Welcome to another edition of Football Transfer News, brought to you by Last Word on Football, in today’s installment, we discuss the future of Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha, where Anthony Martial may be heading, what Italian side are courting Matteo Darmian and the club who have had a bid rejected for Nigerian World Cup star Ahmed Musa.

Wilfried Zaha pushing to go

Ivorian international Wilfried Zaha is reportedly desperate to join Tottenham Hotspur. The Crystal Palace star has a rumoured £70 million price tag on his head. This has deterred most suitors, including Spurs. The North London side are reportedly considering offering cash plus players to secure the wingers’ signature. French pair Moussa Sissoko and George Kevin N’Koudou are the most likely to be offered to Palace in any deal for Zaha.

Martial considering transfer request

French attacker Anthony Martial is apparently considering handing in a transfer request. The youngster was reportedly furious to miss out on France’s World Cup winning squad. The former Monaco star blames his lack of appearances last season for his omission from the squad. Chelsea, Tottenham and German giants Bayern Munich are the reported frontrunners for the players signature. However, a reported price tag of near £100 million may deter potential buyers and as a result, Martial may need to force the transfer.

Darmain’s Italian escape

Matteo Darmain is on the reported of Serie A giants Napoli. The Neopolitan side have been attracted to the Italian international due to his versatility along the backline and Darmain has found playing time at Old Trafford limited so is rumoured to be keen on the move.

Ahmed Musa bid rejected

Leicester have rejected a bid for Nigerian World Cup star Ahmed Musa from Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr. The attacker has found playing time limited since his move from CSKA Moscow. Turkish sides Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are monitoring the situation. Leicester hope to recoup the £16 million they paid for Musa back in July of 2016.
