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

Tottenham to award Son with new deal

Son Heung-min has been in scintillating form this season, supplying eight goals and four assists in seven games. Therefore, Tottenham want to tie the 28-year-old down to a new long-term contract. An agreement is close, with Son to earn a similar wage to the club’s top earners. [The Athletic]

Spurs goalkeeper and skipper Hugo Lloris is next in line for a new contract.

Sarr & Deeney committed to Watford

Chairman and chief executive Scott Duxbury insists Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney are committed to helping Watford return to the Premier League. The pair were both linked with exits after the club’s relegation last season. [London Standard]

Man United want £20m for Jones

Phil Jones hasn’t featured at all this season and has now failed to make Manchester United’s Premier League and Champions League squads.

The 28-year-old defender, therefore, is likely on his way out amid reported interest from Fulham. Despite playing him twice in last season’s Premier League, though, United have slapped a £20m price tag on Jones [The Sun].

Coady rules out Liverpool move

After Virgil van Dijk’s potential season-ending knee injury, Liverpool have been linked with moves for several center-backs. But rest assured Wolves fans, Conor Coady is going nowhere!

Jamie Carragher put the Wanderers’ skipper on the spot by asking if he would consider a move to Anfield and got the following response.

“I can’t believe you just put this on me here,” Coady said on Sky Sports. “Not at all. I love playing for this football club every single day and we’ve just beaten Leeds.”

Ozil wanted in MLS

Mesut Ozil’s bleak prospects of reviving his Arsenal career suffered yet another blow, and possibly a final one, in learning he had failed to make the club’s 25-man Premier League squad on Tuesday.

An exit for the German is inevitable, the question is when? He could see out the rest of his luxury contract until next summer or leave in January to return to the pitch. If he chooses the latter route, DC United may offer him passage to the MLS [Daily Star].
