Things change in the blink of an eye when it comes to football. Football Weeks takes the latest rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score (1.0 = Unlikely; 3.0 = Good chance; 5.0 Done deal), the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are the latest five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on FootballWeeks Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
West Ham United target Carvalho is attracting interest from Monaco. The Portuguese, who was heavily linked with move to the London Stadium in the summer, will reportedly leave Sporting Lisbon in January and the Ligue 1 champions are weighing up a bid. Carvalho first rose to prominence during the 2013-14 season under Leonardo Jardim, which perhaps reveals why Monaco are after him. Slaven Bilic’s side are also thought to have interest in the defensive midfielder while Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants Real Madrid to sign him.
Danny Rose is being linked with a big-money move to Old Trafford. With Rose’s injury problems allowing Ben Davies to establish himself in Mauricio Pochettino’s side, the England international may find it difficult working his way back into the Argentine boss plans, especially after his extraordinary summer interview in which he questioned Tottenham’s aim and transfer activity. The Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is thought to be interested in signing a quality left-back, with doubts remaining over the long-term future of Luke Shaw.
Former Chelsea and Brazilian defender Alex has urged Lucas Moura to leave Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain for Arsenal. The Les Parisiens beat Manchester United to Moura’s signature in 2012 but the winger has fallen down the pecking order under Unai Emery after the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Moura has made just two substitute appearances in Ligue 1 this season and may find the idea of moving elsewhere appealing ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
Chelsea will reignite their interest to sign the highly rated Juventus left-back, with the Premier League champions willing to cough £70 million for the Brazilian’s services. Although the Premier League champions bought Davide Zappacosta from Torino in the summer, Blues boss Antonio Conte was frustrated with the lack of signings and wants to strengthen his squad with midseason reinforcements. The 26-year-old enjoyed a stellar year with the Bianconeri last season, helping them win the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia and finish runners-up in the Champions League.
Crystal Palace are keeping a close eye on the Everton youngster Ademola Lookman who has struggled to make an impression in Ronaldo Koeman’s first team season. Lookman joined Everton in January in a £10m deal and had a dream debut when he came on late to net the Toffees fourth goal in a resounding 4-0 win over Manchester City. However, the 19-year-old has yet to appear in the league this season and may look to Roy Hodgson’s side as his opportunity to gain some valuable top flight experience.
