There are a few months yet until the summer transfer window comes along but there’s still plenty to talk about as clubs lay the groundwork for potential deals once the current campaign is concluded.

There are more than enough stories for football fans to sink their teeth into.

Here’s a look at three potential transfer deals that could go through when the market reopens for business in June.

GIANLUIGI DONNARUMMA

PSG are ready to make a move for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to AS. The French giants have invested heavily on outfield players, with the number one spot largely left with Kevin Trapp and Alphonse Areola. But, according to the Spanish publication the Ligue 1 champions want to bolster that area of their team as they attempt to become the biggest club in Europe. The 18-year-old only signed a new deal at the San Siro last summer, but his time at the club has turned sour after fans were angered by the way in which the new deal was signed.

JEAN-MICHAEL SERI

Manchester United are stepping up their interest to sign Nice midfielder Jean-Michael Seri – with doubts over the future of Paul Pogba. According to the Mirror, the Red Devils have reportedly made contact with representatives of Seri amid suggestions Pogba could leave Old Trafford at the end of the season. Seri’s release clause is considered to be around £33 million, but the price could be well worth it for Jose Mourinho to land the midfield this summer, who is equipped with an impressive passing range and voracious work-rate. The Ivory Coast international was set to join Barcelona last summer but the deal fell through.

MATTEO DARMIAN

Juventus will sign Matteo Darmian from Manchester United during the summer, Corriere dello Sport reports. The Italy international, who has fallen down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho this term, will join the Serie A champions at the end of the season. Massimiliano Allegri is seeking a replacement for 34-year-old Stephan Lichtsteiner who’s contract is due to expire in June. Darmian, who turns 29 in December, has played just four Premier League matches this campaign and has not made been included in the team since the 2-0 win over Everton on January 1.

There are a few months yet until the summer transfer window comes along but there’s still plenty to talk about as clubs lay the groundwork for potential deals once the current campaign is concluded.

There are more than enough stories for football fans to sink their teeth into.

Here’s a look at three potential transfer deals that could go through when the market reopens for business in June.

ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI

Real Madrid are ready to pay £132million for Robert Lewandowski this summer, according to Przeglad Sportowy. The Polish newspaper claims the Bayern Munich striker could be heading to Spain after sacking his agent in favour of transfer guru Pini Zahavi – who was central to Neymar’s move to PSG in August. Real are enduring a poor season and are said to be on the cusp of luring Lewandowski to the Bernabeu. The 29-year-old has scored 139 goals in 180 games in all competitions – and could cost Los Blancos in excess of £130 million.

ANTHONY MARTIAL

Tottenham are on high alert as talks over a new contract for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial have stalled, reports RMC Sport. The 22-year-old’s deal runs until the end of next season and despite scoring nine goals in 15 matches this term, his future is in doubt after the Red Devils signed Alexis Sanchez last month. The Frenchman has largely operated from the bench this season with his starting role in the team jeopardised by Jose Mourinho’s preference for Marcus Rashford and Sanchez, and Mauricio Pochettino may look to counter on that. It just depends on whether United would be willing to sell to a domestic rival.

DANIELE RUGANI

Arsenal are eyeing a £25 million swoop for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani, according to Football Italia. The 23-year-old is highly-rated at the Juventus Stadium and was on the bench for their 2-2 draw with Tottenham in the Champions League last week. The Italy international is keen to move away from Turin after struggling for game time this season, making just 16 appearances in all competitions and Arsene Wenger could be poised to swoop. The Gunners boss is looking for defensive reinforcements in the summer after failing to land Jonny Evans last month.

The January transfer window may be shut but there’s still plenty of news from the rumour mill with several moves being put off until the summer.

Here, we round-up the transfer tales that have got everyone talking.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

Manchester United and Manchester City are set to battle it out over to sign Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to the Daily Record. The 22-year-old has enjoyed a breakout season in the Serie A and is drawing interest from around Europe. The Serbian international’s contract does not expire until 2020, but it’s believed the Roma club would consider selling him for £80 million. The 22-year-old has made 32 appearances this campaign, scoring seven goals and contributing to their comfortable fourth place in Italy’s top flight.

Toby Alderweireld

The Times claims Spurs are prepared to sell Toby Alderweireld at the end of the season after reaching a cross roads in talks over a new contract. The Belgium defender, who turns 29 next month, is said to be refusing to budge on demands for £150,000-a-week deal – a salary the club are unwilling to pay for a player of his age. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is said to support the decision, that will allow the money to be spent strengthening other areas of the squad and avoid upsetting other players. Real Madrid and Manchester United are said to be monitoring Alderweireld’s situation.
