Transfer Rumours: Ex-Celtic Man Dembele To Man United, Italian International To Villa
By Sean Meehan

The summer days fly by us, each one quicker than the last. Life doesn't stop for the wanderer, for it needs to continue all the while. Oh yeah, here's some transfer rumours for you.

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.

Moussa Dembele (Lyon to Manchester United)

Dembele only signed for Lyon last summer, moving from Celtic in a £20m deal. Now, he could be on the move again, with Sky Sports News reporting that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will target the French striker should Romelu Lukaku leave Old Trafford.

The former Fulham man scored 15 goals in Ligue 1 last season, with United needing an out-and-out number nine to replace Lukaku should the Belgian leave.

Bullshit-o-meter: 6/10

Mattia Perin (Juventus to Aston Villa)

It seems like Aston Villa's summer spending spree isn't ceasing any time soon. According to Sky Sport Italia, via Football Italia, Villa are interested in bringing goalkeeper Mattia Perin to club from Juventus.

The Italian international was set to join Benfica this summer, but that deal fell through. Perin only signed for Juventus last summer, but found himself behind Wojciech Szczesny in the pecking order.

Jesus Vallejo (Real Madrid to Wolves)

Wolves are keen on bringing Real Madrid centre-back Jesus Vallejo to Molineux on loan, according to MARCA. The Spain U21 international is keen to get first-team football following Madrid's signing of Eder Militao.

This would be Vallejo's third loan away from the Bernabeu, having previously played for Real Zaragoza and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Victor Wanyama (Tottenham to Fenerbahce)

After falling out of favour under Mauricio Pochettino, Victor Wanyama could finally be leaving North London. The Kenyan destroyer is attracting the interest of Turkish outfit Fenerbahce, according to The Mirror.

Wanyama's place at Tottenham wasn't safe before the transfer window, but following the signing of Tanguy Ndombele and the interest shown in Giovani Lo Celso, it seems his time at Spurs is all but over.

Cedric Soares (Southampton to Monaco)

Another out of favour Premier League player set for pastures new is Cedric Soares. The Portuguese international lost his first-team place following the arrival of Ralph Hasenhüttl, with the Austrian instead opting to start academy graduate Yan Valery. Cedric subsequently spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter Milan.

Per Foot Mercato, Monaco have shortlisted both Soares and Real Betis midfielder William Carvalho as they look to bolster their ranks.
