Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the Whisper.
Here are today’s top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Alex Sandro to Paris Saint-Germain
The PSG left-back saga could be coming to an end as they have set their sights on the Juventus star, making him their No. 1 target. PSG are watching closely with a contract impasse between player and club, and with his existing deal expiring in 2020 the Ligue 1 champions could make their move next summer, according to Le 10 Sport.
Odisseas Vlachodimos to Chelsea
Chelsea are one of a number of clubs who have been monitoring the progress of Benfica’s German goalkeeper, and they could look to bring him in to support new signing Kepa Arrizabalaga. Portuguese outlet Record has reported the interest in the player, along with that of a number of other clubs from the Premier League and across Europe. Bayern Munich are among them, and the German champions once considered him the heir to Manuel Neuer.
Nabil Fekir to Real Madrid
The Lyon attacker has continued his impressive form from last season into the new campaign, and caught the eye during his side’s victory against Manchester City in the Champions League. This has increased the interest in him and Real Madrid are now looking to sign the 25-year-old who was close to joining Liverpool in the summer. The European champions will look to make their move in January, or next summer, according to L’Equipe.
Ismaila Sarr to Arsenal
Another player impressing on the European stage is Stade Rennes winger Sarr, who scored an outstanding goal in the Europa League last week. He impressed at the World Cup with Senegal, too, and Arsenal are among those keeping tabs on him, according to the Daily Mirror. Unai Emery’s side want to add to their squad depth in wide areas, and are looking at the 20-year-old who was nominated for the European Golden Boy award.
Lucas Tousart to Inter Milan
The Serie A club are set to do battle with Tottenham Hotspur for the 21-year-old’s signature, after Italian outlet Calciomercato reported their interest. The Lyon midfielder is expected to cost over £30 million but that has not deterred Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio. The player is interested in a move to Italy, and the Milan club will send scouts to watch him regularly throughout the rest of 2018.
