Aaron Ramsey to AC Milan
Should Ivan Gazidis accept the offer to become new AC Milan CEO he could bring Arsenal midfielder Ramsey with him. Mediaset report that the Rossoneri are considering a number of cut-price transfers for 2019 and want to bolster their midfield. Ramsey, 27, is out of contract next summer and talks over a new deal have stalled, while Gazidis is still considering an approach from Milan to move to San Siro and take over the running of the commercial division of the club.
Anthony Martial to Inter Milan
Inter are considering an approach for Martial in the new year, along with Manchester United teammate Matteo Darmian, as both are on expiring contracts.Tuttosport believe Inter will be in competition with Serie A rivals Juventus for France forward Martial and Italy full-back Darmian who are free agents in 2019. Martial’s relationship with United manager Jose Mourinho remains strained while Darmian declared this summer he wanted to leave Old Trafford.
Ruben Neves to PSG
Neves’ reputation is growing around Europe and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly the latest club to show serious interest in the Wolves midfielder. Calciomercato report that relations between PSG and Jorge Mendes have significantly improved after two years of disagreements over attempts to bring Cristiano Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo to Paris. As a result, PSG will target 21-year-old midfielder Neves and teammate Diogo Jota.
Hector Herrera to Real Madrid
Competition for Porto midfielder Herrera is increasing with Madrid reportedly joining Tottenham, Roma and Inter for the Mexico international. Herrera is a free agent next summer and has shown little inclination to sign a new contract in Portugal, alerting a number of Europe’s leading clubs. However, AS claim Madrid have moved to the front of the queue with coach Julen Lopetegui having worked with Herrera at Porto.
Colin Dagba to RB Leipzig
Having succeeded with prising Jean-Kevin Augustin away from PSG, RB Leipzig also want to bring right-back Dagba to the Bundesliga. L’Equipe detail how Leipzig are big admirers of the 20-year-old’s offensive qualities and with him out of contract in 2020 it opens up a window of opportunity to make an approach either in January or the summer. However, PSG coach Thomas Tuchel rates the 20-year-old highly and talks are also underway at the club over a new deal.
