Keep reading for all the details.
Arsenal will be the subject of a £1.5 billion takeover bid from a Middle East group "within the next few weeks," according to the Daily Telegraph.
According to the report, the group did not wish to be identified but plans to buy out Arsenal's majority shareholder Stan Kroenke. It would be a world-record bid for a football club, with funds coming from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
The cash offer would buy 100 percent of the club and pay off debts of more than £250 million.
Arsenal was valued at £731 million in April 2011.
Kroenke has "no intention" to sell, according to The Guardian.
Paris Saint-Germain want to sign manager Jose Mourinho and attacker Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mirror.
PSG, owned by the Qatari royal family, have invested heavily in the squad in recent seasons, with the goal of joining Europe's elite. Mourinho, 50, joined Real Madrid in 2010 and has won the European title with Porto and Inter Milan. Ronaldo, 28, was the world's most expensive signing, costing Real Madrid £80 million in 2009.
PSG currently lead France's Ligue 1 and remain alive in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.
Real Madrid are set to bid on Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker, according to the Sunday People (via Sunday Mirror).
According to the report, Real have monitored Walker for the last 18 months. He would potentially replace full-back Alvaro Arbeloa.
Spurs reportedly value Walker around £15 million. He signed a five-year contract less than a year ago.
Former England manager Fabio Capello is being considered as a short-term option replacement for Rafa Benitez at Chelsea, according to the Sunday Mirror.
Capello currently manages Russia's national team. Benitez is Chelsea's interim manager and has confirmed he will leave the club at the end of the season. He recently lashed out at Chelsea's fans, who have demonstrated against him since he took the job in November.
Capello's role at Chelsea would be similar to that of Guus Hiddink in 2009.
Meanwhile, the Daily Star Sunday is linking Chelsea with Juventus manager Antonio Conte.
Galatasaray president Unal Aysal says Burak Yilmaz is worth €40 million (via Goal.com).
Yilmaz, 27, joined Gala from Trabzonspor in 2012. He has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season, including six in his last five matches.
Aysal said Galatasaray have not received any offers for Yilmaz but compared the Turkish international favorably to Atletico Madrid's Colombian forward Radamel Falcao.
"Burak is a very valuable star for us. If, however, we are talking about Falcao being worth €55 million, then my player is €40m," he said.
