Most of the press surrounded England's cricket triumph against South Africa, but the back pages still supplied a few gems to keep the transfer-rumour mill churning.

Express Sport relay word that Liverpool and Chelsea are chasing two of the Premier League's biggest—and most surprising—stars of the season in Leicester City's Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, respectively.

They also report that China are hoping to lure Yaya Toure to the Chinese Super League.
