Premier League Transfer Rumours: Deadline Day Edition

Transfer Rumours – Manchester City

According to Alex Milne of the Daily Mirror, Manchester City are set to sign goalkeeper Scott Carson from Derby County.

The 33-year-old featured 30 times for Derby last season as they narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League. However, he was replaced by Kelle Roos midway through the season.

It appears that Carson will deputise as third choice for Manchester City this season should he sign.

Manchester United Looking at Mario Mandzukic?

Sky Sources believe that Manchester United are looking at Mario Mandzukic as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian looks set to leave Old Trafford for Inter Milan.

The Croatian played second fiddle to Cristiano Ronaldo last season at Juventus. However, he did manager ten goals in all competitions.

Mandzukic may not be the only arrival at Old Trafford today. David Wood of the Daily Mail reports that United are looking to complete a deal for Inaki Williams of Athletic Bilbao. The 25-year-old scored 12 goals last season in La Liga.

Wolves Looking for Further Reinforcements at Centre-Back

According to Ashley Preece of the Birmingham Mail, Wolves are looking to sign Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani.

The Italian was a target for Arsenal earlier in the window. However, they failed to pull off a deal, reportedly offering a two-year loan.

It now looks like Wolves are the front-runners for his signature. Last season Rugani made 19 appearances in all competitions.

Aston Villa in the Market for yet Another Signing

Duncan Robinson of the Daily Star writes that Aston Villa are interested in RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin.

Last season the Frenchman scored just five goals as he struggled for appearances with the German club.

He would become the 13th arrival at Villa Park this summer if he signs.
