1. Griezmann Rejects Atletico Madrid

The Antoine Griezmann transfer saga seems to be entering its final stages, with the Frenchman set to make a move away from Atletico Madrid next season.

And for those who still have a tad bit of hope left that the 26-year-old striker might stay put, Griezmann, as per French publication L’Equipe, has made it crystal clear that he ‘prefers to win’ trophies – something which the La Liga giants have failed to do on a regular basis.

2. Shaw To Chelsea

Luke Shaw has seen his professional career take a major fall since his move to United, and his recent fallout with Jose Mourinho hasn’t helped the young Englishman’s confidence.

With the heavy dosage of public criticism, followed by losing his place in the starting XI, Shaw is all but certain to make a switch away from Old Trafford, and Daily Mail claim that the 22-year-old could be heading to the Red Devils’ London rivals, Chelsea.

However, the Blues won’t be the only ones in the race to land the left-back, as Man City, Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur have also show a keen interest in Shaw.

3. Malcom To Bayern Munich

One of the most sought-after young talents in modern football, Bordeaux’s Malcom has handed one of his admirers, Bayern Munich, a major boost over a potential transfer.

While talking to Sky Deutschland, the 21-year-old revealed his ‘dream’ to play for the Bundesliga Champions in the future, and with the Bavarians already eyeing to land the forward, a deal appears to be imminent once the transfer window opens in the summer.

4. Fekir To Arsenal

Arsenal have endured a campaign no fan would want to remember, and unless the Gunners miraculously win the Europa League, they won’t mind leaving this season behind as soon as possible in order to prepare for some hardcore revamp.

The expectation to sign fresh talent has taken manager, Arsene Wenger, by a storm due to the lack of quality in his side this season, and according to The Sun, the French tactician has got down to business already, having prepared a gigantic £45 million bid for Lyon ace Nabil Fekir.

The 24-year-old midfielder’s agent revealed that Fekir is eyeing a move away from the Ligue 1 club. However, the North London giants won’t be the sole contenders for his signature, as Barcelona are also believed to be keen to sign the French international.

5. Alisson To Stay At Roma

Roma’s star goalkeeper, Alisson, is currently one of the hottest properties in Europe, with clubs including Liverpool and Real Madrid vying to get his signature.

However, as per The Sun, the Brazil international’s agent, Ze Maria Neis, has made it clear that the 25-year-old is  ‘focused’ on Roma, but along with that, he has also ruled out committing his future to the Serie A giants for the time being.

Alisson will reportedly decide his future at the end of the season, before he head’s off to the World Cup in Russia.
