Christian Eriksen's price seems to be rising, while Tahith Chong could be leaving Manchester.

What the papers say

French champions Paris St Germain are willing to spend big on Tottenham's Christian Eriksen, the Daily Mirror reports. PSG see the £14million in-principle agreement between the Denmark international and Inter Milan as "a bargain" that can be bettered, and the Ligue 1 giants can approach Eriksen's camp as there is just six months left on his contract. If he crosses the channel the 27-year-old would compete for a spot in an attacking midfield that already includes Julian Draxler, Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti.

One player who seems likely to be leaving his club is Manchester United's Tahith Chong, whose agent Erkan Alkan has been photographed meeting with Inter representatives in Italy, according to the Mirror. The Dutch winger, 20, is down the pecking order at Old Trafford and his contract expires in June.

Manchester City are keen to keep John Stones for squad strength. Stones has been repeatedly linked to Arsenal but Premier League champions City say there is no chance of his departure. The Manchester Evening News says the 25-year-old travelled to London this week to meet his agent, who also represents former City assistant and new Gunners manager Mikel Arteta. But the paper says Pep Guardiola's side will not release the centre-back due to a lack of cover for the injured Aymeric Laporte.

Arsenal may have accidentally confirmed Eddie Nketiahhas been loaned to Bristol City. The striker spent the start of the season at Leeds before returning to the Emirates. The Sun says Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest were all interested in signing the 20-year-old, but Bristol City appear to have won the race after the Championship club's logo appeared on the player's profile on Arsenal's website.
