Transfer Rumours: Liverpool Interested In Bordeaux Attacker, Celtic In For Danish International

We're on the precipice of a Bank Holiday weekend, so to celebrate, here's a round-up of the transfer rumours that you can really set your watch to.

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.

François Kamano (Bordeaux to Liverpool)

transfer rumours

Per The Sun, Liverpool are planning a last minute move for Bordeaux attacker François Kamano in a £20m deal. The Guinean international is a teammate of Nab Keita, and would provide cover for Liverpool's fearsome front three.

The attacker scored 13 goals in Ligue 1 last season as Bordeaux finished in 13th.

Peter Ankersen (Copenhagen to Celtic)

transfer rumours

According to the Daily Record, Copenhagen have told long-term Celtic target Peter Ankersen that he is free to leave the club. The Danish international has been on Neil Lennon's radar for the duration of the transfer window.

Ankersen has only one year left on his deal, and the right-back would provide competition to a position vacated by Mikael Lustig.

Donny van de Beek (Ajax to Real Madrid)

transfer rumours

The front page of MARCA has linked Real Madrid to a €60m deal for Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek. Madrid have eyed Paul Pogba for the majority of the transfer window. However, they have apparently turned their attentions to the Dutch international.

Apparently, van de Beek is the first choice for a variety of Real Madrid decision makers, with the only exception being Zidane. The Real Madrid manager is enamoured with working with his compatriot, despite his valuation dwarfing that of van de Beek.

Youssef En-Nesyri (Leganes to Brighton and Hove Albion)

transfer rumours

Brighton target Youssef En-Nesyri has raged on social media over Leganes rejecting an approach from Brighton. Marca have reported that Brighton planned to pay En-Nesyri's €20m in two installments, which was swiftly rejected by the La Liga side.

En-Nesyri then took to Instagram to say "it's sad to feel poorly treated by people who have shown me that they care about money too much."
