Transfer balls: the Daily Express says Arsenal and Manchester United are after Bayer Leverkusen’s 21-year-old Turkish attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.

Hakan’s also wanted by Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. And he’ll cost £29m.

The Independent says United are “readying a €40m bid” for the player. Its sources is German newspaper Bild.

But over there we find not a single mention of either Arsenal nor Manchester United. Bayer Leverkusenboss Michael Schade tells Bild: “We want to keep Hakan, but with us there is a pain threshold.”

The paper adds: “From a release of EUR 40 million Bayer should be ready to talk. At Bayer we know about the interest of the English.”

The English Press really is full of utter balls. After all, according to the Express, Hakim signed for Manchester United in the summer:
