AS Roma want Gerard Deulofeu
Liverpool Echo has claimed that Everton want to offload winger Gerard Deulofeu this summer. Ronald Koeman is not a huge fan of the Spaniard and has put him up for sale. AS Roma have entered the race with the player's agent stating that an Italian club is a real option for his client. Earlier in the month, FC Barcelona had declined the chance to sign Deulofeu on a buyback clause worth £10.5 million.
Juventus expecting a £100 million raid from Chelsea
The Italian media has ignited rumours of the Blues toying with the idea of spending a record amount for two of Juventus' first team stars. Alex Sandro and Leonardo Bonucci are high on Chelsea's list of targets with Antonio Conte keen on reuniting with his former players. The Bianconeri are eager to keep the duo in Turin but might be powerless if Chelsea cough up the right amount.
AC Milan preparing a blockbuster deal for Wayne Rooney
Sportskeeda understands that AC Milan are in search of top names this summer to reinstate their place at the summit of the Serie A. Their search has led them to wantaway Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney. The Englishman has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford and is looking for a way out of Manchester. The Rossoneri are preparing a mega contract for Rooney which will see England's top scorer earn £270,000 per week.
Bayern Munich have calmed interest in Alexis Sanchez
With reports emerging from the Emirates that Alexis Sanchez is ready to stay for one more year with the Gunners, Bayern Munich have decided to look for alternatives. L'equipe claims that the Bavarians have now shifted their focus towards Atletico Madrid's Yannick Carrasco and are ready to pay €50 million for the Belgian winger. But with the Spanish club hit with a transfer ban at the moment, it is unlikely that they will sell one of their star players.
Borussia Dortmund's Raphael Guerreiro targeted by French giants
Le Parisien has reported that Paris Saint-Germain have zeroed in on Dortmund's left back Raphael Guerreiro to replace Maxwell. The Brazilian is retiring this summer with the French club needing a stellar fullback in his place.
Guerreiro has been top notch for the German club since his arrival and has caught the eye of the Paris club’s officials. A £30 million bid is expected to be submitted by the Parisians to lure him away from Westfalenstadion.
Tiemoue Bakayako set to undergo Chelsea medical next week
The Blues are set to announce their first signing of the summer in the form of AS Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayako. The midfielder has agreed personal terms with Chelsea and both the clubs have agreed a £35.4 million fee. Bakayoko is ready to sign a five-year contract with the Premier League champions and this move could signal the end of Nemanja Matic's stint with Chelsea.
Arsenal ready to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
In order to reduce the club's wage bill, Arsenal have decided to offload as many as eight first-team players this summer. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is one of them and Independent reports that the Gunners are ready to part ways with the winger. Jurgen Klopp is said to be a big fan of the former Southampton man and is keen on using him as Liverpool's main option from the bench. The Englishman could go for £23 million seeing as he has just one year remaining on his current deal.
Tottenham Hotspur close to signing German starlet
Schalke midfielder Max Meyer has agreed in principle to join Spurs this summer. The Sun reports that a £17.1 million bid will be enough for the Lilywhites to prise the youngster away from Germany. Pochettino was close to signing him last summer but Schalke were not keen on selling their prized asset.
FC Barcelona ready to use another trick to sign Ousmane Dembele
Metro claims that the Catalans are ready to do anything in order to get Ousmane Dembele to wear the famous Blaugrana shirt. But Borussia Dortmund are keen on keeping the youngster who has spent just one season with them since his move from Rennes. Barcelona, therefore, have come up with the suggestion that Dembele stays with his current club for another year before moving to Spain in a world record deal next summer.
Real Madrid to send budding talent on loan next season
AS claims that the Los Blancos have decided to send talented midfielder, Marcos Llorente away on a season-long loan. Real Betis are leading the race along with Villarreal who are also monitoring the situation.
