Below, you’ll find some of the latest transfer news churned out of the Rumour Mill broken down and analysed for your benefit along with our calculated predictions.

AARON RAMSEY – LAZIO TO ARSENAL
Why it will happen: The Gunners man has just one year left on his Emirates deal and this is the second to last chance for the north Londoners to recoup any cash for him.

The summer transfer window is open and across the globe there is a frenzy of speculation as players and coaches look for their next moves.
There is plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.
Here, we look at the latest transfer deals that could happen very soon.
The CSKA Moscow schemer, 22, has been one of the leading lights of the tournament so far after a series of dazzling displays in the group stages – only serving to heighten rumours he will make a big switch this summer.
Indeed, the Old Lady have made it clear they wish to complete a deal for the midfielder, who could be available for a snip at €25m (Dh106m).
It remains to be seen whether Golovin wants to leave his homeland just yet, though a transfer to Turin would prove hard to turn down.
The 24-year-old missed out on Portugal’s World Cup squad after a miserable season with the Camp Nou giants in which he again failed to establish himself as a first-team regular.
Gomes, who joined Blaugrana from Valencia back in the summer of 2016, would apparently like to return to Los Che having previously thrived at the Mestalla.
However, Barcelona are demanding at least €35 million for his signature – the same fee that they shelled out to land him two years ago. As such, that could prove to be a big sticking point over a potential deal.
The Argentina international, who played in Serie A for Palermo before joining PSG in 2011, returns to Italy on a five-year deal after completing a €24.7million (£21.8m) move.
Pastore boosts Roma’s midfield on the same day Radja Nainggolan left to join Inter Milan in a deal which saw Davide Santon and Nicolo Zaniolo move to the Giallorossi.
“I’m very happy to have arrived in Rome, it’s nice to come back to Italy and do it in a great team,” Pastore, who at one point appeared close to signing for Premier League club West Ham, told his new club’s website.
Club sporting director Monchi added: “The arrival of Pastore makes me happy, because we are talking about a player who can excite the fans with his games.
“In my career as a sports director I have taken so many players, Javier is probably the one with the most quality.”
Pastore: “I am very happy to be here at #ASRoma. It is great to return to Italy, and to do it with such a great club.
“I hope to repay in full all the enthusiasm, support and affection that Roma fans have shown me already.” pic.twitter.com/x3qqdymLQU
