What’s the story?

Tottenham fans can prepare themselves for some good news in the weeks to come, as The Independent has reported that the London club could be welcoming a huge talent into their ranks, in the shape of Ross Barkley. After the fee kept coming up as the major issue to stop the deal, it is believed that both clubs have finally reached an agreement.

Should the deal take place?

Mauricio Pochettino has been a long-time admirer of the English midfielder and is desperate to get a man of his talents into the team. The player currently has only one year left in his contract, and is still priced at £50 million by Everton – a figure that frustrated Daniel Levy. However, the Merseyside club finally seems to have agreed a payment suitable enough for a player they are willing to sell, and hence, a deal could soon be happening, with it benefitting everyone involved.

Possibility of it happening

Ronald Koeman has made a huge number of signings so far this summer, and a few more are expected to come. Therefore, the chances of Ross Barkley making a move to Tottenham are currently 8/10.

2. Ivan Perisic To Manchester United

What’s the story?

The Sun has mentioned in its recent report that Manchester United could finally be signing Ivan Perisic in the days to follow, as the player is understood to be joining the club in America in order to complete a deal. The sources have it that a fee of £40 million has been agreed by both clubs involved.

Should the deal take place?

The Inter Milan midfielder has been a target for Jose Mourinho all summer, and what the boss generally wants, he gets. After Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof, the player is set to be the club’s third signing this summer, as the intent to compete for greater glory becomes more evident. The former Borussia Dortmund player is a dominating player in the position he plays and will be a terrific addition to the United lineup.

Possibility of it happening

Jose Mourinho is also said to be chasing Nemanja Matic this summer, and in order to get to that as quick as he can, he will be eager to finalise this deal immediately. The possibility of the Croatian player coming to Old Trafford is currently 7/10.

3. Sergio Aguero To Chelsea

What’s the story?

In what has emerged as the biggest transfer rumour of the summer, Sergio Aguero has sensationally been linked with a shock move to Stamford Bridge, as Antonio Conte grows desperate to bring in a star goal-getter. However, among the ongoing chaos, The Independent has mentioned that Manchester City will not be paying attention to any incoming offers, as they are not interested in selling their striker.

Should the deal take place?

The Argentinian has been the Premier League’s most prolific goalscorer in recent times, as he has helped himself to 169 goals in 253 appearances for the club. However, the striker was seen falling down the favoured ranks under Pep Guardiola, and Gabriel Jesus and his instant impact did not help Aguero’s cause at all. The forward might want to consider the move, as it will, without doubt, make him the number one option in a side that dominated English football last season, rather than competing with a teenage Brazilian for a starting spot at the Etihad.

Possibility of it happening

When asked about the player’s future at the club, the top management said: “Having Sergio Aguero as part of the squad is an absolute must. It has never been in doubt.” Thus, the chances of him making a move to a rival club is currently low-placed at 4/10.

4. Alvaro Morata To AC Milan

What’s the story?

AC Milan have been the sleeping giants of Europe for far too long, and this summer, they seem to have finally woken up. The Italian side has been on an insane summer spending spree, and seems to be building a team that will bring back the glory days with immediate effect. Their transfer window can, however, go from good to better, as La Gazzetta dello Sport have mentioned that Alvaro Morata is on the verge of joining the club and becoming their number one centre forward.

Should the deal take place?

The player is eager to get out of the Santiago Bernabeu in order to receive much needed game time, and is being offered exactly that by the Serie A team. Earlier, he was identified as a key target by Manchester United and Chelsea, but he will now be heading straight to the Rossoneri. Given their ambitions and plans for the immediate future, joining Milan might be an incredible decision that could work wonders by the end of next season.

Possibility of it happening

The chances of him coming to Milan are currently 8/10.
