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

Real Madrid make Salah their No.1 transfer target

Mohamed Salah has become Real Madrid’s top summer transfer target. The Egyptian, who is under contract at Liverpool until 2023, has recently refused to rule out a move to La Liga. And amid rumors he isn’t happy at Anfield anymore, Los Blancos are ready to make their move.

Liverpool won’t sell Salah on the cheap, but that doesn’t seem to have put Real Madrid off. [talkSPORT].

Ozil set to end Arsenal nightmare in MLS move

Could the Mesut Ozil saga finally end? The 32-year-old’s Gunners career is effectively over unless Mikel Arteta makes a dramatic u-turn and recalls him for the squad. With this in mind, Ozil has begun talks with other clubs.

The German, who is out of contract at the end of the season, is reportedly in negotiations with MLS side DC United. [Football London]

Ramos ‘rejects’ new Real Madrid contract

The Sergio Ramos contract saga has received a new twist. The Real Madrid skipper has reportedly rejected a one-year contract extension, leaving Los Blancos in a tricky situation. The club policy dictates that players over 30 only get another 12 months on their existing deals, but Ramos wants to be an exception.

As things stand, the 34-year-old will become a free agent in the summer and has reportedly suggested a PSG move could be on the cards. [Marca]

Tottenham put contract talks for Kane & Son on hold

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have supplied the goods regularly for Tottenham. The prolific pair are a key reason behind Spurs’ strong form this season, but the club board intend to put talks over new contracts on hold.

Spurs’ income has declined due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, they won’t entertain any contract talks until the worst of it is over at least. [Evening Standard]

Alena set for Getafe move

Carles Alena is set to complete a loan move to Getafe. The midfielder, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Tuesday, will stay with the Madrid-based club until the end of the La Liga season.

The Barcelona youngster has struggled for opportunities this season at Camp Nou and hopes a move to the Spanish capital will kick-start his career. Getafe have no buy option included in the loan agreement, though. [RAC1]

Liverpool enter the race for Alaba

David Alaba has refused a contract extension offer from Bayern Munich and, therefore, can leave in the summer as a free agent.

Several European giants have reportedly expressed an interest, but Real Madrid have apparently won the race. The defender could sign a four-year contract with the Spanish giants, worth a reported €10m.

But Liverpool are also interested in signing Alaba in a bid to bolster their defense at Anfield. [Guardian]
