1. Steven N’Zonzi To Juventus

What’s the story?

According to Italian source (via Football Italia), Juventus are all set to target La Liga midfielder, Steven N’Zonzi, in the upcoming transfer window. The Old Lady’s director, Beppe Marotta, is ready to fly to Spain in the week to come and negotiate a deal for the player for a fee that will be lesser than the asked £40 million.

Should the deal take place?

The former Blackburn midfielder has come a long way in his career due to his passing and vision attributes, that have attracted attention from the Serie A giants. If reports are assumed to be true, the player almost signed for Allegri earlier, before penning down a new contract in Spain and increasing his release clause value. N’Zonzi might be a good fit in Juve’s star-studded lineup and will perfectly balance the middle of the park in between Sami Khedira and Pjanic.

Possibility of it happening

The Italian Side apparently mean business in this deal, and hence, a huge 8/10 possibility exists of it taking place.

2. Corentin Tolisso To Bayern Munich

What’s the story?

As per reports mentioned in L’Equipe (via, Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich are very close to signing and securing the services of Corentin Tolisso, the midfielder from Lyon. The two clubs are apparently officially discussing the final terms of the deal, which could see the player head to Germany for a fee of approximately €40m.

Should the deal take place?

The midfielder has been eager to move on and ahead from his current French club, and with the stalling of Alexandre Lacazette’s departure, this might be the best time to do so. The player aims to be a part of the France National Team for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and he believes that the best way of accomplishing that is playing for a side other than Lyon. However, joining Munich and their super-star packed lineup might result in him struggling for ample game time, and hence, can prove to be the wrong decision in the immediate future.

Possibility of it happening

The rumours have it that manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has personally been in contact with Tolisso recently, and thus, a strong 7/10 chance exists in favour of this deal.

3. Alexis Sanchez To Manchester City

What’s the story?

As Arsene Wenger and Arsenal seem to be desperately running out of time to keep their main man Alexis Sanchez at the club, Manchester City appear to be eagerly growing in their interest over the player and his future. According to Sky Sports, Pep Guardiola is currently planning a move for the Chilean, who looks for a move away from the Gunners and into a club that offers Champions League football and aims for titles.

Should the deal take place?

Manchester City have taken away players from under Wenger’s nose before, and with them already on a spending spree this summer, Sanchez could very well be next on the list. The attacker managed to score 30 goals in all competitions last season, and could use this prime form and unmatched abilities in bigger competitions and alongside equally talented players.

Possibility of it happening

As certain as Alexis’s departure seems from the London club, Manchester City do not come across as the preferred destination, hence leaving the deal hanging, and having a possibility of 5/10 of going either way.

4. Fabinho To Manchester United

What’s the story?

Jose Mourinho and his side from Manchester have been linked with virtually every player that plays the sport in the weeks gone by, and to further add to that list, The Sun recently surprised one and all by reporting that Fabinho is on the verge of signing for the Red Devils.

Should the deal take place?

The player has been under the Portuguese boss’s radar for months now, and after grabbing Victor Lindelof from Benfica, Fabinho is deemed to be next in line. The versatile Brazilian player has been mightily impressive with Monaco throughout last season, and could be perfect support for Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera in the middle of United’s park.

Possibility of it happening.

Although reports claim that the move is all but done, there is no real evidence or proof to back it up, and hence, a 5/10 chance exists in favour of this deal.

An attacker with his words, and defends each of them with pride. A love for the game which goes hand in hand with his will to forever write. A graduate in the course of advertising and a hopeful to be author. Herrera for the win.
