Transfer news and rumours of the day: 19th June, 2016
Clubs in Europe have been quite silent in the transfer market this summer, as players are busy with their national sides at the European Championship or Copa America. Despite that newspapers don’t miss the opportunity to publish rumours and we take a look at the transfer news and rumours from June 19th.
Chelsea are looking to bolster their attack, whilst Liverpool have been linked to a long-term target. Jose Mourinho is also looking to strengthen his midfield and could target a player from Chelsea. Catalan giants Barcelona are keeping tabs on a certain Everton star and their fierce rivals Real Madrid are looking to sign a Premier League star.
- Serie A giants Juventus are looking for a replacement for Alvaro Morata, who is expected to move back to Real Madrid this summer. Liverpool star Christian Benteke has been made available by Jurgen Klopp and is available for just £19m, La Gazzetta Dello Sport reports. Juventus are keen on signing Benteke and it seems the Belgian international could get another chance to prove himself at a top European club.
- Former Manchester City star Stevan Jovetic could leave Inter this summer and is attracting interest from Russian side Spartak Moscow. Jovetic, however, is hoping to return to the Premier League, and Sportmediaset reckon Arsenal are interested in signing him. Inter reportedly want €15m for the Montenegrin international.
- Sunderland star Emmanuel Giaccherini has been in impressive form this season and is also making headlines during the Euro 2016. The 31-year-old has just one year left on his contract at Sunderland and has been linked with a move to several Serie A clubs. Torino and Fiorentina are reportedly interested in signing him, and his agent, Furio Valcareggi, has confirmed to Radio Crc that they’re evaluating several offers.
