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

Barcelona rejected two Tottenham players in Emerson sale

The Catalan club turned a chance to sign Tanguy Ndombele and Serge Aurier as part of a transfer swap deal with Tottenham for Emerson Royal.

Before completing a £25 million deal for Emerson, Spurs offered Ndombele and Aurier to Barcelona. However, the debt-ridden Blaugrana had no interest. [Fabrizio Romano, via Sunday Express]

Haaland won’t rush a decision about his future

Despite heavy transfer interest across Europe, Erling Haaland won’t rush into any decision. The Norway international has a big year ahead of him as his £70 million release clause at Borussia Dortmund kicks in during 2022.

Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint Germain are all reportedly interested. [90 Min]

Flamengo sign David Luiz

 The former Arsenal and Chelsea defender has joined Flamengo on a free transfer.

David Luiz has signed a one-and-a-half-year deal until December 2022 at the Brazilian club. The veteran defender’s priority is to help Flamengo win the Brazilian Serie A title.

Could Boca Junior sign Alves?

Dani Alves is a free agent after ending his Sao Paulo contract midway through the 2021 Brazilian league season.

Dembele set to extend Barcelona contract

Barcelona are ‘convinced’ that Ousmane Dembele will agree to extend his contract, which expires in 2022.

Rather than test his luck as a free agent in next summer’s transfer window, Dembele intends to ‘defend Barcelona’s shirt’. The Blaugrana, therefore, have designed a new intensive program to help the injury-hit Frenchman fulfill his potential at Camp Nou [Marca]
