming spell leaves him in search of another move.

The Sun explains: “Forgotten Arsenal flop Nicolas Pepe will become a free agent next month with the £72million dud set to leave Turkish side Trabzonspor.

Pepe, 28, only joined the Super Lig outfit in September after a loan spell with French side Nice.

The winger made just 13 appearances for Trabzonspor, scoring four goals in all competitions.

The Ivory Coast international is now weighing up his options amid offers from the Middle East.

However, Pepe hopes to continue playing in Europe and is waiting to explore his options.

West Ham are preparing for a summer of change

West Ham is yet to tie down Aaron Cresswell and Angelo Obgonna to new deals, with the club also yet to decide on their manager for next season.

Julen Lopetegui looks set to replace David Moyes.

Aaron Cresswell and Angelo Ogbonna are yet to be offered new West Ham deals as the club waits to resolve their uncertain managerial situation.

The veteran defenders are each due to be out of contract this summer but it is thought that both would be open to the offer of an extension.

Whether that arrives, however, will depend on who is in the dugout, with David Moyes’s deal set to expire at the end of the campaign.
