Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's latest transfer news and rumours roundup. We're just about 3 months away from the next transfer window and things sure are getting interesting yet again.
There's been plenty of talk and speculation, promising to make the January transfer window a lot more significant than it usually is. Here's a quick look at all the important transfer talk from across the globe for the day.
Alexandre Lacazette is trying to persuade Antoine Greizmann to join Arsenal
The Arsenal striker has triggered immense speculation after suggesting that he's attempting to coax Griezmann into signing for his club - Arsenal. According to The Sun, when quizzed about his relationship with the Atletico Madrid striker, he said:
“Our nicknames for each other are Griezzy and Lacaz.
“If Griezzy visits me in London, I’m going to ask him to sign for Arsenal!
"We have a good chemistry and don’t need to talk to understand each other’s movements on the pitch."
Greizmann has been linked closely with a potential move to Manchester United, but Lacazette's comments are bound to intensify any approach by either club as Atletico Madrid will hope to hang onto their man for dear life.
Everton plot move to sign Andy Carroll
After losing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United earlier this summer, Everton have been desperate to sign an equally effective striker to fill in for the Belgian. They have, however, had no luck in the same.
Despite signing Wayne Rooney, Ronald Koeman is still desperate to sign an attacking and strong striker, and is reportedly lining up a January bid worth roughly £20 million for former Liverpool and current West Ham star - Andy Carroll, as per reports in The Sun.
