Several big clubs like Chelsea, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid, among others, have also found themselves being spoken about when it comes to today's transfer rumours.
Amidst all the chaos created by the rumour mills, here is a look at some of the day's top transfer rumours, news and updates:
Chelsea plan staggering offer for Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi
Chelsea have begun the season in excellent fashion as they currently sit 2nd on the Premier League table, just 2 points adrift of table-toppers Manchester City. A lot of Chelsea's success can be attributed to Eden Hazard and the sizzling form that he has been in.
But, with Alvaro Morata continuing to be inconsistent, Chelsea have been forced to determine potential transfer targets for the forward department, and have reportedly identified Inter Milan's 25-year-old captain, Mauro Icardi, as the best option.
Icardi has already scored 9 goals in 12 matches across all competitions for Inter this season, and could be the perfect prolific striker Chelsea seem to be in desperate need of.
According to reports from Calciomercato, the Blues and manager, Maurizio Sarri, are reportedly serious about signing Icardi and are believed to be planning to make a staggering offer of around €100 million for the Argentinian.
