Neymar worried about transfer saga


Neymar is growing concerned that a prolonged transfer saga with Paris Saint-Germain this summer could distract from his 2022 World Cup preparations, GOAL understands.

Despite wanting to stay in Paris, the club is reportedly exploring a sale, with Premier League clubs said to be intrigued by his possible availability.

The winger is desperate to find success in Qatar and has previously suggested that he could retire from international football after the tournament.

Arsenal, Chelsea & Spurs chasing Torino's Bremer


Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all chasing the signature of Torino defender Bremer - according to 90min.

Inter and Juventus have also been linked with the 25-year-old, but neither side is willing to meet his €50 million (£43m/$53m) asking price.

A bidding war could now erupt between the three London clubs for Bremer, who recorded three goals in 33 Serie A games for Torino last term.

Real flop Jovic set for Fiorentina switch


Real Madrid flop Luka Jovic is set to complete a move to Fiorentina - according to Sky Italia.

The 24-year-old will join La Viola on loan for the duration of the 2022-23 season, with an official announcement expected next week.

Jovic has scored just three goals in 51 games for Madrid since his big-money move from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019.

Lazio are in talks to sign Real Madrid defender Mario Gila - according to Marca.

Red Devils target another Ajax star

TalkSport claims that Manchester United are preparing a bid of £40 million (€46m/$48m) for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, a player who Arsenal are also targeting in this transfer window.

Arsenal have already one official bid for the 24-year-old, though that was turned down by the Eredivisie champions.

The Argentinian international is a player who is familiar with Erik ten Hag given their time together at Ajax, and the Dutch manager is keen on bringing him to Man Utd.

Chelsea in for several defenders including de Ligt and Skriniar


According to TalkSport, Chelsea are interested in several centre-back options including Matthijs de Ligt, Milan Skriniar, and Manchester City's Nathan Ake, as the Blues look to fill the gaps left behind by Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. 

Thomas Tuchel's side were also heavily linked with Sevilla's Jules Konde, with that move a one point looking very likely to happen, though nothing has yet materialised.

Ukrainian international Oleksandr Zinchenko has also been mentioned as a prospective target for Chelsea, as Marcos Alonso's future at the club remains uncertain.

Villareal set to rival Sevilla for Giovanni Simeone


After scoring 17 goals and picking up 5 assists in the Serie A last season, Giovanni Simeone is on the radar of several European clubs, with Sevilla and Villareal the top contenders to get his signature, GOAL can confirm.

Hellas Verona only signed the Argentine last season, but they are willing to negotiate a fee of around €20 million (£17m/$21m) for the striker, which would see them make a profit on their initial investment.

'I'm so happy!' - Lukaku lands in Milan to complete €8m Inter loan


GOAL can confirm that Romelu Lukaku has arrived in Milan to complete his €8 million loan transfer back to Inter.

Lukaku re-signed for Chelsea in a club-record £98 million ($120m) deal after firing Inter to the Serie A title in 2020-21, but the move was an underwhelming failure. 

The 29-year-old has been pushing for a return to San Siro as a result and, with an agreement between the two clubs now in place, he is set to be unveiled as a Nerazzurri player once again.

Dortmund will not consider bids below €120m for Bellingham


According to Sport Bild, Borussia Dortmund will not entertain offers below €120 million (£103m/$126m) for 19-year-old Jude Bellingham.

With three years remaining on his current contract, the German club have no intention of selling him this summer, but are bracing for a host of bids in 2023.

European giants Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United have all shown early interest.

West Ham set to pay Danjuma’s €40m release clause


According to Todofichajes, West Ham are prepared to pay Arnaut Danjuma's €40 million (£34m/$42m) release clause, to sign the Dutchmen from Villareal.

David Moyes' side were heavily reliant on a select few in the forward line at times during last season's campaign, so attacking reinforcements would be ideal for the Hammers in this transfer window.

Inter are willing to offload Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko this summer - according to Calciomercato.

New Valencia boss Gennaro Gattuso is interested in bringing the 36-year-old to Mestalla, but the club may not be able to afford his wages.
