Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Aleksandr Golovin to Monaco
Monaco's Russian Vice President Vadim Vasilyev has revealed his side are to make a move for his compatriot Golovin. The CSKA Moscow midfielder was one of the standout players for the host nation at the World Cup, and has attracted interest from across Europe as a result. "We made CSKA a proposal for Golovin," Vasiliev told Russian outlet Sport Express. "I cannot reveal the amount of the transfer, but it is very worthy. The duration of the contract? Standard, five years."
Danny Rose to Paris Saint-Germain
The French champions continue to search for a solution to their left-back problem, and Tottenham's England international is the latest player to be linked. Le 10 Sport are reporting that Paris Saint-Germain's interest in Rose is "concrete", though an official approach is yet to be made. Rose was on the fringes at Tottenham last season, and has previously been linked with several clubs including Manchester United.
Mario Mandzukic to Borussia Dortmund
Despite a number of signings already this summer, the Bundesliga club are still in the market for a striker, and German outlet Bild claim Croatia star Mandzukic is a target. The 32-year-old is on the books at Italian champions Juventus, but they recently secured the high-profile signing of Cristiano Ronaldo which could affect the playing time of other forwards. Dortmund are convinced Mandzukic's performances at the World Cup show he can still perform at the highest level.
Ante Rebic to Manchester United
Jose Mourinho's side have long been linked with a move for Croatia's Ivan Perisic, but they are now in the running to sign his compatriot, Rebic. The winger caught the eye during Croatia's run to the World Cup final and his club, Eintracht Frankfurt, will be expecting bids to come in on the back of these performances.
Gonzalo Higuain to Chelsea
New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is eyeing one of his former Napoli players as he looks to reshape the Stamford Bridge club to suit his playing style. With Alvaro Morata's future uncertain, the Evening Standard are reporting that the Juventus striker is top of Sarri's list, and the West Londoners are willing to pay £53 million for his services. On Wednesday the club met the Argentine's agent and brother, Nicolas, to hold talks over a three-year £127,000-a-week contract.
