Barcelona want a right-back and a Xavi replacement, Manchester United and Arsenal need strikers, while Juventus want a winger – the chase is on

After Manchester United’s pursuit of Antoine Griezmann ran into a brick wall, their search for a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic took them to Real Madrid’s Álvaro Morata. The Spanish striker remains top of their list but United have also been keeping an eye on a young Italian who looks destined to enjoy a wonderful career. Strong and relentless, Belotti has scored 40 goals in 73 appearances since joining Torino two years ago and Milan have already seen one bid turned down for the 23-year-old Italy international. Torino are holding out for as much money as possible, though they would not mind hanging on to Belotti for another season.

How a Scottish manager working in Wales ended up in charge of Juventus

Billy Chalmers made the unlikely move from Ebbw Vale to Juventus in 1948. He didn’t stay for long but his record in the Turin derby secured his place in history

By Kevin Nolan for The Gentleman Ultra, of the Guardian Sport Network

Matt Busby, Ally McCoist, Alex Neil and Lee McCulloch are just a few of the famous (and not so famous) footballers who have emerged from the small Scottish town of Bellshill.

In his 21 years as a player, Chalmers represented no fewer than seven different clubs. Three of them – Newcastle United, Grimsby Town and Notts County – played in black and white stripe jerseys.
