Latest transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and much more.
Could Mourinho & Lingard reunite in London?
Jesse Lingard’s future at Manchester United is in serious doubt after falling out of favor. He hasn’t started a Premier League game since January and didn’t even make the bench for the club’s opening-day defeat to Crystal Palace.
This turn of events has led Jose Mourinho to target a surprise £30m reunion at Tottenham. The former Red Devils boss is convinced he can revive Lingard’s career in north London. [Daily Star]
Stubborn Chelsea refuse to give up on Rice

However, Frank Lampard is keen to fix that mistake now. The head coach is hopeful of a deal and plans to convert Rice into a central defender. [90min]

The Manchester City boss has now taken his interest to the next stage by formally submitting a €55m bid for the 21-year-old, which Sevilla have rejected. [Marca].
Chelsea strike a deal for Mendy
While pursuing Declan Rice appears to have a hit a dead end, Chelsea can at least tick one box on their checklist in resolving their goalkeeping crisis.
Kepa Arrizabalaga continues to struggle in goal, leading the Blues to launch an all-out pursuit of Rennes shot-stopper Edouard Mendy. And it appears they’ve got their man, with £22m deal in place to sign the 28-year-old. [Observer]
Wolves eye ‘ambitious move’ for Oxlade-Chamberlain
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has struggled to hold down a spot in the Liverpool starting line-up ever since his €38m transfer from Arsenal in 2017. He also now has further reason to worry following Thiago Alcantara’s arrival from Bayern Munich.
Therefore, Wolves are ready to make a move should the 27-year-old indeed fall further down Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order. [Sunday Mirror]
Leeds set to revive interest in Daniel James
16 months after losing James to Manchester United, Marcelo Bielsa is ready to revive his interest in him. He’ll wait until it’s clear where the 22-year-old stands in the pecking order at Old Trafford first, though.
Despite a bright start to his Red Devils career last season, James has fallen out of favor. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s pursuit of a new wide man in the current transfer window has fueled doubts over his future. [Daily Star]
