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

Pogba signs for Slovenian club.

NK Tabor Sezana has secured the transfer of forward Mathias Pogba, the brother of Paul Pogba.

Everton to revive Rabiot pursuit.

Everton are ready to make another attempt at signing Adrien Rabiot when the transfer market reopens in the summer.

Carlo Ancelotti was keen on reuniting with the former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder at Goodison Park last summer and made several attempts to make it happen, but each without success.

The Toffees now hope a €30 million bid would be enough for Juventus to let go of the midfielder. [Daily Mail]

Man Utd weigh up Valverde move.

Manchester United have drawn up a list of potential replacements for Paul Pogba, whose future at the club remains up in the air.

Federico Valverde is high on that list, with the Uruguayan’s skillset comparable to that of the Frenchman.

However, signing the Real Madrid man would be complicated as he has an enormous €170 million buyout clause on his contract which runs for four more years.

The Red Devils, though, would be willing to offer him an even better offer than his current £120,000-a-week wages. [The Sun]

Valencia have decided against handing forward Kevin Gameiro a new contract. The 33-year-old, as a result, is expected to drop to free agency at the end of this season. [AS]
