We are into the eighth week of the Premier League summer transfer window. There has not been any transfer activity over the past few days, but a number of deals could be on the cusp of completion.
Let’s have a look at the top transfer rumours today.
Top Transfer Rumours:
Arsenal appear on the cusp of selling Lucas Torreira after agreeing a deal worth £22m (€24m) with Serie A side Torino. The Uruguay international is close to a reunion with manager Marco Giampaolo, whom he worked under at Sampdoria between 2015 and 2018 (Calciomercato).
Meanwhile, Manchester United are planning an opening bid for Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon. They are, however, reluctant to meet the £27.66m (€30m) asking price and have no plans of including a buy-back option for the Spanish champions (Fabrizio Romano).
Danny Drinkwater could be heading to the Serie A this summer. The out-of-favour Chelsea midfielder has been offered to Sampdoria through an intermediary. Should a deal go through, he would be reunited with his former Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri (Il Secolo XIX)
Manchester City have recently failed with a club-record £92m (€100m) bid to sign Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Gimenez. The Spanish giants are adamant that the Uruguayan won’t be sold unless the £110m (€120m) buy-out clause on his contract is triggered (Marca).
Crystal Palace are preparing to hold talks with the representatives of Said Benrahma regarding a potential transfer away from Brentford. The Bees are open to parting ways with the Algeria international this summer, provided their £25m valuation is met (Sky Sports).
