1. Alexis Sanchez To PSG

What’s the story?

Arsenal’s star player, Alexis Sanchez, has been rumoured with a move away from the club for a while now, and latest reports coming in from The Sun suggest that PSG are currently his most likely destination. The sources claimed that the player was present in a grand Paris hotel at the same time as the French club’s sporting director, Antero Henrique. This has sparked rumours of a possible deal being discussed and negotiated.

Should the deal take place?

Unai Emery was appointed to bring European glory to PSG, and after the sheer disappointment against Barcelona in last season’s Champions League, the manager is itching for a chance to win it this time around. In order to help him in the competition, he is eager to bring names like Sanchez and Neymar to the club during the ongoing transfer window. The French side is known to have no shortage of funds, and hence, could well attract the big names when needed. Arsenal are out of Europe’s most elite club competition for next season, and joining a team waiting to win it might be a sensible move for Sanchez to make.

Possibility of it happening

While Arsene Wenger stays determined on keeping the Chilean in London, the chances of him heading to PSG are still 6/10.

2. Diego Costa To AC Milan

What’s the story?

Diego Costa’s current situation is probably one of the most complicated ones in football right now. As Chelsea signed Alvaro Morata, it is only a matter of time that the striker leaves Stamford Bridge. Given that his next move will likely be a return to Atletico Madrid, the Spanish giants will not be able to play him until January, as a result of their current transfer ban. AS have reported that the Spanish club will instead allow the forward to make a temporary switch to AC Milan, who look to strengthen their squad even further for the upcoming season.

Should the deal take place?

The Italian giants are currently looking out for another star forward this summer, and Costa could be the perfect answer. The player is eager to join a club that will not only offer him game time, but help him deliver performances to allow him to be a part of the 2018 World Cup with Spain. Costa’s move is an inevitability, and joining a side preparing to aim for the sky could be a move that will work wonders.

Possibility of it happening

The possibility of the player being loaned out for a 6-month spell to the Serie A outfit is currently 7/10.

3. Lucas Vasquez To Arsenal

What’s the story?

Diario Madridista has reported that Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in more players into his side this transfer window, as he eyes Real Madrid’s Lucas Vasquez as his next big signing. After the capture of Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac, the French boss is in no mood to stop, as he aims to return to the Champions League, bid for the Premier League title, and turn the fans back into his favour.

Should the deal take place?

The player has been an output of Real Madrid’s academy, and since making his debut in 2015 while appearing 83 times, he has managed to get 8 goals to his name. Zinedine Zidane is reported to be chasing Kylian Mbappe this summer, and that could mean curtains for Vasquez’s career in Madrid. Joining the North London club and helping not only the team, but also his career reach the top, can soon become his ambition and plans for next season.

Possibility of it happening

No contact with the club has been made by Arsenal so far, and with Liverpool also assumed to be interested, the possibility of Vasquez coming to the Emirates is currently 3/10.

4. Federico Bernardeschi To Juventus

What’s the story?

ESPN have come up with news stating that Fiorentina winger, Federico Bernardeschi, could well be making a move within the Serie A. The player is reportedly on his way to Juventus, with a €40 million deal agreed and a medical around the corner.

Should the deal take place?

Juventus have already bought in Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich earlier this summer, and will be looking to add further quality in their wide areas of the attacking third. The 23-year-old winger scored 11 goals last season, and also starred for the Italian U-21 side in the European Championships, wherein he impressed with his performances.

Possibility of it happening

The chances of him coming to the Old Lady are currently 8/10.
