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

Premier League pair target Ligue 1 forward

The 21-year-old Canadian, who was also linked with a switch to the Premier League last year, could head to England just 12 months after moving to France.

Barcelona face competition in Depay pursuit

Memphis Depay has emerged as a top summer transfer target for Juventus, according to Calcio Mercato.

The Serie A champions are targeting the Dutch forward, who has hit 18 goals in 34 games in Ligue 1 for Lyon so far this season, as they look to add depth to their attack.

However, Juve would be able to afford Depay only if they secure Champions League qualification.

PSG ready to offer Messi three-year deal

Paris Saint-Germain are preparing an “unbeatable” contract offer for Lionel Messi in order to tempt him to leave FC Barcelona this summer, as TNT Sports reports.

The French giants are ready to offer the mercurial Argentine an initial two-season deal with the option to extend it for a further season.

Messi, as things stand, is set to become a free agent as he is yet to renew with Barcelona despite his current deal expiring at the end of the term.

Lingard to force West Ham move

Jesse Lingard will try and force to join West Ham on a permanent transfer this summer, claims Eurosport.

The midfielder swapped Old Trafford for the London Stadium in January after growing frustrated for consistent minutes on the pitch.

He has since been in a sensation form since then, and the England international wants to stay put if the Hammers qualify for European football for next season.
