Top 5 Transfer Stories Of The Day – March 28, 2018


1. Oblak To Arsenal/Chelsea

It’s the two London giants who kickstart today’s transfer round-up, as they look to find a suitable goalkeeper this summer.

Arsenal have had major concerns between the posts this season, with Petr Cech now deemed unsuitable for the job. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois has proven extremely ineffective courtesy of his recent performances.

Express has claimed that both the Premier League heavyweights have identified a common transfer target in the form of Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak to replace their current No.1s.

However, they won’t be the only clubs, particularly in England, in pursuit of the highly-rated Slovenian shot-stopper, as Liverpool too, are said to be keeping tabs on the 25-year-old.

2. Rashford To Real Madrid

With Los Blancos looking for a suitable striker in the market, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford seems to be a prospect that the European Champions wouldn’t possibly ignore.

Real are keen to replace Karim Benzema, who is expected to leave in the summer, with a young star who has the potential to become a future Galactico. And as per the Spanish outlet Sport, club president Florentino Perez has identified Rashford as a potential replacement for the Frenchman.

3. Isco To Man City

The Cityzens could finally get third time lucky in their chase to land Real Madrid starlet Isco, after already being rejected twice in the past by the Spain international.

According to The Sun, Pep Guardiola is keen to sign the 25-year-old this summer, after having missed out on Alexis Sanchez and Riyad Mahrez in January, and is thus prepared to shell out £75 million for his services.

Meanwhile, Isco himself believes that he might not get regular game-time under Zinedine Zidane next term, with the French tactician preparing a revamp of his own after a horrendous domestic campaign.

4. Fellaini To Monaco

A free transfer always lures in a huge number of clubs, and so is the case with Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini, who is set to leave Old Trafford for free at the end of the season.

Besiktas, Paris Saint-Germain, and Tottenham Hotspur, along with a host of other clubs from England and China, have enquired about the towering Belgian midfielder. And as per Daily Mail, defending Ligue 1 Champions Monaco have also expressed their interest to bring Fellaini aboard.

The Red and Whites are looking to strengthen their squad after having lost a major chunk of their star players last summer, and once again look to undergo a similar state of affairs this year.

5. Lanzini To Liverpool

An apt replacement for Philippe Coutinho is yet to be brought in by the Reds, however, as things stand, West Ham United’s Manuel Lanzini seems to be the one Jurgen Klopp has his mind fixated on.

Argentine publication Diario Ole claims that Liverpool have identified Lanzini to be Coutinho’s successor at Anfield, and with the 25-year-old also almost certain to leave the Hammers at the end of the season, a deal to bring him to Merseyside could be in place sooner than anyone might expect.
