While the league season is now underway in England, there is still time to go before the big kickoff in Germany and Italy. Clubs in both leagues still have time to bring in reinforcements and thus dominate the weekend’s transfer speculation.
Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is among those expected to be on the move as Jurgen Klopp seeks to streamline his squad at Anfield, but his destination remains far from certain.
Sport360 rounds-up the day’s transfer speculation.
The Wolves have confirmed negotiations but warned a deal is not yet complete. Director Klaus Allofs urged caution, with details yet to be ironed out.
“It’s true, the player was there and we had a good discussion, but it’s not done yet,” said Allofs.
The Gli Azzurri will invest some of the Gonzalo Higuain money on the Italy fullback, according to Calciomercato.it.
He wasn’t even on the bench for United’s Premier League opener against Bournemouth. Roma are also said to be interested.
The troubled striker reportedly called the Serie A side offering his services, say Gazzetta dello Sport.
Coach Eusebio Di Francesco is said to be unenthusiastic about the idea, even if the Reds foot some of his wages. Chievo are also an option.
The France midfield engine could be the man to plug the gap left by Paul Pogba.
The 29-year-old has been declared off limits but the Serie A champions hope to tempt the French champions into selling. Inter’s Marcelo Brozovic is another option.
Blaise Matuidi, PSG & Unai Emery will reportedly continue together. But, if big offer tabled, it will be considered. https://t.co/ZyXMJmBqF0— Jonathan Johnson (@Jon_LeGossip) August 14, 2016
The Toffees have seen a €25m bid for the Croatian turned down, claim Sky Sport Italia, although La Viola are willing to negotiate.
They have slapped a €35m price-tag on a striker who took Serie A by storm last season, scoring 12 goals in 36 games.
