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.

YERRY MINA


Everton and Tottenham are locked in a two-way battle to sign the Barcelona centre-back on loan, The Sun reports.

The Colombian international, who signed for Blaugrana in January 2018 from Palmeiras, has so far struggled to settle at Camp Nou and secure regular game time.

Given Samuel Umtiti has just signed a new contract and Gerard Pique still has a few more years left at the highest level, Mina’s chances of replacing them look slim.

The imminent arrival of Sevilla star Clement Lenglet would also relegate the 23-year-old to fourth choice in the pecking order, opening up the prospect of a loan switch to the Premier League.

ANDRIY YARMOLENKO

West Ham are close to bringing the Borussia Dortmund forward to east London, according to Sky Sports.

The Hammers have submitted an offer in the region of £17.5 million (Dh85m) for the Ukraine international, who only arrived at the Bundesliga giants last summer following over a decade with Dynamo Kyiv.

New boss Manuel Pellegrini feels the goal-getting attacker can bring an extra dimension to his team next term as West Ham seek to improve upon a poor campaign last time out.

Yarmolenko is thought to be keen to test himself in the Premier League and speed up his exit from the Westfalenstadion.

EMIL FORSBERG

Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton are all in the running to sign Sweden’s flying left winger, the Daily Star reports.

The RB Leipzig man, who played a key role during his country’s run through to the World Cup quarter-finals, is expected to leave the German club this summer for around £25 million (Dh122m).

Forsberg, who can operate on either flank as well as move into central positions, may feel, at 26, the time is right to pursue a big move in England.

It does though remain to be seen how easy it will be for a Premier League side to prise him away from the Red Bull Arena.

Forsberg scored Sweden's winner to lead them into quarterfinals.

Forsberg could land a big move.
