Transfer Rater: Toby Alderweireld to Manchester United, Felipe Anderson to Chelsea
Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Mohamed Elyounoussi to Leicester City
The Basel attacker is a man in demand, ESPN FC sources report. Leicester, Arsenal and Southampton all had scouts in attendance as the 23-year-old put in a man-of-the-match performance against Manchester City on Wednesday evening. Elyounoussi scored the equaliser and set up the winner as the Swiss side recorded a famous victory over the Premier League champions-elect. Leicester may view the versatile winger as a replacement for Riyad Mahrez, with the Algerian still eager to move to a Champions League club in the summer.
Jakub Jankto to Arsenal
Udinese midfielder Jankto looks set to be on the move this summer with his agent, Giuseppe Riso, confirming that he will hold talks with Arsenal in the near future. The Czech midfielder's agent claims Udinese's owners wouldn't allow talks over his future in January and wanted to let him develop first. However, he then went on to confirm talks will be held with Arsenal during an interview with RMC Sport. "Milan and Arsenal are attentive to youngsters, we'll definitely talk with them," he revealed.
Felipe Anderson to Chelsea
Former Manchester United transfer target Anderson could be on the move to the Premier League this summer. Chelsea have been impressed with the Lazio man's form over the past couple of seasons and are ready to act to bring him in. With uncertainty surrounding the future of Willian, Chelsea see Anderson as an ideal replacement. Tuttosport claims Lazio will listen to offers in the region of £20 million for the 24-year-old, with manager Simone Inzaghi not seeing eye-to-eye with the winger.
Mousa Dembele to Juventus
Dembele impressed in both legs of Tottenham's Champions League round-of-16 tie against Juventus, so much so that the Serie A champions are now keen to add him to their midfield ranks. The 30-year-old is a key part of Mauricio Pochettino's team but he only has just over a year left on his current deal. Reports suggest Spurs have been looking at midfielders, too. According to Calciomercato, Dembele is now a top midfield target for Juventus. That could have something to do with Real Madrid's interest in their long-term target, Emre Can of Liverpool.
Toby Alderweireld to Manchester United
Various outlets are suggesting that Alderweireld, along with teammate Danny Rose, is a summer transfer target for United. With Tottenham reluctant to meet Alderweireld's wage demands, his representatives have begun to invite offers from clubs who might be interested in signing the Belgian centre-back, and Jose Mourinho is currently in the driving seat. The 29-year-old has a clause in his contract which allows him to leave Tottenham in the summer of 2019 for just £25m, so they may want to act sell quicker to secure a bigger fee.
