We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
PSG wraps up Hakimi transfer, Ramos next?
PSG’s quest for champions league glory has driven them to another squad overhaul with strong names joining from here and there; Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi has been announced and it’s only a matter of when before they close in on Sergio Ramos who is a free agent as we speak.
Hakimi had a productive season at Inter, helping the club to their first title in a decade and will bring a wealth of experience to the Paris based club.
Arsenal go again for Houssem Aouar
Arsenal spent a good part of last summer chasing Houssem Aouar of Lyon but it was reported that agent fees stood in the way of the transfer, the North London club struggled for creativity in the first half of the season and only became better when Emile Smith-Rowe stepped up and then Martin Odegaard.
Juventus have shown some interest in the Frenchman but there are lots of financial crisis in Lyon at the moment and the player might go for lower than was quoted last summer.
Griezmann wants premier league move
It’s probably the worst kept secret that Barcelona are in dire situation over financial status and they are prepared for mass exodus of their top earners, one of them that they probably shouldn’t have signed in the first place is already looking elsewhere.
Antoine Griezmann has voiced out his interest in a move away and his destination of choice is the English Premier League, he won’t come cheap and his wages can only be matched by a few, with ridiculous release clause hanging on his neck, any takers?
Coutinho available for 20bucks?
Barcelona are willing to sell Philippe Coutinho for as little as £20m and take an 86 per cent loss, according to reports and it should not be a shock to you if you have been following our updates on the financial crisis at the Nou Camp.
Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018 for a fee understood to be £146m.
He has since struggled to find his very best form and spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Bayern Munich.
Spurs set to submit a bid for Kounde
Okay, we know a new manager bounce can be really exciting but Tottenham Hotspur are really doing good business in the market with Sky Sports reporting that the North London Club is prepared to submit a bid of £50m for Sevilla defender Joules Kounde.
The Frenchman shone brightly in La Liga last season and was part of the Le Bleus team that reached the second round of the European championship where they lost to Switzerland on penalties after they couldn’t be separated in regular time.
