Transfer Rumours: Tottenham Plan Swoop For Dybala, Eriksen To Man Utd

So many moving parts, so little time. With just over two weeks of the transfer window left, clubs are now ramping up their recruitment ahead of the Premier League season. Today's transfer rumours contain gossip galore.

Welcome to the Balls Bullshit-O-Meter. It measures the validity of a transfer rumour with its scientifically approved formula of measuring the smell of the bullshit emanating from the morning reports. '1' is a fresh meadow with '10' setting off nuclear toxicity alarms throughout the land.

Paulo Dybala (Juventus to Tottenham Hotspur)

transfer rumours

Although we don't like mentioning the same player twice in our daily transfer rumour roundup, we'll make an exception for this bombshell. Per The Evening Standard, Spurs are interested in breaking their transfer record to bring Paulo Dybala to North London.

Having gone 18 months without signing a player, Spurs have already broke their transfer record by signing Tanguy Ndombele this off-season. Dybala's signature would break that once again, although Mauricio Pochettino is a huge admirer of his fellow Argentine.

Christian Eriksen (Tottenham Hotspur to Manchester United)

transfer rumours

With rumours of Dybala coming to Spurs, one man he could be replacing is Christian Eriksen. The Danish playmaker has just a year left on his Tottenham deal and has reportedly handed in a transfer request this summer.

According to The Sun, Manchester United are asking to be kept in the loop with regard to Eriksen's future, with several of Europe's top clubs targeting the midfielder.

Sami Khedira (Juventus to Wolves)

transfer rumours

Sky Sport Italia, via Football Italia, are reporting that Wolves are interested in bringing German midfielder Sami Khedira to the club. The World Cup winner is not part of new boss' Maurizio Sarri's plans, with the likes of Besiktas and a few MLS clubs in line for Khedira's signature.

Apparently, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has already met with the Wolves hierarchy, who are also trying to sign Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Mainz to Everton)

transfer rumours

With Idrissa Gueye looking to have finally left Goodison Park for PSG, Everton have another holding midfielder in their sights. Mainz man Jean-Philippe Gbamin could join the Toffees, per the Daily Mail.

Gbamin's agent has stated that his client would love to join Everton and 'discover the Premier League'. Also, Gbamin can be deployed in either midfield or defence. That means Everton won't have to replace Kurt Zouma, as the French international looks set to stay at Chelsea.

Joe Hart (Burnley to Sheffield United)

transfer rumours

The Daily Mail are reporting that Joe Hart could be on his way to Sheffield United should the Blades' loan deal for Dean Henderson fall through. Hart is now third choice at Burnley and is actively seeking a way out of Turf Moor.

Manchester United are apparently looking for a loan fee for Henderson, who is about to agree a new deal at Old Trafford. With Blades manager Chris Wilder's budget already tight, he may look to former England international Hart.
