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

Arsenal eye another transfer deal from Man City

Arsenal could join Barcelona in their transfer pursuit of Manchester City captain Ilkay Gundogan.

The 32-year-old midfielder is out of contract at the end of this season. City manager Pep Guardiola wants him to stay, but Gundogan’s desire for a long-term deal may prove to be a stumbling block. This might see Arsenal make an offer. The club previously signed Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from the Citizens last summer. [Sport Bild – in German]

Kane & PSG hold transfer talks

Paris Saint-Germain football adviser Luis Campos has been in talks with Harry Kane’s reps about the potential of bringing the Tottenham striker to the team.

Big things are brewing in Paris. Players like Lionel Messi are expected to leave, with PSG intent on signing new talents. Kane is of interest. The 29-year-old striker has a year left on his Tottenham contract. Spurs face a difficult decision if he refuses to sign an extension – will they sell him this year or let him leave for free next summer? [Foot Mercato – in French]

Bayern Munich make their stance clear on Mane & Cancelo

The Bundesliga leaders are willing to part ways with Sadio Mane in the summer transfer window.

The 31-year-old winger has struggled to make his mark at the Allianz Arena. Following his much-publicized fall-out with Leroy Sane in April, his future has come under increased scrutiny. It’s also unlikely Bayern will fork out £60 million to turn Joao Cancelo’s loan deal from Manchester City into a permanent one. [Times – subscription required]

Ings appears set to stay at West Ham

Despite their ongoing search for a new striker, West Ham are unlikely to sell Danny Ings.

The 30-year-old has struggled to nail down a starting spot in the Hammers line-up. He has started just seven times since his £15 million arrival from Aston Villa in January. The same cannot be said for Michail Antonio though. The striker could leave in search of more regular football. [Football Insider]

Neymar is unlikely to return to Barcelona

Despite Neymar being open to a summer reunion, Barcelona aren’t on the same page.

The Catalan club is NOT considering a move for the PSG forward. While Neymar is a superstar on the pitch, there are concerns about his injury-prone history and whether his mindset is truly focused on the team’s long-term success. [Relevo – in Spanish]
