We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge
from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Isak haunt squares Arsenal against Real Madrid
Real Madrid and Arsenal have needs to overhaul their
squad and with Arsenal struggling for goals last season, it’s imperative for
them to add a potent striker to their team and should Alexander Lacazzette be
denied a new deal, the choice of Sweden forward Alexander Isak.
Real Madrid have needs elsewhere on the pitch but are ready
to rival the Gunners with a bid for the Sweden star who is lighting up the
Euros at the moment; the 21 year old Real Sociedad man can help Arsenal in lots
Nicklas Sule about to sign new Bayern deal
Chelsea were the only team to actually show interests in
Bayern Munich’s German defender Nicklas Sule and were mulling over a bid but
waiting to see what happens with Antonio Rudiger who’s contract is winding down
and doesn’t look like he’ll renew.
However, Sule’s team are talking tough on a new deal with
the German champions although he slipped down the pecking order last season but
that could also be down to his injuries, had the Euros been played last summer,
he’d have missed out.
Nat Phillips want to dump Liverpool
One of the young lads that bailed Liverpool out in some ways last
season is nearing the exit door following Liverpool’s acquisition of RB Leipzig
defender Ibrahim Konate.
Liverpool have lots of defenders on their way back from injury,
from Virgil Van Dijk, to Joe Gomez and then Fabinho, Nat Phillips doesn’t see
himself as an integral part of that set up and he’s already in talks with
Brighton and Burnley over a move.
Let’s see how that develops although Jurgen Klopp wants him to
stay and fight for his place.
70m about to land Hakimi
PSG seem to have won the Achraf
Hakimi race with a groundbreaking bid that Inter Milan cannot refuse in the
region of €70m.
Liverpool had been in talks for a possible swoop on the former Real Madrid
right back but with solid bid from the Paris club, everyone can rest and move
on to the next target, Hakimi will be a PSG player and that’s final!
Martin Braithwaite on his way to Norwich?
His transfer to Barcelona from Levante itself was a shock but with
the arrival of Menphis Depay, Danish striker Martin Braithwaite will be on his
way to the English Premiership if feelers from Goal and Marca can be taken to
Spanish tabloids report that Braithwaite already has an offer in
waiting from Norwich, fresh out of the championship league and needs a solid
figure upfront to challenge Teemu Pukki.
If this happens, will it be a good add for the Canaries? Can he
help them stay up?
