transfer rumours

Even when Ivan Perisic's football career is long over, we anticipate this rumour will still circulate whenever the transfer window rolls around.

Perisic hasn't impressed new manager Antonio Conte. The Italian has said that the Croatian winger isn't "adapting" to the role he's being asked to do.

Calciomercato have reported that Perisic is still on United's radar, with the winger potentially becoming part of a deal for Romelu Lukaku.

Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal to Rennes)

transfer rumours

Arsenal captain Koscielny has had a tumultuous summer, refusing to join up with his Arsenal teammates for pre-season training. The French defender is desperate to leave Arsenal, following a season of broken promises and almost 10 years of little to no success. Following interest from a multitude of French clubs, the centre-back has agreed personal terms with Rennes, according to the Metro.

Koscielny's Arsenal side defeated Rennes in the Europa League Round of 16 last season, but the former French international is desperate to return to France.
