As the summer transfer window approaches, European clubs are already making moves to strengthen their squads. Here are the latest updates and rumors from the world of football transfers:

Milan and Juventus Eyeing Tiago Santos:
AC Milan and Juventus are both keen on signing Lille’s talented right-back Tiago Santos, according to reports from Calciomercato. Despite uncertainties surrounding Stefano Pioli’s future with AC Milan, the club is actively planning for the upcoming transfer window. Alongside their interest in Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee, Milan is closely monitoring Lille striker Jonathan David, who is also on Napoli’s radar. Milan’s positive relationship with Lille, having previously acquired players like Rafael Leão, Mike Maignan, and Tiago Djaló, could facilitate negotiations for Santos. However, there hasn’t been an official offer from Milan yet. Juventus, on the other hand, sees Santos as a potential replacement for USMNT winger Timothy Weah and might pursue the 21-year-old if they fail to secure Riccardo Calafiori from Bologna.

Other Transfer Gossip:

  • Internazionale is considering bolstering their attack with the potential signings of Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee and Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson, as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport. Despite Marcus Thuram’s €85 million release clause, Inter is reluctant to part ways with any key players.
  • Bayer Leverkusen is eyeing Real Madrid’s Rafa Marín, with Los Blancos open to a loan or permanent transfer with a buy-back option. Leverkusen is also interested in Bologna’s Riccardo Calafiori, while Real Madrid is pursuing AC Milan’s Malick Thiaw.
  • Tottenham Hotspur remains a strong contender to sign Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher, despite renewed interest from Newcastle United. Gallagher, 24, is reportedly seeking a move away from Stamford Bridge.
  • Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Adam Beaudry is set for a training stint with Arsenal, signaling potential interest from abroad. The 18-year-old USA youth international has caught the attention of several clubs.
  • Aston Villa is closely monitoring Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville, with the 22-year-old expected to leave if Leeds fails to secure promotion back to the Premier League. Summerville, valued at over £30 million, has impressed scouts after being named the EFL Championship Player of the Year.

With the transfer window still a few months away, expect more rumors, negotiations, and deals to unfold as clubs prepare for the new season.
