Stoke sign Egyptian winger, Sissoko on the move, Swansea to sign 2 strikers

Moussa Sissoko – Liverpool/Dortmund

Le10 sport are claiming that 2 offers have been made for the French midfielder, who impressed during Euro 2016. Real Madrid were said to be interested in Sissoko, however the 2 offers are instead from Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund. The latter is unlikely to be willing to cough up the £35m asking price, however Liverpool could be willing to increase their spending on Newcastle players to £60m following the signing of Wijnaldum for £25m.

Ramadan Sobhi – Stoke – DONE DEAL

Tricky Egyptian winger Ramadan Sobhi has completed a £5 million move from Egyptian Champions Al Ahly to Stoke City. The 19 year old is a crowd-pleaser, and will be looking to show off his skills as he hopes to overtake Marko Arnautovic in Mark Hughes’ pecking order.

Anthony Martial

There were rumours flying about that Martial may be unhappy at Old Trafford after losing his number 9 shirt to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the pacey attacker unfollowing Manchester United on social media. The rumours seem to all be false however, as the player is once again following his side on Instagram and Twitter and looks certain to be staying in Manchester.

 

Swansea City – 3 Players

Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins has made it clear that the Welsh side are far from finished with the transfer window this summer. He plans to bring in at least 3 players, including 2 strikers which are desperately needed as the side are in the process of losing Bafetimbi Gomis, leaving them with no recognised senior striker.

Thomas Vermaelen – Roma

The former Arsenal man has barely made an impact since his move to Barcelona 2 years ago, and was rumoured to be leaving the club for Liverpool. However their slow business has given Roma a chance to push through a deal instead. The Italian side are said to be beginning talks with Barca to find out what their price is for the Belgian defender.

Federico Marchetti – Chelsea

Italian newspapers are speculating that new manager Conte is looking to his native Serie A for a replacement for the potential departure of Asmir Begovic. Chelsea are looking to bring an experienced back-up to Stamford Bridge to support Belgian shot stopper Thibaut Courtois. Marchetti could fit the bill and would cost the Blues around £6m,

Sofiane Boufal – Watford

The Lille attacker has been reported to have said he would be happy to make the move to Premier League outfit Watford. However, current club Lille are holding out for a fee in excess of £15 million for the 22 year old Moroccan.

Liam Moore – Reading

New Reading manager and former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam is keen on signing young Leicester defender Liam Moore. The 23 year old fell out of favour at the Foxes after helping them secure promotion to the Premier League, however it is unlikely that Ranieri would be willing to weaken his squad, given the extra depth they’ll need to cope with the strains of Champions League football next season.
