The latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.

Ousted Arsenal star Guendouzi to join Hertha

Despite failed attempts to sign any potential replacements, Arsenal still appear willing to offload Matteo Guendouzi. The 21-year-old is out of favor and has been touted for an exit in these last few months. Although transfers to his native France and Italy all fell through.

Germany now seems Guendouzi’s most likely destination, with Hertha BSC poised to complete a deadline-day transfer. [Mirror]

Mourinho plots one last bid for Skriniar

The Milan Skriniar saga looks to take one last twist as Jose Mourinho looks to land his long-term target. Inter Milan, though, refuse to budge at under £45m for their defender. This valuation is way above Tottenham’s budget, leaving any potential move in doubt.

But with Antonio Rudiger set to head to AC Milan on loan, Spurs are willing to make one last push to sign Skriniar. [Mirror]

Dembele key to Depay’s move to Barcelona

Ronald Koeman is keen to link-up with Memphis Depay at Barcelona and may finally get his wish. Lyon sporting director Juninho has confirmed personal terms have been agreed on but conceded ‘nothing is certain’.

The French giants are willing to accept a €25m bid plus add-ons from Barcelona for the 26-year-old. However, the Catalan club must first sell Ousmane Dembele to pull off the move. [Fabrizio Romano]

Could Palmieri end up at Juventus?

Emerson Palmieri is surplus to requirements at Chelsea after Ben Chilwell’s big-money summer arrival saw him plummet further down the pecking order. Thus, he’s been widely expected to leave.

Despite former Blues boss Maurizio Sarri no longer at the helm in Turin, Juventus are still interested in the left-back. The Italian champions are preparing a loan offer to take him off Chelsea’s hands. [Calciomercato – in Italian]

Free-agent Choupo-Moting to join Bayern Munich

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired at the end of August, meaning he’s a free agent. And it appears he will join Bayern Munich on a two-year contract before Monday night’s deadline. [Kicker – in German]

Arsenal give up on Partey

Arsenal’s pursuit of Thomas Partey appears to have reached its end, with the club almost out of time. They’re unable to match the midfielder’s £45m buyout clause at Atletico Madrid.

The Gunners tried to offer Lucas Torreira in a trade deal with Atletico in exchange for Partey. But the Spanish giants turned them down, although they will still sign the Uruguayan midfielder all the same. [Mirror]

Rudiger’s loan move to AC Milan nearly done

Antonio Rudiger was again absent in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday. Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma instead started in central defense, leaving the German clear on where he stands in London.

Despite interest from Tottenham, Rudiger has all but completed a loan move to AC Milan for this season. Chelsea are happy to sanction it and hope to begin contract talks with the 27-year-old soon. [90min]
