The European summer transfer window may still be a while away, but the rumor mill is already buzzing with potential moves and player gossip. Here’s the latest on the transfer front:

Valuation for Brentford’s Toney Set at £40m

Brentford striker Ivan Toney has caught the attention of several Premier League clubs, with his valuation reportedly set at around £40 million. Despite previous rumors suggesting a much higher price tag, this figure has sparked significant interest in the 28-year-old England international.

West Ham United has shown interest in Toney, although no concrete move has materialized yet. Additionally, Chelsea and Arsenal are closely monitoring the striker ahead of the summer transfer window. With just a year left on his contract, Toney is expected to depart Brentford, as the club is unwilling to risk losing him on a free transfer.

Toney’s suspension earlier in the season due to betting offenses didn’t deter his impact upon his return, with four goals and an assist in 13 Premier League appearances. His recent international debut for England further highlights his growing stature in the game.

Latest transfer rumours

  • Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on Bayer Leverkusen wing-back Jeremie Frimpong. Valued at £34m, the Dutchman could be a target for Premier League clubs looking to bolster their defensive options or utilize him in midfield.
  • Aston Villa has set its sights on Internazionale wing-back Denzel Dumfries, with Inter open to offers above €30m. However, Dumfries, currently focused on clubs vying for domestic and European glory, hasn’t shown immediate interest in Villa.
  • Sporting CP’s Viktor Gyökeres has identified Arsenal as his preferred destination this summer, despite Chelsea’s rumored interest. Negotiations may hinge on Sporting’s €100m release clause, with Arsenal seeking to lower the initial payment.
  • Tottenham Hotspur is in the market for a striker, with Feyenoord’s Santiago Giménez emerging as a priority target. Talks have been ongoing, with Genoa’s Albert Gudmundsson also under consideration, drawing interest from Internazionale as well.
  • Bayern Munich is eyeing Cremonese midfielder Guido Della Rovere for their academy setup. Despite limited first-team exposure, the 16-year-old has attracted attention from multiple clubs, including Ajax and Juventus.

As the summer approaches, these transfer rumors will likely intensify as clubs vie for coveted signings to strengthen their squads for the upcoming season. Stay tuned for more updates as the transfer window draws nearer.
