It’s that time of the season where everyone monitors breaking news and player movements, we bring to you the peak of the bunch as team try to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.
Wayne Rooney joins DC United as coach
That special fight has always been in Wayne Rooney and despite potential suitors in the Premier League, the former Manchester United star has joined DC United in the MLS as a head coach and would seek to build his dream from there.
Rooney asked to leave Derby County after the English side was relegated to League 1 amidst financial struggles and has now returned to the same club in the MLS where he made strong marks as a forward four years ago. Good luck Wayne.
Newcastle want Isak
Following the failures of Hugo Ekitike transfer, Newcastle are looking elsewhere as they seek to bolster their ranks ahead of the new season with the signing of Real Sociedad and Sweden striker Alexander Isak and believe a good offer would land him.
We’re made to believe that the Toons have all the money in the world but how many world class players would love to move to a club that isn’t in Europe? Sociedad will ask for nothing less than £70m for the Swede.
Tottenham eye Depay, Reguilon out?
Antonio Conte doesn’t seem to see anything good in Sergio Reguilon and has placed him on the transfer list with Djed Spence set to join from Middlesbrough.
Memphis Depay is another player wanted by Antonio Conte and Tottenham Hotspur but the Barcelona striker would rather stay and fight for his shirt at the Nou Camp. With the imminent arrival of Robert Lewandowski, a lot could change before the window closes.
Scamacca to Westham?
PSG have been on his case for a long time with no agreement reached but Westham are now throwing their hats in the ring for Gianlucca Scamacca and believe a bid £40m should be able to land him.
The Hammers struggled for goals outside Jarrod Bowen last season and over-reliance on Michail Antonio failed them when it mattered most as the Jamaican only managed five goals across all competitions in thirty games.
Yarmolenko heads to the Middle East
You can understand why West Ham are after Scamacca now, Andri Yarmolenko has left the Hammers to join Arabian side Al Ain on a one-year deal.
Yarmolenko endured an emotional season with the Ukraine-Russia feud but eventually scored important goals which ultimately didn’t land the Europa League and the club also missed out on Europa League qualification on final day.
