Premier League transfer news: Bale back to Spurs, Umtiti to City and more - December 31
Just. One. More. Day. And then the transfer window finally opens and we have something concrete to show for. Not that we don't already as Liverpool sneaked Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for a world record fee.
While we might not have signings in that range in this window, we could expect some big signings as the rest of the pack are chasing Manchester City. Although it doesn't look like any club could catch up with them, but there is no harm in trying.
So without further ado, here are the best transfer rumours of the day...
#5 West Ham Mania
Yup. West Ham are well and truly Manchester United’s greatest competitor in this space. There is not a day when the Hammers aren’t linked to a player. As of today, we have three pieces of news for you.
One, David Moyes wants Alfie Mawson so badly that he is willing to let go of forward Andre Ayew to Swansea in a swap deal. Indeed, according to the Mirror, West Ham are open to the idea of letting their £20 million signing leave in order to acquire the services of Mawson.
Two, the Mirror strike once again. According to them, West Ham United are also interested in bringing Genk forward Moses Simons to the club, who is available for as little as £4 million.
Three, and this is an update from a previous rumour. According to Mail, the Hammers have submitted a loan bid for Sevilla midfielder, Steven N’Zonzi, who is apparently willing to leave the club after falling down the pecking order.
