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 of ways.
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.
Chelsea and 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 the bank.
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?
