10. Sunderland Join Arsenal and Liverpool in Chase for Nottingham Forest Teenager
Arsenal and Liverpool are among a host of Premier League clubs who have been on several scouting missions on Nottingham Forest teenager Oliver Burke, according to the Mirror.
Sunderland are the latest team to become interested in the 19-year-old, though both Tottenham and West Ham are monitoring the Scottish international too.
Burke, who scored twice in Forest’s 4-3 win over Wigan on Saturday afternoon, is valued at £10m by the Championship outfit.
9. Watford and Sunderland Battle for Signature of Atletico Madrid Defender
Watford and Sunderland are interested in signing Atletico Madrid full-back Javier Manquillo before the end of the month, reported Sky Sports.
The former Liverpool man has spent most of his career out on loan in the last few years, but both Premier League clubs are battling to earn the player’s signature in order to boost their defensive options.
Manquillo spent last season on loan with French club Marseille.
8. Slaven Bilic Hints at Move for Manchester City Forward After Reported Loan Bid
West Ham have made an offer to take Manchester City outcast Wilfried Bony on loan for the rest of the season, according to the Mail.
Injuries to Andy Carroll and £20m man Andre Ayew have left the Hammers short of options up front, and Bony is believed to be interested in the move. It may not be too far away either, as manager Slaven Bilic failed to rule out a move for him at the weekend.
He said: “Bony is a good player. But I don’t know what we’re going to do yet. We are going to talk about it on Monday morning. If we get one (a striker), it’s going to be a good one.”
7. Spurs Target Refuses to Play for Dynamo Kiev as He Attempts to Push Through Transfer
Tottenham are again targeting Ukrainian winger Andriy Yarmolenko in the final days of the transfer window, in order to ensure they have enough attacking options for the remainder of the season.
The Sun report that his current club Dynamo Kiev are looking for an £18m fee for the player, and their pursuit may have been boosted after a separate report from Football.ua claimed the winger refused to play in Dynamo’s recent league game with Stal Kamianske.
His reason was because of the club’s failure to hold on their promise that they’d sell him on.
In other Spurs news, they’re said to have rekindled their interest in Barcelona’s Munir.
6. Premier League Quartet Chasing Deal for Young Monaco Midfielder
France U21 midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs, according to the player’s agent.
The Birmingham Mail reports that Bakayoko, of Monaco, has been watched by Italian champions Juventus on a number of occasions. His agent Michel Boli also dropped in the names of Leicester, Manchester United, West Brom and Stoke as suitors of the 22-year-old.
However, the player doesn’t seem to want to go anywhere, given Boli’s comments: “Juventus have seen him play three times this summer. There is also interest from Manchester United, West Brom and Stoke City.
“Leicester City contacted us very recently. Tiémoué’s priority is to stay at Monaco.”
5. Wolves and Liverpool to Miss Out on Brazilian Star After Besiktas Agree Deal
Liverpool and Wolves target Anderson Talisca will join Turkish giants Besiktas in the coming days despite reports recently linking him with a move to England.
The Benfica star, dubbed the new Yaya Toure, will undergo his medical this week beforejoining the Turkish champions on a loan deal. Wolves had previously been linked with a £20m move for the player despite their Championship status, while Liverpool have been long-time suitors.
Besiktas club president Fikret Orman has been quoted by Turkish-football.com as saying: “Talisca will join us next week, the transfer went ahead like planned.”
4. Hull Offer Star Forward Bumper New Deal to Fend Off Transfer Interest
Hull City will make Abel Hernandez their highest-paid player if he agrees to sign a new contract in the coming weeks, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
The Uruguayan scored at the weekend but has been the subject of interest from the likes of Aston Villa recently, even while they’re a division beneath the Tigers. The player’s head may have been turned at Villa’s lure, but Hull have moved to push them out of the running by offering the player a new deal as a reward for his form.
It has also been revealed that Hernandez does not have a buy-out clause in his current contract, denying Villa and anyone else the opportunity to sign the player without Hull’s consent.
3. Everton Look to Seal Deal for Valencia Defender Before Transfer Window Closes
Ronald Koeman is targeting Valencia defender Aymen Abdennour in the final week of the transfer window, according to Deporte Valenciano.
Koeman has already signed Ashley Williams from Swansea with the money received from John Stones’ transfer to Manchester City, but there is a feeling that he’s still looking for another centre half before next week. His pursuit of Sunderland’s Lamine Kone has thus far not gone according to plan.
Valencia are in need of funds to comply with FFP regulations, and are looking for an €18m fee.
2. Manchester United Outcast Refusing to Leave Club Despite Ongoing Speculation
Bastian Schweinsteiger has refused to leave Manchester United this summer despite the fact he’s been banished out of the first team squad by Jose Mourinho, according to Sport1.
The legendary German midfielder has been linked with a move to Galatasaray in recent weeks, as well as a move back to former club Bayern Munich, but he’s said to be happy to stay as it stands even while he will likely not be drafted back into first team contention.
United have suffered a blow in their pursuit of a forward today too, given Gabriel Barbosa’s comments about Barcelona.
1. Man City and Chelsea Alerted as Juventus Look to Sell Swiss International
Manchester City and Chelsea have been alerted after it was reported that Juventus were preparing to offload long-serving defender Stephan Lichtsteiner before the end of the month.
Gazzetta dello Sport have suggested that Juve are ready to cash in on the player in the next week in order to make some money back before his value diminishes too much – given his age and the current point of his contract. Dani Alves has been brought in as the side’s first choice right wing back, leaving the Swiss star in the shade.
Both Premier League clubs could move for the player in the coming days, but the Blues have also been linked with another raid on Juventus today, in the shape of Giorgio Chiellini.
