Despite the transfer window being shut for most European clubs, the foreign media is still speculating about the future of many players.
Our friends at Football Whispers have looked at Europe's top media outlets to see what's making people on the continent talk this morning.
Inaki Williams is a Liverpool transfer target for the summer, but the Reds face competition from Juventus and Borussia Dortmund for the Athletic Bilbao forward. The clubs may have to pay his €50m (£42.6m) release clause if they want to sign him, though.

Inter have agreed personal terms with Wolfsburg left-back Ricardo Rodriguez.
Marco Verratti has dealt a blow to Juventus and Inter, by saying he will only leave Paris Saint-Germain for Barcelona.
Barcelona boss Luis Enrique hasn't ruled out signing a replacement for the injured Aleix Vidal. Their B team right-back Nili has been called up to the senior squad but it does not appear that Enrique sees him as a permanent solution.
Maicon, Jose Bosingwa and Martin Caceres are three players being considered by Barcelona as a replacement for Vidal.
Real Madrid are negotiating a kit deal with Under Armour which would be the biggest in the world - worth €150m (£127.8m) yearly. Los Blancos have been with Adidas since 1998 and are unhappy with their current agreement, which is worth €40m-a-year (£34m), less than half of Manchester United's deal with the German sportswear manufacturer.
Sevilla are chasing Nigerian forward Henry Onyekeru, who currently plays for Belgian side KAS Eupen. The 19-year-old is also one of Celtic's transfer targets, and has attracted interest from Nice, RB Leipzig and Anderlecht.
Paris St-German midfielder Adrien Rabiot says he is no rush to extend his contract. His current deal runs out in 2019.
Bayern Munich want RB Leipzig's general manager Jochen Sauer to take over management of their academy.
Hamburg will offer a new deal to manager Markus Gisdol as soon as possible.
Miguel Layun is open to a move to China before the Chinese transfer window closes. The 28-year-old midfielder has fallen out of favour at Porto since joining from Watford in the summer.
Porto are interested in a summer move for Mexican defender Jair Pereira, who currently plays for CD Guadalajara.
