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

Valencia announce new manager

Salvador “Voro” Gonzalez has been appointed as caretaker manager of Valencia following the dismissal of Javi Gracia.

Spurs’ next manager to decide Bale’s future

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy will leave the decision of extending Gareth Bale’s loan to the club’s next permanent manager, as per the Daily Mail.

Bale, who scored a hat-trick within 33 minutes last weekend to take up his goal tally to 14 in all competitions in 2020/21, appears to be back to his best.

The Welshman, however, is due to move back to the Real Madrid soon with his loan deal expiring next month.

Spurs could re-sign the winger on another loan deal, but that option will be left to whoever becomes Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor.

Kamara back to Arsenal?

Arsenal are interested in bringing Glen Kamara, who spent two years in the Gunners’ academy between 2015 and 2017, back to the club.

The 25-year-old midfielder also desires to move back to familiar surroundings, with the north London club ready to offer him a five-year contract.

Rangers, however, are reluctant to let the player leave in the summer transfer window and will try to convince him to stay by offering an improved deal. [Football Insider]

BVB drop Sancho asking price

Borussia Dortmund demanded €120 million for Jadon Sancho last summer but are now willing to accept €100 million for him, reports ESPN.

Sancho was heavily linked with a switch to Manchester United last summer but a move could never be materialized due to Dortmund’s reluctance to negotiate down their asking price.

Under contract with the German club until 2023, the 21-year-old winger’s chances of leaving Westfalenstadion at the end of the season have now increased.

Juve give up on Bernardeschi

Federico Bernardeschi has been deemed surplus to requirements at Juventus, with the club looking to offload the player when the transfer market reopens in the summer.

The former Fiorentina man has failed to live up to the expectations during his four seasons in Turin, and the Old Lady have decided not to renew his contract beyond 2022.

Juve are also open to using the Italy international as a swap piece for a bigger transfer deal. [Calciomercato]
