The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.
Chelsea and PSG lodge bids for Hakimi
Chelsea have offered Inter Milan €50 million-plus Emerson Palmieri to complete a transfer for Achraf Hakimi.
Inter would also have the choice to pick three other players from the European champions as part of the deal in Tammy Abraham, Mateo Kovacic, and Davide Zappacosta.
But the cash-strapped Italian champions are only interested in cash offers at the moment. This could prove a problem for Chelsea, as Paris Saint-Germain have already tabled a €60m offer. And Inter expect the Parisians to lodge an improved bid for Hakimi soon. [Corriere dello Sport, via Football-Italia]

Sancho transfer talks ongoing between Man United and Dortmund
Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund held further talks over Jadon Sancho last weekend.
Despite Sancho having already agreed on personal terms with the Red Devils, Dortmund are yet to accept a transfer offer. The German club want around €95 million for the winger. United, however, are reluctant to go above €70m. [Fabrizio Romano]
Sarri eyes Kepa reunion at Lazio
Former Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri reportedly hopes to reunite with Kepa Arrizabalaga in Serie A.
The Italian has become the new Lazio manager and is setting his sights on new signings. And Kepa is one player very much on his mind as he begins his reign in Rome for next season.
Given that Chelsea spent €80 million to sign Kepa in 2018, Lazio feel a loan deal that includes paying half of the keeper’s salary is the most feasible move. [Repubblica, via Lazionews24.com – in Italian].
Will Arsenal make a better offer for Fekir?
The Gunners have expressed an interest in signing Nabil Fekir from Real Betis.
The Frenchman and Betis, though, are not considering parting in the upcoming transfer window. It’s understood that Arsenal haven’t lodged a suitable bid to tempt the La Liga club into a deal either. [AS – in Spanish]
