Premier League transfer news: Man United pushing for Bale, Chelsea want their former attacker, and more, 8th January 2018
The whirlwind generated by the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona is still prevalent. The domino effect, earlier started by Neymar's record-breaking move to PSG, could see some more big money moves in the coming weeks.
Once again, the top clubs feature heavily today, but there is also a bit of fight from relegation-battlers, Swansea.
So without further ado, should we begin? Yes? No? Obviously, we shall…
#5 Leicester-Everton and West Brom
Why did I hyphenate two completely different clubs? Because they are linked with one player from Portugal. This said player—Rafa Silva—was once dubbed as the Portuguese Eden Hazard, which is absurd because Hazard was once labelled as the Belgian Cristiano Ronaldo—so shouldn’t Rafa Silva be the next Ronaldo?
Anyways, according to Portuguese outlet A Bola, the player, who is having a mare at Benfica, is generating a lot of interest from Leicester City and Everton. He is currently available on a loan until the end of the season with a £26.5 million buy-out clause.
Meanwhile, West Brom have made a £5 million bid for Trabzonspor forward Hugo Rodallega, who previously played in the Premier League whilst representing Fulham and Wigan, say Turkish outlet Gunes.
