New Chelsea banner in sight for Fofana…

This is definitely the hot issue at the end of the transfer window. After two offers, already fabulous, in recent days, the Blues will make a new proposal to Leicester for Wesley Fofana. Fabrizio Romano announces that the Londoners will draw in the week. The Independent adds that only a dozen million euros would be missing to bend the 2016 English champions. Brendan Rodgers and the Foxes have however several times announced that they do not want to give up the former Stéphanois, regardless of the price.

  • Our opinion : Leicester can resist, but a new XXL offer close to the expectations of its leaders could end up paying…

Tuchel gets annoyed: why is it stuck at Chelsea?

Barely activated, the Morata track already to be forgotten for Manchester United?

The Marko Arnautović track abandoned, the Red Devils would now be interested in Alvaro Morata (30 years old). ESPN reports a growing interest from the Mancunian club for the Spanish international. But the file looks badly embarked, even impossible to negotiate. Indeed, the player seems determined to win with the Colchoneros and has also made a big summer preparation.

  • Our opinion : Yes, the Morata track is already to be forgotten for MU. The Spaniard has fought since the beginning of the summer to find a place in the eyes of Diego Simeone. And the message was received by the latter, who seems satisfied with the return of the Madrid player.

The always well-informed Gerard Romero, Blaugrana specialist, announces an agreement between FC Barcelona and Manchester City for the transfer of the Portuguese international. The transfer could be around 55 million euros.

  • Our opinion : The departure of Bernardo Silva would be a huge blow for the Citizens. But the latter could recover cash to attract a certain Lucas Paqueta …

Šeško before Werner, Leipzig hits hard

It definitely went very, very quickly, as often between Leipzig and Salzburg. This Tuesday, the German club formalized the arrival of Benjamin Šeško, from June 2023. The 19-year-old Slovenian striker will stay in Austria in 2022-2023 to harden up. At the same time, the Roten Bullen have formalized the return of Timo Werner to the side of the Red Bull Arena. As announced, the German international agrees for four years and 20 million euros (excluding bonuses).
  • Our opinion : A gala duo full of promise for Leipzig. Between a Werner in search of recovery and a talented Šeško, stolen for « a pittance », the Roten Bullen are armed on the front of the attack for the next few years.

Tottenham rejected for Zaniolo

The Zaniolo file is getting tougher for Spurs, as expected. In its current edition, the Times confirms what was unfortunately predictable with a London offer rejected by Roma. The daily speaks of a loan with a purchase obligation set at 23.5 million euros for the 23-year-old Italian international. A few weeks ago, Juventus made a similar but higher offer.

  • Our opinion: We will have to whip to snatch Zaniolo from the Wolf. The young Giallorosso should, unless surprised, continue the adventure in the Eternal City.

Return to favor of the « SMS » track at Manchester United

Well, well, here is the Sergej Milinkovic-Savic rumor at the Red Devils. Tracked by MU a few years ago, the Serbian international midfielder could see the English return to the charge as explained by the very serious The Telegraph. The Republica even announces an offer of 68 million euros from the Mancunian club. Enough to bend Claudio Lotito, the boss of Lazio?

But the Serb is not the only one in the Mancunian shortlist. AS reports that Manchester are also targeting Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodriguez. The Argentinian international (24 caps, 1 goal) still has two years of contract in Andalusia.

  • Our opinion : This end of the transfer window is definitely difficult to read on the Manchester side, as very often unfortunately.

Pino has Premier League touches

Nugget of the Yellow Submarine, winger Yeremi Pino (19) could leave his training club before the end of the transfer window. AS reveals that the Spanish international (4 caps, 1 goal) would be followed very closely by Arsenal, Liverpool and several other clubs across Europe. Villarreal need cash and an offer between 40 and 50 million could be « enough » to convince the Spaniards.

  • Our opinion : Liverpool and Arsenal already have equipment up front. The arrival of Pino could however make it possible to apprehend the future very serenely.

The Hammers draw for their defense. And as already foreseen on Monday by the London Evening StandardThilo Kehrer (26) is West Ham’s priority by the end of the transfer window. Sky Sports confirms the trend and announces a first offer from the Londoners for the German international.

  • Our opinion : Like Sevilla a few weeks ago, West Ham are a very good option for the German international. In London, the former Schalke player should get a lot more playing time.

Paris, towards a perfect transfer window?

Monaco continues to work on the Soumaré track…

The track has been active for several weeks. Interested in Boubakary Soumaré, the Principality club is not letting go of the former Lille resident, under contract until 2026 with Leicester, as confirmed The Team this Tuesday. The midfielder is Philippe Clement’s priority but the Monegasques are yet to meet the Foxes’ demands, estimated at €20m. ASM is also studying alternatives and has targeted André-Frank Zambo Anguissa (Naples) in particular.

  • Our opinion : Monaco should achieve its goals in this matter. The European future of the Principality club will be decisive for the progress of the negotiations.

…and think of Bailly

Sarr might not be the only defender to land on the Rock. According to information from The Team, the Principality club would also target Eric Bailly. The Ivorian international from Manchester United would even be AS Monaco’s priority for the next few days. The daily announces that the Monegasques would like to be loaned the former Villarreal player while the Red Devils would prefer a sale.

  • Our opinion : Disasi, Maripán, Badiashile and soon Sarr, the Rock club is well supplied in central defense. This file will once again depend on qualification for the Champions League.

Sirigu to Naples… in a role of understudy?

One on two. In search of two goalkeepers for this summer, Napoli are on the way to doing 50% of the way. the Corriere dello Sport and Gianluca Di Marzio announce an agreement between the Partenopei and Salvatore Sirigu (35). The former Parisian has been free since leaving Genoa, where he played 36 Serie A matches last season. He should take on the costume of substitute goalkeeper or « number 1 bis ». The Italian club is still targeting Keylor Navas (PSG) and Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea).

  • Our opinion : A great way out for Sirigu. Napoli can make a hell of a tandem in goal next season…

Centonze has many courtiers

Relegated with Metz last season, Fabien Centonze (26) was one of the few satisfactions of the Grenats. But the side is still in Lorraine one month before the market closes. According brandseveral teams would follow the right-back’s file, including Villarreal, Atlético de Madrid, OL and Stade Rennais.

  • Our opinion : The former Lensois will eventually find the shoe that suits him for next season. It seems unlikely to see him in Ligue 2 with Metz next season.

Onana is an Everton player

Thing promised, thing due. Expected for several weeks, the arrival of Amadou Onana (20) has been formalized by Everton. The Belgian midfielder leaves Lille and has signed up for five years with the Liverpool club. The amount has not been disclosed, but there is talk of a transfer around 35 million euros.

  • Our opinion : Onana is only 20 years old, but hopes to turn a corner quickly with this signing in the Premier League. With the World Cup in the sights, of course.

Guedes, one more soldier in the Portuguese garrison of Wolverhampton

And that’s ten! This Tuesday, Wolverhampton Wanderers formalized the arrival of Gonçalo Guedes (25), the tenth Portuguese player in the squad. In Valencia for four years, where he was recruited for 40 million euros from PSG, the Portuguese international (31 caps, 7 goals) signed a five-year lease with Wolves. The latter paid 30 million euros (plus 5 bonuses) to secure the services of the winger, author of a big 2021-2022 season.

  • Our opinion : Guedes had made the rounds in Valence and will not be out of place on the side of Molineux, where he will find a group of compatriots. His arrival in England is still intriguing.

Mertens / Torreira, nice double for Galatasaray

As announced for a few days, Galatasaray is doing a double blow at the start of August. The Istanbul club has formalized the joint arrivals of Dries Mertens (Naples) and Lucas Torreira (Arsenal). The Belgian was free of any contract and signed up for one year, while the Uruguayan signed for four years. The Gunners recover 6 million euros in the case.

  • Our opinion : Two interesting reinforcements for the Istanbul club, two more in a transfer window that has worked rather well so far.
