10th July 2017 – Here’s a round-up of all the hottest transfer rumours from today!
Emre Can to Juventus
This particular report comes directly from credible Italian newspaper, Gazetta dello Sport, who claim that Juventus are now actively monitoring the possibility of signing Liverpool midfielder Emre Can. They’ve been flirting with numerous central midfielders over the past few weeks, with Blaise Matuidi appearing to be on top of their shortlist. But with talks proving to be tricky, Juve are more than prepared to switch their attention towards Can, who has gradually improved since joining the Reds a couple of years back. However, Klopp is a huge fan of the German midfielder and it will take a massive, massive fee to steal him away from Anfield.
Kelechi Iheanacho to Tottenham Hotspur
It makes complete sense, doesn’t it? Despite having Harry Kane, Spurs seem to lack depth upfront. Janssen barely convinced anyone with his performances last year, while Son Heung-Min seems to do a lot better as an attacking winger. Now that Spurs are back in the Champions League, they will undoubtedly need more firepower upfront and Iheanacho could provide just that. According to The Sun, this deal could even potentially see Kyle Walker move in the opposite direction, given that City have somewhat struggled to officially confirm the capture of Dani Alves.
Christian Benteke to Everton
Everton have been signing almost everyone in the transfer window this year, but they are justifiably far from ending their pursuit of happiness. Having just sold Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, they are now in need of a replacement. What’s Wayne Rooney for then, you ask? You’d be kidding if you think Rooney is capable of replicating the amount of goals Lukaku bagged for the Toffees last year. Hence, Everton are now looking at Christian Benteke, though the Belgian hasn’t exactly been in supreme form since he left Aston Villa back in 2015. But the Daily Mail claim that Ronald Koeman is confident of being able to bring out the best in Benteke.
Fabinto to Atletico Madrid
This could be a massive coup for Atletico Madrid, given the range of suitors that were reportedly lining up to prize Fabinho away from Monaco. But despite their transfer ban, AS claim that Atletico have successfully convinced Fabinho to join them in what will be a 45 million euros deal. The mechanics of the deal are unclear at the moment – he could either stay in Monaco for half a season before joining Atletico in January, though that could make him ineligible for the second half of the Champions League. Alternatively, he could spend a few months training with the reserves, before officially making his debut in January.
Anthony Martial to AS Roma
The Daily Mirror claim that Italian giants AS Roma have officially enquired with Manchester United on the possibility of bring Anthony Martial over to Stadio Olimpico on a loan deal. The French forward made a blistering start to his United career back in 2015, but struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho in the last 12 months. United though, are more keen on letting him go on a permanent basis with the base price expected to be approximately £30 million. Roma, like most Italian clubs these days, are only keen on a short-team deal for the time being.
