Philippe Coutinho Transfer saga
At the end of this season, Philippe Coutinho’s loan deal with Bayern Munich will expire and the German club is not ready to keep him. His parent club, Barcelona are not also interested in having him back.
Hence, there are reports that his agent, Kia Joorabchian, is working on taking the attacking midfielder to Arsenal this summer. But it will be difficult to imagine that Arsenal would want to pay for his market value of €56 million.
This season, the former Liverpool star has played 32 times for Bayern Munich, mostly as a sub. In those games, he has managed to score 9 goals and has made 8 assists in all competitions.
Willian Transfer Saga
Chelsea’s star, Willian is still very unsettled at the club. He failed to sign a two years deal that Chelsea football club offered him earlier in the year. The 31-year-old Brazilian wants a three year deal or nothing from Chelsea which is against the club’s policy.
According to Frank Lampard, the manager of the club, Chelsea doesn’t offer players who are 30 years and above more than a season contract. But because the club believes in him, he was offered a two-year contract which he refused to sign.
However, there are speculations that Arsenal football club was making plans to offer him a £250,000-a-week contract before the coronavirus pandemic forced football to a halt and affected the club’s revenue.
Raul Jimenez and his Transfer Valuation
Raul Jimenez is one of the shining lights at Wolves and some of the biggest clubs in Europe want to snatch him up from the Premier League club. Some of such clubs are Juventus and Manchester United.
Hence, there are speculations that Wolves are planning to place a huge transfer valuation on the Mexican striker to scare his suitors away.
Josh Adam to Manchester City
Manchester City are about to snatch Celtic football club brightest academy youngster Josh Adam from the club.
The 16-year-old Scotland midfielder has not played for the senior team of the club and has not played for Scotland senior national team. He has only recorded 3 matches for Scotland under-16 in 2018.
