The latest transfer speculations and news from the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, and around the world as examined by Futballnews.com.
Here we are going to talk about some of the potential deals that could be coming off soon.
Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur – Newcastle Utd)
In the January transfer window, Newcastle United are interested in landing Tottenham Hotspur outcast Dele Alli on a loan-to-buy deal.
Newcastle United are willing to provide Dele Alli with a temporary reprieve from his issues at Tottenham Hotspur in January, according to TeamTalk.
In order to escape relegation, the Magpies want to sign the offensive midfielder in the upcoming transfer window.
After failing to make the grade at Tottenham under various managers, Dele Alli has suffered a dramatic deterioration in recent seasons. The offensive midfielder, who was once seen as the club’s and country’s future, has made only a few appearances in the last two seasons.
The club is considering selling the 25-year-old because new manager Antonio Conte does not see him as a part of his plans at the club. Tottenham would like to sell him next summer, but a loan move elsewhere might help them receive a higher price at the end of the season.
Sergino Dest (Barcelona – Bayern Munich)
Sergino Dest has already decided to leave Barcelona, with the USMNT player hoping to join Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Dest featured in Ronald Koeman’s XI during the Dutchman’s spell in command of the club after joining from Ajax in 2020, when he was also linked with Bayern Munich.
However, after the return of Xavi Hernandez as head coach, things have changed for the 21-year-old. Following Xavi’s return to Catalonia, the Blaugrana announced the signing of Dani Alves, a former full-back who will be available to play from January.
Dest’s inclusion in the squad was only confirmed by the arrival of the Brazilian, with Oscar Mingueza, Ronald Araujo, and Sergi Roberto all gaining minutes on the right side of defense instead of the natural full-back.
Since joining Barcelona, the full-back has made 57 appearances for the club, scoring three goals and assisting four times.
Icardi (PSG – Juventus)
Mauro Icardi is said to be ‘open’ to joining Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain.It’s also been suggested that he’s already spoken to the Turin side’s new coach, Max Allegri.
PSG has made significant investments in their team this summer as they pursue the Champions League title that has eluded them thus far.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Italy’s Euro 2020 star, is the newest arrival from AC Milan, following Inter full-back Achraf Hakimi. Icardi, 28, arrived from Inter in 2019 after being linked with a move to Juventus.
There is thought to be a clause in that deal that requires PSG to pay about £12 million to the San Siro club if they sell the Argentine forward to another Serie A club.
Dennis Zakaria (Borussia Mönchengladbach – Dortmund)
Denis Zakaria could leave Gladbach for Dortmund as early as January, according to Sky.
According to Sky Germany, Borussia Dortmund is in talks to recruit midfielder Denis Zakaria from Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Dortmund and Zakaria are “in very excellent conversations” about a prospective transfer, according to the German media outlet, with the two parties agreeing on “certain things.”
However, nothing has been settled yet, with Zakaria’s agent reportedly in talks with a number of Premier League clubs.
Zakaria’s contract expires at the end of the season, and the midfielder has been stalling on a new agreement with ‘Die Fohlen,’ who may want to transfer him in January to make a profit.
Jonathan Ikonē (LOSC Lille – Florentina)
Fiorentina and Lille have struck a deal for Jonathan Ikoné’s move, with a base cost of €21 million.
As part of the sell-on clause in his 2018 transfer, the French international’s former club Paris Saint-Germain will get between 45 percent and 50 percent of the cost, netting the league leaders roughly €10 million.
The 23-year-old Ligue 1 winner, who had a contract with LOSC until 2023, will now go to Italy in January, but a few specifics are still being worked out. Especially noteworthy is the commission split among agents. The number 10 has also piqued the interest of Leipzig.
Noussair Mazraoui (Ajax – Barcelona)
This is the rumor that has been swelling for several days. According to information from the Spanish daily Fichajes, FC Barcelona would keep an eye on Noussair Mazraoui, for a potential transfer this winter.
Will Noussair Mazraoui discover La Liga? According to Fichajes, FC Barcelona hopes to take advantage of the Moroccan international’s contractual situation with Ajax Amsterdam, to repatriate him for free.
Indeed, the Atlas Lion, has still not made the decision to extend with the Dutch giant. The 23-year-old right-back, who is having a solid season (author of 4 goals and 3 assists in 10 appearances), benefits from a contract that runs until 2022.
A situation that seems to benefit the Catalan club who hopes to start talks for a free transfer in January. However, the chances of FCB so far remain minimal.
Mazraoui recently indicated that he would like to stay at Ajax, and therefore wants to extend his contract. At present, Ajax and agent Mino Raiola are said to be in negotiations over this new contract.
It remains to be seen whether the interest of FC Barcelona is so concrete that the Moroccan will consider the Spanish adventure.
