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 a sale.
Chelsea have 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 Braut Haaland.
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
Former England number 1 goalkeeper Joe Hart has signed for Celtic on a permanent basis from Tottenham Hotspur.
The former 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.
