Transfer news and rumours of the day: 28th June, 2016
Welcome to our daily transfer round-up. As always, Sportskeeda have been digging newspapers and websites in Europe to bring the best transfer rumours to you. Manchester United are close to signing a certain Armenian star, whilst reports in the Italian media claim Antonio Conte still has a small chance to sign one of his favourite players in the Serie A.
Liverpool have announced the signing of Sadio Mane on a five-year deal, and their neighbours Everton are ready to spend some big money in the transfer market.
Here are the football transfer news and rumours from June 28th.
- Juventus are looking for a replacement of Alvaro Morata, which means the Italian media will now link them to every financially unrealistic option until they actually sign a replacement. According to Tuttosport, Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is intrigued by the idea of returning to Italy. His agent, Fernando Felicevich is reportedly in constant contact with Juventus, but the financial terms of the deal could be a problem.
Tuttosport say Juventus and Sanchez like each other, but need the consent of Arsene Wenger for the wedding. Well, that’s one way to put it.
- Napoli are keen on signing Polish midfielder Piotr Zielinski this summer, but supposedly their efforts have gone in vain, as the player is reportedly keen on signing for Liverpool. Napoli are ready to renew their efforts to sign Zielinski, and could offer as much as €13m plus €2m in bonuses and Juan Zuniga.
Liverpool are also expected to accelerate their efforts to sign Zielinski, but for some reason they’ve been stalling the deal till now.
- According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Tottenham star Erik Lamela is a transfer target for Inter. The Serie A club have been long-term admirers of the Argentine international, and the club’s vice-president, Javier Zanetti, had scouted him during the Copa America.
