Top Transfer Rumours Of The Day: Lucas Moura, Lacazette, Joe Hart, And More

1. Lucas Moura To Inter Milan

What’s the story?

If numerous reports coming in from various places, including that of Corriere dello Sport (via Football Italia), are assumed to be true, then Inter Milan might be preparing for life without Ivan Perisic by identifying a PSG winger as an ideal replacement.

Lucas Moura is currently eyeing a move in the summer, as he aims for Brazil selection for the 2018 World Cup, and hence, requires much more consistent game time.

Should the deal take place?

The Parc des Princes has offered the winger pretty limited minutes of match time in the season gone by, and with him not being a big part of Unai Emery’s future plans, he becomes a big target for the interested teams in the summer.

The Serie A side are focusing on spending big and matching their rivals AC Milan, as both look to rise back to the top. The sleeping giants of Italy might finally be waking up, and Lucas can become part of something miraculous if he does manage to make the switch.

Possibility of it happening

Premier League clubs have been linked with the creative player for a while now, and Inter will have to go all out in order to beat such an immensely tough competitor. The possibility of them grabbing Moura from the Ligue 1 runners up is currently 7/10.

2. Landry Dimata To Wolfsburg

What’s the story?

Bundesliga teams are extremely active and smart during transfer windows, and the latest side to secure the signing of a talented individual was Wolfsburg. The club took to their official Twitter account to welcome and announce the arrival of Landry Dinata, a young Belgian attacking footballer. The player becomes the fourth signing for the side during the transfer window, as they aim to turn around a disastrous 2016-17 campaign.

Should the deal have taken place?

The U-21 Belgian international played for Oostende last season, where he attracted immense interest after scoring 12 league goals in 29 matches and helping the team grab a spot in the upcoming Europa League qualifiers.

The German club is desperate to regain a healthy Bundesliga status again, after surviving a nerve racking, relegation threatened campaign last time around, which saw them score only 34 goals in the entire season. The move will also help the player grow leaps and bounds in his career, and having the experienced Mario Gomez as a striking partner, will work wonders for both him, and hopefully the team.

3. Joe Hart To West Ham United

What’s the story?

According to the trusted source of The Telegraph, the current Man City goalkeeper could become a major signing for West Ham United in the upcoming summer transfer window. The England number 1 looks to get his career back up and running after heavily falling out of favour under Pep Guardiola and being criticised several times publicly by the boss.

Should the deal take place?

As City have gone ahead and purchased the Brazilian goalie, Ederson, the certainty of Guardiola not wanting Joe Hart is out there for the world to see. The shot-stopper spent his season on a loan spell in Serie A with Torino, and is now itching for a return to England’s top flight. Slaven Bilic apparently wants an upgrade on the current Hammers’ keeper situation, and Hart might perfectly fit the bill.

Possibility of it happening

With Liverpool also rumoured to be interested in the services of their rival’s player, West Ham might have to battle harder than they would have expected. A possibility of 6/10 exists in favour of the deal.

4. Alexandre Lacazette To Manchester United

What’s the story?

As the Red Devils look to seal a deal for Spanish striker, Alvaro Morata, there might be chances that a few last minute problems can come in the way of it successfully taking place.

In the light of such events, L’Equipe have gone ahead and linked the Premier League giants with possibly the only player they were yet to be linked with, Alexandre Lacazette. The source believes that the striker from Lyon provides a healthy backup option, incase the forward from Real Madrid fails to arrive.

Should the deal take place?

After the whole Griezmann saga came to an anticlimactic end, Jose Mourinho is desperately searching for an attacker that will bring pace, physicality and a certain number of goals to Old Trafford.

Morata and United have agreed personal terms and all is nearly in place, but in case the management does not succeed in taking it all the way through, the Ligue 1 striker with 37 goals to his name last season might be an equally wise choice.

Possibility of it happening

One does not see Jose Mourinho letting Morata slip away, but nothing can be said for sure, and hence, a 5/10 possibility exists in favour of the French forward coming to England.
