We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge
from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Arsenal submits player plus cash bid for Maddison
We can confirm that Arsenal have today submitted a bid of
player plus cash for Leicester’s creative midfielder James Maddison and the
player is said to be Ainsley Maintland-Niles who spent the half of last season
on loan at Westbrom.
Although it is believed that the Foxes playmaker wants
the move, Leicester still hold the aces in the conversation and they will be
expected to give a response in the coming days.
Chelsea want Madders too…
Still on Leicester’s number 10, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea
have also submitted a bid for him and theirs is said to also be a player plus
cash bid and the player is Hakim Ziyech.
Tuchel has grown increasingly frustrated at the Moroccan’s
decision making as evident in the 2-1 win over Arsenal in the Mind Series game
last weekend; although Ziyech prefers a move to the Serie A, fingers are crossed
as to what Leicester will do.
Chelsea go again for Lukaku
Weird as it sounds, Chelsea are
doing everything they can to bring Romelu Lukaku back to the Stamford Bridge
stadium and are prepared to meet Inter Milan’s evaluation of him.
The Italian champions want money
in the region of £130m, they don’t want a swap
of any sort, they are in dire need of money and only money can make them consider
tabled two bids already, both rejected but Inter is braced to receive another
one as Chelsea see the former United striker as a cheaper alternative to Erling
Kane absent again, City bid pending?
It’s already getting messy at Tottenham as club’s
inspirational striker Harry Kane has failed to show up in training for the
second day running, prompting questions from the football circle around a
potential bid from Manchester City.
The Cityzens are already expected to land Aston Villa
playmaker Jack Grealish, if they are able to add Kane to the mix to solve
striking issues they just might become the champions elect even before the
league starts again.
Hart off to Celtic
England number 1 goalkeeper Joe Hart has signed for Celtic on a permanent basis
from Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester City and Burnley shot stopper lost his place as England’s undisputed
number one when Pep Guardiola arrived at Manchester City and couldn’t get his
form back on track ever since; he has now signed for Celtic and will look to
dig again for reckoning.
