EPL Transfer Talk – 4 August – Leicester lands young playmaker


Outside90 brings you the latest EPL transfer news and rumours from around the world wide web.

Just a day after announcing the signing of Leroy Sane, Manchester City dive into the transfer market yet again for Brazillian wonder kid Gabriel Jesus. The 19-year-old will not make the move to England this summer though, and will link up with the Sky Blues in January 2017.

Following the signing of Jesus, Pep Guardiola is expected to add yet another youngster to his squad ahead of the upcoming season according to the Guardian, on the verge of signing 19-year-old Marlos Moreno on a £15 million deal.

Premier League champions Leicester City have also added to their list by signing Polish international Bartosz Kapustka on a five-year deal. The 19-year-old featured for his country at the recent European Championships, having made his debut back in September 2015.

Chelsea have announced that Mohamed Salah has made his move to Italian side Roma permanent. The Egyptian international spent last season on loan in the Serie A, where he helped the Giallorossi to third position, and moves away from London having failed to hold down a regular place at Stamford Bridge.

In a blow to Arsene Wenger, Wolfsburg have released a statement regarding the future of midfielder Julian Draxler. It had been speculated that the 22-year-old was keen to move this summer, but the German club have stepped in to block any potential move as reported by Metro.

Newly appointed Sunderland manager David Moyes is set to go head-to-head with former club Everton to secure the services of Liverpool striker Christian Benteke. The Daily Mirror rumours that the Reds have set a £30 million price tag on a player who failed to fulfill the hope that came with his transfer at the start of 2015-16.

The Black Cats are also set to face competition from the likes of AC Milan and AS Monaco if they want to sign Benfica winger Eduardo Silva. The Newcastle Chronicle are reporting on links in Portugal, with some even going as far as saying the club have made a £21 million bid for the player.

Ronald Koeman could have another transfer battle on his hands, as the Daily Mail claims Everton and Tottenham are both monitoring the situation involving young defender Tosin Adarabioyo, who is yet to sign a new deal with Manchester City.

As the Paul Pogba saga continues to draw out, it seems to be a matter of when, not if the midfielder will sign for Manchester United. The Daily Telegraph says that the world record deal could be completed before the Community Shield on Monday (AEST), in time for the start of the new season.
