Even though the transfer window closed over a month ago, the footballing world is rife with rumours. In today’s edition of Football Transfer News, we’ll give you the rundown on the latest news from the rumour mill, in the build up to January.
Transfer Rumours: Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal
Kanté Attracting Interest From Overseas
Spencer Morgan of Mail Online writes that Juventus and Real Madrid could battle for the signature of N’golo Kanté. In Madrid, doubts are emerging of the ability of Casemiro as a holding midfielder. However, the presence of French compatriots Blaise Matuidi and Adrien Rabiot could be crucial in determining Kanté’s next move. It is thought that £70 million would be enough to pry the midfield talisman away from Stamford Bridge. Whether or not Kanté will stay past Chelsea’s season of transition remains to be seen.
Arsenal Considering Move For Boly
According to Mike McGrath of The Sun, Arsenal could make a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Willy Boly. After adding David Luiz to their ranks in the summer, the Gunners are already seeking new defensive reinforcements. Sitting in third currently, Arsenal have conceded 11 goals in their first eight league games.
Boly was Wolves’ match-winner against Besiktas in the Europa League last week. If the 28-year-old continues to impress, he could yet be Unai Emery’s newest recruit.
United Eyeing Dembélé As Lukaku Replacement
In the wake of their 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United, it is clear that Manchester United lack a true goalscoring threat. After selling Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan this summer, they have still not signed a proper replacement. Instead, they opted to move Marcus Rashford into the middle. With injuries still ravaging their side, and the squad thin on quality they are chasing a new star striker.
According to Amitai Winehouse of Mail Online, United have sent scouts to watch Moussa Dembele of Lyon. This is the second time the Red Devils have turned their attentions to the French striker. With six goals in 10 appearances so far this season, could he be the man to inspire more goals from United?
