Europe’s biggest clubs looking to make moves soon and a busy transfer window expected

“HERE WE GO!”. A Transfer Window isn’t complete until Fabrizio Romano says these golden words. With less than two weeks remaining until Transfer Window shuts close, many big clubs are making moves in the background. Premium Clubs like Barcelona, Arsenal, and Juventus are struggling in their respective leagues due to various issues, and where there are issues, there are rumours, spicy rumours. Let’s look at some of the most probable rumours out there in the market.

Anthony Martial (Manchester United)

Once an undisputable starter for Man Utd, Anthony Martial has fallen down the pecking order for the Red Devils. After a fantastic season in 2019, Martial has been underperforming for the Red Devils for the past couple of years. Netting just a handful of goals in 29 appearances since the start of the 20-21 season, Martial isn’t exactly enjoying a good run for United. The striker has now been convinced that his time at Old Trafford is ending and is now considering moving elsewhere. With United unwilling to sell the attacker in winter, a loan move looks more of a possibility. Barcelona, Sevilla, and Juventus are the leading contenders to loan the Frenchman. 

Diego Carlos (Sevilla)

The Brazilian Centre-back has been linked with rumours of joining Newcastle United since the take-over of the Magpies. The 28-year-old has been a part of Los Nervionenses since 2019. Magpies have reportedly made a bid of €35 million but are yet to get a nod from Sevilla. It is also reported that the player has agreed with Newcastle over contract terms. A Deal might be on the cards in the near future.

Arthur Melo (Juventus)

Labelled as a versatile midfielder, Arthur has always been an agile player with above-par technical ability and dribbling skills. He has also been praised for his playmaking ability and precise passing, which helps him control the flow of play in midfield. The midfielder was destined to be the successor of the Midfield Maestro ‘Xavi’ for the Barcelona side. But with some bad business dealing and questionable transfer policy, he was sent to Juventus in return for Miralem Pjanic. But time at Turin has not been great for the Brazilian. With Juventus play-style hindering Arthur’s game, a move away from Bianconeri can be the answer for Arthur to rediscover his path to greatness. Arsenal has emerged as the main competitor for the midfielder, but Juventus will only sell him if they find a replacement.

Robin Gosens (Atalanta)

The Atalanta’s left-back is undoubtedly a treat to watch on the left flank. His electric pace and never-ending stamina have helped him dominate the left side of Atalanta’s formation for the past few years. But his excellence at his role was bound to grab him away from the clutches of the Italian outfit. The recently ‘rich’ Newcastle have been the biggest suitor for the German full-back. A £30 million, plus an extra £10 million as incentives can lure the 27-year-old away from Bergamo.

Adama Traore (Wolverhampton Wanderers) 

‘A Diamond in Rough’ as several pundits proclaim him, Traore has risen through struggles to stand where he is now. A product of FC Barcelona’s famed youth academy ‘La Masia’, Traore made just a single appearance for Barcelona. After brief stints with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, he has settled with Wolves. A physical beast, Adama averages an insane 4.3 dribbles per game. With his peak yet to come, Adama is being vigorously pursued by Tottenham and Barcelona. A move to either is imminent if the player wants to achieve his dream of playing as one of the best.

Dusan Vlahovic (Fiorentina)

The hottest property in this transfer window, only Erling Haaland has been a more sought-after young striker than the Serbian. With a strong physique, excellent in the air, and precise finishing, Vlahovic is the perfect old-school striker for you. Scoring a whopping 20 goals in 24 games across all the competitions, Vlahovic has established himself as a must-watch player in the near future. Arsenal has been head over heels for the Serbian International. While there are reports of Fiorentina accepting Gunner’s offer, there hasn’t been any official confirmation. Vlahovic can be a major contender in the summer if Arsenal can’t bring him to London. 

Christian Eriksen (Unemployed)

Eriksen hasn’t played professional football since his collapse at the Euros. After his condition was unspecified and his return in doubt, Eriksen and Inter Milan mutually agreed to terminate the contract. Since then, Eriksen has stayed away from football and spent time with his family recovering. But recently, there have been rumours that Premier League sides Brentford, Leicester, and Newcastle have reported making contacts with the player regarding his return to England this winter. Eriksen is a skilful midfielder who mainly excels in organizing attacking plays for his team.

Everton’s Dilemma

Everton has recently sacked their newly appointed manager Rafael Benitez after a poor run of results. With Toffee’s looking to make a comeback to European competitions, they need a talented manager to lead the group of capable youngsters to European heights. Frank Lampard and Wayne Rooney have emerged as favourites for the job. Frank Lampard has previously worked with defending UCL Champions Chelsea FC before losing his place to Thomas Tuchel. Though the Londoner didn’t achieve much success with the Blues, he invigorated the system by focusing on youth prospects. The other man on the list is Wayne Rooney. The former Man Utd player has done an excellent job with Championship side Derby County, even after receiving a 21 point deduction due to ownership problems. This ban forced Derby to remain at rock bottom of the EFL Championship table for the entire season, but Rooney’s work as of late has brought them closer to getting out of the relegation zone. What’s better, Rooney is a former Toffee man.
