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

Real Madrid to trade 3 players for Mbappe?

After passing on a chance to sign Kylian Mbappe in 2017, Real Madrid appear ready to finally make another transfer move. The Spanish giants may not have the required finances, but they could offer Paris Saint-Germain some players to sweeten the deal.

PSG, who are considering selling Mbappe before his contract expires next year, could be tempted into swap deals involving either Vinicius Junior, Raphael Varane, and Casemiro. [Marca]

Have Liverpool found the answer to their defensive woes?

New York Red Bulls defender Aaron Long has emerged as a surprise target. Liverpool are reportedly eyeing up a loan deal for the 28-year-old American, who has attracted interest from England and France. With the transfer window closing on Monday, however, no formal offer has been made yet. [ESPN]

This new report comes shortly after Jurgen Klopp acknowledged Liverpool’s need for another center-back.

Rose on the verge of joining Trabzonspor

Danny Rose hasn’t featured at all for Tottenham since returning on loan from Newcastle. The 30-year-old, who has instead made two appearances for the U-23 squad this season, could now finally end his torrid spell under Jose Mourinho.

Turkish club Trabzonspor have struck an agreement with Tottenham to sign the left-back. A three-and-a-half-year contract offer has been sent to the player and his representatives. [talkSPORT]

The Ramos contract saga continues…

Despite beginning talks for a contract extension a month ago, Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid are yet to reach an agreement. The ongoing saga has naturally raised doubts over the skipper’s future amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

On the bright side for Los Blancos, however, Luka Modric has accepted a 10% pay cut on a new deal. [Marca]

Bayer Leverkusen close in on Gray

The German giants have signed right-backs Jeremie Frimpong and Timothy Fosu-Mensah this month. And now they could be about to make a third signing in Leicester City winger Demarai Gray.

The 24-year-old, who has played just 18 minutes of Premier League football this season, has reportedly agreed on personal terms. However, Die Werkself haven’t reached a transfer fee agreement with Leicester yet. [Bild – in German]

Wolves outcast Cutrone set for Valencia move

Even in the absence of Raul Jimenez, Patrick Cutrone is out of favor and appears destined for the exit door at Wolves. Thus, the Italian is close to completing a loan transfer to La Liga club Valencia for the rest of the season. [Sky Sports]

Cutrone spent the first half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Fiorentina in his native Italy but failed to score in any of his 11 league outings.

Maitland-Niles to leave Arsenal for Southampton?

Ainsley Maitland-Niles hasn’t got his desired role at Arsenal and could now be set for a January exit. The 23-year-old has attracted interest from numerous Premier League clubs, with Southampton being the latest to enter the chase. [Sun]

It’s understood the Saints hope to bring Maitland-Niles over to St Mary’s on a loan deal.
