Transfer Rumour Roundup: Hartbreak For Joe As Man United Swoop For Jose Fonte

Transfer Rumour Roundup: Hartbreak For Joe As Man United Swoop For Jose Fonte
By Jack Cahill

The 31st of August grows ever closer, and as it does the transfer window slowly eases shut. As the days go by the panic increases and clubs looking rather thin begin to get itchy trigger fingers. First come the rumours, then come the panic buys. Wonderful!

Transfer Rumour Roundup

Joe Hart is being forced out of Manchester City by Pep Guardiola, that much we know. Now The Telegraph  are reporting that both Everton and Liverpool are looking to rescue him from the Etihad. Klopp may want to look into signing the Englishman or face serious health issues as Mignolet gives him consistent palpitations. BBC are reporting that Hart could leave on loan for the season.

The Liverpool Echo are reporting that Liverpool are set to pile even more misery on Arsene Wenger's plate by signing long term target Shkodran Mustafi. Arsenal are deep into injury issues and we've only seen one Premier League game, may be time for Wenger to bite the bullet and buy a bloody defender already!

Yaya Toure, Wilfried Bony and Eliaquim Mangala are all set to become casualties of Pep's Manchester reign according to The Guardian. Any chance of three for the price of one?


Liverpool have had a £13m bid for Gary Medel rejected according to The Mirror. The 29-year-old last graced the Premier League in the 2013/2014 season with Cardiff.

The Guardian are reporting that Manchester United are looking to bring Southampton's Jose Fonte to Old Trafford. Marcus Rojo could be used as a makeweight to bring the Portuguese to Manchester.

The Sun are reporting that Liverpool have had a £25m bid rejected for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Mahmoud Dahoud. The German club have reportedly told Klopp and Liverpool not to bother making an improved offer. The German u-21 has not yet signed a new contract with the club however...


Sky Sports are reporting that Arsenal are eyeing up a move for Omer Toprak as the deal for Mustafi seems to be stalling. Toprak is a 27-year old Turkish international who currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen and could offer Wenger a crucial plug in a leaking defence.

Not only that, Arsene Wenger is also reportedly looking at Simon Kjaer of Fenerbache. Also a centre back, the 27-year old is a Denmark international and could be the cure for Arsenal's wavering defence. The Daily Star have also listed Barcelona's Jeremy Mathieu another potential option.

It's okay Arsenal fans, if you don't manage to sign any of the defenders you've lined up, take heart in the fact that you're being linked with 15-year-old Ethan Ampadu. The Telegraph are reporting that young Exeter man could link up with his father, who is a a youth coach at Arsenal.



Manchester United are set to launch a £30m bid for Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa, or Gabigol as he's known for some reason. The 19-year-old is wanted by the likes of Bayern Munich and Athletico Madrid but The Sun believe United to be favourites to sign him.

After being dropped for last night's game against West Ham, Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas is looking for a way out of Stamford Bridge. The Daily Star are reporting that AC and Inter Milan are interested in bringing the Spaniard to the San Siro.

Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United's Matteo Darmian is attracting attention from both Napoli and Roma. Speculation has been circling the Italian after Mourinho opted for Antonio Valencia at right-back in their season opener.


And finally...

Alberto Moreno will not be leaving Liverpool according to Jurgen Klopp. Sorry to get anyone's hopes up.
