Manchester City's Tosin Adarabioyo
The 18-year-old - who is also being chased by Tottenham and Everton - is highly rated at the Etihad, but his future at the club could be in some doubt as he seeks assurances over the amount of game-time he will receive heading into the final year of his contract, the Mail claims.
The Hoops have made a handful of bids for the 27-year-old, but none have met Villa's £5m valuation, the Mail reports.
The 25-year-old was prolific for the Bhoys last season, and Rodgers seemingly believes that he has not got the credit he deserves.
"If he had a more Latino name, he would be talked about as being worth 15 million quid, for sure," he told the Daily Record.
Fenerbahce's Robin Van Persie
Davie Provan has perhaps surprisingly told Rangers fans that they have dodged a bullet after Mark Warburton confirmed that they would not be signing Robin van Persie this summer, The Scottish Sun reports.
"The Dutch striker put the tools away when Sir Alex Ferguson retired at Old Trafford. Having starred for Fergie, RVP didn’t kick a ball for Davie Moyes when the Scot most needed him," he told The Scottish Sun.
Rangers manager Mark Warburton
The Gers are gearing up for their first campaign back in the top flight, and Thompson believes their recruitment has been good enough to secure a top two spot.
"Their summer signing policy has been very good. When they make a change to the team, it doesn't necessarily weaken the team. They've got a strong squad," he told BBC Sport.
