This morning we are going to take another quick look around Europe to see which transfer rumors have surfaced.
With plenty of big money deals already flying around, and new managers building their squads hurriedly behind the scenes, this summer is set to see plenty of transfer activity.
Let us begin.
Gonzalo Higuain is edging closer to a move to Arsenal this morning. The Real Madrid striker is understood to have agreed personal terms with the Gunners, and a transfer fee of over $30 million is being suggested. The 25-year-old Argentinian forward would be the clinical finisher Arsene Wenger has been searching for since Robin van Persie’s departure. A proven goalscorer to finish off the huge number of chances Arsenal create could be the final piece in Wenger’s jigsaw. (The Guardian)
21-year-old Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama is interesting Premier League sides Cardiff City and Southampton. The Kenyan superstar is said to be subject of a $15 million bid, with the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona previously inquiring about his services. Wanyama is stalling on a new contract at Celtic Park, but could a move to the EPL with Cardiff or Saints take his career to the next level? (Sky Sports)
Reports from Italy have Juventus tabling a double offer for Manchester City’s Carlos Tevez and Aleksandar Kolarov. The rumors suggest that Tevez will join for $17 million, while left back Kolarov could leave for as little as $3 million for a season loan. Manuel Pellegrini may already be looking to trim his squad to try and bring in more new faces, with Tevez’ contract situation still not resolved, City should probably cash in on him sooner rather than later. There could be some truth in this. (Tuttosport)
Pepe Reina has cast doubt over his Liverpool future, as the Spanish goalkeeper stated that he would leave the Reds if a “bigger club” came calling. Arsenal and Barcelona have both been interested in the 30-year-old ‘keeper, and after eight seasons at Liverpool, Reina could be willing to move away to win silverware. Arsenal are desperate for a top quality stopper, and Reina could fit the bill. But he would probably cost them in excess of $15 million, with Liverpool reluctant to sell the Spanish international.

Spanish sensation Isco is moving closer to joining up with his former coach Pellegrini at Manchester City. The Malaga star is hoping his move to the EPL can be finalized over the weekend, with a transfer fee in the region of $32 million reported. Isco stole the show at the recent UEFA U-21 Championships, as Spain defeated Italy in the final to win the title. The diminutive attacker would certainly fit in with City’s other midfielders, such as David Silva and Samir Nasri. But would one of those players leave if Isco does arrive? (Daily Mail)
