Papers: Nasri to OT?

Nasri waits to see if United want him
Samir Nasri has opened the door on a move to Arsenal's bitter rivals Manchester United. The midfield ace wants to know if he is on the champs' shopping list. He said: "I don't know if I will sign a new contract with Arsenal. Discussions are ongoing and we'll talk about it this week. Do I want to go to United? First, we must see if it's real." Nasri, 23, has a £25million price tag and is in the final year of his Arsenal deal. But boss Arsene Wenger insisted: "What is certain is we won't be selling Nasri to Manchester United."

The same paper claim the Reds are also stepping up interest in both Ashley Young and Luka Modric, although Spurs reportedly won't even consider selling their star asset for less than £20m. The Telegraph, meanwhile, claim United will keep tabs on 18-year-old Erick Torres, who is currently playing for Mexico's under-20 side in the Toulon Tournament.

Elsewhere, The Mirror claim Chelsea will announce Guus Hiddink as their new manager at some point this week, although the current Turkey boss will cost Roman Abramovich a hefty fee as the Turkish FA seek compensation.
