Latest Premier League Transfer Rumours
Manchester United Eye Pogba Replacement
Rich Jones of The Mirror claims Manchester United have a contingency plan in place, should Paul Pogba leave the club this summer. The World Cup-winning Frenchman has been widely tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer, expressing a desire for a ‘new challenge’.
As such, United are reportedly ‘fine-tuning’ a £70 million deal they have in place for Sergej Milinković-Savić. The Serbian’s agent is flying into England to meet with United chiefs, and the deal is close. However, United will only activate this deal should Pogba leave this summer.
Everton to Offer Player-Plus-Cash For Zaha
Matt Law of The Telegraph writes that Everton are willing to offer £60 million-plus Cenk Tosun to land Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. Palace have registered interest in Turkey striker Tosun in the past, and he could sway the Eagles. However, Everton are looking nervously over their shoulder, with Chelsea also sniffing around for Zaha’s signature. Reports suggest that they could move for the Palace star after serving their transfer ban.
Zaha was in fine fettle last season for Crystal Palace, scoring ten goals in 36 appearances. Though, this summer the Ivorian has expressed his desire to leave Selhurst Park. Arsenal were interested in him but could not muster the funds to land him. Now, Everton could have stolen a march.
Wolves Transfer Rumours
Glen Williams of Mail Online reports that Wolverhampton Wanderers are in talks with Real Madrid over the loan signing of Jésus Vallejo. The 22-year-old centre back joined Los Blancos in 2015 on a six-year deal, but has found game time hard to come by; this would be his third loan spell since joining the club.
After Madrid signed Eder Militao, Vallejo fell further down the pecking order in Spain, and a move away on loan could do wonders for his game time. Wolves have been eyeing a new centre-back this summer, and the young Spaniard could well be their man.
