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

Arsenal to swap Lacazette for En-Nesyri?

The Gunners could offer Alexandre Lacazette in potential future transfer talks with Sevilla for Youssef En-Nesyri.

Arsenal have already made an inquiry to Sevilla for more information on En-Nesyri. The club’s manager, Mikel Arteta, has kept tabs on the 24-year-old for a while, as Lacazette is in the final year of his contract.

Since a €20 million move from Leganes in January 2020, En-Nesyri has done a decent job at Sevilla. The Moroccan has scored 32 goals in 82 appearances across all competitions. [Rudy Galetti]

Manchester United settle on their top transfer priority

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels Declan Rice is the missing piece needed for his squad. The Manchester United boss couldn’t say no to a Cristiano Ronaldo return this summer, but he still wants a No.6.

Therefore, Rice may become a top transfer priority for the Red Devils next summer. The 22-year-old was interested in an Old Trafford move recently, but West Ham’s £100 million valuation priced United out of a move. [Independent]

Roberto to sign new Barcelona contract

Sergi Roberto is set to sign a new contract at Barcelona next week.

The 29-year-old and his agent, Jose Maria Orobitg, have struck a verbal agreement with club president Joan Laporta. Roberto could extend his contract by two seasons, instead of one. Therefore, he will be tied down at Camp Nou until the summer of 2024. [Marca]

Messi to join Inter Miami?

Gonzalo Higuain has stirred the pot by confirming Inter Miami want to sign his former Argentina teammate Lionel Messi.

“I don’t want to get in trouble, I don’t know about Leo in Miami. He signed for two years with PSG… The club wants it, we’ll see.” [ESPN Argentina – in Spanish]

Oyarzabal on Manchester City’s radar

Manchester City could attempt to sign Mikel Oyarzabal during next summer’s transfer window.

The Real Sociedad attacker has a £67 million (€78.5m) release clause but continues to prove his worth. His performances in La Liga have kept him on Pep Guardiola’s radar for the past couple of seasons. [Eurosport]

Sterling to join Barcelona?

The Blaugrana are reportedly eyeing a loan move for Raheem Sterling.
