1. Harry Maguire To Leicester City

What’s the story?

Reports coming in from the Mirror have recently claimed that the Hull City centre-back is a prime target for Leicester City in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Should the deal take place?

The player is a solid defender, and with his side being relegated, he will be looking for a move that will ensure him Premier League game time, and with Tottenham also taking interest, the Foxes might be the best option, as they offer higher wages and much more pitch exposure.

Possibility of it happening

With Newcastle showing interest in Wes Morgan and Leicester looking for ways to have a stronger squad for the coming season, Maguire might fit well in Craig Shakespeare’s plans, and hence, a possibility of 7/10 exists of it happening.


2. Radja Nainggolan To Manchester United

What’s the story?

As Mourinho looks for top quality players across Europe to turn his side into title contenders next season, news from Sky Sports suggests that their current target is Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.

Should the deal take place?

Mourinho’s midfield is pretty strong at the moment, but might just be lacking a cutting edge which can be provided by the Belgian superstar, and despite the player being happy in Rome, one might consider it to be a wise choice to move to one of Europe’s bigger clubs and showcase his breathtaking talents on the greatest stage of all, the Premier League.

Possibility of it happening

The midfielder is currently Roma’s main playmaker, and with Totti leaving at the end of the season and Nainggolan being content where he is, a deal might be hard to crack. 4/10 to this one from our side.


3. Mbappe’s Bid By Liverpool Rejected

What’s the story?

Marca, from Spain, have sensationally reported that Jurgen Klopp is currently after Kylian Mbappe, as he looks to bring his first recognised striker to Anfield for next season. However, in that attempt, a bid was recently made by Liverpool, and despite it falling in the £75 million area, was rejected by Monaco.

Should the deal take place?

Mbappe is, at the moment, the hottest property in Europe, period. The teenager has had a stellar season with Monaco, and his goal-getting abilities are sought after by major clubs like Real Madrid, Manchester United and many more. Despite Liverpool playing the style of football that would be perfect for the wonderkid, Monaco will not settle for anything less that a £100 million, and hence, waiting for better bids, which will surely come, might be the wiser choice.

Possibility of it happening

Klopp might be a fan of Mbappe, but the vice versa can not be surely spoken of, and with bigger and better positioned clubs in and around the frame, Liverpool’s chances of landing the forward are currently as low as 3/10.


4. Kurt Zouma To Marseille

What’s the story?

The Sun published a recent report claiming that Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is currently on the lookout for a move away from Stamford Bridge, on loan, and Antonio Conte is in agreement with the decision.

Should the deal take place?

Marseille are a side hunting for Ligue 1 glory, and with the PSG dominance over for now, they have a chance to believe it could be them lifting the trophy next season. As they look to rebuild their squad, Zouma comes out as a potential target for the French side to aim for, and his strong positioning sense alongside his beast-like physicality will do perfectly for any squad going for the upliftment of their defence. With Conte happy with the system he plays and Zouma being nothing more than a substitute in that, a move away would surely be a good decision to make.

Possibility of it happening

Going out on loan can always result in the player returning to the club as a better and stronger performer, and hence, to achieve game time and be a future Chelsea star, Zouma could make the switch with the chances of it happening being a solid 8/10.


5. Olivier Giroud To Leave Arsenal

What’s the story?

According to Mirror, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is all set to say goodbye to the Emirates in the summer, as he becomes overly frustrated by being second choice to Alexis Sanchez more often than not, which has led to damaging of his chances for getting called up to the France National Squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Should the deal take place?

The French forward is a good finisher who is lethal in the air and possesses an excellent first touch in his skill locker. These attributes are what would earn any striker a role in the starting XI of major teams, and if it isn’t the case at Arsenal, a move away might be a good choice. With Marseille being a club interested, his homeland might be the best place for the striker to go.

Possibility of it happening

With the World Cup on his mind and more game time his aim, a strong possibility of 8/10 could see him make his exit in the summer.
