1. Arturo Vidal To Inter Milan

What’s the story?

Bayern Munich successfully signed James Rodriguez from Real Madrid this summer, and that could now threaten the places of other attacking midfielders in the side. According to reports, Vidal is one of such players who could now be heading out of the German side, with Inter Milan emerging as top targets.

Should the deal take place?

The player has been a success since joining the Bundesliga champions, but a €50m offer from the Serie A side could influence him to make a switch during the ongoing transfer window. Munich are apparently trying to hold on to the Chilean international, but without a significant raise in his salary package, convincing the midfielder might be a tough task to achieve. Carlo Ancelotti lost Xabi Alonso and Philipp Lahm at the end of last season, and holding on to Vidal is key for experience in the side.

Possibility of it happening

The chances of such a deal taking place seem low at the moment, around the region of 3/10.

2. Moussa Dembele To Chelsea

What’s the story?

Antonio Conte recently purchased Alvaro Morata, and despite him being good enough to lead an attacking line on his own, the boss seems eager to go ahead and buy another striker. According to RMC, the London giants are currently eyeing Moussa Dembele, and have grown further excited after Celtic have agreed to sell the player at the right price.

Should the deal take place?

The young forward scored 32 goals in 48 matches throughout last season under Brendan Rodgers, thus turning him into one of the most wanted players in Europe. Given his bright future prospect and ridiculous amounts of talent, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund have come across as names eager to lure him into their respective squads. If given a choice, one would consider it wiser to make a move to the current Champions of England.

Possibility of it happening

The 21-year-old is valued at £40 million by the team from Scotland, and that is a figure any of the big clubs can easily afford. The chances of him coming to Chelsea are currently 4/10.

3. Jesus Navas To Sevilla

What’s the story?

The former Manchester City player is currently a free agent after his contract with Pep Guardiola’s side was ended, and now he could be heading to the side he started his career with. Sevilla are chasing their former winger at the moment, and are hopeful to bring the Spaniard back to the La Liga in the ongoing transfer period.

Should the deal take place?

Sevilla president Jose Castro spoke about Navas, with his words being: “It’s a pretty generous offer and we’ve made a significant effort. He also would like to play for Sevilla. We can’t say anything more.” It is clear that the Spanish side want his presence in their team next season, and if no other club comes approaching soon, reuniting with his old mates might be the best choice to make.

Possibility of it happening

The chances of Jesus Navas heading to Sevilla are currently 8/10.

4. Diego Costa To AC Milan

What’s the story?

Diego Costa is without a club at the moment, as he prepares for an exit out of Stamford Bridge. Given his status and desperation to find a new club before it gets too late, reports from The Daily Mail indicate that AC Milan have grown an interest in him. The Italian giants have been on a major spending spree so far this summer, and want to further improve their squad by adding a renowned goalscorer like Costa into their ranks.

Should the deal take place?

The Serie A side sparked rumours of a possible deal with the forward after representatives met with Costa’s agent, Jorge Mendes. When asked about the situation, Marco Fassone said: “There is a lot you can talk to him about. Costa is a great player but he is of Chelsea. That’s all.” If a chance to head to the San Siro does arrive, given their ambitions and mighty plans for next season, Diego should head there without thinking twice about it.

Possibility of it happening

The possibility of the Spanish striker wearing the red and black stripes of Milan next season is currently 7/10.
