With the international break coming up, you can expect an uptake in transfer speculation, but we prefer to bunch our rumours together when the likelihood of such moves remain far away.
Keylor Navas is claimed to feel unappreciated at the Bernabeu, and has become unsettled because of it. Real Madrid are continually linked with bringing in a top goalkeeper to replace him, leaving Liverpool and Arsenal to keep tabs on proceedings.
Another La Liga giants players are believed to be on Arsenal’s radar, with Rafinha supposedly being eyed for a move. The midfielder has failed to make the cut at the Nou Camp since making his debut back in 2011, and at 24 years-old should be keen on finding regular football in order to resurrect his career.
Oguzhan Ozyakup us another player who we have been linked with previously, but he was actually sold by our club back in 2012 to Besiktas, and the player just so happened to change his international allegiance to Turkey from Holland in the same summer. The midfielder has since cemented his place in his international side is tipped for a move to a bigger side in Europe, with Arsenal claimed to be eyeing a £10 Million bid.
Another midfielder tipped for a move to North London this January is Frank de Jong. The young midfielder is supposedly set to be the subject of a £5 Million bid, with preliminary talks claimed to have been held already.
Another young star who is tipped to move to a bigger club in the near future is Dayot Upamecano, who has earned his place as one of the world’s most coveted young defenders. All the big clubs are keeping tabs on his progress with RB Leipzig, and the 19 year-old is currently tied down a contract with a £89 Million release clause. Barcelona are believed to be leading the chase for his signature, but a move may boil down to who is willing to make the big jump and pay the huge fee.
Can you see any truth in any of the above rumours? Which target would improve our squad most?
