Under two weeks now remain until the season’s big kick-off and Europe’s leading clubs are still scrambling around to complete their squads ahead of the season’s opening day.
It means the rumour mill is in full swing and here, Sport360 rounds-up the day’s leading transfer stories.
FLORIN ANDONE GIULIANO
Cordoba to Deportivo
Depor’s attempt to climb up the La Liga standings has seen them turn to the Romania forward, who leaves Cordoba after scoring 26 times in 56 league games. Andone comes to his new club after playing three times at Euro 2016.
Gremio to Zenit
€7m (Dh28m) – DONE DEAL
A deal has been struck to bring the attacking midfielder back to Eastern Europe. Newly-installed Zenit coach Mircea Lucescu is clearly a fan of the 26-year-old from his time in Donetsk, where he led Shakhtar and Giuliano played for Dnipro.
Ajax to Napoli
€35m (Dh141m) – FEE AGREED
Napoli have wasted no time reeling from the loss of star striker Gonzalo Higuain, agreeing a fee to bring emerging Poland striker Milik to the San Paolo. The 22-year-old had a bravura 2015/16 with Ajax, scoring 24 times in 42 games. With his age, even better is to come.
Stoke City to Everton
€15m (Dh60.6m) – IN TALKS
New Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has turned to the giant Austria forward as he looks to reinvigorate his squad. The Daily Mail reports talks are under way between the two clubs for the player, who has one year remaining on his deal at Bet365 Stadium.
PSG to Juventus
€30.5m (Dh123.1m) – NEW TARGET
If Paul Pogba makes a switch to Manchester United, L’Equipe report that Juve will turn to his partner in France’s midfield for a replacement. PSG coach Unai Emery is supposed to be open to a sale after bringing Grzegorz Krychowiak with him from Sevilla.
